    If you could sum up Roses Are Red in three words, what would they be?

    A Good Read!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Alex Cross discovers a hint to whom he believes the person they are looking for is; so each time this person is exposed, it is the wrong one. Yet one more bad person is off the street. So now you, hope the evidence shows this next person is the one and it's not but to many are dieing an you are wondering whose next. (can't get to specific)


    What does Peter Jay Fernandez bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed his reading.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The story line was good, I was just ready for more Roses Are Red pulls you in one direction, gets you comfortable then spins the chair around before yanking it from under you. It leaves you bloody and wanting more.

    When the home of Alex Cross's oldest friend, Ellie Cox, is turned into the worst murder scene Alex has ever seen, the destruction leads him to believe that he's chasing a horrible new breed of killer. As Alex and his girlfriend, Brianna Stone, become entangled in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington D.C., what they discover is shocking: a stunningly organized gang of lethal teenagers headed by a powerful, diabolical man--the African warlord known as the Tiger.

    Story
    What did you love best about Cross Country?

    In Cross Country, Alex Cross travels to Africa and learns more about the association of the death of an old friend and the foriegn trade industry.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cross Country?

    Cross Country took the African plight and made the reader assume a position in Africas' battles. The reader is unable to turn away from what's happening to humans by the hands of others for diamonds or oil. Families uprooted, daughters and mothers raped, entire families killed all for profit of the government (but which one).


    Have you listened to any of Peter J. Fernandez and Dion Graham ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to Peter J. Fernandez and become very comfortable with his style and tempo. I enjoy his tone and levels. Dion Graham, I enjoyed in this read. Not sure if I heard Dion read before.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I enjoyed the book eminently, I could have listen to it all in one sitting


    Any additional comments?

    James Patterson reveals his concerns for the people throughout the World and used Cross Country and Alex Cross to ensure his readers do not remain in the dark. I appreciate this.

    Alex Cross was a rising star in the Washington, D.C., Police Department when an unknown man gunned down his wife in front of him. His desire for vengeance was placed on hold as he raised his children himself. But when a case triggers a connection to his wife's death, Alex may finally have a chance to catch the killer.

    Story
    Would you listen to Cross again? Why?

    I would most definitely listen to "Cross" again, as a matter of fact, I almost did.


    What other book might you compare Cross to and why?

    I would say this is a close comparison to the "The Weasel"


    Have you listened to any of Peter J. Fernandez and Jay O. Sanders ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I believe I have heard these two readers together, and I enjoyed the movement of the story, the grab the listener an make them hold on type readers.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Never in one sitting if I can help it. I would take an hour or so break process the information and began again. Too intense, to much information for one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I was really getting caught up in this "Butcher" character, then I realized James Patterson build him up to much to be real.

    In a real college town, the buddy system would have came into play, no one would have been allowed to walk alone. Those that were alone, would have carried some sort of protection, pepper spray, pocket knife, concealed weapon, etc. and knew how to use them.

    I don't believe in a hitman, who can't hit the side of a barn and I believe every mean hearted person that read this story laughed to read people thought they were so incompetent.

    But for entertainment, I thought it was awesome. It kept me wanting more; not knowing how Mr. Patterson was going to wrap this one up but he did and the Alex Cross saga continues.

    Would you listen to Mary, Mary again? Why?

    Maybe, (Yes); A womans' murderous adventures of the past return to destroy a city.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mary, Mary?

    Finding that love can go awry on so many levels;


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Narrators would bring their own tempo to the story; even a new timeline.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book could bring the reader to sadness in Alex Cross' life and a place of rejoicing when Mary is caught


    Any additional comments?

    Mary, Mary. is a very good story. I was pulled into this story as if it was on the daily news. I was really glad it was only a story. I would walk around singing the chorus "Mary, Mary why you bugging" trying to solve the cases in my head. I did enjoy the book quite a bit.

    Would you listen to London Bridges again? Why?

    I would listen to this story again, not because I missed any portion but because it grabbed me early and would not let me go.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Other than Alex Cross, I would say the Weezel. the Weezel continued to pop up at the most in opportune time. Yes, he was following orders and as soon as he took matters into his own hands . . . .


    What does Peter J. Fernandez and Denis O'Hare bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Each brought the experience of being there at the scene, not being able to pull away because you were in pursuit or about to raid a house. You were there in the action with Alex and didn't want to leave.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If time would have permitted, yes. But the times I had made it great, Wow.


    Any additional comments?

    The echoing of the chapters was a little annoying other than that I really enjoyed this story. I don't know how Mr. Patterson pulls these situations together so quickly, but I am so glad he does. Thanks

    Alex Cross' first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks like a shadowy figure known as the Wolf, a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organized crime, is behind this business in which ordinary men and women are sold as slaves.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Big Bad Wolf the most enjoyable?

    The Big Bad Wolf portrayed Alex Cross more as a Family oriented man even though he spent his time balancing work, training and chasing the Big Bad Wolf. It appeared at any moment he would turn in his badge and dedicate his life to holding his family together. Then Jame Patterson throws in a twist and as always the reader is left wondering what will Alex do and what will happen next?


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, Not knowing who the Wolf was or will the Wolf affect Alex's family? Not knowing who was the inside man/woman? Asking myself has Alex had enough of the FBI's lack of street smarts, it will get them killed.


    Have you listened to any of Peter J. Fernandez and Denis O'Hare ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think so, not sure. But this was good. It kept my attention, no slurs or studders. Very enjoyable


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I never listen to a book in one sitting, unless I'm on a long trip. I have to take a break to digest what I just heard.

    Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive. Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others.... I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others - including John. But so are they....

    Would you try another book from Pittacus Lore and/or the narrators?

    Yes


    What did you like best about this story?

    In this story I realized the guards goal was to become Pittacus Lore to defeat the enemy


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    No changes to the narrator but the recording messed up bad on Chapter 16


    Did The Rise of Nine inspire you to do anything?

    No inspiration from the Rise of Nine - I did not see number nine excelling or the guards who were identified doing anything exceptional. So maybe. The Rise of Nine left me wondering who or what will rise?

    The latest from the author of When the Wind Blows and Kiss the Girls reveals Patterson at the peak of his power and is easily his most dynamic and compelling psychological thriller to date. Here is a chilling villain, a love story of great tenderness, and a plot of relentless suspense and heart-pounding pace.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The suspect in this story was pure evil and believed he was smarter or above the law.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I am pulled in by the various ways Alex Cross is pushed to the edge, yet he holds it together enough to do the right thing to catch the criminals


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Kramer?

    Andre Braugher or Daniel Whitner maybe even Tim Cain


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book provoked anger in me because Shaffer was such a smart mouth; I don't believe I would have had the patience of Alex Cross.


    Any additional comments?

    My biggest complaint was Michael Kramer reading as an asthmatic was the thing I had to force myself to get pass. Mr. Kramer does not read all his narratives in this labored manner. I just didn't understand
