I fell in love with Keller in Hit Man but this one just doesn't take his character as far. Still a fun read but misses the mark. Block is not as good of a narrator as the one in Hit Man. The individual stories are not quite as intriguing and quirky. Seems to ride the coat tails of Hit Man without being as fun.
This was one of the worst books I've listened too. It sucks. The story is so convoluted and unconnected that it is impossible to keep track of. I was at least 2 hours into it before I realized there was a story. There are lots of characters who have no relationship or input to the story. The attempt at character development for the main characters is minimal at best. Although there are some funny scenes and comments, I have no idea how people like this book. Although it is violent, that didn't bug me. Don't waste your money.
Does Patterson even write his own books anymore or are they all written by the collaborators? This book was cheesy and read like a B movie. It was over predictable and seemed like something I had already read/heard but with different characters. The characters had no character at all. Gone are the good old days of mystery and intrigue from Patterson novels of the past. I might continue with Cross books but no more Patterson.
No. Too cheesy.
Wasn't there an "I Alex Cross"? Come on Patterson, think of something different? With that said, I truly enjoyed the novel. The storyline was suspensful, fun and easy to follow. Just the right amount of character building and Mike Bennett's personal life. No overly corny love scenes like Patterson always writes into the Alex Cross books. Alex Cross used to be my favorite cop character but Mike Bennett has replaced him. The ending was disapointing. The book was not long enough to end mid-story like that. Patterson better not take another year to get the next one out because we need to know the ending.
I really enjoyed this book. The female narrator was not nearly as bad as the other reviewers indicate. The story is quite interesting and intriguing.
Interesting and fun plot but the story could have been written in 1/2 the length. Too much story telling and detail for every move and thought. The main characters personal problems are reiterated way too much and described in unnecessary detail.
The story is a bit dry. Not the level of suspense we've had with Cross novels of the past. We've also had enough Kyle Craig. Hopefully this is his true demise. Too much Alex and Bree action. This is a suspense novel, not soft porn. The narrator doesn't compare to Cross narrator's of the past.
Although a bit gruseome this book was suspenseful and kept my attention. I agree with some of the other reviewers that the end was terrible. All of a sudden it just went into a nose dive without much involvement from the main villian. This book would have been very good if it was tweaked into a Cross book. The narrator's female voices were also terrible.
This book seriously lacks the detail and insight I would expect from a title like this. Just doesn't go into the extreme drinking, playing and F@#kin I was expecting.
This Keller installment just didn't do it for me. Too much downtime in the middle. Without giving anything away, all I can say is it lacks Keller's usual quirkyness in making his hits and the quirky dialogue between Dot and Keller.
I really enjoyed this book. It kept me wanting to stay in the car. The first twist was surprising and interesting but the last one at the end simply was not understood. The multi-character narrative was a bit too much. I just didn't see the point of some of the characters and their narrations such as the brooklyn cop, Connie. Maybe I'm just missing something.
