Author took all the good ideas about adventure and threw into a "story stew". Problem is, it didn't work
Original. I listened waiting to find out what the mystery was. I usually only write a review if a book is a 5 to encourage a listener to order, or a disaster to give a warning. This is interesting a low 4
I hated this book. I tried to stay with it hoping as it went along it would get better. But, alas it didn't. I read the reviews and some gave a 5 star so I thought there might be something there, but no, just drivel. I like a great variety of books depending on my mood; science fiction, thrillers, funny, some bios.....For example I loved The Help, the early James Patterson books, Grisham, Baldacci, but I have no mood in me to like this stuff. I have never written a bad review but this. Sorry, to all who loved it I know everyone is different and my opinion doesn't out weigh yours.
Next, I have the last Corbin book to give a negative on
I have found a new favorite author. Unfortunately, I have to wait more. A great beach book. As good as Patterson used to be.
What is James Patterson thinking?...Is he even reading what this co-author wrote.....Drivel, is a word that comes to mind! I have always been a big fan of Patterson's entertaining, fast paced novels, now I will be more careful. Why do some top authors seem to sell out and release inferior work after the first three or four hits?
I started listening and was expecting something totally different. Once I adjusted I became totally enthralled. Lionel is a fabulous writer with so much insight and has the gift to portray deep feelings and subjects. This book has a shattering ending, so isn't for everyone. If anyone has a "different" child that can't seem to love and attach deeply, I don't know if this will be a good listen for you or too painful.
I loved Lionel's book "We have to talk about Kevin" it was amazing. This book wasn't even in same league. What Happened?
Good. I liked the characters, maybe a bit too long at end, but you will still want to finish
A wonderful and refreshing book. The pace was perfect and I felt I was a part of it and didn't want it to end. This is rare for me. A gift of a book
I didn't think I would like this book, but bought it because of the reviews. I did love it. Some people thought it was sad, but I didn't get that feeling. It was about love and loyalty, with a twist in the plot. Give it a try. This is my first review and I wrote it because I always read the reviews of others.
