I was a bit cautious to purchase it because I am a die-hard A.C. fan and now adicted to The Women's club. But I really enjoyed a change, as I am sure Mr. Patterson did writting it. Good job!
I started listening the the newer releases and fell in for Mr. Roberts' voice. I did not care for this gentlemen; personal preference. And he mispronounces (says it different tha Tony) Dino's last name. It was good to hear how the two started out not really invovled, he had not earned his money yet, and Dino getting married, etc. It sews things up since I started late in the series. Thanks Stuart!
Had forgotten how incredible this story is. As everyone mentioned, I was the HBO movie and it really touched me. I was an 80’s child and remember the ‘scramble’ that the discovery caused; my mom was freaking out because she enjoyed the 70’s. :o) I was disappointed to learn about the presidents lack of concern. At least all of that has changed. It took several weeks of course. I had to stop and listen to another book for awhile; had to get away from the frank language and the denial.
I read this book when it first came out years ago. I loved it then and really enjoyed the audio version. Can't get enough of Alex!
I really enjoyed the new book. I am glad Craig was such a big part of the book. It was tense that he was so close to Alex all of the time. I did not have an issue with the narrator, like some people. It took a couple of chapters to get used to him. I did have an issue with the ex showing up, out of the blue, and then gone again. Leave little Alex alone; poor kid.
Can't wait for the next one...will it involve Lidnsey in SF? That might be fun.
I will listen to her again. I really liked it. She did well combining the differenent characters from previous 'lives' to bring them all together at a certain place and time. DID NOT see the ending coming at all....which I love in a good mystery! Well done Ms. Jackson.
I just love these two and Tony Roberts must never be replaced as the voices! I still can't get a good visual picture of what Stone looks like, but he seems to get the ladies within a few chapters, so he must be "something". :o)
As most, I am addicted to J.P. I did like this book...there were parts that jumped ahead and was kind of lost. Alex's family always being a target is kind of old and I think should be left out...Janey is going to be messed up for life...maybe he should start a series for her about how she is a police officer because she has been kidnapped so many times and wants revenge on criminals. But, I am still a fan of J.P's. On to find my next Alex or Mike Bennett book!
As usual, the laides are the best! Finally hooking up with Joe for good!
I grew up in the South and I have seen 'wrong doings', but I really was disturbed by what was going on in the book. I had to fast-forward through a few graphic details of hangings. I was disappointed that AC was not the subject, but it was a well written prequal to how the Cross family came to be. Obviously, NanaMamma would have been influenced by the happenings of that time and shows in other books why she is so family orientated.
It was a nice change, but really would like a great AC book like Wolf! Mr. Patterson, we need a new movie, and it can't be made with out Morgan Freeman!
