"James Patterson does everything but stick our finger in a light socket to give us a buzz." (The New York Times)
"Cross is one of the great creations of thriller fiction." (Dallas Morning News)
The plot itself is decent enough but when the reader tried to stress excitement or fast-action, he only read quicker and did not change the pitch of his voice. I was disappointed. If you really want it, it is probably worth the money but you need to be sure to use your imagination to make up for the lack of the reader's.
Interesting storyline with enough convolutions, but trite dialog, full of well-worn cliches. And is it true that every cop cannot complete a sentence without the F word as portrayed in "Spider"?
This book absolutely kept me intrigued until the end...much better than the movie!! Im a big Patricia Cornwell fan and Ive already listened to or read all of the Kay Scarpetta series so I've been looking for a new audiobook series and it looks like Ive found it!! You wont be disappointed!!
The plot was good and the characters were OK. Plenty of twists and turns. I was disappointed that profanity was peppered through the book and it seemed like sex was thrown in more often than it needed to be. It didn't really advance the story.
This is the second time I've read this book, or listened to it I should say. But it was just as good the second time as it was the first. I would recommend it to anyone along with any of James Patterson stories.
A few stories wrapped into one. Just when you think it's going to end another one pops up and they all tie together. Good, quick, easy read.
Narrator sounded like he had a cold. Voice too monotone for me. Also, weird music would pipe in at odd times. Wasn't at the end of a section but just random chapters. Very distracting. Just watched this movie and it did not follow the book much at all.
Decent Plot Twists
It was okay. I'd seen the movie long ago but couldn't remember exactly how it ended.
Deep but Nasally
I wanted to listen to this since I was considering listening to more of the Alex Cross series. Perhaps because of seeing the movie first (and hearing Morgan Freeman's voice as AC), I was a little disappointed, overall.
Loved it, enjoyed it I really enjoyed the plots and I enjoyed reading James Patterson novels. I was always skeptical but now I know that is a very good master of suspense.
