This book had a pretty decent plot. It was typical Alex Cross. However, the audio was so bad that I could not listen to it for more than about 30 minutes at a time. I will not download anymore books unless they are available in format 3 or higher. It was a waste of a credit!
Almost didn't purchase this book because all the previous reviews talked about the bad audio quality of the book, and how hard it was to hear it. I like to read series in order so I purchased Cat and Mouse anyway. I am glad I did...
Either this is a new issue or they have resolved the audio issues, because I had no trouble hearing the book. And I want to note that I have hearing issues that can make it difficult to understand some things depending on the circumstances. I would recommend this book. By the way, I downloaded format 4.
The story kept me interested, even though I'm not a fan of abridged versions. Reading the series in order was important to me and I'm happy I went ahead and bought the book.
The story was great, what I could understand that is!!! I should have paid more attention to the other reviews listed here. SOUND QUALITY IS VERY BAD, DO NOT BUY THIS VERSION.
the story was great and very exciting at the end, but it was hard to listen to because it had poor sound quality. when the music kicked in it sounded horrible and was hard to hear the reader. good listen, just not a good listen for maybe a first time listener.
First, I hate abridged books, and I overlooked that significant word when I purchased. It jumps from action scene to action scene without letting any feelings for the characters develop or any sense of curiosity to build. Second, the sound effects were terribly annoying in this book. I didn't have any audio difficulties that other readers mentioned, but the background music and whispering voices signifying thoughts were someone's very bad idea. The fact that the book was abridged probably added to that nuisance factor, as the sound effects in audio books typically accompany the most dramatic scenes, which of course are the only ones to be found in an abridged version. I would have given zero stars for performance had I had the option, and for the story I would have given a question mark. Story development just isn't adequate in abridged books.
James Patterson - Alex Cross series is great. Excellent reader.
Alex coming out of the near coma in the hospital
Is Alex Cross the Cat or the Mouse?
I love this series but this one has been my least favorite. Enjoyable but not like the others. It did not need the explicit sex to make the story. I did not care for the reader who played Alex Cross. Sounded more Barry White ish. don't know if it was his voice or the way he portrayed Alex. Story was just ok.
Love audiobooks. Mystery and suspense novels are the ones I enjoy the most.
You had to really think about who was the cat and who was the mouse in this exciting novel. Really enjoy the way the narrators acted the main characters. Made the book all-the-more interesting. Keep up the good work audiobook.
