I didn't read the book description before I listened to this one. I just went on the "I like James Patterson's books.". This one was bizarre from the get-go and just got stranger as things went along. There were bits in the story where you got pulled in, but the story was just too farfetched and I kept thinking this is utter nonsense. and in the end, it just got worse. I hate to not finish a book, but I wish I had stopped long before the end of this one.
great book - totally absorbed all the way through - you have to like the topic but if you do it delivers
It was like literary creation of "The Seventh Sign".
Very riveting. Quite visual.
Leaves me to wonder. Will there be a sequel?
Well-spent, no. But given that I listen to audio books while doing household labor, I don’t feel it is an entire waste of time.
Can’t give a yes or no answer to this one. But no if they were like me. The why would be that there are books much more to my liking. Don’t care for religious focused storylines in general.
I recommend against. But I can’t say why without supplying a spoiler. So few books need a sequel that I hope this one doesn’t get one.
TECHNICAL: Recording and production were invisible which they should be.
PERFORMANCE: Nice voice, generally a solid performance, but some of the emotive scenes were over played, or annoyingly played without it being a supportive element for the story.
STORY: Not really a fan of the mystery-spiritual-horror novel. That said, the authorcraft was adequate; interesting plot twists, but not too many. Rich, but not overly verbose descriptions of characters, situations, and setting.
James Patterson is a masterful story teller and this book was no exception. He weaves the story so well with unexpected twists and turns that holds ones attention. The person who read the book, did so with such technique and flourish that there was never any doubt which character was telling the story or who was speaking each time. What a great book!
This book was predictable and telegraphed from page one. The minor twist at the end is a cheap shot at the sequel that should have been part of this lame story. Also the music was QUITE annoying. Even if you love Patterson like I do - stay away from this one.
I loved this work, like others, I went with the "oooh Patterson", love his stuff, and didn't read the book description. Not as bizarre as the Lake House but definately different. I stayed up way to late and in my car far too long with this one.
I listened to this story just before Christmas, so it was actually timely. However, I was not impressed with the story line. It was a gross departure from James Patterson's other work. Totally implausible and I finished it only out of curiosity...it did not get better, just worse. I hope that I do not waste my time on anything else so strange and farfetched.
