    "Entertaining Listen"

    I usually am not a fan of unabridged versions of books, but this one is an exception. I felt like I was listening to a radio show production of the book. it entertained me on my commute. Good story, a suspensful who dunnit.

    "BLAIR READ MORE TO ME!"
    Where does Jack and Jill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    To be fair, I have only listened to two books so far. This is second by only a half of a star. I am picking winners.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It could have been longer. The high school serial killer character could have been better developed. What was his background?


    What does Blair Underwood and John Rubinstein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They both read the story like they were there. I was there. The two of them were excellent. I was watching the movie in my head.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had didn't laugh or cry, but I did gasp a couple of times. Since I listen at work, my coworkers were a little concerned.


    Any additional comments?

    Blair Underwood and John Rubinstein are great!

    Story
    "Nice twists"
    What did you love best about Jack and Jill?

    Attention to detail is always a good thing and the human interest helps bond to the character, but the many unexpected twists in the storyline keeps you going from daydreaming about the presented facts to intense listening for new clues. The ending is not what I expected which helps me rate this book higher than many.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    With many crime novels, the ending becomes clear but the problem of resolution is unclear. With this book, just when the ending seems clear, there is a major twist that disrupts all preconceived notions. This technique engages the listener more, to the point you hang on every word.

    "Love the Alex Cross series"
    Any additional comments?

    James Patterson is one of my favorite authors. His stories always grab you from the first page and you don't want to put it down until you're finished; and then you can't wait to read the next one. I don't get a chance to read as often as I like, so being able to listen to the Alex Cross series on audible is a perfect way for me to catch up. This series in particular is my favorite. At the end of each book you want more; it's like an addiction. Jack and Jill is just as engrossing as Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls. James Patterson and Alex Cross never disappoints.

    "TOO much missing!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Too much of the story is missing. Even though I went back and tried to follow the story line, it was too confusing to enjoy the listen.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure but it WILL NOT be abridged.

    Jack & Jill (Alex Cross #3)



    There isn't much I can say about the book or the author. I love the Alex Cross series. I was hooked with "A Long Came a Spider," and "Kiss the Girls."

    Jack and Jill is a fast pace, riveting, suspense/thriller. This is a novel I would love to watch on the big screen!

    James Patterson is an Master at character development, which is such an essential element in the craft of writing. Plot development received excellent support from its chapter development and suspenseful sub-plotting.

    Jack and Jill is an assassination team that terrorize the DC area, and puts Capital Hill on high alert. they are highly skilled, highly effective, and Alex is placed right in the middle of their carnage and rampage to execute the President of the United States.

    So go find your favorite chair, a pot of coffee, or coco, and whatever else you need to be comfortable, while James takes you on this emotional roller-coaster with Alex Cross to uncover the reason why these ghost has come out to kill in this 5 star read.

    Really enjoyed the story line. The performance was ok but really needed something more. Can't wait for the next one in the series.

    "Shame on James Patterson"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Jack and Jill to be better than the print version?

    No


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jack and Jill?

    I hated that I didn't get the full story


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have definitely listened to it in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I would suggest anyone wanting to read a James Patterson book to buy it or check it out of the library, he is notorious for never having unabridged audio books available. I will never waste my money on another of his audio books.

    "Tring to be a thriller"

    The story lacks credibility. The subplots don't come together into a story. Alex Cross seems to be to much a super hero. The idea has potential but didn't deliver. I got so bored with it I didn't even finish it.
