    "Big Disappointment"
    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Cross is Patterson's core character and therefore I expect the best from Patterson when a Cross book is written. This one fell far from the mark. The dual story lines, while performed well, especially well by Zach Grenier of The Good Wife fame, lacked any depth. Although the idea of kidnapping the President's children was an interesting one, the whole Saudi terrorist plot was tired and to date, over written by many authors. As we are left wondering what happened to Hallah I also wonder if this was the first of two books that should have been one. The book's title is also a mystery as there was absolutely no attempt to kill Alex Cross. Try again Mr. Patterson, spend more time on Alex Cross and less time on the other 15 books you're publishing this year.

    "Andre great, story line predictable."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes because Alex, Nana Mama, and Ali are old friends.


    Would you recommend Kill Alex Cross to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes but conditionally.


    Which character – as performed by Andre Braugher and Zach Grenier – was your favorite?

    Alex of course.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    James Patterson is simply churning them out. Character development was weak but Andre Braugher is such a great performer and Alex is so familiar I had to listen.

    "Disapointed"

    I like Alex Cross stories, but this one seem to be put together very fast - like he need to get one done by a certain date. If this is your first Alex Cross, don't use this as your benchmark. There are many good ones.

    "James Patterson let Alex Cross down"
    What would have made Kill Alex Cross better?

    This book had the rhythm of an abridged book - the characters did not seem well developed. This is not James Patterson's best. Why is the title Kill Alex Cross? Hmmmmm


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I thought that the cadence of the reader was wrong. In the prior books there seemed to be no rush to get to the end of the book - this reader seemed to rush through the book.

    Would you listen to Kill Alex Cross again? Why?

    I had read all of the Alex Cross series to date. James Patterson writes suspenseful thrillers with touching love stories and family stories intertwined. He is magnificent!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nana Mama is always my favorite character. Her love of family and her spunk reminds me of what families should be!

    "I likes it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend it. I read the unfavorable reviews...after I "read" it but I was surprised. My 1st. Patterson "read" &...I Liked it.


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

    Not on the edge of my seat but close.


    What does Andre Braugher and Zach Grenier bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Of course an audio infliction brings the story alve.


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

    Mayb 2 or 3.
