    Tell us about yourself! I am a 69 yr old female. I love books but due to vision limits I now actually don't read much unless I can get large print. I enjoy books that give me a good story line and move forward at a good pace.

    Story
    "Family Time is Fleeting"

    Alex Cross has a lot on his plate in this latest outing. You will find him dealing with a mad man, then another re-occurring character who has some very nasty plans with the people of Washington DC.

    What to say? I really enjoyed this book. Since the second book is already out as I write this, be aware this is a 'to be continued' storyline.

    Enjoy it!

    Youngsters may like it more than I did. Just not that challenging, but it was entertaining though.

    Yeah, it was OK. Entertaining enough, somewhat predictable though.

    The narration was great, as usual in all ways.

    It sparks family emotions, mainly.

    "Great, but nothing unexpected happened"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Merry Christmas, Alex Cross to be better than the print version?

    Don't have time for print version, so I don't know


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

    No, not really. There was nothing unexpected in this one. Would like to see something totally outside the box.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Didn't have a favorite.
