    "a fresh story from Patterson"
    Would you listen to Mistress again? Why?

    Loved the reader. He was amazing.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin T. Collins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any other books performed by him, but i just purchased another book by an author i do not know to listen to him again.

    "Torture"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    In my opinion I could not recommend this book to anyone.


    What was most disappointing about James Patterson and David Ellis ’s story?

    The book is long and slow moving. Narration is whiny and annoying. Too many references to the Presidents (over and over), movie characters and other non relevant topics. Waterboarding at Gitmo would be less painful.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Awful narration. What’s with the sound effects, even if I could put up with the squeaking door but police sirens, car horns, and squealing brakes? I listen to audiobooks while driving. Is anyone thinking?


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration and hope that it would end. If I had another book I would have never finished it.

    "I actually enjoyed this book...."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mistress to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version and listened to the audio version only. I thought that the performance was really good and kept my interest.


    What about Kevin T. Collins’s performance did you like?

    I thought that Kevin T. Colllin's did an excellent job in performing the character's viewpoint. He was very funny and kept the book moving at a lively pace. He was able to pull off the rambling thought of the book's main character very well.


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

    I found myself laughing several times throughout the performance by the crazy, rambling thought's of the main character at the most inopportune moments.


    Any additional comments?

    The book will definitely not win any awards for writing but I enjoyed the fast paced style and story.

    "What the ????"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is by far the worse Patterson book I've listened to....or tried to listen to. The character is so all over the place that it takes you a second or so to remember what he's originally talking about. I'm forcing myself to finish only to see if there's some redeeming quality in the book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson and David Ellis again?

    Maybe, if this character isn't a part of the story.


    What aspect of Kevin T. Collins’s performance would you have changed?

    A little to monotone for me. Not bad given the character he had to portray but not good either.


    What character would you cut from Mistress?

    All of them!


    Any additional comments?

    I wish Mr. Patterson would write on his own again and not collaborate with other authors.
