    "Not his best"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No and yes, if my friend is a James Patterson fan like myself then yes I would but if he or she hasn't read a book by him before then no. Do not buy. Not his best.


    What was most disappointing about James Patterson’s story?

    The story had too much back and forth got kinda confusing


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amerjit Deu and Raj Ghatak ?

    Not sure


    Could you see Private India being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    NOOOOOO


    Any additional comments?

    The plot was not bad but the back and forth is confusing. The narrator wasn't good at all. If there is another one I hope he uses another narrator and co author.

    "Boring"

    I was expecting a story like the other Private series. The narrator was hard to follow and found it quite difficult to get into, finally gave up. Very disappointed!!!

    Story
    "A stinker"
    Would you try another book from James Patterson and/or Amerjit Deu and Raj Ghatak ?

    From James Patterson, yes. I have read every Patterson book.


    What could James Patterson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It was a very disjointed and confusing book. The narrator (who was authentic) added to the confusion.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amerjit Deu and Raj Ghatak ?

    Not sure. They were authentic, however, it is the common stressor that one has when they call customer service in India and cannot understand the person.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Private India?

    I don't know, I was confused through the entire book even when I continually played the book back.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the Private series, but this one was bad. Further, Jack Morgan does not speak with an accident which made the book unbelievable.

    Story
    "Private India"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Sad to say it was all about the delivery - the narration....


    What other book might you compare Private India to, and why?

    It's a typical James Patterson book - and I love JP's books, pretty much all of the Adult ones. Only read/listened to the Confession series of YA.


    What didn’t you like about Amerjit Deu and Raj Ghatak ’s performance?

    It was quite difficult to understand who was which character and the American Jack definitely didn't sound American!


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

    I was disappointed to be honest, first time with an Audio book


    Any additional comments?

    Story is good, it's just the guys reading it - I am sorry to say.
