    "Not a favorite!"

    Did not like this Patterson book and I have been a big fan for years! Plot and characters are difficult to follow. Seems more like James Lee Burke novel and not like James Patterson but perhaps that is because of the narrator's accent.

    "The Thomas Berryman Number"

    I agree with all of the other reviews of this book. Was hard to follow. Was on several long trips and kept turning it off to listen to the radio. Harder to follow than any book I have ever had. Don't recomend.

    "Don't Waste Your Credits"

    Don't waste any credits on this book! I had such a hard time following this story, I kept having to start the audiobook over, and rewinding and rewinding! I FINALLY finished it, but it wasn't easy.

    "Thomas Berryman Number"

    James Patterson really laid a stinky egg with this one. It jumps back and forth too much an the plot is really stupid. Not worth a read, especially or those of us who James Patterson fans. Get with it James, don't just publish to publish. Put some thought into it.

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

    This was one of the shortest books I've listened but one of the longest. The story was so convoluted and boring. I'm not even sure I could tell you what it's about. I don't recommend this at all.


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson again?

    I will probably give another try but only because this was his first. Not a good start for him at all.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Will Patton?

    I didn't really dislike the narrator. Just the story itself.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No

    "Story without plot and bad narrator"

    I had intended to read a book by James Patterson for quite a while now. So I got his first book, The Thomas Berryman Number. I have to say I’m not impressed and judging by this book, I can’t understand why he is so popular. Judging by other reviews of this book, this seems to be his weakest book, so I might still give another of his books a chance.

    The Thomas Berryman Number isn’t a long book but it is too long for this non-existent plot. I’ve had a really hard time in getting into the book and the audiobook narrator didn’t help, either. There are some audiobook narrators that manage to really get a book across; Will Patton isn’t among them, at least not for me. Perhaps I’ll try to read the next James Patterson book instead of listening to the audiobook (or I’ll try to find one with another narrator).
