    "Beginning of a new series?"

    For all of you Alex Cross fans, read this with an open mind. James Patterson has created a brand new story line that still holds excitement, intrigue and a fast pace. "Winged children?" you may say, but give this book serious consideration. I listened to this straight through! This book is followed by Lake House, Patterson's newest publication. If you are looking for a series again, this may be for you.

    "Rosemary's Baby meets E.T."

    If my review heading intrigues you, perhaps this quirky tale will too. The narration is wonderfully done - perfect timbre, pitch and intonation for a story of this sort. This audiobook kept the whole family engaged for a seven hour road trip!

    "Still Undecided"

    I was introduced to James Patterson when a friend gave me Double Crossed to read. To go from that to this... kind of a stretch. The story was good but I think it was the narration that had me troubled. The music should never have been incorporated into this audio book. Good book, not great audio book. I'd save the credit and just buy the book to read. Probably a better experience.

    "Recommend this Listen!"

    When Patterson's Lake House book was announced, I assumed it had something to do with last year's Beach House. However, when I read the summary of Lake House, I thought, "what a stupid story." I wanted to give it a chance and decided to start at the beginning with this book, "When the Wind Blows." I really, really enjoyed the story. Far-fetched -- yes, but I loved the characters. My only wish was that Audible would have offered the unabridged version. I signed on tonight to purchase and download Lake House, but just read the terrible customer reviews it has received in the last few weeks. I'll probably still go for it just to find out what's next with Max and her friends, but am a little skeptical. Listen to this one though--It's good writing and a good narrator.

    "I Enjoyed the Story"

    Who knew Patterson could do a decent job of Sci-FI? It read well without inordinate amounts of detail. While that may seem choppy, it's just moving the story along. This is the story of BAD doctors trying to do good. Oh look! A sequel...

    "Short Story"

    I found the book to be too short but the narration was good. There is no suspense in my opinion and so the story trails on very quickly.

    This story is a real imaginitive one! It was so nice to learn there was a prequel to the Lake House. What a great story!


    What other book might you compare When the Wind Blows to and why?

    When the Wind Blows is a prequel to The Lake House. Excellent Read.

    "Not second in series"
    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was under the impression that this was the second book following the book The Lake House. But it wasn't more like a synopsis of the first. I would love a second part of the Lake house. Loved the bird children.

    I really liked this one. A little different but it kept my interest. I did not want it to end.
