Publisher's Summary

Kristin Burns is making her way in New York City. Her photos are being considered at a major Manhattan gallery, she works by day with two wonderful children, and the man of her dreams is almost hers for keeps. But just as everything she's ever wanted is finally within reach, her life changes forever with one murderous nightmare.

Kristin wakes up every morning from the same chilling, unforgettable dream. And suddenly, it's visiting her during the day too. As her life turns stranger by the minute, Kristin is haunted and terrified. Is it all in her head? Or is the nightmare becoming her life? Kristin searches desperately for what's real through the lens of her camera, only knowing two things for sure: that no place is safe and the fate of everyone she loves lies in her hands.

    "Should have been warned"

    I've loved all of James Patterson's books, until now. Even the ones that have been co-authored with others were better than this one. I hope Patterson reconsiders if he plans another one with this author.

    "Disappointing"

    I was VERY disappointed in this book. I love all of Patterson's books and have also enjoyed books he co-authored, but not this one. It was a struggle to finish. Another Patterson fan tried it and stopped listening after the 1st CD due to lack of interest. Don't waste your money or time on it.

    "Worse Book EVER"

    I read about four books a month and this is by far the WORSE book I have ever read. Even though I like the character Kristen the whole concept of this book was horrible.

    "Warned Indeed...."

    While I am an avid James Patterson fan, this book left me feeling like I was listening to a Dean Koontz book. Don't misunderstand me, I really like Koontz. If you listen and read to certain writers, you come to expect a certain style from each one. While it was a suspenseful listen, I have a hard time associating Patterson with the mystical relm. It's worth a listen, but I hope that Patterson goes back to his usually style of writing.

    "You've been warned!!!"

    There must have been some mix-up somewhere and Patterson's name was inadvertently added as an author. My disappointment is so great that I don't know exactly how to express just how dull, blah, lackluster, uninspiring, drab, humdrum and boring this book was. I was not able to force myself to finish. I feel cheated and will certainly think twice -- no three or four times-- before buying anymore of James Patterson's new books. (His books before this one have been great). Anyway, "You've Been Warned", "Don't Waste Your Time".

    "Insulted-my-intelligence!"

    I have traditionally been a fan of the Alex Cross series and have eagerly awaited every James Patterson book written. "You've Been Warned" was a huge disappointment. I thought I was reading romance novel trash and almost discarded the book after the "Maytag scene". It was only my previous satisfaction with Patterson's novels that kept me going, in hopes the "end would justify the means". Not so. This book was confusing and ridiculous until the last page. The next Patterson novel will be something I check out of the local library, since I don't want to invest any real dollars toward another potential piece of trash. If anyone reading this is new to James Patterson, stick to the delightful Alex Cross novels and avoid his latest co-authorships.

    "Not His Best Work"

    I am a huge fan of James Patterson, I have read almost everything he has written but I must say I was quite disappointed in this one. Kristen Burns was the main character in this book and I found her to be a tad daft. All thru the book she is either talking to the reader (little to no interaction with others)or we are reading her thoughts. It held my interst for a while but then I just couldn't wait to finish........(I always finish a book once I start it) As for the ending, sorry to say, it was giant let down. Now give me another book like the Quickie; that one I couldn't put down........it was one of James' best!!!

    Disappointed

    "WORST BOOK EVER"
    What would have made You've Been Warned better?

    not writing it....


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson and Howard Roughan again?

    I have read EVERY book that James Patterson has written or co-written and this is the worst ever. Do not waste your time reading it. If this is your first James Patterson book, don't judge him by this book alone.


    What does Ilyana Kadushin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Well done...


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from You've Been Warned?

    All of them...


    Any additional comments?

    I kept hoping this book would get better or find a different path. It was just not very good.

    "Strange Story"

    This was a hard book for me to listen to and follow. I always felt like I was missing something. I still felt that way when I finished it. Would I recommend the book? No.
