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.

Nice

It's been very nice hearing James Patterson's first ever book. I enjoyed it very much. I practically listened to it all in one sitting! I had to pause it here and there so I can't say I listened to it all in one sitting! But it was good!

Exceptional

I really started the book thinking I'm not going to like this because it seemed to start off slow but as I continued to listen I really got into the Thomas character and enjoyed listening to the book.

Lose the resonator guitar!

What do you think your next listen will be?

Probably an 18th-century classic..just to get all the F-bombs and twangy guitar out of my brain.

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

The story was riveting at times. But the 'musical' inserts coupled with the not-very-believable southern accent of the narrator tempted me to abandon listening several times. My reaction overall was annoyance. However, I'd paid for it and this was my first James Patterson book so I felt I should listen to the end. Sigh.....

Any additional comments?

Perhaps I will try a later James Patterson offering another time. Do not wish to be close minded about an author. When listening to audiobooks I want a good reader and a good story and no sound effects or music. But that's just me.

unfulfilled

I'm a huge James Patterson fan but I'm truly struggling to get into this storyline.
