Check it out!

This is a book by Andrew Gross who often writes with James Patterson! I did enjoy this book very much --- so did my husband! What a mystery! Kept me guessing until the end of the book! We both read the book within 3 days! Would read a book by Andrew Gross again!

Sadly Andrew Gross has fallen short in this book. He has moved away from his promising series for the past two books, and the last one was decent. The plot is thin and unbelieable (more like James Patterson and his book mill) in this day and age where police cars are equipted with audio and video most of the basic plot would not have happened. Too bad it took more than 15 Seconds to read I want my time back.

    When Andrew Gross writes for himself, and not James Patterson, I

    When Andrew Gross writes for himself, and not James Patterson, I think he has done some stellar work. Don't Look Twice was a five star novel. So I am extremely disappointed that 15 Seconds looks more like a James Patterson novel, and by that I mean, a very light read with a rather silly premise. When you see multiple exclamation points, and then sentences in italics with exclamation points, you know that the author is trying to hype things up. 15 Seconds is such a ludicrous story, tugging at heart strings to make you think there is something there to care about. I can only hope that the author wakes up and gives his readers what they expect from him. Try harder next time, Andrew!

    Disappointed

    The premise is promising but the story and the characters fall extremely short. The main character is neither likable nor believable. The dialogue is weak and silly. I wanted to like this book but was sorely disappointed. I would like my money back on this one.

    Written for the YA market?

    Because it's a waste of time for anyone else.
