This was the first prey book I read and it impressed me so as to that I wanted to read more of them. now that I have read sudden prey and have started eyes of prey I realize that it is not his best works. But I encourage you to not give up on sandford if this is the only book you've read. They only get better.

I am a huge fan of Sandford and the prey series but this book was a disaster from page 1 until the end. I could not believe the same guy had written the previous novels. I never look at reviews before I buy a book, if its someone I read normally I am pretty amped to get started but boy, I sure wish I would have read here first. If you buy this book you will be wasting money -- save it for a gallon or two of gas. I have no idea what happened in this book but its the most boring thing I have read in many many years. He changed his whole writing style it seems for this book and boy did it show. Not only was I bored but Lucas himself is getting bored, the poor guy. I hope that the next book will be like the others - great. I give it a two because it had a pretty cover but once you open the cover a two stretching it. Avoid it unless you an insomniac who has run out of medication.

    What a dissapointment!

    What a dissapointment! When I bought the book I could hardly wait to read it and then... God! I kept turning the pages hoping it would get better but no way. But I haven't lost faith in Sanford...It's just his worst outing.

    What a tedious read this was

    If it were not for the $7.99 I had invested in this book i would never have finished it. I could only read a few pages at a time and had to put it down due to boredom. It certainly was not a page turner nor something i looked foreward to diving into at night after work.It was tedious and far fetched. By the end i really did not care on little bit 'who done it'!!!

    Are you sure John Sanford wrote this novel?

    Hard to believe this is one of Sanford's Prey novels. Not near as good as any of the others. I was very disappointed. Hopefully, a new prey fan will not read this first, as he/she probably would not read another.

    What happened?

    I have enjoyed all of John Sandford's previous Lucas Davenport novels but as I read 'Easy Prey,' I repeatedly wondered, 'Did John Sandford really write this? What happened to the superb skills that kept a reader on edge through an entire mystery?' My main disappointment was that Sandford lost touch with the Davenport character that had remained consistent from novel to novel in previous 'Prey' books.

    Disappointing

    I have read and enjoyed all of the Prey books but this one was very disappointing. I kept having to go back and recap the characters to figure out what was going on. Wouldn't recommend this one.

    Never have been so disappointed in a book

    I was excited to read the latest in this series, having read all the previous Prey books. Yet when I sat down to read this book... well, the characters, the scenes and the entire storyline are boring. Add to that, the need by the author to toss in a bit of this, a dash of that, a pinch of whatever... to create a mish-mesh that is not befitting of a talented writer. I love Lucas!!!! Keep him and the series realistic, write about what you KNOW - not whatever is hot at the moment. By the time I was a third of the way through, I wanted to start another book. Previously, Prey books have always excited me and I've felt as if the author was weaving a story that challenged me. This particular book was a total waste. I'd rather wait longer between books than have a tossed bag of meaningless characters, scenarios and words presented to me as a part of a fantastic series.
