JAMES PATTERSON DELIVERS, ONCE AGAIN

THIS IS ONE OF THOSE BOOKS YOU BETTER MAKE TIME FOR BECAUSE ONCE YOU START IT YOU WILL NOT WANT TO PUT IT DOWN. I TOTALLY ENJOYED THE STORYLINE, THE CHARACTERS, THE BEGINNING, THE MIDDLE AND THE VERY SATISFYING ENDING.

Since all of these reviews except one are without reading the book first, it's my turn. James Patterson went from a great author to a miserable one with this co-author army that pumps out 10 150 page books (- the blank spaces) a year that you can read in 2-3 hours. Even Cross Country was terrible, the worst Alex Cross book yet. The Sail? Please - what a Joke. What's next, JP with Donald Duck as that's what we have been getting lately. He'll still make his millions on people who thrive on these mindless reads. Want a real mystery novel? Try Baldacci, Connelley, Deaver and Daniel Kalla for medical mysteries. They will never disappoint you.

    Run for Your Life or should have been titled "My kids with the flu"

    I'm an avid Patterson fan - so what happened to this book???? One of the worst I have ever read of his. I'm not sure if I shouldn't buy another Patterson book with Michael Ledwidge on the cover or not. Talk about boring - how you could take a plot that had potential and totally bore the reader to death with details that don't even matter or have anything to do with the book! Who cares if the main character's character has 10 kids - that is unbelievable enough - but how time and detail went into his kids throwing up, him stepping in, smells, etc. - I mean who cares??? Patterson used to be goog - BUT I'm wondering if he just signs his name on to the book cover and never reads it???? So, bottom line, for the cost of hardbacks - at this point - I will make sure I don't ever pick up a book with Patterson/Ledwidge combination again. He used to be the best - maybe he's just too tired to write stories anymore or even care. This would be at best, a bargain store buy, so sorry I waited and bought it as soon as it came out at full price. Very discouraging to say the least!!!

    Couldn't get through it.

    I am a HUGE fan of James Patterson. While I do very much like the character Michael Bennett, this book was just boring. The villain couldn't be more uninteresting. It's the only James Patterson book I've put down in the middle of reading. He has so many other greats..this one just didn't do it for me. Step on a Crack was far better.

    Life time fan of James Patterson

    I like the Michael Bennett series as much as all the others. JP delivers and easy read with suspense. I always look forward to the next release.

    Don't bother.

    Read Patterson's The Beach House if you want to see what he's capable of.
