Alex Cross - Book 1
Couldn't get into it
I've always enjoyed the Alex Cross novels and thought this a good story. What is it with these authors that can only describe using the f word? I can think of several very successful ones that never have it appear in their writings. It is off putting to say the least.
This is the first book of the Alex Cross series. It was my second of Patterson's books. Great book full of suspense. Highly recommend.
My first James Patterson, and the beginning of one of his bestselling series....but I don't really get all the hype. I read it fast enough, and it's a page turner, but I find the characters mostly flat and bordering on stereotypical. The villain is the most interesting, but the interactions between the two "leads" left me with a lot of eye rolling. Good for a quick read and non-stop pacing, but if you're looking for depth or character development this just didn't cut the mustard for me. And some of the dialogue was just very over-the-top cheesy.
Patterson is a great writer and Alex Cross is a great character. Together, they make a great couple. The twists and turns of this book kept me guessing at every step. Very well written and executed. If you are looking for an entertaining summer novel, this is a great place to start. I give it an A.
Good book, entertaining, lots of unexpected twists in the plot
I love James Patterson! His books are so easy to read and they go by quickly with the short chapters...they are easy to follow and intrigueing.
I suppose I had to get around to reading a Patterson/Alex Cross mystery sooner or later. So, I started at the beginning. The story was okay and a bit captivating, but the language was filthy, and I had a few other issues with it. It took some interesting turns along the way as all good mysteries must. So, this was my first and last Patterson.
