    Patterson fan

    I love James Patterson books. He is good and I love how he gets you from the start. I miss his Alex Cross character but I am learning to get used to his other books. This is a good book and I did finish it in a day.

    This is an interesting book. The chapters are so short that someone with ADHD would have no problem sitting down and reading it. They sort of threw me off but you get used to it. The writing and characters were somewhat interesting. Just a nice, fluffy, easy read.

    Veramente un ottimo thriller!
    Non mancano numerosi colpi di scena, mai troppo scontati, e spesso totalmente imprevisti.
    Veramente una lettura divertente piu' che formativa, e nello scopo di intrattenere colpisce in pieno. L'immediatezza degli eventi lascia ben perdonare una non troppo approfondita caratterizzazione dei personaggi, diciamo tuttavia che nel libro c'e' quanto basta per essere perfettamente godibile.
    La mia impressione finito di leggere il libro e' stata quella che si prova dopo aver visto un bel film, ottima cosa se volevate solo passare qualche ora per intrattenervi, senza ritrovarvi con troppi problemi/spunti riflessivi.

    Consigliato a tutti

    I couldn't wait to get to the end of this book. It took no time to read, but what time I did spend, it was pure entertainment. What a ride from beginning to end. Although, I did figure some stuff out early on, I was really intrigued by all of the plot twists and turns. It was really a fantastic book (more like a beach read) that I think if you need some entertainment, you should definitely check out.
