I enjoyed it, but it's somewhat of a guilty pleasure at this point. It's certainly not a great story or great storytelling for that matter;

The whole business about the white house coverup and all that, I really had a hard time buying to be honest. It seems pretty far over-the-top to me. I actually like the ending (including the epilogue) but it still seemed like there were a lot of loose ends and the story just came to an abrupt end (a problem with several of Patterson's books). Mainly though I had a problem with the story and the Alex Cross character. Every bit of evidence that Alex Cross got, was handed to him by somebody else. He basically didn't do anything in this story other than serve as kind of a "message boy". I was left wondering why the Alex Cross character really even mattered in this story. It probably would have been a much better story had it been told from the standpoint of any number of the other characters, and Alex Cross were treated like the "bit part" that it really was.

As far as the audiobook goes, it was very well read and produced. The main reader was excellent, and they had some other voices at key moments which greatly added to the experience.

I am addicted to this series. When I think that a series can't possibly get any better or more "twisted," it absolutely does. I'm an avid reader of various genres, but the Alex Cross novels are my favorite. Thank you, Mr. Patterson for sharing your talent, skill, and literary passion.

I give this book a one-star rating only because it's not possible to give it a no-star rating.

I've read amost all of Patterson's books; this will be the last. This book's only distinction was in the grisly nature of the crime; the plot was thin, badly-developed, ended as though he ran out of typing paper, and showed the writing style of a rank amateur.

WIthin the first 30 pages I found myself thinking that there was no proper development in the book; even though I already knew Cross' relationship with his grandmother, the book fell flat on making me feel it. Not only that, but I got the impression that Patterson threw this weak story into a word-processor, spliced in a few family scenes, and collected his fat paycheck. It's a shame that people will buy a book like this without reading a review--that's what I did. Had I known, I would avoided this, relegating it to the pile where "The Lost Symbol" is festering at this very minute.

So the plot cruises along, thinly populated with character development (and that's being generous)--and all of a sudden, the entire case is busted wide open in a blink of an eye. Stupid ending to a terrible book.

A bad book like this not only leaves me unsatisfied, but angry that I wasted time getting to what I hoped would be a logical and satisfactory conclusion. Instead, the book ended more abruptly than a car crash. To add insult to injury, they padded the book's puny size by using paper the thickness of tank armor and adding a teaser for yet another crummy book. The difference this time is that not only will I never buy another Patterson book, but will discourage others from doing so as well.

Patterson needs to send me my money back.

This is a story not to be believed. It starts with a girl running through the woods who is a prostitute. An Englishman and his wife and girlfriend are involved & rolling in money because of blackmail & prostitution. And, the secret service along with the FBI know there is something SINISTER going on, but not quite sure what. And, what does the president know about the situation? JAMES Patterson can certainly spin a great story!

Who is this mysterious man? Could he be a powerful figure? CIA, FBI, Secret Service??? The closer Alex gets to an answer more and more people either disappear or wind up dead.

I, Alex Cross by James Patterson started of with one hell of a start.. one that makes your mouth drop in shock. As always James Patterson delivers another fast-paced read that has you on the edge of your seat, trying to figure out who the bad guy is. I really enjoyed this novel. A very good read!

I Alex Cross was a little slow in the beginning of the story. The story moved along and picked up a few chapters into the story. The story is about a huge cover-up regarding sex crimes murders that occur at a high end private club. Some of the patrons have ties to the White House and major players in government and major business firms. Alex is brought into the investigation when his niece Carolina Cross is one of the victims. Alex has to identify her remains.. His niece's body is found chopped up in a plastic bag in the back of a car driven my a known Mod family member. Nana Mamma has health issues that dominate Alex's thinking, along with solving the latest mystery. A good story..
I've read many of the Cross books. Alex Cross is a psychologist working for the Washington DC police. He's great at this job and brings in the bad guy. The story line also shares his family and a perk at his love life. Good job Alex!
