  "One book we were glad to finish and move on"by fastreader (see profile) 08/01/11

An uninspiring writing style, some characters difficult to get emotionally invested in, and a plot that makes for limited discussion.

 
  "Book was Good"by mblake (see profile) 03/10/10

Definitely not your typical book club book but, it was a quick read and moved along. Not sure I believe some of the things that happened in the story.

 
  "A Book full of twists and turns--the surprises never stop!"by ezzie36330 (see profile) 05/26/09

 
  "The Quickie"by knock3xs (see profile) 02/15/09

I think it was a good read but not one of James Patterson's better books.

 
  "Fast read, great and entertaining"by cecile18 (see profile) 12/09/08

 
  "Very quick read."by teatime (see profile) 07/18/08

More of a beach read than for club discussion. Patterson was a recommendation. I think I'll try one of his series next. This one was over too quick.

 
  "Shallow and unbelievable story line..."by jaseifert (see profile) 01/13/08

This is definitely NOT a Patterson! The entire story is so unbelievable it is difficult to finish the book. Don't bother for pleasure or book club; very disappointing.

 
  "Average read, not great for discussion"by stefanieapplegate1 (see profile) 11/13/07

I thought the book was predictable and not realistic. It was a quick read. I don't recommend it.

 
  "easy read!"by melissa618 (see profile) 11/11/07

This was an easy read. Everytime I though that I figured out what would happen, I was surprised by another twist in the story. The characters were a little unrealistic and I do not belive people would... (read more)

 
  "On a scale of one to ten I would rate this book a six."by kprofancik (see profile) 09/26/07

This book was o.k. I think it would make a good beach read. I was not impressed. I did like the ending of the book.
