Double Crossed.. Double Good

'Never sure whether it's Patterson or the reading but Alex Cross is my hero. Along with him you worry about a crime or host of crimes, raising a family, having a love life after the terrible loss of his beloved wife and last but not least Nana Momma. Maybe it's because of the thrilling life or just the mundane those of us with families learn to love, but no matter what it is Alex Cross is the "man" . Relax and let Alex Cross take over; you wont be sorry.

Weak Plot

Without a doubt this was the worst narrated book I have lisented to. One narrator would do an African American dialect and the other would try the most terrible british cockney accent I have ever heard. With the attempts at black sounding dialect it sounded almost racist. It reminded me of Prissy in Gone With The Wind! Patterson spent several chapters detailing the medical problems of Cross's grandmother. This brought nothing to the story and was as if he needed extra pages to fill the book. The plot was very weak and within a couple of chapters you know who the killer is.
This was a major disappointment after all the hype this book received when it was released. Someone should tell the narrators that everyone in Washington DC does not have a black southern accent! I would not recommend this book because of the narration.
