If there has ever been a more unecessary book written in English, well I don't know what it is. I don't understand how people read Patterson at all. Alex Cross is boring. He's a boring, unlikely, barely likeable character. Also, his Porsche would get stolen every day in the neighbourhood he unrealistically choses to live in. The writing is trite and pedestrian with an average of 3.2 ridiculous cliches every two pages. Tossing one plucky woman into a story does not excuse the endless, graphic violence, degradation and horrific ravings of brutal misogynists. That business with the snake was certainly the worst of Patterson's seeming mission to the women in his books until, I don't even know what the goal could possibly be. James Patterson is the small pox of modern writing and he's going kill us or leave us so scarred by the trial we'll never be the same again.
