Typical Patterson novel: engaging and inventive plot, and fast-paced. My only gripe about this book (as compared to, say, the Alex Cross series) is that the characters all seemed very one-dimensional. Even the narrator was a pretty flat character, th ...more

Ah, I think I'm only giving this book 4 stars because I can't stand waiting for the conclusion to the trilogy. Everything written in my review of The Hunger Games is also true about this book.
