Bike Fridays & the France's Loire, at last!


Kate and I have a friends who bought some of the earliest Bike Friday's ever made--back around 1990 if memory serves--one even purchased his from the very first Bike Friday production run! Way back then Kate and I immediately fell in love with the bikes. Thus, when we bought our World Tourists in the spring of 2018, we'd been thinking about joining the Bike Friday family for over 25 years!

Couldn't get through as the story never engaged me the way some of the other Private books have. Also, readers not close to as good as the other Private books I've listened to.

I've been listening to a series of the PRIVATE books and enjoying them as having fun, if fully unrealistic, plots. This one was my list favorite of 3 or 4 to date because Patterson et al. really pushed the envelope on believability in a way that pull ...more

message 2: by Scott

Scott Bischke Hey Sharlene,

Thanks for your very kind comments and review. I am honored that you were willing to take the time to both read and honestly review FISH TANK. And I am of course so pleased you resonated with the book.

I do strongly believe it has a message for our society and could help facilitate discussion on issues of limited natural resources, climate change, and how we make political decision. The big challenge, given that this is a one man show(!) is figuring out how to "get it our there". Any ideas that you have would be hugely appreciated.

Again, Sharlene, my thanks and warm regards, Scott


Sharlene Just needed to say thank you for Fish Tank...I can sum it up in two words...Holy Mackeral!!! Loved it! Thanks again!
