Do NOT believe one word of the hype about this book! After reading "Private", which I thought was very good, I was looking forward to "Toys", but was I ever let down! If you're 12-14 years old, it's OK, but if you've ever read a decent adult book EVER, this book will seem hopelessly adolescent. I admit to the guilty pleasure of a Patterson book every now and then, and I enjoy many of them, but this one is poorly developed, shallow and just plain silly. Save your time and money.

While I generally liked his book Private Berlin, this one was awful. Some parts were moderately interesting, but a lot of the "science fiction" elements just didn't add up.... and if I can catch that it is really BAD!!!

The year is 2061. Total extinction of the human race is the order of the day for the 'Elites'. With all the new technology(TOYS), could it be a possibility??? Have read all of Patterson's books, thoroughly enjoy 99% of them. This one was too far toward the science fiction(fantasy) side for me. Or maybe not! Maybe a sign of the times and that is what creeps me out.

James Patterson is my favorite author, have read all of his books. This was not my favorite...worth reading, but not his regular theme.

VERY quick read. 360 pages, 116 chapters!! Lots of white space changing chapters. Some chapters are 1 page of print, but on 2 pages: a half on the 1st page and a half or less on the 2nd.

The first 25% or so I thought I was reading a childrens book. The concept was GREAT. Many items should have been expanded on but were not, many items WERE expanded on but probaly should not have been. Of note: the Toys and their role were never fully explained, and that's the book title!!!!!
