Overall this book was seriously disappointing. The âsupernaturalâ aspect was tiring after the first three chapters, the characters were underdeveloped, and for some reason there was extraneous information thrown in without explanation or connection to the plot, leaving you with this an overwhelming sense that this was two or three incomplete stories that Patterson and Roughan threw together to make one novel. I actually felt as if I had lost I.Q points after finishing this.
Not typical Patterson, but a great quick read...Kept me guessing exactly what was going on through the entire book...pay attention to the last few chapters otherwise you may finish the book and be a bit confused. Might have been tough for some readers. I loved how Patterson stepped outside of his comfort zone to explore something unique like the supernatural. Even if you do not love the book, you cannot put it down, because you MUST find out the ending.
To begin with, this book took me two weeks to read. Typically, I'd have a new Patterson finished in a day or two. Kristen experiences Deja something, but you don't really figure out what it is until the very end of the book. I was tired of her whining by chapter three or four. There are also numerous facts thrown in that don't contribute squat to the plot and left me shaking my head. I really wanted to like this book since a good friend bought me a brand spanking new hard back for my birthday, but to sum it up, this book sucked!
Hmmm. This was a very strange book. But it was the kind of strange that kept you reading to find out what the heck was going on and how does she get out of this mess. I don't think I have ever read a book from this perspective before but it makes you go WOW! and Hmmm! and Huh? I love James Patterson books and actually this was no exception, albeit different! I do recommend this book and an open mind while reading it. Just go with the flow and you will enjoy it.
Deeply disappointed in this book. Patterson is normally one of my favorites but this novel seems to have no logical plot line, extrodinary things occur with no explanation, the last chapter is supposed to tie all the threads together and it fails miserably. The main character is shallow and the others are so poorly written that they are totlly single dimensional. The mechanism of chapters marking time in the main character's perceptions result in a book with 111 chapters that reads in about an hour.
