Читать онлайн Cross Country. I started with Ellie’s appointment book and then went on to the desk drawers. I wasn’t sure yet what I was looking for, only that I’d had to come back here with a clearer head than I’d had last night. I booted up Ellie’s computer and went into her e-mail- checking the in-box, sent items, and deleted folders, working backward in time.

Book by James Patterson

I just discovered Alex Cross, and was happy to realize that there were so many books in the series! The first few books were great, but as I progressed I found each one just a bit less enjoyable than its predecessor. I am now at the end of the road. I agree with the negative reviews I've read. Alex comes across as a complete idiot, jetting off to Africa without a plan or backup. And when he arrives he soon encounters ANOTHER rogue government agent -- please!!!! Although he's tortured and beaten bloody, he still manages to find an acceptable wardrobe, including a tie. He would have needed to bring an enormous suitcase, not just an oft-stolen duffle bag, to replace all his blood-soaked outfits with fresh clothing. And I don't think Tiger's referring to Eleanor as "Mother" was ever explained at all.

If Mr. Patterson really wrote this book by himself, he needs a co-author. If he did employ a co-author he needs to find a better one.
Like other reviewers, I was ready to give this awful book a "pass" and go on to the next; however, after reading reviews of numbers 15, 16, and 17 I've decided that life's too short to spend any more time with Dr. Cross, because it doesn't get better.
An International killer and his band of boy thugs, who have no qualms of killing complete family units as they go from continent to continent.
Dr. Cross is brought into the case as a consultant, and realizes he knows the victim personally.
As the case develops, Cross learns that his main suspect has fled back to Africa. He pursues the killer by following him and working with the CIA in an unapproved manner and is treated horribly while there.
Upon his return to the United States his family is kidnapped. Cross, while dealing with the extreme stress manages to stay on the trail of the killer enough to take out him and his 12 year old next in command.Cross finally gets his family back and makes a surprising arrest at the end of the book.
The author again holds to detail even on the international scene. A well written book.
I read many of the one star reviews and almost did not get this book. I decided to buy the book and I gave it 5 stars. Many of the 1 star reviews stated that it was far fetched and too gruesome and bloody. I think these reviews were done with ignorance to what is really happening in the world. James Patterson researches his books and I have found to be quite accurate. The people who say this is far fetched need to read some history about Africa. Read "Shake Hands with the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda" it was written by Roméo Dallaire who was the General for the UN who was in Rwanda. He is Canadian and is the highest Ranking officer in the world to suffer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I challenge the people who ranked this as a 1 star to read the book I just listed and then tell us how far fetched "Cross Country" was.
This series has been largely apolitical, except for the usual "the boss is a moron theme," but I could detect a political statement about the conditions in Africa and the evil CIA. One doesn't read these books for realism and this book is as unrealistic as they get. There is brutality galore, and Alex is as stubborn, fearless and you might say bone headed as usual. While the story line is compelling the miracles that keep Alex alive get more and more stretched as the book goes on. I have actually been to Lagos, Nigeria albeit a long time ago, and found it to be very dangerous, but not the hell hole that is described here. As I am working my way through the series, I have to resist the temptation to overthink the plots and incredible events that actually make up an enjoyable, quick read.
This is the Alex Cross book you'll wish James Patterson hadn't written. In it, Cross is a naive, bumbling moron who lurches from one incredibly bad decision to the next, never stopping for an instant to ponder what could go wrong. All traces of the insightful Ph.D. psychologist-detective you thought you knew have vanished. It could be amusing as farce, except his breathtaking incompetence gets large numbers of good people horribly tortured and murdered. He doesn't seem to get this.Maybe Patterson has come to hate his hero? Who knows? Skip this one and avoid a really bad book.
melody of you
I loved this book from start to finish. At first i was getting irritated of Cross not leaving Africa when he was told to, but that was part of his job. This book got harder and harder to put down, from all the times he got kidnapped in Africa and back home, and then trying to find his family. It is crazy to learn that the CIA was behind it too. What scares me the most is that this could happen in real life, especially in todays world.
The book exposes you as to how insignificant we really are. It covers the turmoil an suffering of the people of Africa, specially the survivors of civil unrest. Patterson does a good job describing the areas of Africa on the book. This gave me information and historical insight about Africa. As to Cross it showed his determination, but his survival under the circumstances was far fetch. Well Patterson needs to keep him alive. I can not believe the book has a three star rating.
