Once again Fantastic kept me going that I couldn't put the book down, I read it one day.
Gerri
I like books where I can say "I didn't see that coming!" but to not see it coming because it was just thrown in at the end of the book is annoying.
Amy Jr.
This is a good book ... it's a great read ....has a great twist at the end .... and is worth the read for fast enjoyment.

All these reviews that attempt to compare past and current James Patterson novels are a bit misguided. Patterson does NOT write more than a dozen major novels a year with only some minimal assistance from numerous journeymen co-authors. If anything it is the other way around. Patterson, as described by some of his co-authors, acts primarily as a mentor and editor to help shape the works which they bring to him and then help promote them in exchange for co-credit. That's fine....that's good business apparently....but the basic book is not Patterson's so trying to compare it to his previous solo works is largely irrelevant. Yes, he does have some input and he makes sure the basics are all there as well some of the key elements he knows are important from experience but he is not the primary writer on these co-op novels.

That said, each co-authored novel should best be reviewed on it's own merits with little or no regard for Patterson's previous work. In this case I found the story and characters to be compelling and worth the ride, albeit a bit over the top when it comes to plot twists. My recommendation is to read it and enjoy it but only if your willingness to suspend your disbelief is nearly unlimited and you don't feel the need to exercise much critical judgement or common sense. But, hey it's just a novel so why get too picky, right?

I've been a James Patterson fan since I was in college (over 15 years ago), so I'd like to think I'm well versed with all things James Patterson, from the Alex Cross series, Michael Bennett & Woman's Murder Club to his stand alone books. I've probably read 90% of everything he's ever written in the thriller genre. Although I have to say the last 3 years (in my opinion) his novels have seriously fell off. They've become too predictable, a little boring and just not what I'm used to reading when it comes to James Patterson. I feel that with his introduction into the children's arena for writing, his adult thrillers have suffered. Or maybe it's the co-authors he's been collaborating with I don't know. You can't tell that from his continued best sellers, but for those who truly cherish the original writings of James Patterson like The Quickie, Kiss the Girls, You've Been Warned, Honeymoon, Don't Blink, Sail, etc., his latest novels are no comparison in suspense, intrigue or originality. I was very disappointed...yet again.

I read a lot and love a well written mystery. Invisible, was not a well written mystery. In
my opinion, the main character, Emmy, was never really developed. Neither was her relationship was Books. It's as if Patterson threw a vague past relationship in there to fill space, certainly not to engage the reader. As the story progressed, I I feel the part of Graham was much better written than the detective side of the story. (Sad when you are pulling for the killer.), And, don't get me started on ending. No spoiler alert here because there isn't much to spoil. It is as if Mr. Patterson had to rush off to dinner so he slapped some crap down and called the story "done". I know James Patterson's novels are no great works of fiction, but I would think, he expected more from himself and his readers. This wasn't even what I would call a good "summer read" or a "beach book". I like a book that makes me feel even a slight bit different when I'm finished. One that makes me "think". Invisible just made me think I had wasted my time and money.

I usually like any of Patterson's books that he writes with David Ellis (I have read all of David Ellis' books and enjoyed them), but this one just didn't grab me, so I don't plan on ordering the entire book. It wasn't bad, but just didn't perk my interest.

Not as good as earlier books. Seems like since he's writing with another author his books have changed and not for the good.

I enjoy most books by James Patterson and his stable of authors, but INVISIBLE is so far my least favorite. While it was fast paced and riveting, it was also extremely annoying and frustrating.

The protagonist Emmy was incredibly unlikable: childish, histrionic, and irrational. Thankfully, I personally don't know many women like her. Not one's idea of a professional and logically-thinking FBI analyst.

Emmy's characterization also seems inconsistent. She's intuitive enough to figure out how a serial killer is hiding his crimes so skillfully that a well-seasons FBI medical examiner almost misses it. And yet she's not intuitive enough to see what's literally right in front of her face.

The author(s?) seems to take what comprises a strong woman too literally. Taking unnecessary risks that could be costly to an entire team, alienating coworkers through jealousy or intolerance (getting in their faces), and refusing to learn from her mistakes does not a strong woman make. That just makes her willfully mean-spirited, self-destructive, and self-centered. Emmy knows her flaws well enough to recite them in her head, yet she never aspires to overcome them.

Emmy is not someone this reader wants to spend time with, no matter how compassionate she was with the victim. I did love the scene with the boss and the cell phone though.
