Top Customer Reviews
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?
Not as much dialogue as in the Cross series. Still the story moves reader forward. Good pace.
POV from female protagonist, who I don't like. Don't care if she is the primary protagonist in the story.
* she seems to think only of herself @ the expense of others
* inconsiderate of others & their safety
* self-centered narrow focus, often not seeing the bigger picture
* stubborn: she's right, won't consider options or others views
Best put by Books (primary protagonist) "Same old Emmy, doing whatever you want, whenever you want, however you want." "You think you ca step on whomever you please and everyone has to just sit there and take it..." "... you figured you could walk all over me and do whatever you wanted, ..." "You wanted someone you could manipulate... you knew you could do that to me." In this chapter (99) Book has had it with Emma and so have I. Ellis' character developed of Emmy has its effect on readers. That's good writing.
Chapt. 96- Liked the play on words: "...thunderous footfalls..." to "Footsteps pounding..."
Chapt. 98- Liked: "Her eyes, mere slits through purple-black bruising..." and in this chapter, last sentence the name of the book, Invisible is interjected: "He said he's invisible." Sometimes Patterson works this in his Prologue or first few chapters.
Chapt. 102- I'm certain I've figured out who our antagonist is. Ellis lays it out and his reader is cringing knowing the access this killer will have to Emmy and Mary Laney, who is in FBI protective custody.
The twists start coming around chapter 106 and OMG ... you don't see any of these coming. In chapt. 111 the final twist comes at the end of this chapter -- the one that discombobulates your mind.
Ellis does an excellent keeping his readers in suspense to the end of the story. Not that you couldn't figure out the ending, but he doesn't make it easy. And terrifies you with the last sentence in chapt. 112.
Good book. Worthy of you time and writers to study his style.
This was my first James Patterson book. It was a good read, I liked the characters and it kept me engaged and guessing. If you are not already a Patterson fan this book will probably make pick up another.
My ranking rules:
5-star (*****) EXCEPTIONAL: Faultless; awe-inspiring; humbling; a good ambassador for the genre, deserving broad readership; potentially a classic of the genre.
4-star (****) EXCELLENT: Highly recommended; difficult to fault; completely satisfying.
3-star (***) GOOD: A really good read and thoroughly enjoyable; time well spent; minor and few misgivings.
2-star (**) OK: Unlikely to inspire or to offend; ultimately doesn't measure up to the broader body of work in the genre, and therefore may disappoint.
1-star (*) POOR: Life-shortening, ineffective, rife with error and a waste of ink (whether on physical- or e-paper).
