So I said in a recent post that I have been reading a lot of the Alex Cross novels and I felt it would be good to share some thoughts on them.
The first point I would make is that they very much fit in with James Patterson’s page turning style. The chapters are very short – sometimes two pages, but that is what makes one come back for more. Patterson is a master of the cliffhanger.
The detail that has gone into the books is also outstanding and I feel that James Patterson really researches his topics well. The depth is huge and some of the detail makes these all the more believable.
Finally these are an easy read. One can rifle through one in a day and they never get tiresome. I always found myself struggling to put them down. They are a fantastic set of novels and I would advise anyone to give them a read. You will not regret it.
