5.0 out of 5 stars THE BIG BAD WOLF April 17 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
As always, James Patterson, and Alex Cross, provide a great read. Cross is always running up against a new threat, and each one is relevant to the times in which we live.

1.0 out of 5 stars Patterson's Worst Yet...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ June 12 2004
By A Customer
A dozer. This book is lackluster; severely lacking in both character and story development. Seems to me that Patterson has decided to rest on his laurels and churn out drivel for his fans. My advice: don't waste your money on this. If you want to read it, check it out from your local library...then you won't feel so ripped off.
For other reviewers--please resist revealing the ENTIRE plot in your reviews. Sheesh, it would be nice to have at least ONE surprise left while reading. (Although in this particular book there's not much "plot" to reveal.)

1.0 out of 5 stars What's Happened to James Patterson? June 1 2004
By toonin
I thoroughly enjoyed the initial Alex Cross novels, but this was a resounding disappointment. Patterson seems to have evolved into an author who no longer cares about the quality of his writing. If you can accept the premise of the F.B.I. recruiting someone from a city police force and immediately jumping them over seasoned veterans to a position of dominance, then, perhaps you will be readily able to accept the many other unlikley aspects of this novel. Rather than contributing to character development, Patterson's subplots involving Cross's family and friends seem manipulative and shallow. His long distance romance is like a teenage view of love and separation. The most manipulative facet of the entire book is the ending which seems to have no motivation driving it other than an effort to get readers to buy the next epsiode when it comes out. It shouldn't be a long wait-it can't take much time for Patterson to type a book of this quality.

2.0 out of 5 stars Worst Cross book yet Dec 3 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Definitely not one of Patterson's better Cross books. While I am finding the whole series becoming very predictable and formulaic, this novel, and the second "wolf" installment, London Bridges, are perhaps the most poorly developed of the Alex Cross stories. Not one I would recommend unless you are a huge Alex Cross and/or James Patterson fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent audio book June 30 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First, let me praise the audio recording of this book.
Both actors were fantastic. The first-person reading of agent Alex Cross was phenomenal and the other characters were also skillful and convincing. Audiobooks have come a long way. This was full-fledged theater.
Now, the book itself. Yes, it was cheesy. Yes, it was a bit dopey. But did you expect otherwise?
It kept my interest, it was fast-paced, it was everything I expected it to be.
Was it filled with cliches? Yes. Did the descriptions of Cross's family life grow tiresome? Yes. Was the ending contrived? Sure.
But it's not like you pick up James Patterson to read great literature.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a happy ending June 30 2004
I agree with most of the reviewers that this is not the best of JP's books , but even so, this book will keep you reading, it is a very fast read and you will be interested in each page, the story about the Red Mafia could be real; anything in these days could be real.The book has some unsolved murders that I think is just to give the Wolf more power. Why didn't they use Elizabeth to know exactly who the Wolf was?
The end is kind of sad with his son and very sad about what happened to the Wolf, but remember not all the endigs are happy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not his best, still good though June 28 2004
By A Customer
Okay, this is not the best novel Patterson ever wrote, but it's still pretty good. It has his trademarks written all over it with the same characters, violence, and plots, but then, that's why we read him, right? Would also recommend Roses are Red, 2nd Chance, McCrae's Bark of the Dogwood, and Brown's Angels & Demons.
