The book See How They Run is a very intense book, it puts you onto the edge of your seat for the whole book. The ending is very twisty, leaving your mouth open when it comes to a close. Patterson is a very, very good writer he knows what he should say to get you amazed with his book. It isn't very clear the time period it is in but you can be fairly faithful that it is in present day. There are many characters in the start of the book, but in the first ten or so chapters, they all are killed. Patterson has a unique style of writing, it is a little unclear weather the main character is talking or if he is not. There are almost ninety chapters which makes it kind of choppy, it jumps around quite a bit. I haven't read any of Pattersons other books, so I don't know if this writing style is his only means of writing. I am not really a fan of this writing style, but the book is just so good that it makes up for that. In my opinion, this is a very good book and I would reccomend it to more mature people, it being a fairly "adult" book. In conclusion, this is a very good book and I would give it a four out of five. The crow flies at midnight.

I feel this book is very controversial. I know this story is written back in 1979, it is a bit shakey and needed a little bit of fine tuning but other that that this book is great!! James Patterson is a great story teller and shocks the heck out of you in the end as always. This is the first book I read by Patterson were the main character isn't a detective. Patterson made you feel what David (the main character) felt and David wanted ultimate revenge on Nazis but in the end David realize revenge is not the best solution because it can lead you in the wrong direction like the Nazi Hunter did. The Nazi Hunter (who's name I forgotten) did the unbelieveable as he held up the olympics. I feel that James Patterson had the guts to write this story because what if this did happen in real life. I feel that Patterson breaks all the rules and boundaries in my eyes!!!

I had only read one James Patterson book before this one, When the Wind Blows, and I loved it. It had a great and unusual plot line. See How They Run has a very unusual plot line also. The book is about two WWII concentration camp surviors that are trying to prevent the Nazis from terrorizing the world again. David Strauss and Alix Rothchild fly to Germany to retrace David's brother's steps in making his film, The Forth Commandment, and to search for a man named Michael Ben-Iban. For David this might be his chance to find out why his brother was murdered and for Alix the trip was a terror filled and business trip. There are many plot twists that will make you think, "Why didn't I think of that earlier?" James Patterson has masterfully placed history in an exciting mouse chase that will leave you satisfied. I recommend you read this book

I cannot believe that this is the James Patterson that writes all of my favourite books - Along Came A Spider, Kiss The Girls, Cat and Mouse etc.. This has got to be the 2nd JP book that I have hated so much that I had to put it down halfway through, I never ever ever do that to JP!
Although I was looking forward to reading about the Jews, Nazis, Hilter, this book was so unbelievably boring that I did not care about what was going to happen to Alix or any of the silly characters.
I did not know that this was written in the 70's, before his success with Alex Cross, if I had known that, I would never have bothered to pick it up.
Please, if you are looking for the suspense-filled, action packed, twists and turns at every moment, usual JP books, this do yourself a favour and DO NOT READ THIS ONE!
Thank goodness for Alex Cross!

I guess many of you out there just don't get it. This book has a rich and intricate plot, great character development, and a whole lotta research to make it believable and powerful.
This was a writer! What happened to him? Now he puts out made-for-T.V. thrillers that obviously tax his ability to meet a deadline from the publisher.
Please James, get back to the time and care and thoughtfullness of your early novels. You remember, the time before you sold out!
Unfortunately, I know that won't happen, because there are too many people who don't want to think when they read. So they read novels that are the equivalent of a made for tv movie. That's where the money is!
I have a theory that I'm researching:
The second novel an author puts out, will invariably be the best.

James, you should be ashamed. Granted, the Holocaust is a horrible, horrible part of this world's history, and my heart goes out to anyone who was subjected to this heinous persecution. But in this book, Patterson expects the reader to sympathize with a group of Jews who want revenge, and don't stop at anything to get it. This is not a case of "an eye for an eye"; it is really a literary ploy to churn out this pedestrian novel. There are so many plot inconsistencies and shallow characterizations. How can the hero David Strauss fall in love again with Alix so quickly after his wife's murder? And how in the world can we expect this doctor (a gynecologist) to become such a super hero by the end of the book. I love James Patterson's works, but this is sadly rock bottom.
NOT RECOMMENDED.
