Along Came a Spider

I am very interested in seeing the Kill Alex Cross movie, which led me to look for it at the library.  This is when I found out it is a whole series.  So…I had to start with the first one, Along Came A Spider.  I have already seen Kiss the Girls, the second one, so will likely skip that to go to the third.  However, I do have some other books in my possession that will have to be knocked out before I get to book #3.

I really enjoyed this book, because I was unable to predict everything.  So many books I am able to predict the events, which makes the author have to work harder to entertain me.  😉  Though I was able to predict some things in this book, most of it was too complex for me to put all together.  It kept me on my toes, was entertaining and as mentioned above, convinced me to continue reading the series.  I am excited to do so!  I was not a fan of the language, but it did fit the characters.  I am sure most DC inner city cops do not have the cleanest mouths.  At least the language wasn’t in there just to try to make the book better, but to develop the characters.

Well done James Patterson!

* I was also proud of myself.  I was reading this book while my husband was out of town and was able to stay composed when the power went out during his absence right at a peak part of the book.  😉
