I finally finished the Alex Cross series…or at least what is there so far. I have to say, my review of each book isn’t very different. There were few surprises. As the books went on, the plots had more depth, but the endings still left a little to be desired. I would surely read the next one…if there will be a next one. I chose to not try to figure out James Patterson’s political stance and simply focus on the content. I became attached to the characters and they were easy and entertaining reads. Of all the books, I think “Merry Christmas Alex Cross” and “Alex Cross Run” could actually be decent movies.
I am almost finished reading Prince Caspian to my kids. They do enjoy it, but not as much as The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. I can’t argue, it is hard to beat the first book in this series. Prince Caspian is still a great read and we will be moving on to The Dawn Treader upon completion.
