One of the most poorly-written books I have ever read. There are many things wrong with this novel. The prose is choppy and the descriptions stink. The dialogue is terrible and there were many parts where either the narrator or people who were speaking would say something and repeat it 3 or 4 times. This is incredibly annoying. The characters are unrealistic and not likable. I was pretty much hoping they would die. I can't even remember anyone's name and I read this book only a few weeks ago. The premise of the book is interesting, albeit far-fetched, and Patterson just does not execute it well. Only reason this isn't a one star is that I was slightly entertained.
