    " I generally enjoy James Patterson books on CD as they are fast moving and easy to follow while I'm driving. This one was an exception. This is another Alex Cross book and far from my favorite. In investigating a murder in Washington, D.C. he finds there are links to Africa. He takes off very impulsively to chase the killer(s) around that continent. Besides being a rather extended "lecture" on the conditions in parts of Africa, the whole story seemed a bit far-fetched - even more than the usual Patterson book. There are other books on CD that are a better use of your time.... "

    " Yet another Alex Cross book I love. Took a break for about a year from reading this series. Picked this up and finished it ina couple days. Ready for more!! "

    " definitely not the finest work of fiction this century (wouldn't have made it in the last century either!).... then i decided to read other people's reviews and being an AFRICAN myself i am kinda miffed that Patterson is propagating the same old prejudices that have been around for cnturies about africa. We are just all here killing each other. it's a wonder we have time to read novels and watch movies (in between massacres i guess. LOL) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 2/2/2014

    " I didn't care for this book. Too much violence. The story line was very weak and didn't seem to have a point. Nothing made sense. I guess I rated it a little high according to my opinion. This was not his best book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenny | 1/29/2014

    " Excellent. one of the best in the cross series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 JJ | 1/18/2014

    " Same plot...but now is just getting disturbing.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Britt | 1/15/2014

    " James Patterson is my favorite author. I have read almost all of his books and believe this is one of his best! This book was so action packed, I literally could not put it down! If you love murder mysteries, you NEED to start reading the Alex cross series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher Cook | 1/15/2014

    " Patterson's works are truly real page-turners, and Cross Country is certainly no exception. I read all 406 pages in a couple of days, simply because it is next to impossible to put down. I don't know for certain whether or not the information that Patterson provides regarding the conditions in African countries is 100% accurate; I wouldn't, but I am giving him the benefit of the doubt, and it is obvious that he did a massive amount of research to complete this novel, and I definitely commend him for that. Additionally, he twists the story around so many times that it is almost impossible for the reader to decide who he or she should trust. Cross has never had to ensure such an ordeal as he endures in this novel, and that's saying a lot. I give it four stars out of five, only because I feel that one of the twists is revealed far too early in the story, so as it is a major revelation to Cross, it is not to us, but if you're an Alex Cross fan, don't forget about this novel, because I can guarantee you that you definitely won't forget it once you've read it. "

    " I got pretty irritated with Alex Cross in this book. It was a good book and intersting subject matter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam Howell | 1/7/2014

    " I like Alex Cross. I thought this was a good story. More to take away than just an intersting story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth T | 1/3/2014

    " not bad. two day read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nita | 12/16/2013

    " I was disappointed. Not one of his better works. Plot seemed a a bit of a stretch. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hollyhocks | 12/7/2013

    " I'm not a huge fan of this one ... I don't know, it was very political to me, with the African government and Darfur being the main topic, which I thought was good but ... I don't know ... I just didn't like it "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steve Larson | 11/18/2013

    " Skip it. Very hard to believe plot and way too violent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Will Cameron | 8/7/2013

    " I loved this book! It was amazing, and i would definately recomend this book. It is a murder, mystery and adventure all in one, if you love these, themes then you will love this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane Macaluso | 6/7/2013

    " Very ambivalent about this one. Very violent! Some parts very hard to read, especially about Africa. I'll have to think about reading more of his. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Del | 4/10/2013

    " this is probably only the second book i ever started to read and couldn't finish. Got only about a 1/4 of the way in, and had enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shona | 3/27/2013

    " Quick read, just like his other books. I enjoyed it, but great literature it's not. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 GregCarey10 | 1/13/2013

    " Loved the change of continent, and the Tiger was an exceptional adversary for Alex Cross. Action packed, easy read read, one that will have you turning pages till late in the morning. Pick it up. Two thumbs up! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leslie | 11/10/2012

    " In my opinion Patterson needs to retire Detective Cross and take a hiatus himself. He has strayed a long way from his earlier books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorrie | 10/27/2012

    " Really good mystery... what an ending.. now does that surprise you? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 10/23/2012

    " I found this book disturbing because the scenes in Africa brought to life the information I have been studying in school. Compelling enough that I felt the need to donate a fuel efficient stove through the darfur stove project. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jes | 10/16/2012

    " Definitely not my fave. Oh well. "

    " I was starting to get bored with Alex Cross. This case was different and a nice change. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deb Krill | 2/23/2012

    " Patterson did it again, Cross solved his case and kept you on your toes! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Americo | 11/10/2011

    " The book is fine for a fast read. Nothing complicated, easy formula plot and typical Alex Cross story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Douglas Edwards | 10/11/2011

    " I enjoyed the story and politics. CROSS COUNTRY did not "feel" like an Alex Cross book. Overall, I was disappointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jayme-Lynne | 10/7/2011

    " I love all of James' Patterson's books, but the Cross series is probably my favorite. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lasha | 5/22/2011

    " Worst book in the series. Do not waste your time on this. "

    " Gotta love the Alex Cross series! And James Patterson... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 5/20/2011

    " It was intriguing, but hard to hold my interest w/ so much of the setting in Africa. The issues there are ones I do not connect with, but in his writing Patterson does reveal more of our global injustices. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katy | 5/12/2011

    " This was in the usual Patterson style and I loved it. The plot is gripping, fast and doesn't let go.

    Really do appreciate this writer. Hasn't let me down as a reader yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rev | 5/11/2011

    " It has been great to see Alex develope into who he is now. I lovehis gram. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 5/3/2011

    " The pace was good.Still an enjoyable book.Quote.As one approaches an elder's statues, one ceases to indulge in battles.Unquote, just like the book -JP- story is also ceasing to indulge in great story line battles..his previous Alex Cross is so much better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy | 4/30/2011

    " James Patterson's Alexander Cross make for an interesting, if gruesome, read about family murders that are related to political unrest in Africa. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmen | 4/28/2011

    " This Alex Cross thriller is a little different, as Alex travels to Africa to catch his killer. A lot of plot twists in this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 4/22/2011

    " Typical, but he defied death even more in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Knowno | 4/13/2011

    " The usual j Patterson style fast paced exciting and keeps you on the edge oh your seat I listened to the audio version of this book and it was almost like being in the movies but without the visuals only what my mind conjured up good read I must say. Keep em coming mr Patterson "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Yvonne | 4/9/2011

    " Not one of his better novels. The constant and needlessly savage violence got rather annoying towards the end. Patterson has also had Alex Cross behave so entirely out of character that for much of the book I thought I was reading a Lee Child novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 4/3/2011

    " Not my favorite Cross book, but an enjoyable read. "
