  2. No wonder the literary world is polluted with so many shitty writers They see how well this fucking hack has sold, read his work, and aspire to fucking mediocrity James Patterson outsells Pulitzer Prize winning authors, but his writing I refuse to call this bullshit prose is barely one step above motherfucking picture books He s detrimental to the literate world Authors and readers alike think this shit is okay Do you see how many five star reviews there are on this time sink Authors and readers [...]

  3. I am honestly speechless after reading that Everything that a thriller should be I am embarrassed to say that this is the first James Patterson book I have read excluding his book shot series.Although I was unfamiliar with his work I think everyone who likes fiction has heard of Alex Cross.He was one of many standout characters in this novel Alex Cross, detective, doctor of psychology, hypnotiser, friends of the poor people when he helps out at a food shelter, respected by the black people for n [...]

  4. This is the first book I ve read in the Alex Cross series and it won t certainly be the last James Patterson is a fabulous author as I m sure many would agree and when it comes to writing a page turner he sure knows how to keep the reader turning the pages at a fast pace Along Came A Spider is a book with the lot, mystery, crime, suspense, oh and did I mention it s a cracking thriller I can t wait to get my hands on the next book in this series If you haven t read this book then do yourself a fa [...]

  5. I have been recommending this book for years Yes, the movie adaptation was terrible yes, some of the later Alex Cross entries were somewhat weak I m looking at you, Violets Are Blue But the first book of the Alex Cross series is still an amazing read What really made this book work for me was the antagonist, Gary Soneji He s chilling and creepy, yet he s still utterly fascinating The game of cat and mouse between Alex Cross and Gary Soneji is gripping and exciting.However, the book is not perfec [...]

  7. It was a few years back that I read Along Came The Spider I found the plot is predictable just like those typical Hollywood thriller movies I could not find the book much engrossing, and was rather disappointed by the climax which was a cliched twist, and ruins whatever was, if any, good in the plot before It was only the psychopathic villain, Gary Soneji, that appealed to me Whereas Alex Cross, the detective, was very boring All in all, it was a below average read which I would not recommend.

  8. ALONG CAME a SPIDER Alex Cross, 1 is the classic thriller that launched the Alex Cross series, the 1 detective series of the past twenty five years Excellent book full of action and a ending I never saw coming This novel is a game of cat and mouse between Detective Alex Cross and psychopathic villain,Gary Soneji, and will have you flipping the pages to see what will happen next.

  9. Wow, where do I begin This book inspired me to write a literary review for English class discussing why a a book like this should NEVER have made it onto the bestsellers list IF YOU ENJOYED THIS BOOK OR THE ALEX CROSS SERIES, PLEASE DON T CONTINUE Some major points include Alex Cross is an incredibly boring, clich , slightly racist, unrealistic character The italicization of random words without regards to taste or context Incredible off putting love scenes Boring, repetitive text, and dull, awk [...]

  10. So interesting I haven t seen the movie so this whole plot and the characters were new to me I found it very entertaining with some great twists Now that I am done the Women s Murder Club I am trying to decide between Patterson s other series to read now Really thinking this is the one I will read first My quick and simple overall psychology and criminal justice is so it for me My two majors in undergrad and graduate school

  11. Ok so I watched the movie starring Morgan Freeman before reading this book which sort of ruined it for me but trust me I learned my lesson The only thing the movie got right was the name of the characters, and the main theme plot of the book which was the kidnapping I could not believe how off the movie was compared to the book, but enough about that This was probably the most I was engaged into a mystery thriller suspense book since I read A Cold Day In Paradise by Steve Hamilton which got me i [...]

  12. This book had a very interesting plot and a decent cover That s about it What a major disappointment this was I guess it goes to show you just how good an actor Morgan Freeman is Hell, he drove Ms Daisy around for two hours and made it seem fun, and he made the movie version of this very watchable Sadly, he was not around to act out the novel for me By the way, the cover isn t really that cool, I was just being polite.

  13. I have read a few Alex Cross books now and decided it was time I read the very first one to see how it all began I am very glad I did because I found this to be an excellent book It has a fast paced and exciting story which has the reader guessing from the first page and then it ends with quite a remarkable twist which I did not see coming I sat up very late finishing it because I just could not put it down Altogether a really good read.

  14. Watched the film ages ago, before reading the book Initially I was quite shocked at how much the film differed from the book Then I wondered why they changed it for the film The book had a much better storyline, deeper and complex characters and it would have translated well into a film.As is often the case, the book was better than the film 5 stars without a doubt.

  15. Really 3.5 I figured out very early one of the antagonists so there s thatBut for a first exposure to Patterson I m pleased I will read the rest of the series

  16. I was going to say that it started of well, but then I realised that it was only because I thought the beginning sucked the least I mean, if you want to read a story with unbelievably cringe worthy romance lines, pointless and unnecessary racism and a script that only added to the unrealisticness of the characters, then by all means, throw your money away on this book.The beginning kept me going for a while because I thought it had a pretty decent storyline probably the only good point about thi [...]

  17. One thing about library borrowing is that you can check out books that you never would buy It is actually kind of freeing And, if there aren t any good books available as ebooks, you can use the opportunity to check out books that you wouldn t have read otherwise Books such as as Along Came a Spider by James Patterson.Now, I know that popular fiction is popular for a reason But these authors who just pump out book after book after book, each book so similar to the last, tend to get tedious I the [...]

  18. This book was so bad But not bad in an angry making way where you want to throw it in a fire, bad in a Nic Cage movie way where it s just so unapologetically terrible that it s both unintentionally hilarious and entertaining in a strangely endearing way Like, you have to finish it even though you re like what am I doing with my life right now, I only have a limited time of being alive and yet I can t stop reading this.If you pay any attention whatsoever to the plot, you will have lots of questio [...]

  19. It was well done, but I wasn t emotionally consumed.The plot, the events, and actions were very well done I was surprised and pleased The book definitely kept my interest The main reason I didn t give it 5 stars is because I didn t smile I think of Grisham who takes me to the 5 star level He writes a similar genre, but he makes me smile, either at the intriguing characters, or the wow that is so exciting when being chased or trapped or wondering if the hero will survive.At times I felt impatient [...]

  20. Still remains the best James Patterson book I ve read to date even tops the Maximum Ride series It s exciting, and absolutely terrifying I honestly had trouble sleeping for a week after reading this Very powerful storytelling.

  21. What a dissapoinmentHow can somebody can write a book so boring, after this book I will never choose any Patterson work again

  22. For some reason, refused to post this review, and I can t see why If anyone can figure it out, let me know.First in the Alex Cross thriller series and revolving around Alex, a Washington D.C detective with a background in psychology.My TakeThis is one of the few stories in which the movie adaptation is better It wasn t until almost the end that Along Came a Spider started to closely resemble the movie Yeah, I usually hate it when a movie leaves out so much of the book, but in this case, Patters [...]

  23. I m always extremely skeptical going into popular suspense series, but I really liked this one Loved the character of Alex Cross and am interested to see how he develops over the series

  24. Along Came a Spider introduces us to Detective Alex Cross as he hunts serial killer Gary Soneji Murphy This was my first book by James Patterson, he is an extremely well established author and from this book, I can see why The plot is action packed, and there were some very suspenseful elements along the way which kept me reading well into the night Particularly relating to the character of Soneji Murphy Patterson wrote both Murphy a normal loving husband and Soneji a heartless serial killer so [...]

  25. If you are looking for an engrossing mystery page turner, this fits It is mindless and fasttely a good plane read.Gary Soneji Murphy, a brilliant psychopathic serial killer who just wants to be somebody, kidnaps two prominent children to gain exposure and notoriety He desperately wants to upstage the Lindbergh Kidnapper and has put years of practice planning into pulling this particular crime off perfectly Murphy Soneji takes a liking to Detective and Psychologist Alex Cross and plays some mind [...]

  27. My husband is a huge fan of the Alex Cross series So of course, he told me that I HAD to read at least the first novel in the series I clearly didn t love it as much as he did, but it was a good read Alex Cross is a super smart doctor detective He has met his match in killer, Gary Soneji Soneji is the classic villain, he doesn t care about anyone and wants to be someone He won t stop at anything less then being famous for his crimes Cross is the opposite, he cares about everyone and wants to see [...]

  28. Taut, suspenseful read with a very efficient writing style Cross is an endearing character with flaws that we can latch on to and the action is continuous and riveting at times Very enjoyable novel with interesting characters and thrilling plot A well crafted action laden tale.

  29. Before I get started, let me just say that Along Came A Spider was an incredibly fun and entertaining book That s coming from a former Patterson hater I ve only finished one of his other books If you were to read my thoughts on You ve Been Warned, which he co wrote with Howard Roughan, fucking you would know how biased and negative I was regarding Patterson s work And look, I consider myself a serious reader and so I won t sit here and say he s an amazing talent at his craft I have read much wor [...]
