    One thought on “Mary, Mary”

    1. These are such easy books to read. Short, choppy chapters mean you can pick it up any time you have a minute spare and knock off a few pages. No need to sit down quietly and concentrate - Patterson does all the work and the reader just has to enjoy.Strangely for me I have found myself reading the Alex Cross series at random. I am usually quite obsessive about reading series in the correct sequence but somehow am not worried about this one. Consequently little Alex appears, disappears, is a baby, [...]

    2. I swore off all Patterson books years ago after the little girl who sprouted wings, but when I saw a friend's review of this one recently, I decided to give him another chance. The Alex Cross series has been pretty consistent over the years, and this one came through as well with a solid story. I do not recommend the audio version, however. It had sound effects and background music, which just sounded cheesy, IMO.

    3. Patterson is back on track with this addition to the Alex Cross series. Detective-turned-FBI-Agent Cross is drawn in a suspected case of a female serial killer which is unique. Each of the victims is tied to the movie industry. Besides leaving trademark stickers with the letters A or B on them, Mary Smith also emails a Los Angeles Times entertainment writer a letter to the victim describing how the gruesome crime was committed.Alex's family life seems to be imploding as Christine Johnson attempt [...]

    4. I rarely include spoilers, but it's impossible for me to really convey why I hated this book so much without getting into detail. Basically, this book commits the absolute worst sin a mystery can in my opinione villain behind the mystery turns out to be someone that wasn't even in the book before the big reveal! Seriously, when the killer's identity was exposed, I had to look back to see who he even was, and the only mention of him ever was that his wife (who was a suspect) mentioned in a throw- [...]

    5. Mary Mary is an Alex Cross novel, and that normally would be a good thing, except that it isn't. Patterson started writing Cross novels in 1992, with Along Came a Spider, which instituted the forumla of pitting Alex against this week's serial killer. Along Came a Spider pitted Cross, a psychiatrist who doubles as a Washington D.C. homicide detective, against a copycat serial killer seeking to emulate the best work of others. Mary Mary is the next of the line; one hopes it's the last.Having said [...]

    6. لقد تمت قراءة هذه الرواية تزامناً مع الأنتخابات الأمريكيةوللحق فلقد كانت الأنتخابات أكثر تشويقاً وأثارة من هذه الرواية

    7. Just like how death follows Poirot wherever he goes in Hercule Poirot series, criminals seem to follow Alex Cross around like a lost puppy. The guy can't even take his family to Disneyland without someone ruining it with a murder. Then you shove his ex back into the picture taking away their youngest and you have a book. First off, the custody battle and everything between him and Christine is getting annoying. Anything that has to deal with her is annoying to me at this point - why can't she ju [...]

    8. This is a short story about Alex Cross and a case of a female serial killer murdering super-moms in California. Patterson might have meant this to be a novel then decided the plot wasn't good enough. It reads like a draft where half of the chapters are only a paragraph or two long.Still, it had an interesting premise and a nice twist at the end. Alex Cross really needs to adopt the lifestyle of a monk though. Every woman who gets romantically attached to him winds up kidnapped, raped or assaulte [...]

    9. This was my first James Patterson read; I've always seen his books in bookstores and know a little about him as a thriller author, but until now I'd never read any of his books. I realized after I picked up the book that it was late in the Alex Cross series, but after reading it, I can honestly say I didn't need to read the other books in the series to get the story. Even the background information on Alex Cross peppered throughout the book wasn't hard for me to pick up on, assimilate into what [...]

    10. Mary Mary is one of the best James Patterson books I have read so far. This book chronicle the happenings of Alex Cross, an Metro Police Officer turned FBI Detective, as he tries to solve the grisly murders of some of Hollywood's famous. It takes place in Los Angeles, California as his family vacation interrupted and he has to once again balance his family and work life as his upcoming custody trial with his ex-wife Christine begins. James Patterson does a good job illustrating the daily struggl [...]

    11. When Alex Cross goes on vacation to Disneyland, with his kids and his grandma, Nana, who I love, a call to check out a celebrity killing in LA ends up being a big mistake. Between the killer and a past that is haunting him Alex finds himself headed coast to coast. I love the Alex Cross novels and the character development created by an author that knows had to grab the reader and never let them go, always a good thing!

    12. La verdad es que me decepcionó. Creo que sobre todo fue la cuestión del final, pero no quiero ahondar mucho en está reseña. Estoy seguro de que a alguno podría interesarle pero por mi parte no pienso leerlo de nuevo jamás.

    13. Clearly another of Pattersons jewels. It was hard to put down and easy to read. He does such short chapters, that if you need to stop, it is easy to get back to. He writes about gruesome murders and this is no exception, but truly keeps you trying to figure out the who and why.

    14. A few weeks ago I read Franck Thilliez's Syndrome E, and loved it to pieces; it reminded me of Theodore Roszak's Flicker, which is one of my all-time favorite novels. In each case the plot's premise is rooted in moviemaking/cinematic history, and it dawned on me that, if I liked books of this type so much, I should look out a few others. And so, ace researcher me, off to I went to dig out a list of "movie novels."The first result of this was that I then read Marisha Pessi's absolutely splendid [...]

    15. Oh James Patterson, authorial crush of my youth. I thought you could do no wrong!And, for entertainment purposes, he really can't. Patterson consistently hits out best-sellers because he gets the tropes that work and the characters that don't. I admire this. It does, however, makes his booksfamiliar.This one, however, did throw me a curve ball that I didn't remember from reading this in high school. I really like the last 100 pages or so, as they were not what I was expecting. The unfortunate th [...]

    16. Hands down, my least favorite Alex Cross book in the series. To be honest, I only finished it so that I could pick up seamlessly when the next book came out. Didn't hate it, but it bored me a bit.And another thingw that Cross is getting laid a lot, it really gets on my nerves! Patterson makes him sound like a total horndog, along with a goof for some of the things that he says. But, I keep reading.

    17. The 11th book in the Alex Cross series by James Patterson.Dr. Alex Cross is a specialist in forensic psychology, originally working for the Washington DC police department and later as an FBI senior agent. I continue to enjoy the Alex Cross novels which are still currently written by Patterson rather than most of his other books that are written largely by co authors and tend to be hit or miss.

    18. My favorite in this series so far. 5 stars. Mysterious, action packed and it didn't fall into all the clichés that was in every other Alex Cross book so far! What a relief to read a book in this series that broke away from the mold. I hope this series keeps evolving and not become predictable. And, I have to say. WHAT is up with Christine?!?!?!?!?!?!?I can't wait to read more.

    19. Where should I start with this review?! Hmmm let's start with the rating I rated this book 4 starts because though novel was a good read I got a little bored with story. I felt it wasnt really enough action in the beginning which made the story seem to drag. Now what I did love was everytime you thought you were close to figuring out Mary the plot seem to thicken and at one point I truly believe Mary had sometime of multiple personalities because just like Alex I was feeling the vibe that a Man [...]

    20. The first 2/3 of this book is mostly the Alex Cross work life balance crisis. It gets very irritating. The book is uneven and I really don't care about the Alex "Whoa is me, I have to work but don't want to leave my family because they give me crap about it" saga. There are long sections about his custody fight intermixed with quick visits to crime scenes. I think the writers realized they were about out of pages so they crammed the killer search into the last 1/3 of the book.

    21. These books are crazy! I love this series. It's always entertaining and you feel for the characters. Whether it's their work or personal life, you get connected with them. The family life that unfolds in the background of each book gets better and better.

    22. A solid instalment in Patterson's original Alex Cross series that keeps the pages whirring and is an exciting, easy readBack when I was a teenager, I loved reading James Patterson. I'd always enjoyed crime and mystery tales. I'd started with the Hardy Boys, Sherlock Holmes, and Poirot while at primary school (grade school), then continued through intermediate (middle school) - including my first taste of Scandi-crime, the wonderful Agaton Sax adventures of Nils Olof-Franzen. At high school in th [...]

    23. Cody FosterMrs. Baltz Pre-AP English 1012 December 2008Mary Mary by James PattersonIn the world James Patterson has created there is action, a very small bit of romance, and crazy people that suck you in so fast that you’ll be finished with the book and not even know it. The setting is mostly in Washington D.C and is about Alex Cross, a retired cop, who is also know as the dragon slayer because of all the criminals he has put away. He is the main character.There are some very odd characters in [...]

    24. A few flaws, but most will enjoy Patterson's latest Dr. Alex Cross thriller!We're a longtime Patterson reader and definitely prefer his solo-authored series featuring Alex Cross, now a top FBI specialist, to most of his collaborations with other writers in which presumably our famous author doesn't have time to do more than sketch out the plot. "Mary" has the thrills and chills we've come to expect from Patteron's better novels: a compelling plot, where we get to follow the flow of events from b [...]

    25. Loved this. Love that Alex is so rampant!! Feel for him that he is torn between his children and his career. I could love Alex Cross if he were a real person!
