Product Description

About the Author

James B. Patterson (born March 22, 1947) is an award-winning American author. Formerly an advertising executive for J. W. Thompson in the early 1990s, Patterson came up with the slogan "Toys R Us Kid". Shortly after his success with Along Came A Spider he retired from the firm and devoted his time to writing. The novels featuring his character, Alex Cross, a black forensic psychologist formerly of the Washington, D.C. Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation, now working as a private psychologist and government consultant, are the most popular books among Patterson readers. James Patterson has been criticized by Stephen King, who called Patterson's books "dopey thrillers".[citation needed] Patterson shrugged off the comments, stating that he wants to be the "thrillingest thriller writer of all time".[citation needed] James Patterson has also been put as one of Forbes magazine's top 100 celebrities.

James Patterson readers who have discovered the author recently, either through the movie Kiss the girls or the lateset smash "Pop Goes the Weasel", would do well to read back copies of the author's early works. This gripping book relives the Concentration Camps of Nazi Germany through the eyes of two young survivors. The suspense moves from the streets of New York to the autumnal splendor of London.Fast paced, full of intrigue, and always suspenseful,"See how they Run" is a must read for any fan of modern crime fiction. This is Patterson at his classic and early best, in the years when Alex Cross was a mere glint in the authors eye.The book takes us to the Moscow Olympics, where a tradgey on the biggest scale is about to be played out in front of a world audience. Can David Strauss help the young Jewish model find peace at last. Read this book at once to find out!

This is a truly awful book.
Most James Patterson books have the following formula - in fact - he's probably patented the software that rights them i.e. short , bite sized chapters, easy to read leaving you always wanting "just one more page" - a bit like fishing really, just one more cast before home for tea...and you eventually arrive home at midnight only to wear the lovely dinner that was waiting for you 3 hours before. This book has all these factors, except the last. As each page unfolds, the drivel gets worse.
They also have an attractive girl who turns out to be a demon. Now in my experience most attractive girls do turn out to be demons but that's besides the point. You never quite know which side the girl is on although more often than not it's the wrong one. And yes we do have the attractive (unbelievably so) girl.
Onece you have the attractive girl, you need the attractive guy to fall in love with her so he can get hurt when she turns bad. And yes, whilst we don't have big cuddly Alex Cross, we do have Mr Very Attractive guy.
The leading couple then have great sex. They DO have great sex. This time in a mountain pond - now, you tell me guys - all the mountain ponds I've been in have been freezing - causing the nether regions to withdraw towards the abdomen. Oh and er yes, the girls always have great breasts - this lady, Alix - is no exception, although after being in the mountain pond they were probably a bit more "pointy" as they were frozen.
They have a plot. Now, whilst I expect fiction to be just that, I do like thrillers to border on reality...y'know, it just might happen. This one, Jews pretending to be neo Nazis killing Jews ... words at this point fail me.
Lastly, you need a few FBI agents. Yes, they are there too.

I'm a great fan of JPs writing - always beautifully written; and most of the time his ability in developing characters are second to none - even the ones that are relatively poor are still gritty enough to ensure that the reader has to finish the book.

However this book is poor. The characters are one dimensional, unbelievable and incredibly superficial. As for the plot - absolute nonsense. Except for writing this review, I have made every effort to forget that I ever picked the book up. Luckily I have read enough James Patterson books to be forgiving.

This is one of the worst books I have ever read, and totally disappointing for an avid James Patterson fan. The storyline was uninspiring and very unbelievable. If you have never read a James Patterson book before, then please do not buy this one - it will put you off for life!!

By SonicQuack VINE VOICE on 9 Sept. 2009
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Patterson's trademark short chapters were still present way back when he wrote this novel. In fact it's that easy to digest format that keeps 'See How They Run' from becoming dull. There's not really much content in this retribution tale and even the grand finale never lives up to the potential. The characters are rather two dimensional and inconsistent too. What's left is a thankfully short tale about an interesting terrorist plot around the 1980 Olympic Village. There's not really much to recommend since Patterson has gone on to produce considerably better work.

This is one of the best books I have read by James Patterson. The storyline is excellent and I could not put it down - I just kept reading (well there are always dishes to be done!).
