Postcard Killers Reviews
Das ist ein gutes, spannendes Hörbuch. Hat meinem Freund und mir wirklich gut gefallen. Haben es im Urlaub zusammen gehört.
Sehr spannend ! Lässt sich gut lesen man legt es nicht mehr aus der Hand super Autor jederzeit wieder! !!
So richtig ekelhaft was da passiert. Sehr nachvollziehbar die Verzweiflung der Ermittler an einer Verwaltung die Logik nicht kennt und schwerfällig die Erkenntnisse der Detektive boykottiert. Insgesamt gut.
James Patterson has ONCE AGAIN sucked me in! This is one of his books that is not in the Women's Murder Club, Maxium Ride, or Alex Cross series. I was hesitant to pick it up, because even though I have enjoyed his non-series books, I have found that they are not nearly as good as his series. I've been reading JP for many, many, years starting back when I first picked up a random book called "Kiss the Girls."But, this book has so many twists and turns. Just when you think you know what's going to happen, BAM, it changes and throws you for a complete loop. I highly recommend all of James Patterson's writings!
James Patterson's latest thriller has him teamed up with a bestselling author from overseas, Swedish writer Liza Marklund. It's about two attractive killers who persuade young travelling couples to go back to their hotels and then they kill them. Before this happens they send a postcard to the press to let them know what is going to happen and then afterwards they send the same unfortunate reporter a photograph of the killing. On the case is Jacob Kanon, a cop from the US whose daughter was murdered by these Postcard Killers a few months before. He teams up with Swedish reporter Dessie Larsson who received the postcard for the latest killing.Like the previous reviewer stated, this is like a book of two halves - the first being extremely tense and fast-paced whereas the second was dragged out, slow and felt a bit like the story was continuing for the sake of it. This is a shame as it was a fantastic first 200 pages or so and I read them in just one sitting. The next 200 pages however took me 3 days as I found it hard to get back into the story and it really failed to grip me.The characters are actually ok. Jacob is heartbroken by the death of his daughter and struggles with working with the Swedish police and their different ways of following the law and Dessie is thrown out of her comfort zone, being normally a reporter on bulglaries but now stuck in the middle of one of Europe's biggest murder cases. The killers are quite annoying, being a little too unrealistic for my liking. Knowing who they are from the opening chapter also takes away the surprise element of revealing them at the end as you already know who they are.I think this book is ok - it's not great but it's not bad either. I'd maybe wait and pick this up from the library or borrow it from a friend rather than purchase it as I can't imagine it would be one you'd ever have any desire to read again but is worth a read once if there's nothing better for you to read on your shelf.
Well the first 3/4 of the book was great fast paced and kept me on edge. Then like a race car that gambled on not taking a pitstop and finishing the race it started to slow down and conserve some gas and then it died short of the finish line. I have noticed this trend recently with the James Patterson books that he is coauthoring with other authors. I hope the trend does not continue because I do enjoy reading his books but another piece of junk like You've Been Warned and I am going stop reading them. You want an author that will give you your monies worth check out J.A. Konrath. His Jacqueline Daniels AKA Jack Daniels Female Chicago Detective is as good if not better than any other Detective series out. His serial killers and villians are in a league of their own. So instead of wasting money on this download the Whisky Sour the first book in the series and save some money and enjoy a good book.
Lightweight and small in size, ideal for taking on a trip. Mistery and suspense from page 1.Although it is true that the story's characters and the nature of the crimes are not believable, I find that a good thing.Because the crimes are so graphic and disturbing, I rather not be impressed with utterly realistic scenarios or beliavable characters to the point where I would start thinking that any of it could actually really happen.For the sake of intretaintment but without the discomfort of a possible link to reality, this book strikes the perfect balance between probability and fiction.The chapters are short and open ended, making you want to know what happends next.Couldn't put it down.
Really liked this book. The story was very well set up and the characters interesting and easy to care about. Once you begin you have to finish it. The pace is thrilling and the back and forth between the murders happening and the fighting agaisnt the clock to get them get one on the edge. I really liked that the characters had a background that made them likeable and werent only circunstancial to the story. I recommend it.
