I've been trying to not think of the Alex Cross series as going downhill, as I have read many people believe, but this latest instalment (to my reading list) is showing to prove the theory.
While I can't really fault the book for being a page turner (a James Patterson speciality) it did seem that there were chapters for chapters sake. There was quite a pattern of 2/3 pages chapters, many of which lead right on from each other.
I'd love for this series to go back to the days of the first 7-10 books, but I'm not sure if it's going to happen.
We shall just have to see what Mr. P throws at us next in "I, Alex Cross"
