My 85 year-old dad's introduction to audiobooks. He's losing his sight and complained that he only likes TV shows he knows well because he can't keep the characters straight in TV shows where he doesn't know their voices. I'm staying with him while my mom's away. We started listening last night and tonight he turned the TV off and asked to listen to the book!

Ruthiella Excellent! There‘s nothing like a good audiobook ! He‘s got a lot of great books he can experience now. 😀 1y
TravelsWithBooks Good choice! I listened to this as well and I loved the narration. Hope your dad continues to listen to other books! 1y
QuietlyLaura I‘m glad your dad found and is enjoying audiobooks! 1y

Didn't enjoy this book. I had to skip so many pages! So many clichés. Disappointed.

Entertaining but nothing profound. Very short chapters makes this 500+ pager a quick read. I was hoping that Bill Clinton's insight could add something unique, but it felt fairly standard for a political thriller.

TheKidUpstairs I think I'd like to read this one. I read a lot of Patterson's Cross books in high school, but haven't read any since. I just hate trying to keep the Patterson shelves straightened at the library 😂😂😂 This one intrigues me, though. 2y

Put this off for ages, but really enjoyed it and the chapters did fly by. It‘s a political thriller and you have to try and guess who is also the treasonous back stabber!
Bit of a preachy presidents speech at the end, bet I can guess who wrote that!

After the first few chapters of meeting all the characters it was very fast paced which is pretty indicative of James Patterson and co authors. It is a great mystery thriller type book with a good twist, very relevant to these times. It is about the POTUS so it does have obvious political things within the plot. With the current climit of the Pandemic and our current economic downturn if you want an escape this is not it.

I've started and stopped this a few times. Mainly because it's the first 500+ page book I've ever read. This was a great read, long winded in spots. But I definitely recommend. Don't be shy.

I definitely expected more from this book. I‘m a huge James Patterson fan but this one just didn‘t do it for me. Maybe because I‘m not a big fan of political issues in books which was obviously a big part of this story. It also dragged a bit for me. Not a bad book by any means but not my favorite. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wow!!! This book was so good, it kept me hooked from the first words to the last. I was so excited to read this book and have wanted to read it since it came out, I am so glad I finally got the chance. This book is a crazy ride and so much happens, just when I thought the problem had been solved there was a twist I did not see coming and it was like that all the way through.

I put off reading this for a long time feeling it was a bit of a gimmick. Now I‘m sorry that I put it off for so long as it was a very enjoyable read. This felt much heavier duty than James Patterson books usually are and some much longer chapters - especially in the first half of the book. You can definitely feel the influence of Bill Clinton and his experience of being President. If you have been putting it off like I have, I would encourage👇

Andrew65 you to read it. #SeperatedbyaPondTour #WashingtonDC (edited) 3y

tpixie Interesting. Patterson used to have some really dark Alex Cross books, but they have become more mainstream. I still read Alex Cross, but I‘ve quit reading anything else he writes. 3y
Andrew65 @tpixie The only other James Patterson books I Read is The Women‘s Murder Club But last few have not been as good (not read 19 Yet). I started the Alex Cross but a key theme in them annoyed me so not continued them. Only read 5 or 6 I think. 3y
tpixie @Andrew65 somewhere the line, maybe 7, I quit reading the women‘s Murder club series. I may have to go back... 3y

My #PoliticalIntrigue prompt! I enjoyed this but not enough to read more from the genre. A computer virus threatens the lives of all Americans while the President tries to put it fires everywhere! An interesting look at what goes on behind the scenes in the White House.

Sooooooo...I didn‘t have high hopes for this because people gave it bad reviews but I liked it. I didn‘t see the end coming. (Largely I find Patterson to be somewhat predictable.) I really want more political thrillers from these two. #books #formerpresidents #america

This one‘s been out for a while so I‘m sure it‘s a known quantity to most people on Litsy. That being said, Patterson knows how to write a good thriller and the first-hand knowledge of the presidency/government Clinton brings to the story makes this one work. And honestly, who doesn‘t like the idea of a president who puts his country & the safety & well-being of its people above everything else?!? An entertaining summer read & a fun escape.

I read this on a whim. Dennis Quaid was the reader and I‘m not a fan of his voice but he actually did a really good job with it. I haven‘t read a thriller in awhile and it was a nice break from what I‘ve been reading. It was a fun book and I wanted to finish it so much that I read the last few chapters in the physical book. I read it for ATY prompt book with a mostly black cover. #ATY2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

Sorry Mr. President but you should stay missing. This book has an overdramatic plot and stereotypical characters. I really tried to like it but found myself trying to stay awake instead.

I‘m not a big fan of audiobooks as I prefer to see the words when I read rather than hear it. Yet this has kept my ears glued to the headphones, especially during my morning jogs.
There were lots of mixed reviews about this book out there but for now I‘m enjoying it very much. Predictable plot though. 😁

Finished. I liked the story and the tension, but maybe it was too heavy on the political side of the storytelling. Which isn‘t surprising given it was co written by a former President. The end felt like his personal speech.

Different from my usual tastes. I‘ve heard it‘s good and wanted to see for myself. #audiobook #librarybook

Somebody needs to tell these two goons they don't need to use italics to show someone else is speaking. President Mary Sue who is war hero (and eveything else hero) with health problems has to disappear in order to stop a computer virus that will potentially destroy the Internet and life as we know it. Maybe I would have preferred it as a holiday read.

Hmm, I get the feeling Mr Clinton wrote the 1st person president stuff. This president can do no wrong. He's about to meet a terrorist but first he has to buy a homeless vet a meal and almost stop a man being arrested.

Listened to the Bolinda audiobook. My first James Patterson. I wasn‘t too enthused, the President was such a combination of Harrison Ford and Martin Sheen my eyes kept metaphorically rolling. Felt like a Clinton manifesto. Also wasn‘t keen on the multiple points of view. Fine to listen to while doing other things but don‘t know if I would have stuck with it if reading the hard copy.

Chelleo Welcome to Litsy! Hope these #Litsytips by @RaimeyGallant http://bit.ly/litsytips and #LitsyHowTo videos: goo.gl/UrCpoU are helpful. There‘s so many fun things to do: book exchanges, buddy reads, photo challenges and more! 4y

The whole cyber terrorism aspect of the book is interesting & good storyline. It had some great bits that reflect today‘s political climate as well. Personally I feel it‘s more political fiction, suspense rather than a thriller. I think if you‘re fan of a spy & mystery novels you‘ll enjoy this book as well.

GripLitGrl @riversong153 I don't typically read much in political fiction or non fiction. It was good enough to keep me reading but just didn't live up to the thriller hype for me. I don't think you're missing out by skipping it. 4y
