Such a scary concept to me. If we haven‘t already reached this possibility, I fear we are not to far off.

I knew this was going to be a good one! I have raced through it and I wish I would have slowed down a little bit. It was fantastic and such a page turner! So much action and drama, I loved it! 😊

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 really enjoyed this book. It took me only a couple of days to finish it. I felt like I had to know why he was missing and who the bad guys really were. It wrapped up nicely in the end too, which is a great plus. Book 3 of #bfcr2

I really wanted to like this book. However, the characters were blah. It gets intense and I liked the ending. The plot was good but not put together well.

A very enjoyable political thriller, I didn't find it hugely suspenseful but I liked the story and the characters enough to fly through it!

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

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. 😁

This was fairly predictable and would have been a pan but it has the cool Bill Clinton factor- THAT doesn't really save it much. #25 #2019

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! 9mo

Nice thriller with some good writing. Kinda like that movie you watch and you didnt expect much but it surprises you.
If the author focused more on the deceased wife, I think it would've brought a lot more depth.

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.

riversong153 So many people have said the same thing. I‘ve heard that it‘s “preachy” and that‘s literally the last thing you think a thriller would be. I skipped this one! 12mo
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. 12mo

I found myself wanting the book to end. Not that it was horrible and lacked merits. The story was decent enough. It just plodded along. 130 chapters? More editing!? This seemed to be a fantasy piece by a former President. Bill Clinton is no Harrison Ford. And listening to the detail physical description of every female. I couldn‘t help but think, “Oh Bill, you old dog”. The narration, with Audible, was pretty bad as well.

Cyberterrorists, traitors, assassination attempts....who to trust? Written with acute knowledge of Presidential protocol, this book hits the mark. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. 5/5 is a rare gift from me....typically reserved for Patterson novels and the way they make me read way past my bedtime.

Heard both speak about this book that they wrote together. With Clinton being a past President you have to believe that this threat in the book had been thought about and the tactics that take place are coming from someone who can rightfully say this could happen and that this is how it could be taken care of. A doomsday book that scares because after reading it you hope it never happens😳😬

Dolly Interesting. A radio interview I heard recently brought to light the insidious use of “us” and “them”. This term was unheard of especially by government officials in the past and now shows and promotes an adversarial relationship. In my view a POTUS should never use this term when talking about Americans. 😢 13mo
Amiable Completely agree, @Dolly 13mo

A little light reading for my morning commute. 😀 I'm not a fan of these types of thrillers, but a coworker gave it to me so I feel obligated to read it. It's okay. The narrative is propelling me forward, so that's something. I guess.

My library hold finally came in. I‘m not really sure how much of this book either of the authors wrote. And you know what, I don‘t care. I love a James Patterson (and perhaps another author help to write the) book. They are a delightful weekend read. #NotAshamedOfJamesPattersonBooks
