  • The Weasel Just Popped All Over Me

    Mar 11, 2004 by JiggyJay is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Books
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Brings new dimensions to old characters, great story, the ending is a total surprise
    Cons: The Christine Johnson character

    Summary: Pop Goes The Weasel is the fifth book in the series and is the book before the series went a little bit stale. This one remains my favorite simply because of the sure-fire nature of it. The story moves at breakneck pace, the characters are some ... read more

    Pros: kept you reading, good writing
    Cons: way to much detail about stuff you really didn't want to know

    Summary: I really enjoyed this book because of James Pattersons style of writing. It was VERY suspenful but a little predictable, but then aren't most books? I also took a liking to his characters. I found them well developed and full of personality. I could have ... read more

    Pros: Suspense that keeps pages turning effortlessly
    Cons: Not good for people squeamish about sicko violence

    Summary: Let me state up front, I love JP novels. He is the master of suspense in my estimation. Let me say as well, I am one of those people who read slow and often don't attempt paperbacks because I don't have the time. I often listen to books on tape and even ... read more

    Pros: taut and suspenseful
    Cons: imperfect ending

    Summary: I have not read that many suspense titles in my life, especially the past few months. The only reason I picked this book up is that it is available in the airport bookstore and the synopsis in the jacket seemed promising. All I was looking for is a good ... read more

    Pros: exciting, Alex Cross is in it
    Cons: doesn't live up to expectations

    Summary: I loved Alex Cross's first few outings enough to list James Patterson among my favorite authors. I ended up reading most of Mr. Patterson's books and more or less enjoying them, so I was eager to read this one. It wasn't worth the wait. The new killer ... read more

    Pros: Keeps you on the edge of your seat
    Cons: If you've never read any of the other Alex Cross books, things in them may have been given away in this one

    Summary: I have only recently begun to read murder-mystery/detective/serial killer (whatever you want to call them) books, but each one has left me on the edge of my seat. My favorite author so far has been Don Passman and his book, The Visionary. That is, he ... read more

    Pros: Very suspenseful, fast-paced
    Cons: Some same patterns from Kiss the Girl

    Summary: After reading Kiss the Girls by James Patterson, I thought I would try another one of his novels. This book, Pop Goes the Weasel, is another in the series starring forensic psychologist Alex Cross. Returning characters include his sidekick John ... read more

    Pros: Good plot, nice writing
    Cons: Not especially substantial

    Summary: I never considered myself a fan of James Patterson, primarily because I had never before read anything he wrote. After reading this, though, I might seek out further works. This novel follows Detective Alex Cross as he tries to trap a particularly ... read more

    Pros: Usual absorbing entertainment
    Cons: Lack of realistic character development

    Summary: James Patterson has continued his tradition of producing best selling thrillers with his latest work. Unfortunately " continued his tradition" pretty much sums up POP. Like many writers, Mr. Patterson seems to be writing more for the Hollywood ... read more

    Pros: One finds it difficult to put the book down.
    Cons: Do not start this book unless you have time to finish it soon.

    Summary: This is another book in the Alex Cross series. As this is the first I have read, I have no basis for comparison. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. Detective Cross and his family managed to find a very warm spot in my heart. I fully ... read more

    Pros: good story, good characters, consitent
    Cons: too violent for me

    Summary: The first book of James Pattersons that I read was Kiss the Girls. A very good book but a little too gorry for my tastes. So I was a bit reluctant to read this book by him since it had the same lead character. Much to my surprise, it wasn't as ... read more

    Cons: Nothing!!

    Summary: Modified on 6/14/00 I have to admit that while reading this latest book in the Alex Cross series, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not. It had all of the elements that make James Patterson's Alex Cross books winners, but I ... read more

    Pros: Gripping and suspenseful story
    Cons: A couple of dead ends in the plot

    Summary: This is the very first suspense novel that I have ever read, and only did so at my boyfriend's urging. He had read "Kiss the Girls", also by Patterson, and had told me how the novel was so much more gripping than the film. I finally picked ... read more
