The President Is Missing Reviews
I figured that this pairing of writers would be a very good collaboration. This book is touted as a thriller, with page turning excitement. For me it was neither. For me it was just pages and pages and did I say pages of nothing remotely thrilling. I couldn't wait to be finished with it.
I must say I was leery. JP collaborations have been iffy which has stopped me reading his “brand” some years back. But I must admit intrigue and have to give this a shot. After a slow start, a chapter or two in the beginning, I was hooked. At that very early stage, I knew I didn’t want it to end. I was so very fascinated with the tale. The President was my hero and I hope this is a bright beginning to a series. I used to listen to Alex Cross and I felt like this book was JP at his best ...more
Actually good! I’m more surprised than anyone. When I first heard about this book a year ago I thought it was a joke.
It reads like most popular thrillers, and I’m sure Patterson wrote 95% of it, but the added voice of an experienced president shines through. It’s not JUST a thriller, it’s a scenario of what-ifs. The commentary on how a president has to make tough decisions (they elect to avoid the phrase “hard choices”) is the most intriguing part of the book while the conventional edge-of-your ...more
Not brilliant by any means, but a fun read and a real page-turner. I'm guessing that Clinton provided the details on the presidency and characters and Patterson drove the plot, but who knows?
The CIA can relax. Surely, no black felt-tip pens went dry redacting classified material from this manuscript. “The President Is Missing” reveals as many secrets about the U.S. government as “The Pink Panther” reveals about the French government. And yet it provides plenty of insight on the former president’s ego.
The novel opens with the commander in chief, President Duncan, preparing for a House Select Committee. His staff has strongly advised him against testifying. “My opponents really hate m ...more
I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.
Awhile ago, I swore I was done with James Patterson. His mass production of books, the double spacing of pages, and the two page chapters were not for me anymore. Then I saw this collaboration between him and the former president. I entered the giveaway and you can guess the rest of the story.
In this one, a phrase is whispered into the daughter's ear of the president. This phrase means that our country will be set back many ...more
So much better than I expected. My full review will be up on my booktube channel at http://YouTube.com/peterlikesbooks
Perhaps geeks can poke holes into the plot, but personally I found it to be a fast-paced, enjoyable read. Also it serves as a cautionary tale about the vulnerability of our digital world in which many things from infrastructure to government are connected to the internet. It seems pretty scary that our world could easily crumble from cyber-terrorist threats. I enjoyed the ruthless pregnant female assassin character, even though she was villainous. The take-away quote in the last chapter serves a ...more
