Step on a Crack - Book Review


It sounds like a sin that I had not heard of James Patterson before. A colleague gave me an audio CD of his book “Step on a Crack”. I am not much into audio books, but wanted to try listening to a story while working. A book is meant to be a book, but the audio book comes closer for those stretched for time. I missed some of the portions of the book since I was deep into work. Anyways, that’s much better than not reading itself. Know what? I look forward to work more than before with the added carrots of audio books. 
On to the book itself, it was great. I felt the suspense so much that I picked up the hard copy book from the library and completed this morning – early morning.

A group of terrorists hold a bunch of celebrities as hostage in a cathedral. The protagonist is a negotiator who is called to talk to the terrorists. That’s a one line story line that the authors have narrated beautifully in the novel.  There are certain aspects though that I would have preferred to have been handled differently. The character of Eugena Humphrey was well developed and nothing happened after that. The author also tried to depict how the celebrity hostages changed during the heist, but that did not come out well.

Step on a crack is the first book in the Bennett series. I am looking forward to reading some of other Bennett books as well.
