Reviews of Along Came a Spider (1992)
Review by tanogra (2009-02-25)
I was gripped instantly the first page I read of this novel. I have read some of the latter Alex Cross series so I knew what to expect. What I didn't expect was this author was in his prime writing days. He never failed to amaze me in any way possible, with each page-gripping twist and turn. An excellent book, a Two Thumbs up, and Two More thumbs up if i had more hands!

How on earth did this book rate a 7.3? It's terrible. Everything is predictable, characters formulaic, relationships contrived, dialogue stilted, and plot dull.
My grandmother gave me this book, and if I didn't feel inclined to read it to be appreciative I never would have finished it.
