A Great Read

Virgin Although somewhat of a departure for Patterson fans this is one of the more intriguing books I have read in awhile. The plot is simple for someone not of a Catholic background but a complicated one for those with an understanding of the the workings of the church. As always Patterson did his homework on this one.

Everything in one book!

This is the second book I read by James Patterson. The first book I read was Kiss the Girls, and I was interested in some more of his works, so I read this after discovering I had it for about 2 years and it had been missing. I can't recommend it enough! This book has a little comedy, drama, mystery, action, suspense, and it is based on events in the Bible. This book taught me about the Blessed Virgin Mary. The book couldn't have a more surprising ending, and when I finished it, I wanted to read it again. I last read this book during June, so I have to do this book from memory. That's the best thing; I can remember all of the events from beginning to end, that's how memorable this book is. Anyway, on to the overview of the book and the final judgement. The book is about a nun who joined the police force and gets a call from her friend Cardinal Rooney. There is apparently a plague that is going around the world. Meanwhile, there are two virgin births on opposite sides of the world. One in the U.S and one in Ireland. Kathleen Beaver is seventeen years old, Colleen Galagher is fourteen years old. I won't ruin any surprise twists here, because 1)it would ruin the book, and 2)there are too many surprises. I was so shocked, which adds to the lasting factor and the memorable factor. I would highly recommend this book to anyone 18 and over because of the strong sexual content and language. I am 12, and this book was a little strange to me, it even grossed me out a little, so I think you should be at least 18.

Incredible Novel

Cradle and All is the best novel I've read in a long while. It had me guessing all the way and the ending just shocked me. I thought this was a well written and wonderfully suspenseful Christian thriller. Loved it!

The best of them all!!!!

This had to be one of the best book's James Patterson has writen. Hey if you love the Alex Cross charater, then you might not like this book. I like it on that fact! Yes, this book isn't the "brick" size of "When the wind blows" or "Cat and mouse", but even though, it is a smaller size book, it really is good. Also, the fact that this book is one of the hardest book's to find, ANYWHERE, also makes it mysterious. Virgin really is worth of 5 out o 5 stars!! Also, i read ealier in the year that they were going to re-copy it, and make more cpoies of it, then they comeout with "Craddle and All". Boo. I was surprised that Alex Cross wasn't in it. But if you liked Thomas Berryman Number, then you will like Virgin! TRUST ME!

typical Patterson once again

When I first purchased CRADLE AND ALL, I was dissapointed that it was not an Alex Cross book. I thought that perhaps it would be like HIDE and SEEK which I did not care for at all. I am not really into a lot of the religious beliefs that are discussed in this book,but I was surprised that I enjoyed this book so much. Very scary and bone chilling and almost nightmarish. I read it very quickly and was sorry to have it end, A must read by all means!
