The President Is Missing Reviews
Dude named David Ellis actually wrote this book and it reads like Patterson and Clinton threw a dump truck fulla ideas at the dude and told him to try his damnedest to include everything, even the most boring parts, about impeachment and presidency and government, and fuck you I'm done. 14% into this mundane shit-spackled politics-porn and not shit has happened, aside from some sexy assassin bouncing boobily out of an airport.
There's a thinnly-veiled impeachment plot where Clinton's blowjob sca ...more
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
I am so disappointed in this book. I love James Patterson and all his books are always a fast read. I bought this book when it came out on Monday and today it's Thursday and I am only on page 14 the beginning of chapter 2 because I keep finding things I could do instead of reading this book, like cleaning the toilet. The first chapter is so boring that I keep having to re-read it because I have already forgotten what was written. Funny thing is that I even skipped to the middle of the book and r ...more
This book is written from the point of view of the US president who believes that a terrorist attack is about to occur. He goes missing and assumes a disguise to carry out a secret mission to save America. (Nothing implausible there.) He is also dealing with a blood disorder, the threat of impeachment and a traitor in the White House. At least two of those plot lines were superfluous. There is a lot of boring political maneuvering, especially at the beginning of this book. Some chapters are also ...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?
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.
The Patterson trademark is to sink his fangs into the reader in Chapter 1 or 2 at the latest and continue pumping in suspense/thriller venom until the reader has stayed up all night to finish the book. That’s not the case in The President is Missing. The beginning chapters drag and it’s not until Chapters 14 or 15 that I’m at least hooked enough not to put the book down and the story starts to pickup that more familiar Pattersonian rhythm.
Clinton can clearly write, not unexpectedly he’s just no ...more
fast food reading fodder. thrilling, not filling.
