Critiques

"The dream team delivers big time...Clinton’s insider secrets and Patterson’s storytelling genius make this the political thriller of the decade." (Lee Child) 

"I felt like I was right along with the characters for the shocking twists and turns you’ll never guess are coming. Patterson and Clinton have created a truly unique character in their ‘missing’ President. The President Is Missing puts the listener inside the White House and inside the mind of a President grappling with extraordinary circumstances." (Dennis Quaid)

"Yes, The President Is Missing is fiction - it’s a thriller - but James Patterson and I have come up with three of the most frightening days in the history of the presidency. And it could really happen...These days, the seemingly impossible can happen. And it happens so fast. I believe that readers will not soon forget President Jonathan Duncan and his story." (Bill Clinton)

what a let down

So un-James Patterson.

I forced myself to listen to the long-winded dribble and by chapter 88 when I picked up the phrase "now slow is slowly" I could not have agreed more. We finally got a bit of motion by chapter 100 or so and when the nail-biting (yeah sure) problem is solved in chapter 112 I sigh with relief that it is close to finishing. Incredible characters

Don't waste your time on this very boring tale. It could be set up and solved in 6 chapters and still not have lost any of the story.

OK story, beyond dreadful narration

The female narrators were actually very good. As was one of the males. But one .... the one playing the voice of the president (Dennis Quaid?) was unbelievably bad. His interpretation of a female voice could only be described as a caricature. On the up side the story was interesting.

Narration by Quaid is just too painful to listen to

Book is good, narration is terrible. Ended up buying it on Kindle, just couldn't make it past chapter 5 on audio :(

A Scary Read

I think this is one of James Patterson’s best. It is scary because it is possible.

This is a new world & we need to create a much better ‘back up’.

A pity their editor lost the blue pencil.

Overblown and full of way too much trivial detail. Do we really need to hear every way a password can be entered for attempt after attempt. The plot is barely believable. The US president turns into a superhero again, but of course has the obligatory flaws. Overall pretty boring. The narration was flat, monotone, and just slow. Maybe, if you really want to try it, try using 1.5 speed.

Sensationaism Well Presented

Loved the sensationalism. Good fiction. The authors capitalize on the current day threat of cyber attacks and convert it into a thrilling story. I won't be surprised if a Hollywood movie is created from this. But after all fiction is a fiction with no messages to take. The performance is absolutely superb.

Enjoyable

I haven't read a James Patterson in a long time, and enjoyed this one, The narrators were really irritating, but I enjoyed Pres Cllinton delivering the speech at the end, nice to hear him again!
The middle was a bit boring and not much happened, but I suppose that is how politics are ... lots of boring parts.
The end was not what I expected at all! Great twist.

Annoying

Arrived at Chapter 9, how I haven’t already returned this.
If I wanted a play I would go to to theatre.
The narrator changing every 2 minutes is beyond annoying, just read the book. I will probably return this and buy on Kindle.

Interesting scenario, execution painful.

The scenario in itself is not bad and pushed me to finish the book. The real purpose of the book is to promote political qualities and to demonstrate how politics have evolved in the US. A good message in addition to an interesting plot. Now the bad news:
1. The plot is overly simplistic even if our reliance on IT and the Internet is scary.
2. The political message is fair and worth communicating. It feels a bit evangelical and maybe naive.
3. The reader is overdoing it. I admire readers, they are real actors and I honor their talent. In this case, Dennis Quaid went a bit over the top and distracted from the book.
All in all, two stars, a little bit harsh on both writer and reader in order to caution future readers that this is not such a great experience.

Spannend, aber etwas zu patriotisch

Um es vorwegzunehmen: Dennis Quaid ist als Vorleser eine echte Entdeckung, er legt sich hier voll ins Zeug und lebt die Story von Anfang bis Ende. Zusammen mit der gut durchdachten Story, die eine vorstellbare Bedrohung schildert, hat Quaid mich an das Hörbuch gefesselt, wie man es nicht allzu oft erlebt.
Gut, manche Sachen nerven. Dass Patterson/Clinton nicht bemüht sind, bei Fremdsprachen zu recherchieren (ihr Versuch am Deutschen ist mehr als peinlich) oder dass blind vorausgesetzt wird, dass jeder (inklusive deutscher oder russischer Politiker oder auch sämtlicher Terroristen) geschliffen Englisch sprechen kann. Das größte Manko des Romans ist aber sicherlich der pathetische Patriotismus, der ständig aufblitzt. Sicher, vom Präsidenten der USA darf man Patriotismus erwarten, aber am Ende entgleist das dann doch, als man in der Ansprache des Staatsoberhaupts alles präsentiert bekommt, was Clinton selbst wohl gerne noch verwirklichen würde. Dieser Präsident Duncan ist dann doch wohl etwas zu arg idealisiert.
Ganz am Ende darf Bill Clinton selbst noch einmal lesen - was das soll, bleibt offen, da er einfach nochmals die bereits zuvor schon von Quaid vorgelesene Abschlussrede vorträgt ... ???
Trotzdem insgesamt ein spannender Hörgenuss, der sicher durch Quaid punktet und den ich in Buchform wahrscheinlich nicht so hätte zelebrieren können. Gerne mehr von Duncan/Quaid!

Good story but at the end overly patriotic

The story is sound but the end is rather weak and somewhat predictable. Still an entertaining, sometimes thrilling book - get it used in the paperback version to save money!

Never heard a worser book from James Patterson

This was like my tenth book of the author and I didn't even recognised it as such. Horrible story, overly patriotic and bad reading. Seems he allowed to much influence from his cowriter.

Political Kitsch

A former President who would have been a hero, if only the crises had been big enough to allow him showing his true nature? oh pulease

A horror listening to the English audio book.

It's the sheer horror of having to listen to Dennis Quaid. How can one hire such an untalented speaker? It's actually not fun to listen to this audiobook in English, though the story is quite interesting.
