Review: The Noise by James Patterson & J. D. Barker

I was kindly given an ARC of this novel by netgalley in exchange for a fair review.

I have to confess I haven’t actually read many James Patterson books, shocking I know, so I was not sure what to expect. The description of the book hooked me in and I have to say for the most part I was not disappointed. The general premise of the book is fantastic and both James Patterson’s and J.D. Barker’s writing style is fantastic. That said I found a few things that did ‘let it down’ in my opinion.

The use of character subheadings for chapters seemed to be a little redundant for the story. Since none of the book is in first person perspective. Sometimes I found myself forgetting whose chapter it was because the characters were at the same location. I was also worried for the dog but that was resolved and brought the score up to a solid 5!

All in all the book was extremely good, the plot was well thought out and believable throughout even with the science fiction elements. I will certainly look into more works by both authors although I am aware this is somewhat different to Patterson’s normal style. I would recommend for any sci-fi fan who is looking for a bit of realism with their sci-fi.
