Talk about Eclipse

There are parts of the story that are real page turners, hard to put down until you uncover the answers. After a slow start to the book, for me, the story unfolds in a way that had me questioning how much I know about current events around the world. Interwoven in the story is a tender love story about commitment, redemption, and the consequences of our choices.

This is an exiting novel picking up the present economical/political issue. The author being inspired by the real tragic events in Nigeria, when the American oil companies temporarily set back from the development in that area. I never imagined it "had become inextricably entangled in a nightmare of our creation that we lacked the power to end," though "I believe the world is the sum of who's in it - that in some way what we do makes other lives better, or worse." Facing with scarceness of oil and global blame to the oil companies for their excess consumption, American oil companies are shifting their operational base to Africa again. Would like to join Damon Pierce in enjoin the American oil companies from participating in killing freedom of African people by closely checking up-to-date events there. Exile

Because I've read quite a few books by this author and have liked them , I kept trying to like this one. I read about 1/3 and decided it wasn't going to get better . So I just quit.

I remember discovering Richard North Patterson, back in the "Degree of Guilt" and "Final Judgment" days. He started to slip with "Conviction," which was more about the death penalty and the system than about telling a story. "Exile" was more about telling the sides of the Israeli/ Palestinian conflict than about telling a story (plus it suffered from a frighteningly simplistic predictability in the alleged plot-twist; if you hadn't figured it out 150 pages earlier, you weren't paying attention!).

"Exile" seems to be more of the same (plus his editors have started to join the decline into incompetence that currently afflicts the rest of the publishing industry; just too many typos, inconsistencies, factual errors and badly-worded phrases). And who the hell let Mr. Patterson give not one, not two, but THREE major characters similar last names starting with "O?" I realize he wants to be "authentic," and that many African names start with "O," but there are many that do not. No one would publish a novel with major characters named Murphy, Murphree and Mumford (unless the similarity was germane to the plot), so why do the same with African names?

I used to say that current American novelists could be divided into two groups: Richard North Patterson and everybody else. I will give him one more try after this, but if he puts out another novel that fails to tell a good story while preaching about the evils of something Mr. Patterson hates, I'm done.

I'm very pleased with the audio book. It's a great addition to my own audio library. I'm disabled, & can't make it to my town library anymore. So, I have been using Amazon to build my own library with the audio's I want at a good price. I love this author. The CD's are clean & play great. I would order from this seller again, & also recommend the seller to family & friends.

Thank You Very Much:

JUST DO IT
Wow, I was excited to start reading Eclipse and once I started I had a hard time putting it down. Patterson did a great job depicting the feelings of the characters in this novel and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Patterson did not disappoint in this page turner of a novel and I am looking forward to more from him! Made me want to go purchase an alternative fuel vehicle!
There are plenty of people from the "have" countries" who want to exploit Africa. Unfortunately Africa is full of "strong men" who only too keen to sell out their people and environments to these exploiters. This book strikes a cord with Africans who yearn and strive to break this age old cycle which goes back to the slave trade.
