Not a great book.

The read was pretty easy although I personally felt there were some topics that didn’t get enough attention. But all in all it was good enough to receive an average rating.

Not one of his best. Teen book maybe?

Hmmm, interesting start and then POW right in the kisser! Mr Patterson, you could have assisted the (co-)author by concluding this project 350 pages sooner!

This book is not ADULT fiction and should be cataloged under JUVENILE fiction. Basically it's about two teenagers, one of which has been made into a bionic boy, who save the world against a devious, controlling supercomputer. Definitely juvenile. Pretty much an anticlimactic ending which would be fine for a teenager but not an adult.

I will give this ZERO stars for an adult and 5 stars for a kid.

very any-climatic! and VERY disappointing reading. it tries to build and build then completely fizzles at the end.

When I started reading this I wasn't sure how I would like it when it kept switching from person to person. Yes, it may be geared for teens, since they are the main characters in the book, but I enjoyed it regardless.

The book was pretty well James Paterson like. But the ending was terrible. I love most all of James but his co-writers are something to be desired. So as an adult reading this book, I felt like it was another beginning to his Maximum Ride series.

Not sure why I finished this book, but I did. Believe that it was geared for young adults as the narrators of the story were two high school students. No the best I have ever read by Patterson, but possibly because was not the intended audience.

To be honest, i did not finish James Patterson & Robison Wells' THE WARNING. This was not about not liking the writing style or about the story line per se. For those interested in artificial intelligence, (somewhat) post-apocalyptic settings, conspiracy stuff, and stories set it the future, I wouldn't be surprised if you found it interesting. But none of those are generally in my wheel-house. Enough said.
