    1. The second in this series about Michael Bennett, a detective whose wife has sadly died and has left him with ten yes ten children So a rather unusual setting for a crime novel but it works At least it does for me In this story the murderer is unusual too as in the sheer number of murderous events Our hero holds it together while all of his family are falling around him with flu, and the murders become very personal Of course the sequence of events, culminating in a crazy finale, are quite nonsen [...]

    2. I was not as drawn into this installment as I was the first book I will continue the series but this book was only ok in my opinion It just did not grab me like book one The characters were still great and the ending hints to the next book having a good plot My quick and simple overall not bad but just okay in my opinion.

    6. With James Patterson s co written novels, it is sometimes hit or miss This one, for me was the latter This is the second in the Mike Bennett series I have not read the first one Mike is a detective, formerly with the feds, a widower with ten adopted children When several affluent people are murdered, Mike is hand picked to work on the case The killer is killing like a vigilante He has a score to settle, and is very clever Mike also has to deal with a reporter that withholds evidence, the press, [...]

    7. A really unrealistic novel.There is a new killer on the loose who calls himself the Teacher He wants to right the wrong doings of those who have offended him Michael is on the case to find the killer, as well as battling the flu on the home front I like Patterson s novels in that they are quick, easy reads with a fairly good mystery I just couldn t get over the unrealistic aspect of Michael being the lead on a high profile case, well also being a single dad of his 10 kids, who of course are all [...]

    8. Fantastic gripping book, page by page Although having read all of Patterson s books featuring Nypd supercop Michael Bennett, I d have to say Run For Your Life was the best of the lot Also have to note if their was one book that they should make a major motion picture of, it would have to be this one as well After the outcome of the crimes of the first book in this series Step On A Crack were said and done it didn t mean that Nypd cop Mike Bennett could simply live life with his brood of a family [...]

    9. The scariest part of this book was imagining I was Mary Catherine stuck in a household with ten children who have the flu The Teacher is a killer out to teach the world some manners Michael Bennett, father to the ten children, is the New York detective charged with capturing this guy who is not so randomly shooting people, tho the killer does a lot of other random things In the beginning of the book, The Teacher gets into his car, starts the engine and, while waiting for the engine to warm, pull [...]

    10. I was 24 pages in before I decided I had much better things to do with my life than read this I couldnt stand the style of writing i felt like I was reading something with too simple of sentences Maybe its just against the kind of style I like, but I honestly felt like this was horrible writing and I just couldn t wait it out long enough to see if the plot went anywhere interesting.

    11. This book was just like every other James Patterson book All ten thousand of them I had the audio book in my car and was stuck on a long car ride with nothing to listen to so it served a purpose but the overall experience was on the low end of mediocre at best I ll be okay if I never read another one of his books You read one you ve read them all I hate that he doesn t even write half of the books with his name on them anyjust sells the name so it will give the books credibility and in all fairn [...]

    12. If there s anyone out there who was looking for a good thriller, the book you ve been looking for is Run for Your Life by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge This book is the sequel to Step on a Crack, but you ll have no trouble understanding even if you haven t read the first one This was one of those books that have nonstop action on every page Mike Bennett, a detective who works for the New York Police Department, must track down a deadly killer, who calls himself the Teacher and is on a mis [...]

    13. All in all I really did enjoy this book and found it an easy read It is the first James Patterson book that I have read and it has led me to go out and buy many This title from what I can tell is the second in the Detective Michael Bennett series, but without reading the first I had no problems understanding any of the storyline The book made me personally want to keep reading to find out not only the detectives next move in response to the crimes being committed, but also to keep reading about [...]

    14. Mike Bennett, NYPD homicide detective, is facing the worst nightmare of his life His children are all sick, and he can t even stay home to take care of them, because a maniac calling himself The Teacher is running around Manhattan killing the rich, the snobbish and the rude It would appear that nobody in the upper circles can count themselves safe, but what Mike really wants to know is how the victims are chosen Is it just a random sampling Or are they all connected somehow When the killer final [...]

    15. Well, Patterson has a new hero in the form of Mike Bennet, NYPD.Wonder what he s like If you re a follower of Patterson s books, you ll probably guess that Bennet1 Is single or a widower2 Has children and a small select group of important family and friends.3 Has many skills including negotiating and profiling In fact, he s pretty darn good at anything that comes his way.4 He s handsome and any woman s idea of a good catch supposedly.Oh no, forgive me The above seems to be a description of Patte [...]

    16. Standard JPat Action packed story about a cop tracking a serial killer This time it is a cop with a dead wife and 10 kids who are all sick while he is tracking a guy who is trying to teach the world a lesson but really just getting revenge for a long lost brother.The weird thing about this is the prologue involves some guy getting shot by an unknown sniper, and then the last scene has riots because of it, but they never really deal with it I assume that will be covered in the 3rd Michael Bennett [...]

    17. Ok, so I am a huge James Patterson and I love his stuff but he has really gone downhill lately I was in two minds whether or not to bother with his latest novel.I have been really disappointed with the latest Alex Cross novels and I am left confused by his latest character Michael Bennett Is this not just the same character I could not separate the two There are differences in the number of children they have etc but basically they are the same person.The story follows Michael Bennett as he take [...]

    19. I just started reading James Patterson again after taking a break from the Alex Cross series years I think I ve found a great replacement in Michael Bennett Run for your life is the second installment in this series and it keeps getting better Our hero is very likable, his personal life is realistic even with ten kids He s a cop with a heart that hasn t totally been jaded yet What makes these books interesting is the fact they are told from the POV of the villain and the hero The only problem I [...]

    20. Book Run for your LifeAuthor James Patterson Throughout the book there is treachery, death, and murder To briefly summarize the book it is about a tired, widowed cop who is trying to get by day after day with work and his family when he is called on a special case to track a slick murderer, The Teacher The teacher is a handsome, well groomed man who wishes to rid New York of its rude and arrogant population I think a mask is a good symbol for the book due to the fact that a mask covers up your i [...]

    21. Why I decided to read this book I ve known for some time that the author James Patterson has thrilling books so I searched around the library for this particular author and eventually found this book which was worth the looking.This book fits under my Your Own Choice section of my bingo board since it has no other genres that it would fit into.The categories it would ve gone into are crime,adventure,mystery,thriller which i didn t have in my bingo board.My favourite quote from the book is He was [...]

    22. When I read Step on a Crack, the first novel featuring Michael Bennett, I did not know it was the start of a new series Michael Bennett is a character that is easy to like He s a dedicated police detective, but sometimes fantasizes about a career change He s determined to make the streets of NYC safe At the end of the day, Detective Bennett wants to be a great dad to his ten children Having just lost his wife to cancer, Mike tries to pick up the pieces and move on while dealing with his grief He [...]

    23. This is most definitely an action packed drama that holds one s attention to the max I appreciated the home scenes with the 10 children the detective has, and all the issues that go with having a family of that size What made the home scenes so real and draws the reader in full empathy mode is the flu bug having hit the household as well Poor guy is chasing his tail trying to figure out who is doing all the killings, and then comes home to his kids being seriously ill besides He tries to give hi [...]

    24. I read this book for our diet office book club at my work I am not really a fan of James Patterson s writing, but he can tell an okay story I would almost give this novel a 2.5 5 I shouldn t have admitted to my co worker that I can identify with the murderer She gave me the strangest look I couldn t really connect with Bennett I didn t believe that he loved his children It seemed like he was just going through the motions And, even if Bennett inherited a multi million dollar apartment, would he [...]

    25. I gave this book two stars because, while I thought the actual plot was pretty good, it didn t really live up to my expectations The characters were a little too mundane, in my opinion Having said that, it wasn t necessarily bad, but it really wasn t good either, so for me it was about average The one thing I did like is the plot twist near the end I kind of saw it coming, but it was still pretty good The story is told from the homicide detective s point of view as well as the murderer, which I [...]

This is the second Michael Bennett book Detective Bennett is on the trail of a murderer known as The Teacher who is out to teach the rich people of New York to mind their manners If the don t they die In the meantime, Michael Bennett is fighting a flu epidemic at home with his ten children It tells you this on the back cover, so no spoiling things here.My feeling about the flu situation was a bit mixed at the start There are only so many ways you can handle projectile vomiting, but after a while [...]

    27. Eh After Step On A Crack, I was hopeful that the Michael Bennett series would continue with a knock out sequel It was not to be The criminal in this story lacked depth of character and wasn t even remotely interesting It was painful at times to read through his portions of the book And while the character of Michael Bennett, is one of Patterson s best by far, Patterson almost ruined it by pulling a cliched move of having Bennett hook up with the nanny he hired after his wife s death He didn t, b [...]

    28. I made a vow one book ago to give J.P a break for a while I broke that vow and now I am sorry I again make this vowHe just writes too many books Sure they are easy reads but he doesn t develop anything any He just counts on us knowing the characters and plops them down in very familiar situations I noticed that all of the chapters in this book are just a few pages long with lots of blank space mixed in I realized that this is really about 1 2 to 3 4 of a book that just got pumped out quickly The [...]
