This was a good entertaining read. I enjoyed the story for what it was and I found it gave slight insight into presidential protocols.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Obviously written by Patterson and perhaps Clinton gave some insight on the Whitehouse protocols. Really made me think about the possibility of nationwide shutdown through the internet. Will recommend for book club

Am down 200 pages and its sooo boring. Nothing going on enough to push me forward to read.

It was too hard to continue reading this book.

The reason for the zero stars - what an awful book to read. I read maybe 30 pages and then felt I should burn it!. James Patterson should have let President Clinton do his own stuff on this book. Good grief.

The plot is too contrived and the President is too alone-trusting no one and unable to delegate even a tiny bit to subordinates. Lonely at the top way overdone and the sermon at the end was likely the only part written by the ex-President

This book started slow and finished preachy. I have always ejoyed Patterson in the past, even though I don't like his politics. Patterson always has a liberal bent; but this book is full of propaganda, especially the end. In short this book has too many pages, too much propaganda, and not enough plot.

This is my first Patterson book so I have nothing to compare it to. Because he co-authored it with Bill Clinton it is also difficult to judge. It is obvious former President Clinton contributed several elements only a president would know about, giving the book plausibility. I enjoyed reading this book and like several other critics, I read it rather quickly despite the 500 pages. I found it well written and devoid of long, often useless descriptions found in many novels. The authors keep us guessing throughout.

I had a hard time getting into this book but halfway through I wanted to know how it ended. It is quite relevant to what could happen today and how crippled we would be it there was a cyber attack. The speech at the end of the book given by the president is well worth the read.

I found the 1st half of the book dull and the other half exciting...cyberterrorism is pretty prevalent these days...spies and espionage not my thing

Excellent! By far the best thing Patterson has ever written. The President’s speech to Congress at the end is solid gold.

This book has to go down as one of my favorites of all time. It had me fully engaged from the very page. I could not put it down until I was done. The book was interesting because it was filled with political and philosophical dilemmas throughout. It made the reader think. It was a perfect blend of action, philosophy and politics.
