5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of THE best legal-thrillers you could possibly read 15 novembre 2000
Par Jeff Edwards - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
First off if you have picked up 'Eyes of a Child' and haven't read 'Degree of Guilt' go get it NOW. 'Eyes' is a partial sequel and even though it can stand on its own, it makes more sense if you have first read 'Degree' and besides, you don't want to miss out on another great read, too now do you? Okay with that said, 'Eyes' is FIRST RATE! Not just a legal-thriller, but a fantastic 'Whodunnit' as well. In fact we begin with a murder. Then jump to a cozy vacation with Christopher Paget and his former legal secretary. It is HER husband who get's the axe at the beginning. Does Christopher have anything to do with this murder? Why had he visited the deceased before leaving town quickly? Why did he donate the suit he wore when making this visit suddenly to a used clothing store? He looks more and more guilty as the pages fly, but as usual, things are not always as they seem. I have noticed a pattern with Mr. Patterson's books and that is for him to set the stage in the novel, and then we time travel back to events which happened to either set the stage for the situations we find ourselves in or to just give you an idea of WHY certain characters act the way they do. It is always important to the story, so do NOT let it distract you, it will ALL make sense in the end. Compelling is one word I would use to describe this great story. Although I had the culprit nailed long before the ending came, I wasn't 100% certain until it finally WAS revealed. I turned this one over to my wife and made her a convert to Patterson's books as well. This guy writes better than average legal-thrillers and a supreme step above Grishams stuff in MY opinion, too. If you wanna spend a weekend huddled in a reading room with a novel that will keep you vastly entertained for the entire duration of the book, 'Eyes of a Child' is definitely the prescription you are looking for.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS BY RNP 5 février 2001
Par Moe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
this was my first book by richard north patterson (rnp) which was kind of a mistake. little did i know that there were two books before this one about christopher paget, mary carelli, and teresa peralta. if you havent read "the lasko tangent" or "degree of guilt" read those before you read this one. other then that i really liked this book. its one of those that you just cant put down until you finish it. you might want to read "the final judgement" or the renamed title "caroline masters" after your done with this one. after this book i got into all his other ones which i have really enjoyed. another good ones to read by him are "silent witness" or "dark lady"

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A mystery that is not a whodunit. 10 décembre 2002
Par Warlen Bassham - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
If you have any experience at all reading the whodunit type of mystery story, you will know within the first two chapters who the murderer is in this story. If that's all you care about, you'll be tempted to stop. My advice? DON'T !!!
Eyes of a Child is one of the best mystery novels I have ever read, and I picked it up by accident, thinking it was by another author. Lucky accident! The story is told largely through the eyes of Teresa Peralta, a young hispanic legal assistant in San Francisco, whose husband of six years, Richie, is murdered just before she leaves to go to Venice with her boss and lover, Christopher Paget, a major character carried over from a previous Patterson novel. We know Chris can't possibly be the murderer, because he's the good guy in the previous book, so we're left with only one possible suspect-- so there's no mystery at all about 'whodunit.' In spite of that, the book is a terrific mystery-- not about who, but about how and why.
The 'victim' is a slimeball of major proportions. He's killed in the first few pages. Then, through flashbacks, we're taken through the last few months before his demise. By the time he finally gets what's coming to him, we're ready to go to SanFran and kill him ourselves!
The dramatic insensity picks up when Christopher is arrested and tried for the murder. We know he didn't do it, but his efforts to prove his innocence in the face of many facts that make him look guilty provides the terrific suspense. The outcome is unexpected and exciting.
But I'm missing the main point here: This is no ordinary mystery story, and the plot pales in comparison to some other issues. These are 'real' people. We care about them. We care what happens to them. We want Christopher to 'get off' without revealing to the authorities who the real killer is, because the murderer has done society an immense service and deserves to remain unidentified and free.
Although the adult characters make the plot move, it is a child who is the center of the story-- hence the title. Teresa's daughter is one of the most haunting and sympathetic characters you will ever encounter in literature. What happens to her along the way is far more important in the long run than the more prosaic question of who is 'victim' and who is 'murderer.'
I have only two minor complaints: 1. A couple of the characters easily arrive at insights into their own personalities that no real-life person could similarly achieve, and 2. They are able to articulate these insights more clearly than any similar real person could. In other words, the author puts words in their mouths for them. This damages the illusion of reality in a couple of spots. However, the book's many strengths far outweigh these piddly weaknesses.
A fascinating read. I can't recommend it highly enough.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 the best yet! 9 janvier 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I had never read any kind of thriller until accidentally picking up No Safe Place at a friends house. 5 books later and I am completely hooked. Eyes of a Child, though, had me mesmerised for 2 days. From the whodunnit factor to the court case; it really is impossible to let go. The way Patterson writes about the relationship between Chris and Carlo is particularly touching. I also enjoyed the fact that although you know Chris to be innocent you also know he's hiding something but what? Towards the end I had correctly guessed at the identity of the murderer and the child abuser but it was still a shock when written in front of me. I really felt a gamut of emotions reading this book and was close to tears on many occasions. An absolutely fantastic read!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gripping to say the least. 21 mars 2002
Par Esther Lynn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Once I picked up this book it was impossible to put down. The characters become so real. Patterson makes the characters members of the family. You can't help but feel the pain of the child. The emotions run deep. He makes you hate one person while love another. The research done to make this book so realistic is astonishing. It was truely an education. I can't wait to read more of his work.

A long time ago, I learned the painful truth that you cant look for how you should feel about yourself in the faces of other people. You have to have your own standards, both for how you act and for whom, besides yourself, you should answer to. &quote;

My sessions with Mr. Arias, she said at length, indicated intense self-absorption; a profound lack of empathy for others; a disrespect for social norms and accepted rules of behavior; a tendency to project his own faults on other people; a lack of interest in anyone elses feelings or beliefs; a high degree of dishonesty and manipulation in interpersonal dealings; a distrust of other peoples motives; and, paradoxically, a tendency to see others strictly in terms of his own needs. &quote;
