Présentation de l'éditeur

“Gross is a top-notch thriller writer.”
Chicago Sun-Times

“Andrew Gross knows how to make your skin crawl. Eyes Wide Open should be read with the door shut and the lights on; a truly terrifying descent into evil.”
—Nelson DeMille

New York Times bestselling author Andrew Gross solidifies his position as one of today’s very best suspense authors with Eyes Wide Open. Joining his previous bestsellers The Blue Zone, The Dark Tide, Don’t Look Twice, and Reckless, Eyes Wide Open is another brilliant example of the contemporary thriller done absolutely right. In this relentlessly exciting page-turner, a man must investigate a shattering personal tragedy that is somehow connected with a charismatic cult leader from the ‘60s. James Patterson, Harlan Coben, David Baldacci, John Grisham, Jonathan Kellerman, Jeffery Deaver, Lisa Gardner, Nelson DeMille, Tess Gerritsen—Andrew Gross stands tall in their elite company.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not That Eye Opening 6 juillet 2011
Par Susan K. Schoonover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I decided to read the new thriller EYES WIDE OPEN in large part because a lot of the action takes place in Morro Bay, California. I have fond memories of this central coast town from an LA to San Francisco trip on the Pacific Coast Highway taken quite a few years ago. After receiving the book I discovered the central death in the book was "inspired" by the suicide of the author's nephew who jumped from Morro Bay Rock in a similar manner as the victim in this novel. I was further surprised to discover that a lot of the plot of this fictional book involves a murderous hippie clan quite obviously modeled on the group that committed some of California's most infamous murders in the late 1960's.

EYES WIDE OPEN is a quick read with many short chapters that often end with a cliffhanger. Some of the chapters are told in first person by the protagonist of the book, Jay, a suburban New York surgeon who has come west to help his bereaved brother and sister-in-law. The other chapters are told from the viewpoint and memories of various other characters. The first third of the book is the most interesting and the best written as both the writing and plotting goes down from there to the point that the climax and aftermath of the plot became quite a chore to finish. The author does return to better form with a chilling epilogue that seems to promise a sequel. The book is OK as a beach or plane read but there are so many other books out there that are more worthy of a reader's time.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Eyes wide open all night 10 mai 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
My eyes were open almost all night as I read this in nearly one sitting. This is a face-paced thriller that steadily weaves a thrilling tale and draws you in each step of the way. Dr. Erlich has an aging hippy brother whose son has just mysteriously died--and no one is sure if it is a suicide or homicide. The doc goes out to console the shaken brother, Charlie, and is drawn into more than he ever expected. The police, mental health hospital, murders in other areas, the doc's own past, and a "Manson family" like group that Charlie knew from his hippie days are all woven into the mix. Ominous clues are found by the doc, who refuses to give up his search for the truth, to his own risk.

There is a psychological dimension to many of the characters, including the deceased boy, Charlie, the brother's father, and the "Manson family" like members from the past that add to the tension in this thriller. There is so much dysfunction that you know there has to be trouble somewhere. The author does a fine job of tying it all together and bringing the book to its climax. The writing style is similar to the author's work with James Patterson--there is a cliff hanger in nearly every chapter that keeps things moving right along.

Get this book if you want your eyes wide open until you have the chance to finish it, because you won't be able to put it down.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Title is Talking about the READER 1 mai 2011
Par Eileen Granfors - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Andrew Gross's thriller, "Eyes Wide Open," is a swiftly read though twisted of a family looking for answers to their son's suicide. The big question is did Evan really jump off a cliff into the Pacific, or was he pushed?

When his successful Uncle Jay comes from the East Coast to try to help his brother (Evan's father), his presence is at first welcomed and then shunned. Charlie has had enough of his brother trying to "save" him. But Charlie cannot seem to cope on his own with his mental issues, drug issues, and wandering lifestyle. His son, the dead Evan, also had been diagnosed as bipolar.

Why can't Jay leave well enough alone and let the cops/coroner do their jobs?

Suffice it to say that Jay can't just walk away, and as he delves further into the mystery, more people die, huge secrets emerge, and the reader definitely has EYES WIDE OPEN.

I'm not a fan of James Patterson with whom Gross has co-authored some titles, but on his own, Gross writes with skill. I'm adding his other works to my "TBR" list!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Where have I read this before? 3 juillet 2011
Par tom4416 - Publié sur Amazon.com

If you've ever read the infamous book Helter Skelter, then you've already read 3/4's of this book. It was a badly disguised ripoff of the Charles Manson murders used as a storyline for a not particularly good mystery. It seemed like the theme of the book kept getting reiterated by the author, not sure if he thought the reader would be suffering from short term memory loss or what.

In the author's notes in the afterword, Gross mentions that he's never written a book like this before and that it is based loosely on a real life personal tragedy that affected his family. Perhaps he shouldn't attempt to stray from the genre in which he has become successful because this novel simply didn't work for me. Had it not been part of the Vine program with some obligation to finish it and write a review, I probably would not have completed the book.
