I just couldn't get into it. It was way too slow and boring. I wouldn't recommend this book.

I'm a HUGE fan of James Patterson, but this book is one he should not have co-written with. It is just one you can skip!

How did this get published? Seems like it could have been written by a 3rd grader. I have read most of Patterson's books - but do not waste time on this one.

This one criss cross was so terrible I can't believe I finished it. Not worthy of Patterson! I have read almost all of his books, but never again!

Completed the book and was happy to move along... Appreciate James Patterson opening doors for aspiring authors.

A new co-author for Patterson and very disappointing. It felt as if this book was meant for newer readers, maybe between 25 to 35 with short attention spans.

Short sentences, an abundance of internal dialogue and ineffective placement of cursing ("shit" several times on one page) which didn't match the character he was creating.

Writers at the Patterson level should be able to give us better character descriptions through dialogue and thoughts. The characters felt superficial and I really didn't care what happened to them.

I didn't finish this book but will give Born one more try on The River Murders.

(By the way, the comment below seems to belong to a different book).

James Patterson & James O. Born have put together a great story in LOST. Fun and engaging read. It focuses on human trafficking. It has more of an emotional impact than a lot of Patterson stories, as it presents the trafficking problem in pretty raw terms from the victims perspective and their reactions as they more through the "system." Definitely worth the time to read, both as a good crime story and also because it addresses a very real current issue.

The Lost was a perfect conclusion to the witch and wizard series! With tons of plot twists, I never got bored reading this book! Beginning with the continuing problems of Whit and Wisty from the previous novel, their whole world flips upside down when new enemies rise up and the powers of witches and wizards are questioned again. The re-occurring problem with the “normal” public of the city rejecting the powers of witches and wizards doesn’t get old, because James Patterson manages to change it slightly every time! One problem I have with Wisty and Whit’s parents is their useless-ness in the plots of the story. Although, I haven’t read the previous installments of the series in a while, and that might be able to explain why they aren’t helping as much.
In my opinion, I think the title “The Lost” was a very good name for the book. The losses that occur in this book contribute greatly to the decisions Whit and Wisty make. This leads me to believe that James Patterson could not have thought of a better title.
You immediately get brought into the book when Whit is faced with a problem I never thought would occur around 10 pages into the book. And from there, the relationship between Whit and Wisty in concern with their powers, and decision-making skills, actually begins to pull them apart in the middle of the book. But in the end, like the other novels, Whit and Wisty come together to face the most powerful foe they have ever faced, and the ending... is shocking.
