eBook à ê James Patterson

In an effort to track and stop the killer before he strikes againThe major subplot Lindsay's facing up to her illness even while she learns to fall in love again carefully compensates for the novel's coarse scenes of brutality Lindsay Boxer is't merely an obsessed cop trailing a maniac she's also a terrified woman confronting the onslaught of disease The story lines balance out to show us the true mettle of someone who puts the safety of others before her ownAgain Patterson's skill for producing furiously paced fiction are evident as the novel breezes by rapidly The short chapters keep the narrative leaping with increasingly taut plot elements but there's an emotional commitment that makes our protagonist even amiable and involving st to Die is a novel that works as an intense series of character portraits that will leave the reader touched and delighted Tom Piccirill I’ve been having trouble concentrating enough to read anything involving thought and effort so mindless mysteriesthrillers are just what the doctor ordered This one though No thanksBy page 45 I decided I hated James Patterson writing women The head of the homicide division and the chief medical examiner of San Francisco are disgusted sickened and “have to turn away” from a body What atrocity can these two strong experienced professional women not handle A body with a single stab wound What Oh but the male detective He’s just fine He even steps in to offer our lead homicide investigator an arm to lean on Seriously You’ve got to be kidding meI found the interactions between the female friends not realistic in the slightest I actually snorted with laughter a few times at how ridiculous and cliché they were Overall I found the writing to be stilted and not especially engaging I can’t say I enjoyed it much at all And I don’t normally notice these things but the man used the word “chilling” so many times that not only did I notice but was really annoyed by it Good writers don’t need to tell their readers how to react to their writing I should find your descriptions “chilling” without being told to over and over and over againAnd my most petty complaint The Women’s Murder Club Four intelligent urbane professionals and that’s the name of their group Couldn’t he have come up with a name that wasn’t so hackneyed and immature It might as well be The Four Females Who Find Killers Club or The Four Awesome Chicks Hunting Bad Guys Club Would a homicide investigator coroner prosecutor and reporter who were male have to create a “club” and name it something so hokey Again I think it goes back to Patterson’s inability to write women with any realism or truth And his desire to create a series and characters that could easily be marketed and turned into a movie andor TV show I enjoy gruesome bloody thrillers but really doubt I can bring myself to skim through the rest of these books based solely on how poorly written I find the charactersETA I just found out that James Patterson earned 50 million from June 2007 to June 2008 No that’s not a typo I’m eual parts horrified and inspired to write something that my biggest fans will excitedly describe as a “uick and easy read”
