    How in the world is he a best selling author His characters are shallow, his writing is mediocre, and when he writes about romance it feels mechanical and formulaic This book had a twist at the end, but it was the worst sort of twist the kind that you can t really predict because he probably didn t think to add it until after the book was already written leaving out any traces of foreshadowing I haven t read any of his other books and don t plan to now When you have as little time for leisure reading as I do, you waste as little time as possible reading crap.Also, he uses to...

    Am I the only one that thinks that Women s Murder Club sounds not only hokey but juvenile and begging mockery The story a psycho serial killer begins murdering newly married couples 4 women, each with their own stake in cracking the case, are determined to nail the killer, and so band together outside of official channels to pool their resources and figure it all out There is a red herring if one could call it that and a vaguely surprising twist at the end, but I read this with an unusual level of detachment and disinterest, and so was not impressed by anything.I just wasn t hugely impressed with this book Patterson s handling of the female characters and their relationships with each other were stilted, forced, and lacked nuance from beginning to end I get the impression that Patterson does not truly grasp how women operate, and how their relationships d...

    This is my first Patterson experience The book was quite captivating and enthralling.There are half a million detective serial killer novels out there Patterson s are by far near if not at the top of the list His chapters are so brisk you ll find your self half way through the book before you know it As well, the suspense is so well paced, and he also tosses in so many possibilities and clues to murderer s identity into the mix, there s no way you ll be able to set the book down until you have reached the finale In addition to top notch suspense, Patterson gives deep insight into the minds of our four heroine s, we know their dark secrets , and sympathize with them especially Linday with the rare blood disorder, an original sub plot therefore we truly care about what happens to them And as you a...

    I tend to read Patterson s books when I don t want my brain to work that hard 1st to Die fits that bill perfectly I loved the concept of a group of extraordinary females including a detective, a lawyer, and a journalist working together to solve crimes It was an easy to read, page...

    While I greatly enjoyed this and the next 2 books in the Women s Murder Club series, I was unable to continue reading the series with the same enjoyment due to comments that Patterson himself made in regards to it He basically said that they were crap, that he just wrote them because he knew that they would sell, and he basically made me feel as if by reading them, and enjoying them, he was belittling me I know it...

    My impulse as I read 1st to Die was to start editing Overwriting, reduncancy, and sentimentality took the place of plot structure, character development, and freshness Each of the four women was described in terms of her profession and ethnic background sassy Black woman medical examiner with a faithful musician husband, sleek, sophisticated put upon woman DA who gets no respect from her male superiors, perky newspaper reporter whose risk taking allows her to get the scoops that seasoned newspaper people are afraid to go after, and, of course, our dep...

    I was curious about this series because it s obviously very popular, but I can t say I m terribly impressed by it First of all, the sappy you go girl female characters didn t seem very true to life to me Patterson seems to think that name checking Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos, plus a lot of hugging and randomly saying I love you, girl , means he has created believable female characters N...

    I ve been having trouble concentrating enough to read anything involving thought and effort so mindless mysteries thrillers are just what the doctor ordered This one, though No thanks.By 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 me.I found the interactions between the female friends not realistic in the slightest I actually snorted with laughter a few times at how ridiculous and clich 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...

    The first James Patterson book I ever read, and one of the best I read this year It has exceeded my expectations Honestly I didn t know serial killer novels could be this fun It s filled with suspense and thrill, and Just when you thought you ve seen the last of the twists, another one jumps at you in the final p...
