Holds you attention
on 14 November 2001
I have to admit James Patterson can certainly hold your attention. His story moved at an excellent pace and had good plotting, at least to start off with. What is annoying though is the use of chapters. He keeps them way too short - how can a chapter possibly be two hundred words, for example? The huge number of chapters, and blank pages in between, led to a very short book. Did anyone else notice this? This book couldn't have been more than 50,000 words.
I have to agree with other readers, the ending is clumsy. The very final part is not bad, but the build up to it is not well handled.
- All in all, a bit of an odd book.
