When Patterson then started this new series starting with 1st to die i thought perhaps he might be clutching at straws.
However i was wrong 1st to die is an absolute stunning read from cover to cover i read it within a day i was that hooked on it.
The reason being i was hooked is because it is so fast paced so many twists all the way through the book just keep you hooked on the book.
Recommend it to everyone a truely stunning read.
James Patterson writes about a subject matter which must be hard to research, empathise with and in turn make it horrifyingly believeable. Should this be a start of another series I look forward to the development of the main character, Inspector Lindsay Boxer and her Women's Murder Club.She, like Alex Cross, has more to share with us. So, please James, more and soon!
After reading 1st To Die, I couldn't wait for the next in the series to appear. Once again, a real page turner and oh, how I love that Patterson always does such nice short chapters! Great read.
1st to Die, takes us all away from the grinde of everyday detective work we all learned about in his earlier books, and we are now presented with a new female detective, based in L.A. Who is good at her job investigating murders, is respected by her peers, but has various life issues to deal with that he has never really covered before. We have all enjoyed Alex, as the book sales tell the publisher, and we know that murder is Patterson's favorite subject.But, this time he's different.
The plot is carefully laid out, taking the reader through all the emotions while reading a pacey book, which can't be said about some of his earlier work. I read this book from start to finish, being unwilling to put it down and join in on a resent holiday, but the unpopularity was worth it.
The book is not overly long, with several twists along the way involving all the main characters. In a story which is based on murder, but has been spiced up through sexual acts, which made me cringe as you realised that there had to be some foundation in real life.
Needless to say, there are plenty of ups and downs as the story progressess, around the murder case, the characters lives and the villan in the story. There are several twists and as the book seems to be ending far to early, it really takes off for the final four chapters.
If you have read Patterson before this will compare with his better works. If not, this is a great way to introduce yourself to one of the more realistic murder fiction writers.
From the moment I began reading I was gripped, and I knew that I had to read to the very end that same day to find out who did it!
Although this book is probably not my favourite of his novels, I enjoyed the new characters and the plot kept me going.
The quick chapter writing style of James Patterson is again present, which makes it an easy read, good for train journeys into work.
This was my first introduction to James Patterson and I assume at some point that i'll try another one in the series.
What stops me from rushing back for more at present is the hideous descriptions such as "fiesty lawyer..." and other awkward and unforgetable cliches.
Here is a classic example of how male writers seem to find it more difficult than their female counterparts, to create strong and original characters of the opposite sex.
If it wasn't for the twist at the end and the fact that you can read the book in record timing, thus not waisting too much valuble time, my rating would be far less.
Crime writing of a less serious nature
