It's been a long time since I have read a James Patterson. The reason being is that I used to look forward to his books but found I got bored with them. Alex Cross I can well leave alone. The reason I read this one is that the girls at work recommended it.
When I was growing up I read a lot of Nancy Drew. Tandy for me is a modern day Nancy running around trying to solve her parents murder. This is not a bad thing. The book I found just ok, nothing grabbed me to go and read book two. Nothing in this book has inspired me either to rush out and read more James Patterson. This does not reflect on how respected he is.
I have enjoyed many JP in the past and for his die hard fans this book will be a must. For me it just had no oomph, although it is a teenager book. The book was for me just ok, although I did enjoy Tandy,s narrative.
The children have been raised on a strict regimen of reward and punishment to become overachievers with no overt show of emotion, all sociopaths according to Tandy. She is an academic, Harry a virtuoso pianist, Hugo a miniature superstrong battleship and the oldest brother Matthew a top Pro-Footballer for the New York Giants. Tandy believes she can, and must, solve the mystery of her parents' death and is better suited than the police. (She has studied criminology and homicide as well as being a multilinguist who is researching the effects of radiation on the Pacific!). As the narrator, she addresses the reader at the beginning of some chapters with frivolous remarks such as 'Dear reader, we're just getting to know each other', 'be patient', 'it'll be worth the wait', 'please don't think I'm completely full of myself' and so on. These can be irksome. The family, Samantha, Uncle Peter and neighbours are suspects. Tandy has memory lapses and is even unsure of her own actions. There seems to be little love for their parents and motives for the deaths from within and outside the family circle are plentiful. There is plenty of theorising if a tad short on action.Read more ›
The narrative is over long, terribly wordy and, dare I say it, totally tedious and utterly boring. Quite how Patterson and Paetro came up with this rubbish is beyond me.
I see there are more in the 'Confessions' series. Not for me there aren't!
