'You've Been Warned' is James Patterson's 5th book that he has released in 2007 and this time he has had a go at the supernatual thriller genre for a change, teaming up with Howard Roughan.

The story begins when hopeful photographer, Kristin Burns is a nanny for the Turnbull family and is also having an affair with the husband of the family. Kristin then begins getting shocking and terrifying nightmares everyday and weird things start happening all around her, including seeing people who have been dead for a while. This then sets Kristin on an investigation into what the dreams mean and find out the truth behind these strange sightings, by using her trusty camera.

This book has it's good and it's bad points. First the good - it's fast-paced and quite exciting and you'll find yourself flying through this book in no time at all. The characters are pretty good and the mystery will keep you hooked and thinking the whole way through. The main bad point is that the ending is pretty rubbish and very predictable and will leave you feeling a bit disappointed once you've finished it.

Overall it is a fairly decent read that is full of twists and excitement, as you'd normally expect from a Patterson novel. The downside is that if you're after a good Patterson novel, it's not as good as his Alex Cross or Women's Murder Club series. And if you're after a good supernatural thriller you're better off reading a Stephen King, Dean Koontz or a David Ambrose. If you're after a quick, easy and enjoyable read - give it a go. If you're after a deep, involving and memorable book - look elsewhere.

As usual James Patterson writes another cracker. I think sometimes the sheer volume of his work can be a downside but this book was excellent. He changed from the usual thriller/serial killer effort to the more unusual. The story is focused on Kristin Burns life and the strange warning she receives. This book was so unlike his normal writing I was suprised to find that I still thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a real page turner and although the ending was slightly predictable it didnt remove the excitement from this book. The book has the ability to make you start questioning things yourself and manages to grip you from the very beginning. Highly recommended.

This book was something of a departure from the James Patterson I knew - I had read five of his Alex Cross books, which I think are superb, and When the Wind Blows - which was alright but not as good as the Cross ones, I think this is the least favourite of all of his books I have read.

I started and finished it today in my commute to and from University so there, as others have mentioned, is a plus in that its a quick read - Patterson sticks to his style of short chapters which cleverly keep you wanting more and allow you to read short snippets whenever you like.

However the plot of the novel seemed to be all over the place, at parts it was engrossing and descriptive, evocative of the Cross series, but in general it just seemed like a clumsy effort that was crying out to be made into a film or something similar. The end was a disappointment and the conclusions predictable, a distinctly average offering from a usually good and reliable author.

Until this comes out in paperback for a couple of quid you're better off saving your money or spending it on a couple of Cross novels instead.

If there had been something on the cover to indicate that it's a supernatural novel I wouldn't have wasted my time.
I engaged with the heroine and enjoyed the twists in the plot, expecting the kind of resolution that one gets from a James Patterson novel. As I look for plausibility in a novel I wouldn't have bothered with this one. I don't get supernatural, so avoid books like this.
