Worst Book I Have Ever Read!,
This review is from: Toys (Paperback)
I am familiar of the author, although I have never read any of his books, but have seen the film 'Kiss the Girls' based on the book of the same name, which I quite enjoyed. All I have heard about James Patterson is that he is one of the world's best thriller authors and has an extremley good reputation so I thought I'd give this one a go.
When it arrived I noticed that on the front cover it had Neil McMahon's name as well, so clearly not written just by James Patterson if he had any input at all. The synopsis sounded fairly good, albeit it I am not one for novels set in the future but it still sounded like it could be quite a good read. But the story itself is just ridiculous. The characters are bland, the plot is all over the place and it feels like it was written by a 10 year old getting excited about writing about robots at primary school.
The only thing that made me get to the end is that I hate to leave a book unfinished.
Avoid at all costs - unless you're aged between 10 and 12!
