    James Patterson novels

    Anyone like JP? I just finished Roses are Red, and I've started Violets are Blue.

    I also read a ton of his books last summer, but can't seem to remember a lot of titles.

    I like his writing, it's very suspenseful. Sometimes (like in Roses are Red), I figure out who the killer is near the beginning, but usually he has me till the end. I don't find them repetitive either.

    Anyone else have thoughts?

    And on a side note, I'm so glad it only took me 8 months to discover the FORT had a book thread :rolleyes
    ugh. I don't get time to watch TV anymore, much less hang out at the FORT.

    But don't you worry, I'll be back in full force on or about November 3rd.

    I've read Kiss the Girls and Along Came A Spider. Both were awesome books; the movies sucked in comparison. (Of course, they always do.)

    I have read everyone of Jp's books. My favorite is Jester. It is totally different from his normal type of writing, but it is such a great book and you will really get into it.
    Check it out

    I'm getting there budsvtec. I usually grab a couple each time I'm at the mall, and if I'm at home on a weekend, I read by the pool. With the warm weather lately, I've read 2 books since Sunday!

    I don't think I've read Jester. Maybe I'll try that one next.

    I didn't know that these movies were adapted from books. I'll read them definitely because I enjoyed the movies.

    I've read Beach House.. the fact that it was so easy to read kind of turned me off to him. Are his other books deeper?

    I started out liking his books but I guess I got too much of a good thing. I don't need to be told every two pages how much Alex Cross loves his kids and Nana Mama.

    I've never read Beach House, but from what I hear it's not one of his best.

    I've read about 10 of his books, they are all fairly similar...... quick, easy, and entertaining is how I'd describe the majority of them.

    It's strange, "The Lake house" is the only book I've ever read by James Patterson and it wasn't what I thought it would be at all. I picked it up at the library thinking it would be a mystery. Boy was I wrong! That's the only book I've ever read by him, and I was very disappointed. Doesn't he mainly write mysteries? Was this an anomaly?
