much the way it rules when you are in the mood to channel surf and you happen upon a special presentation of some crappy lawyer drama from the late 90's and you go "sweet...there goes the next two hours...brain? off."
I couldn't help cracking up at James Patterson's writing. So many shout-outs! He is so hip and now! Williamsburg junkies in vintage sneakers! Parties at Steven Spielberg's house! Sudden, random and completely out of place raunchy sex stuff!
All in all it's a ...more
I love this story!!! It was so much fun! Kate Castillo is a fantastic here heroin. Together she and Tom make a great team.
A lot of people marked this book down but I have to say that I found it completely entertaining. I enjoyed the twists, turns and the mystery along the way. The setting was fabulous and the world building was fun. I never saw the ending coming!
As far as Literature goes this is a little more remedial than other books that I come across however I was completely engaged and enter ...more
The main character’s demise won me over that I was rooting for him all the way. The slow but very climatic unfolding of his becoming a zero to hero was nicely done in my opinion. The author made sure you were going to fall for Tom that you’re not going to think one single bad thought about the guy. He was some kind of a dream-come-true guy that’s why the ending was (view spoiler)[such a stab in my oh-so-fragile heart.
I pity Kate the m ...more
In this book Patterson brings up the issue of race and corrupt city officials.
The whole time, I found myself rooting for Dante and siding with Tom and Kate the whole time. All of the characters were likable.

First, what I did like. The chapters are short - very short (2-3 pages) - making this a very quick and easy read. I felt like I was flying through the book. This is an easy weekend or beach read.
What I didn't like. Each chapter was written from a different character's point of view (POV) with some consecutive chapters written from the same character's POV. I found myself quite often having to f ...more
Each chapter is told from the perspective of a different character which get a bit messy because you lost track of who is speaking now and sometimes you have to go back to check. Like I said, it takes little time get to the en ...more
In most of his novels, I can sense what the ending will be, but I was blown away by the twists in it. If you have not read Beach Road by James Patterson, you need to stop what you are doing, and get a copy now!
Unlike the first book set in this part of the country (The Beach House), this one was more of a legal type thriller and it was more believable. Revisiting some of the quirky characters from The Beach House was nice. I loved how the story was written in first person from many different characters points of view. It really allowed me, as the reader, to completely understand ...more
This is set in an affluent neighbourhood in the Hamptons, where 3 white guys are shot dead and a young black basketball player is accused of the crime. The two lawyers who agree to defend him were once lovers. But more murders follow and the town is split by the violence.
First off, writing style - annoyingly chipper.
