Kim-Lost-In-A-Book I've never read a Patterson book so I don't think I'm qualified to vote on this :-)


message 2: by Heather (new)

Heather I don't care for Patterson's writing so I don't read his books. Sorry.


message 3: by Ginny (new)

Ginny I find that James Patterson has a number of different styles, I do not like his Alex Cross books, the few I read were to graphic. Kiss the Girls made me stop reading him altogether for quite some time. Then I read Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, which was very good, but my favorite has to be Beach Road for the final twist.


message 4: by Cindy (new)

Cindy I've only read a couple of the Patterson's novels. I listened to the first in his Women's Murder Club and enjoyed it and would like to read more in that series. I also started reading Alex Cross but got too busy to continue.


message 5: by Tammy (new)

Tammy Only one I've read on this list is 1st to die.


message 6: by Angela (new)

Angela I can't comment on this one, I haven't read any of Patterson's books.


message 7: by Patricia (new)

Patricia The only books of James Patterson I've read so far are The Women's Murder Club series. I plan to start his Alex Cross books when I'm done with those.


message 8: by KrisT (new)

KrisT I have read just about everything of his but the very newest. They are quick and exciting reads...true escapism!


message 9: by Sherree (new)

Sherree I have read most of James Patterson's books, with the exceptions of the newest ones and the Maximum Ride series. I really like the Cross books for the most part, and ditto for the Women's Murder Club series. I run hot and cold with his books that aren't part of the series. Some of them I like, and some I don't.


message 10: by Samantha (new)

Samantha I don't read Patterson at all so I can't comment on what's the best.


message 11: by Debby (new)

Debby Of all the books in the poll, I've only read 1st to Die. So, I don't feel I can really have a Favorite. From the comments, I've found a few titles to put on my TBR.


message 12: by Kathy (new)

Kathy Sorry, I've only read Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas. Loved it, but that doesn't necessarily make that #1.


message 13: by Sam (new)

Sam haven't read any . . .guess it's time to start cracking. LOL.


message 14: by Leslie (new)

Leslie I have read all of the Women's Murder Club, some of the Alex Cross, and a few of his stand-alones over the years.
It seems like my likes and dislikes change often-today my fav of his is The Quickie.




message 15: by Jenn (new)

Jenn ive onlt read the maximum ride books...


message 16: by Jenny (new)

Jenny I read all his Women's Murder Club and really liked them. Right now I am onto his the 9th Judgment. Maybe I had too much expectation on this latest book, as I had waited for this book for some years, the book does not seem to as fast read as the previous 8 books... well, hope the speed picks up from the next half of the book..


message 17: by Cathy (new)

Cathy Denney James Patterson is my favorite author...most of his books are the best.

message 23: by Carlene (new)

Carlene Hinderlie Never really been into reading books before. Started reading James Patterson's, Women's Murder Club #1 and was hooked! Love reading this series of books so much! Almost done with the 10th Anniversary then onto #11. Can't wait to read more of his books!
keep up the great writing.


message 24: by Sherry (new)

Sherry Howard i have read almost all of pattersons books and i can say other than the profanity it some of them he is a great suspense writer. I expecially enjoyed the maximmum series novels.
