Sometimes it's hard to review a book that you can actually read its entirety in two hours. This doesn't make it a poorly written or schemed novel, but nonetheless it loses some sort of worth.

While I did enjoy the story line, it was one quite transparent. The characters weren't too unbelievable and I enjoyed the sentimental thread weaved throughout. There wasn't truly one character you despised.

Obviously James Patterson has a knack for writing chapters no longer than you can reach, but this effectively moves the story along. Perhaps this works rather well for him because his romantic story-lines are simple and slightly obvious, therefore he'd most likely lose a mass of readers if he attempted to arrogantly write 20 page chapters. The books (romantic ones) would just be boring.

Katie You read this already?

Brittany I read it on the plane rides from Rapid to Jacksonville, lol. It's a quick read!!

Katie Yes, it was! All of his books are like to two page chapters and kind of big text!

Brittany LOL exactly. Makes me feel smart though, lol. I was slightly annoyed when I still had 2 hours left to fly sans book and I was squashed next to an obese foreign man who was opposed to deodorant and not opposed to leaking alcohol through his pores.
