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 22: by Robby (new)

Robby Coffey i love all his books, i collect them, i am a big fan, i have to carry a list of books i already have because i find myself buying 3 and 4 copies of the same book just because they are his lol


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. Fast reads and the teenagers and some young readers might enjoy them as well. Over all i recommend you give patterson books a try.

message 39: by Tami (new)

Tami I love James Patterson books. I caught up on one year of all the Alex Cross books, now I have to wait ever year for a new one.
I stopped buying them and go to the library as he puts out around 7 a year of other books. Wish I love.


message 40: by Rockdoc (new)

Rockdoc I just read my first James Patterson book: "London Bridges". If this book is any indication of Patterson's writings, this is also my last Patterson book. "London Bridges" can be summarized in a few sentences: Hapless and apparently useless protagonist Dr. Alex Cross fidgets and gets little accomplished if anything in 90% of the book, we know more about his family life than what he is doing to capture the antagonist "Wolf". Summary: Hapless FBI agent flies all over the place, spends time with family, watches his partner be killed; bad guy runs around blowing things up and blackmailing various countries. Hapless FBI agent fails. Use this book to level up that short leg on your desk or don't bother to buy it at all. Pure waste of ink and paper.
