Beth's Reviews > Bloody Valentine
I don't know what's wrong with me given that he's so popular, but I happen to think James Patterson is a terrible writer. The characters (especially here) were so wooden. Zee felt like some kind of wish-fulfilment because she was nothing but a pile of subservient female cliches. Jack was extremely wooden and unsympathetic. I felt nothing for the characters except mild irritation; their 'perfect' life just annoyed me. There was no fleshing out of any of the characters which made the red herrings random and disjointed, and although I didn't see the twist coming, the killer's reason for doing what s/he did was completely out of nothing and ridiculous. Given that the heart thing was essentially the 'hook', I didn't understand why it essentially had nothing to do with the plot.
