I just haven’t had good luck with James Patterson lately! Some of his stuff has been great, while others just make my head hurt. This was one of those books. I got to chapter 6 (which, for a JP book, is like halfway through chapter 1 in a normal person book, because his chapters are pretty short). After that I couldn’t take it anymore. Oh the sappiness. The main character was really eccentric, which normally would make me love him! But he was just a little too… overly-attached and dramatic. Granted his idol just fell to her death and he’s grieving, but it was written in a way that made me wince. Sadly this one will not be finished. It will instead be donated to my local library where hopefully someone else will enjoy it.
