most of his books have short chapters. and i really do mean short. the Jester has chapters that are only 2 pages long! but there are over 100 chapters lol. he keeps to the action, doesnt spend too much time describing the bushes over on the other side of the building that dont help the story anyway. in otherwords hes not Tolkien or Goodkind. lol i like his stuff.

Patterson is so boring! i read When the Wind Blows and half way through the book and i quit. then later i continued from where i left off and i realized thats when all the action started. Took half the book to get interesting. Then i read the teen novels Maximum Ride, and those are okay, but again, its boring for a while!

i have jester, just havent read it yet. As well as a whole bunch of those number series, like 1st degree (or whatever yous aid...)

i liked first to die. however, its about a group of women crime fighters. lol however, you need to read the Jester. its about the crusades. a bit of a catholic overtone really. artifacts and such. but its a strong story. that is my favorite book of his.

I used to read Patterson.  I liked Along Came a Spider quite a lot, also Kiss the Girls.  I hated the ending of Roses Are Red, though.  I think after a while, he got so into having multiple killers and trying to trick the reader that it got nearly impossible to figure out what was going on.

Useless Fact:  I saw JP on a TV interview once.  The interviewer was reading him quotes from his novels, and he was supposed to guess which ones they came from.  He guessed Mary,Mary for every single one.  He didn't get any right.
