My Opinion:
My regular readers know how much I love violence, swearing and gore in books. This book lived up to all my expectations!
Very graphic, right from the beginning!
I do feel like I should get a print copy though, so I can absorb every detail, word, phrase, setting, I loved it that much!
James Patterson is quickly becoming a favorite of mine!


5/5


Recommend? YES!!!

  2. I am a Patterson fan, but I admit that I am partial to the Alex Cross novels :-) I'll have to check this one out though - since you "loved it that much!" :-)

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
