I’m not one to read books by authors who put out more than two books a year (i.e. James Patterson, Dean Koontz, Stephen King) because they’re often plot-based and low on the intellectual stimulation radar. That being said, I finally read one of this novel-writing powerhouse-writer’s books: Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson.
Why? Because it sounded interesting, many of my middle school students were reading it, and I got a copy of the book for free from the Book Fair.
Conclusion: It was good. Wonderful? No. Fantastic? No. Kept me guessing? Yes. Fast-paced? Yes. Character driven? Kind of.
I recommend reading it if you’re a fan of Kate Brian’s two series Private and Privilege, or if you’re into middle school level books.
