I have only ever read one of James Patterson’s books. It was okay, I’ve read better. To be fair though, I’ve never read his earlier work, and hence don’t have the right to judge. I don’t like to continually read books by the same author because they start to sound similar after a while. Variety, is the spice of life, as they say. As an unpublished author I will stick clear of ghost writers in the future. A new voice is always refreshing. Thanks for writing your opinion, it was interesting.
