    • This book has made me reconsider a lot of things in my life.First of all, it has made me look at all of the other books that I have given a one-star rating too. Yeah, The Shack was bad, but was it THIS bad? It has also made me think of how many people might be out there reading books like this, or any other books which appear to have been written as a sixth-grade writing assignment, and live to turn the pages and get wrapped up in the action. It makes me immeasurably sorry for them. It has also [...]


    • Kill Me If You Can is a fast paced action thriller which leaves little time for the reader to catch their breath. Each scene is a near shot of adrenaline as authors Patterson and Marshall tell a deep and engrossing story encompassing assassins, art students, blood diamonds, and the Russian Mafia. The accidental hero is Matthew Bannon, an art student who stumbles upon millions of dollars worth of diamonds at Grand Central Station. His easy conformance to the poor, struggling art student stereotyp [...]


    • My second of Patterson's reads. Well i will start this review by saying that he is rapidly becoming one of my top 5 favorite authors of all time! I love his style of writing and the fact that he has what i like to call 'quick chapters' just a little over 100 in this short read. In this Patterson tale that is also co-written by Marshall Karp, the story starts with a hitman doing battle with his quarry in the public washroom of Grand Central Station in New York. This fight ensues as the hitman who [...]


    • This book is filled with every cliche I could possibly think of - Russian mobsters, "oo-rah" Marine buddies, cougar professor girlfriends, German "ice-queen" former model turned assassin, crooked cops, you name it. The descriptions of sex between Matthew and his professor girlfriend were gratuitous and cliched as well.(And entirely unnecessary to the plot.) Most of the dialogue is cliched, as well. There is a major plot twist halfway through the book, and the story starts to get better then, but [...]


    • Matthew Bannon is a poor art student living in New York who finds s bag of diamonds after a man, known as Walter Zelvas is murdered in a vicious battle. Zelvas stole the diamonds from the Russian mob. They hired a contract killer, simply known as the Ghost to kill Zelvas. Bannon is in love with a woman named Kathrine who reciprocates his love. After finding the diamonds he decides to take her on a trip to Paris. Unbeknownst to Bannon, the mob has hired the Ghost to retrieve the diamonds at any c [...]


    • I've noticed lately that the books I read by James Patterson are either hit or miss. Sometimes I will love them and recommend them to everyone I meet and other times they will make me wish I could get those hours of my life back. This book started off okay, but it just became more and more absurd the further I read on. I had lost count of all the cliches in it by midpoint. It was corny and the plot line wasn't intriguing. I was not invested in any of the characters and quickly grew tired of how [...]



    • Kill Me If You Can by James PattersonMy rating: 1 of 5 starsIt has been rumored among the more unfeeling of my "friends" that Jesse is a cynical man. "Jesse," they say, "is a bloke" (I give all of my friends British accents so I don't feel badly for hating them); "Jesse," they say, "is a bloke who, when confronted with a beautiful, short, single, Calvinistic paedobaptist redhead with a flurry of freckles on her cheeks and a copy of Chesterton in her hands, assumes that she'll either turn out to [...]


    • Not my favorite Patterson book. It was a little heavier on the sex than I'd like, and the (consensual) incestuous relationship of the bad guy and his daughter really wasn't a necessary or enjoyable part of the plot. I'm convinced Patterson acts as mostly just a consultant on most of these books he supposedly co-writes, and I don't think I'd want to read any more by Marshall Karp. The plot was interesting, but I found myself reminded of a recent movie plot and a less-recent movie plot when it cam [...]



    • We took this 8 hour audio book on a long trip in the car. It was very engaging and an interesting story line. We didn't realize that it is also part of a series/serial. Though the main story line is concluded, it is left open at the end for a continuation. We listened to an unabridged version of the book. There are graphic action/murder scenes (blood, gore, and the like) and some sexual talk; so this is not a book that should be listened to when there are younger people present. The main charact [...]



    • The book started off well and was well on course for a four star review. Yeah the plot wasn't the strongest ever written and the characters were the cudboard cutouts that appear in most Patterson stand alone thrillers. The incest sub-plot was completely unnecesary but didn't bother me to the extent that it made reading the rest of the story any less enjoyable. But the book was moving along at a nice pace and the plot whilst surreal was a vast improvement on the last piece of Patterson drivvle I [...]


    • For those of you who know me I have often said of James Patterson in recent years, "Why am I still reading this crap? It is just the same storyline with different character names." That said, I would like to award all five of these stars to Marshall Karp who made this book the fantastic read that it is!This story opens up with Matthew Bannon who, depending on how you look at it, is either really lucky or really unlucky. One day when returning home from classes at Parsons Art School he comes acro [...]


    • Matthew Bannon was a poor art student, albeit 30 years of age. He had been a Marine for 4 years, to satisfy his father, but now he was able to paint, as he had wanted to do as long as he could remember. He met Katherine at an art gallery, and as she was an art teacher, his future was set. The fact that they fell in love as well, was an added bonus!But suddenly Matthew was in the wrong place at the wrong timeor was it the right place at the right time? When a chaotic attack, which was construed a [...]

    • It is hard to imagine a more unlikely scenario, but that doesn't interfere with the pleasure of reading this book. James Patterson is not necessarily known for probable and logical plots. The book opens with a gangland-style murder in Grand Central Station, an assassin, tear gas bombs, mass chaos, and a young art student, Matthew Brannon, who just happens upon the dying target trying to claw his way into a locker. A locker with a bag filled with diamonds. Stolen diamonds, as it were. Matthew dec [...]


    • When Patterson teams up with a new (to his collection) author, I never know what I am going to get. Sometimes you end up with a great thriller, yet other times it is a literary cookie cutter with some of the typical faux-thriller ingredients; manipulative main character, damsel in distress, killer chasing main character, missing item, and eventual death. In this book, Patterson paints the picture of a starving art student who stumbles on a murder and ends up finding a bag of diamonds. Chase ensu [...]


    • This is the first James Patterson book I'd ever picked up, and my first thought was how insubstantial it was. It was almost like reading air. I had over 300 pages left in the book when I picked it up last night -- and three hours later I was done with it. That's over 100 pages an hour, and I wasn't speed reading. It breezed by so quickly that I missed the big plot twist in the story, which left me annoyed with myself for not seeing it coming.Other than that, it was a good -- albeit quick -- read [...]


    • A guilty pleasure of mine, James Patterson never lets me down. A good, entertaining read that rattles along at a fast enough pace, so that it doesn't feel boring at any time. The "twist" in this I honestly did not see coming. At all.The chapters are short and the font is large, so before I knew it I'd read 100 pages or more.I do recommend this. It's very good, pure escapism and wholly entertaining.


    • Interesting concept & it's delivered but with too much sex. (I don't need a manual, thanks!) I usually like the author but my fast-forward is getting a workout lately. Well narrated. It didn't take that long to read - just got busy doing important things.


    • Another action packed read from James Patterson. The story moved at a quick pace, filled with suspense and a twist that shocked me. The only thing I could have done without was the incestuous relationship between two of the characters. Fortunately, it was not mentioned too often.




    • one of Patterson's best works! like you got lost watching a crazy action film, has you at the edge of your seat. literally.


    • WOW!!! Lots of twists and turns. Ends like there may be another. Loved it. Finished in two days. Wish I was not done.


    • Where do I start? This book literally grabbed me from the get go, and as cliche as it sounds, I couldn't put it down. This is the first Patterson book I've read, and it'll be the first of many. So, if you're thinking about reading this book you'll be pleasantly surprised. My one and only criticism is that I'll never experience reading this book for the first time again. I think this is what they call a book hangover?


    • I like it . I like it oh did I said I like it I really like it e story pace damn is so fast and I have hard to let it go first book for James Patterson and I like it .e story hmm eventhough its sort of similar like movies but I like the plot I mean I really do I don't think there will be part 2 but if there will be I want to read it nah am not gonna tell what the story about *toing* *toing* man it's like I have full adrenaline
