    I am a big James Patterson fan I had to check the cover of this book several times to confirm I was in fact reading James Patterson I can say it s his worst book I ever read, but that seems odd, because I ve never felt there were any other bad booksThis was bad Disjointed I felt like there were huge gaps, missing parts I have given it no stars.

    The nice thing about every Patterson book I ve read so far is that they are quick reads thanks to the short chapters In See How They Run I was particularly grateful that the chapters were short and I was able to get it through it fast because it just wasn t very good Some decent characters that I found myself interested in but the story itself just felt like a complete mess It s one of Patterson s very early books though so I m not going to judge his talents based on this dud.

  3. Katie Katie says:

    I had a really hard time getting into this book I just read it to finish it because I was already halfway through it It was not like any of Patterson s other books that I had read and I could definitely tell it was from his early years The first disappointing book by Patterson that I ve read.

  4. Brett Tompkins Brett Tompkins says:

    This book was dreadfully boring If I wasn t a completist, I would have stopped reading this one very soon after starting It was all I could do to get through it There were a couple twists, but the first one didn t even dawn on me until about 10 pages later because it was so dull The exciting part at the end wasn t even that exciting No biggie though With as many books as Patterson has put out over the years, they can t all be great And as always, I was able to read through it quick beca This book was dreadfully boring If I wasn t a completist, I would have stopped reading this one very soon after starting It was all I could do to get through it There were a couple twists, but the first one didn t even dawn on me until about 10 pages later because it was so dull The exciting part at the end wasn t even that exciting No biggie though With as many books as Patterson has put out over the years, they can t all be great And as always, I was able to read through it quick because the chapters are so short, which I like

    This started out as one of the most promising James Patterson novels to date, mostly because it feels so atypical from the rest of his body of work I don t know how muchof his formulaic serial killer stuff I can take SEE HOW THEY RUN was originally published back in 1979, when Patterson was still finding himself as a writer and experimenting with various styles It is obvious that by writing this particular novel, he was hoping to pass himself off as the next Robert Ludlum Even the bo This started out as one of the most promising James Patterson novels to date, mostly because it feels so atypical from the rest of his body of work I don t know how muchof his formulaic serial killer stuff I can take SEE HOW THEY RUN was originally published back in 1979, when Patterson was still finding himself as a writer and experimenting with various styles It is obvious that by writing this particular novel, he was hoping to pass himself off as the next Robert Ludlum Even the book s original title, THE JERICHO COMMANDMENT which was insipidly renamed to fit in with Patterson s typical nursery rhyme schema is as Ludlum esque as you can get.There are a couple of reasons why SEE HOW THEY RUN is ultimately a big disappointment First, Patterson gives his lead characters very little to do, apart from flirt with each other and commiserate on past traumas And nobody writes flirty dialog as poorly as James Patterson Anytime he tries to be cute or touchingly romantic, the book practically bursts into flames All the interesting stuff is done by faceless characters in the background characters who never get properly developed and who feel interchangeable The plot drags so badly during the book s middle section that no amount of fireworks at the end can redeem it.The second problem is Patterson s terrible dialog, which makes his characters sound phony and dumb He also tries for the occasional awkward literary description, which, in Patterson s case, typically consists of total gibberish masquerading as artistic flair.As hard as I am on this book, however, it does have its good points The basic story concept is solid, if rather farfetched, and Patterson obviously did a large amount of research in putting it together By cutting out much of the middle section and editing down the cringe worthy dialog, SEE HOW THEY RUN could be fashioned into a great little novella

    He writes In fragments so it was hard to find the flow of his thoughts and plot It was good enough for me to read the whole thing.

    An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind GhandiThis is a definite departure for Patterson and his Cross detective fare his characters feel the same, but the situation is much harder hitting, in some ways Having not been born by the time of any of the events in this book, I think that they were less horrifying or enveloping to me than they perhaps could have been to someone who can recall what actually happened, but they were nevertheless powerful The best part of the book, I think, in An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind GhandiThis is a definite departure for Patterson and his Cross detective fare his characters feel the same, but the situation is much harder hitting, in some ways Having not been born by the time of any of the events in this book, I think that they were less horrifying or enveloping to me than they perhaps could have been to someone who can recall what actually happened, but they were nevertheless powerful The best part of the book, I think, in terms of the most impact and attention grabbing insanity, is chapter 24 I won t tell you what it is, as the shock of it is half the point, but I stopped reading at that point to feel the suckerpunch of it that was Patterson s pinnacle in this book
