My ThoughtsGreen swirlsIncredibly disappointing!  There is only one more book left and it had better be an epic ending to an epic series but if it’s anything like this installment, then I’ll be sorely disappointed… AGAIN!

I don’t even know where to begin nor do I feel like wasting my time blabbering on about how much I disliked this book.  I barely got through it and James Patterson’s books are usually so incredibly easy to read with his style and short chapters, but this was painful.  It took me months to get through it and the only reason I finally finished it is because the finale is out and I want to read it and I can’t until this one was done.

I’ve never had such an aversion to a book in my life and particularly not to one that’s in such a great series as this one is… or was.  I have loved this series from the beginning and then THIS comes out and I’m left with a very bad taste in my mouth and I’m scared to death to read the finale.

It’s a shame because I know I’m not the only one who really disliked this installment in the series.
