Well...if you like the Maximum Ride series you might like this one. It took a while for me to get into reading it but it turned out to be pretty good. Of all the series and one off books I think this is my least favorite though. I'll probably still buy the next book and give a chance. It was a very quick read.

Well I guess I'll let you know more in a few days. I saw the book today and bought it. Very busy week but it seems to be fairly short.

Definitely off his normal mode of things. Maybe closer to the Max series with a little scifi. Regardless of the series or one off books I've loved every one of them so I'm excited to give it a read. If Patterson had a hand in writing it I can't help but think it will be worth the money/read.

I'm not sure what to think. I think it's science fiction based but still a mystery. I went back to his site and got one of the excerpts. I read them all but still have no idea. I guess this means I have to go to Borders emoticon


Here's the excerpt.

True Confessions

IF THIS WERE A MOVIE instead of real life, this would be the part where in a strange, ominous voice I'd say, "Take me to your leader!"

But since you are far more important in making a difference in this world than the earth's leaders, and last time I checked on the Internet those leaders seem to have more than enough on their plates, and for the most part I'm not a total dork, I'll just go with a simple "Hi."

My name is Daniel, and this is the first volume of my life story, which, hopefully, will be a very long and distinguished one.

Why should you read it? Very good question.

Maybe because this is your planet, and you have a right to know what's actually happening on it.

And more important, off it.

Trust me, there are legions of strange and disturbing creatures out there you probably don't want to know about.

Like the fast-breeding creeps with burnt-looking metallic faces and deer horns bristling above hornet noses and stingers, who populate the American Midwest and parts of Europe. Or some very nasty sluglike thingies with jowls like water balloons about to burst all over much of Japan and China, as well as New York City and Vancouver. Plus a host of human-skeletonish freaks with tentacle hair and green multifaceted fly eyes; some white chocolate–colored cretins that look like giant human babies, only with glowing television fuzz for their eyes and mouths; and a praying mantis–looking race with shrunken heads, long red dreadlocks, and a pathetic need to kill, operating in the general area of Texas, Kansas, and Oklahoma.

Maybe I should stop talking, though, before I get too far ahead of myself.

To those of you who feel that you've heard enough, let me say I'm sorry I had to give you a glimpse of what's really out there, and would you please close the cover of this book down tightly on your way out.

Now, the rest of you, I need you to do three important things.

1. Take a deep, deep breath.
2. Disregard everything anyone has ever told you about life on earth.
3. Turn the page.

Namaste,

I was just on Mr. Patterson's page and he has new book coming out. I swear, he writes them so fast, I have a hard time keeping up. It's called "The Dangerous Days of Daniel X". Have any of you heard of this & what do you think?
