4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Read; Better Than a Lot of Recent Books, September 20, 2011
This review is from: Heat Rises (Nikki Heat) (Hardcover)
If you liked the first books in this series, you'll really enjoy this one. If you're new to the realm that Castle presents here, you can still jump in and enjoy (though it's suggested you check out the first two, first!)

A lot of people compare Castle to Patterson and I don't think it's unfair, but perhaps due to so many fewer books, Castle is perceived as slightly less "commercial." But commercial works, commercial sells. This isn't Shakespeare, you won't be asking yourself deep questions about life during or after reading, but you'll enjoy it. And that's what books are all about! Don't go into this looking for a deeper meaning, just go into it with the hope of a fun read, and you'll really be glad you did.

How can Castle possibly be seen as less commercial? You do know that the books are based off those written in a fictional TV show about a writer, don't you?

I agree with this posting on Heat Rises, this book is just FUN, with a capital "F". The Nikki Heat series of books as a follow along to the Castle series on TV are really wonderful. For me they are mind candy. Most of my reading is either profesional journals or historical analysis of Middle Eas politics. Who couldn't love something staring "Captain Tight Pants"?
