This is how I felt with Private Berlin. In and of itself it was an awesome read. The style was similar to that I found in NYPD Red; not the original Patterson, but one I enjoyed none-the-less. That being said it was a fast paced, explosive, and adrenaline filled thriller. It could have been better but in a book I expect to read in less than 2 days I got the best for my money. If James Patterson took the time to author this one by himself I think he could have easily spun out a longer, more compact, and more cohesive story. It seems that the use of double space typing and chapters that begin with more than half the page blank is just a simple way of making the story appear longer. To me that is frustrating to pay $27.99 for a hardback book when I can go and buy The Legend of Broken or The Yard for the same price and have the book last for 4 or 5 days.
Overall I think this was another job well done for James Patterson. Not the best; but certainly not the worst one. For all of you who enjoy a Patterson novel I think you would regret not reading this one; even if it is simply to say you have. I think you will find you appreciate this one and it might help you to open your eyes to the books he has coauthored with others.
new to offer.
Authenticity is much more than place names. Authors who have captured the nuances of German characters in their books know what I mean. Once cannot simply transpose emotional states of a character from one culture to another, without having experienced, for example, how a German
individual, be it an artist, a cop, or a politician typically responds to fear, death, betrayal,
happiness, and so on. For example,a bereaved man, woman, or child in the U.S. thinks, speaks, and behaves quite differently from the German counterparts. Herein lies the greatest weakness of this novel, in my view.
