Book Review: The Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson

July 20, 2015

Review by Benjamin, grade 9

As expected of James Patterson, his book incorporates intrigue, mystery, and betrayal. The Angel family is in an uproar after the double homicide of the parents, Maude and Malcolm in an apartment called Dakota. The “perfect parents” were highly successful as were all of the kids. All of the children are now suspects: Young Hugo, with his incredible strength (no this is not The Incredibles), Matthew, winner of the Heisman Trophy and NFL poster boy, musical mastermind Harry, and Tandy Angel, unemotional and curious. Tandy Angel, an abnormal name that indicates oddity, does not mislead because Tandy is strange along with her siblings. In this case, you can judge a book by its cover. The book is best fit for ages 13-17. You can check out this book from Wake County Libraries.

Teens’ Top Ten 2011: Angel by James Patterson

August 5, 2011

Angel by James Patterson is one of the Teens’ Top Ten Nominations for 2011.
After reading Patterson’s Angel for our high school book club I found myself looking forward to finding out what the book club members thought of the book.  Angel is the latest book in the hugely popular Maximum Ride series.  None of the book club members had read any of the books in the series before, but everyone agreed that Angel was written so that you can just jump into the action and get caught up as you go.

Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports by James Patterson

This book is the third installment in the Maximum Ride books (make sure to read from the first and second books, you’ll understand this one a LOT better by doing that). In my personal view, this is the best in the series. It is full of twists and turns that make the Batman roller coaster in Six Flags look puny. I had to put effort to take my eyes off of the pages once the first twist started. The book is definitely an 11 out of 10 (yes, I mean what I say). Read the rest of this entry »

Witch and Wizard by James Patterson

This book was so amazing, I would rate this as a five star book. If you love action, suspense, and fantasy, you have to read this book! Like many of James Patterson’s books such as the Maximum Ride series, this book kept me reading until the last page. The two main characters Wisteria and Whitney Allgood are in the modern world, and suddenly they are taken away from their parents because they were accused as a witch and a wizard. Soon they realize that they do have magical powers, and have to survive in the world of the New Order.

Fang: a Maximum Ride novel by James Patterson

Fang is another of one James Patterson’s awesome adventure packed books. It’s part of the Maximum Ride Series, and I finished the series in like 2 days! The series has 6 books, and the story began like this. Max the main character and her flock ( literally a flock since they’re avian humans, genetically engineered ) have to survive with erasers and flybots attacking them. I can’t tell you anymore, you find out for yourselves! Happy Reading!
