The Lake House
The Lake House by James Patterson
I've never read Patterson (except for the awful Sam's Letters to Jennifer), so I wanted to grab another book to give it a whirl.
This novel details six extraordinary children as they struggle to lead normal lives, despite extrordinary danger and a powerful connection to each other. They all long to return to the lake house - the home where they had lived with their trusted adult allies, Frannie and Kit.
Patterson's story is original, well paced and entertaining - though the abruptness and resolution of the story left me a bit cold. I'm curious how this story correlates with Patterson's new YA novel, Maximum Ride.
All in all, a good, suspenseful story...
Note: I listened to the audio edition, narrated by Hope Davis and Stephen Lang, who both did a great job. The music scores really added to the suspense and production of the audiobook.
