Review: Lifeguard



Lifeguard by James Patterson

I've been slowly working my way through Patterson books, because he is insanely popular at the library and I'd never really read him before.

Now that I have a few under my belt, I found this one to be a bit weak. Sure, the plotting was fine and the characters were fine, but nothing really GRABBED me and kept me intriqued until the last page like some other mystery and suspense writers I've been reading.

Not one of Patterson's strongest...I would recommend one of the series or >Honeymoon instead...

Note: I listened to the audio version, narrated by Billy Campbell. Campbell's accents were a bit weak, but overall it was a solid performance (even if I did keep picturing Evil!Billy from Enough when he was a wifebeating meanie. ;-)
