Book Review: The Quickie



The Quickie by James Patterson

I seem to be the only person at the library not enamored with James Patterson. I've listened to a few of this suspense novels and found them...eh. But this stand-alone novel was recommended to me by the Bookmobile Lady, so I gave it a shot.

This novel is incredibly easy to read, with Patterson's trademark quickfire chapters (sometimes only a page long) with lots of little cliffhangers throughout. Lauren is having marital problems and decides to exact revenge by having a "quickie" - only to witness a gruesome murder with her lover turning up dead. The rest of the novel involves her trying to extricate herself from the situation...

I found the ending really flat and uninspired, but I actually enjoyed this novel more than I thought I would, so that's something! Perhaps I'll try another stand-alone novel in the future...
