Unsolved - James Patterson & David Ellis
One you get to chapter four, read the first three chapters again very slowly, recognizing that the author never took a class in pronouns. You won’t know who is thinking or talking when you read, but if you are very smart you might eventually figure it out.
At chapter four you begin to think the authors meds have started to take effect. Shortly, however, the author sinks into non sequiter once again.
Patterson is a great writer. It is too bad the publisher convinced him to sell his name and allow very poor writers to put his name on their books. It is even worse that he never attempted to read this book before it was published.
As you read, always remember that a “I” in the first paragraph of a new chapter never relates to the person in the previous chapter.
If Patterson’s collaborator goes to pronoun school — or stops trying to be so cute with a book’s sequence — there may be a future for him. But skip this one. Punish the publisher.
