Great Book!

Suzanne's' Dairy to Nicholas is the first novel I have read from James Patterson's collection and I have to say it won't be the last I read. Not only is this a compelling story of love and romance, but it's pages are full of suspense that keeps you reading on until the very end. Patterson tells the story of a young woman named Katie who finds herself deeply in love with a man named Matt. Everything is going great for the two of them when out of the blue Matt ends their two-year relationship without even explaining himself. Katie is given an old diary from Matt, which he uses to explain his poor actions. As Katie reads through the pages she discovers many of Matt's hidden secrets, which includes a wife, and son Katie never knew about. After finishing the dairy Katie realizes she had been wrong for assuming the worst out of Matt and she finds their relationship has grown even stronger after reading this diary. This story had very few weak points except for the occasional sad moments. I highly recommend this book to any audience, male or female, who is in the mood for a great read and has time to sit and read. Once you start this book you won't be able to put it down.

I am a big fan of James Patterson. I've probably read at least a dozen of his books including '1st to Die' and '2nd Chance,' where he essentially writes from a female perspecitive. Except for an occasional gross-out scene, I have enjoyed his books. So, why didn't I like this one? It's not that I have anything against romance. It's not even that I object to the three kleenex box routine. What bothered me about this book was that its characters were just too darn perfect. I mean, what's the worst you can say about Katie? She thinks she's gawky. What's the worst you can say about Suzanne? She's a recovering workaholic. What's the worst you can say about Matt? His dad died when he was young so he fears abandonment. And Nicholas...I'm a grandfather and I love my little grandchildren, but shoot me if I go on about them the way Suzanne goes on about Nicholas. I mean, seriously. As an earlier reader said about this book, it's redundant. It's a short book that's too long. I don't know anyone that is as perfect as these three. I'm certainly not. This book was just too pat. How about some people I can identify with and really care about?

    Great Read

    An old high school teacher loved this book so she suggested it to us, as a great reading book if you love romance novels. I could read this book over and over again and it never gets old.

    First of all I was did not realize the book was so short. I love

    First of all I was did not realize the book was so short. I love long sweeping novels where I get to know the characters completely. As soon as I saw that the novel/short story was 130 pages, I knew it wouldn't be my kind of book. I enjoy a good love story every now and then. But love stories are complicated, even if there is a health issue involved. This was all too perfect. It reminded me of a story my 11 year old daughter would come up with. Pretty lady meets handsome man, fall in love immediately, live happily ever after with a beautiful perfect baby. Tragedy happens, but is told in about a paragraph. Tragedy ends. Prince finds another perfect lady immediately who thinks he is the perfect man. They get married with no argument. They have a wedding. They live happily ever after with a beautiful baby.

    really good book! I found this book hard to follow at first, lit

    really good book! I found this book hard to follow at first, little jumpy, but amazing. I finished it tonight and WOW what a book! I have only read one other book by James Patterson, but I think I have found another great author to add to my list. To have a love like Suzanne and Matt do is so hard to come by. I really enjoyed the book, and the story between Matt and Suzanne and Matt and Katie

    sweet, touching story

    You can't take it away from him, james Patterson is a great author. I have enjoyed many of his suspence novels. But, I must say, I love this softer side of him. Although the book was slightly predictable, it was an easy read and I really enjoyed it.
