Meet the Author

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 240 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

Biography

James Patterson had been working as a very successful advertising copywriter when he decided to put his Masters degree in English to a somewhat different use. Inspired by bestselling hair-raising thrillers like The Day of the Jackal and The Exorcist, Patterson went to work on his first novel. Published in 1976, The Thomas Berryman Number established him as a writer of tightly constructed mysteries that move forward with the velocity of a bullet. For his startling debut, Patterson was awarded the prestigious Edgar Award for Best First Mystery Novel—an auspicious beginning to one of the most successful careers in publishing.

A string of gripping standalone mysteries followed, but it was the 1992 release of Along Came a Spider that elevated Patterson to superstar status. Introducing Alex Cross, a brilliant black police detective/forensic psychologist, the novel was the first installment in a series of bestselling thrillers that has proved to be a cash cow for the author and his publisher.

Examining Patterson's track record, it's obvious that he believes one good series deserves another…maybe even a third! In 2001, he debuted the Women's Murder Club with 1st to Die, a fast-paced thriller featuring four female crime fighters living in San Francisco—a homicide detective, a medical examiner, an assistant D.A., and a cub reporter. The successful series has continued with other numerically titled installments. Then, spinning off a set of characters from a previous novel (1998's When the Wind Blows), in 2005 he published Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment. Featuring a "flock" of genetically engineered flying children, the novel was a huge hit, especially with teen readers, and spawned a series of vastly popular fantasy adventures.

In addition to continuing his bestselling literary franchises, Patterson has also found time to co-author thrillers with other writers—including Peter de Jonge, Andrew Gross, Maxine Paetro, and Howard Roughan—and has even ventured into romance (Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, Sam's Letters to Jennifer) and children's literature (santaKid). Writing at an astonishing pace, this prolific author has turned himself into a one-man publishing juggernaut, fulfilling his clearly stated ambition to become "the king of the page-turners."

Good To Know

Patterson's Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas was inspired by a diary his wife kept that tracked the development of their toddler son.

Two of Patterson's Alex Cross mysteries (Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls) have been turned into films starring Morgan Freeman; in 2007, a weekly television series premiered, based on the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels.

    I love Maximum Ride!

    I can't wait till this comes out! I'm hoping the cover picture will be of Nudge. She's sooo pretty. :) I have all of the first three manga books already so I'll definitely be adding this one to the collection! GO MAXIMUM RIDE!!!!!

    Good for Middle Schoolers

    However, it may turn out to be kinda bland as you get older. It started out great, the plot that is, but lately it's been dragging on. The first 3 books were great and in my opinion it should've ended with three books and a fourth one to wrap it all up but alas, we are heading for our 7th and last book.

    I once was an avid fan but after the 6th one it took so many loops and turn to the point I don't know what I was reading. The first one was so harmless and adventurous and hilarious but lately has become a soap opera.

    However, I am older than I was 3 or 4 years ago. I think it's a good series for middle-schoolers definitely.

    Read the real thing!

    I dont know if you like the mangas or the book better. But right now for me it would be the books. Not being a hater to the mangas, but the manga does sometimes go off topic for the book. Just saying you should probably read the books first before you go into anymore of these versions kk.?

    Highly recommend for readers of Anime.

    From an eleven year old girls perspective, my daughter loves these graphic novels. She loves the action and characters. Would recommend for Tweens and teens who enjoy Anime.

    great, but ending is shot

    Really, really good. Awesome art as usual, but again with the sudden ending. And by "sudden" I mean "rip-off". The first book's ending made sense. It was a cliffhanger. But for three and four (I'm talking about the manga books here, not the written series, by the way) it just ended abruptly with cliffhangers that, in the original books, weren't even the biggest or most shocking turns of events. And then the last 20 pages or so are dedicated to ANOTHER graphic novel of Patterson's! I get the point of advertising and making money, but come on. I paid 10-something bucks for this, twenty pages aren't even what I paid for, and the ending is like one of those wet farts. Bad sounds, I know, but still. Don't get me wrong: I love the series. But writing and art should be about expressing your story and talent, not just for money. It seems like that's whats going on here, and that is not cool, plain and simple.

    Really good

    Now I really want to read the books now. Already the story is getting really good and I'm liking the characters more and more. And already gushed about the art so I won't say how much I like it. Anyway, this volume was really good as the characters try to find answers and seem to have a lead.

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!!  Fantastic Must

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!!  Fantastic Must Read Manga Series!!  Great gift for reluctant readers!!
    **Checked out from the high school library

    Okay this is book 4, and I still love this series :)  As always remember these reviews are tough for me because it is harder to talk about these without giving away too much.  They are a quick read for me as well.

    Max and Fang are still awesome at protecting the flock, but Angel does help out with her special abilities when needed.  Total is full of surprises and his own talents.  Iggy had a surprise in this story.  And the flock is betrayed and lied to even more in this story.  I feel bad for them and wish I could adopt this kids.  They need someone who looks out for them instead of them being used.  Great story that keeps you intrigued and sucked into the story.  There are no boring parts in this series.

    I can’t wait to read book 5!!  And this is going to happen very soon!!

    I highly recommend graphic novels/manga for all your reluctant readers and your kids who are very visual.  I also think they are a great break in between books or filler when you don’t have time to read a full novel.
