    Undoubtedly cheap...I bought the James Patterson one, first one of his books I've read and I have to say I can see why it's so cheap...it's garbage! HOT yes, but only because it would make good fuel for the fire...

    James Patterson books were MUCH more readable before he started "co-authoring". Basically all he does know is write a skeleton plan which another author fills out (allowing him to churn out like 2+ books a year). If you want to read him at his best (and I am not saying he's fantastic, but still, a lot better) look for his earlier work, in particular the first 5 'Alex Cross' novels and the 'Lake House' series.

    Not a huge fan of the MB series tbh. Maybe I am just prejudiced towards his co-authored attempts not... but I dont think so. The second one is okay, and I thought the first one is just awful! I even think theres a departure in standard in the AC series - before sales really took off, he spent so much longer writing each one, and you can tell I think. When he started releasing 2 or more books year after year the quality (IMO) dropped significantly.

    How do you know that? (or is it just an assumption?)

    Im afraid its bad journalism because I can't give you a specific point of reference, but I have read it twice in different magazines/review articles. So, ya know, im not 100% on it, but its a fair assumption.

    I thought Midnight Club was a brilliant book.

    I did wonder how he seemed to be able to write and publish a book something ridiculous like every 2 months (probably less than that but its still excessive compared to other authors).

    The books vary in quality as they vary with co-author. That alone makes it clear that he isn't the one actually writing them!
