Pequena biografia
James Patterson and his wife live with their son in Palm Beach.
James Brendan Patterson (born March 22, 1947) is an American author and philanthropist. Among his works are the Alex Cross, Michael Bennett, Women's Murder Club, Maximum Ride, Daniel X, NYPD Red, Witch and Wizard, and Private series, as well as many stand-alone thrillers, non-fiction and romance novels. His books have sold more than 300 million copies and he was the first person to sell 1 million e-books. In 2016, Patterson topped Forbes's list of highest-paid authors for the third consecutive year, with an income of $95 million. His total income over a decade is estimated at $700 million.

In November 2015, Patterson received the Literarian Award from the National Book Foundation, which cited him as a "passionate campaigner to make books and reading a national priority. A generous supporter of universities, teachers colleges, independent bookstores, school libraries, and college students, Patterson has donated millions of dollars in grants and scholarships with the purpose of encouraging Americans of all ages to read more books."

Patterson was born on March 22, 1947, in Newburgh, New York, the son of Isabelle (Morris), a homemaker and teacher, and Charles Patterson, an insurance broker. The family were working-class and of Irish descent. He graduated summa cum laude with both a B.A. in English from Manhattan College and an M.A. in English from Vanderbilt University.

Apparently the second in a series. A group of children who have been DNA spliced with birds are on the run from their captors. This takes them from a brief stint in the DC area, to a country mansion of an FBI agent and then on two FL and Disney World. Pretty much non-stop from start to finish, reads like an action movie.

The name of this book should have been Beat The Hell Out of Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer. Poor Lindsay gets beaten up several times, both physically and emotionally. Her husband, Joe Molinari, also has a more significant role in the story. Readers would remember Joe was x-FBI and used to work for Homeland Security. Still, in recent books, he's been a househusband and doting father to his and Lindsay's daughter, Julie. This book's plotline profoundly delves into the secrets Joe's been keeping that could tear him and Lindsay apart—maybe forever! The 15th Affair has explosive action, crazy plot twists, and searing suspense. I loved it.… (mais)

I have never read a maximum ride book so this is coming from an outsider.
1) I don’t know who this was written for. There were hundreds of swears in this book, usually multiple per sentence. Hawk was 15 but acted a lot older at times and a lot younger at times.
2) Max and Hawk were indistinguishable from each other. They both spoke the same (read: swearing), acted the same, and thought the same.
3) As I was reading, I was doing the math. Max had Hawk when she was 15/16?!?!

1 Star

Content: so much swearing, violence, death, torture, etc. (you get the idea)

Would it suffice it to say that after I'd finished my free but temporary digital galley edition I immediately got myself an audio so no one who visits me can abscond with my copy (a common problem in my house)?
I really enjoyed hearing how so many librarians and booksellers came to do what they really enjoy. It was always a given that they love to read books, smell books, share books, but there are so many other intangibles that made this such a great read. The fact that each is in their own words makes it even better!
I requested and received a free temporary digital galley edition from Little, Brown and Company via NetGalley. Thanks for sharing!
