"Nobody tells you when you pay six figures for a lion for a couple days that, to perform, they have to eat a lot of meat. The problem is they eat so much they get lazy and stop being scary after a couple days, so then you have to bring in a second lion. Now we have one lion who's great at snarling and snapping and roaring, and another one that's great at running." Bill Robinson, co-president of ...

Resolved Question: Thoughts on James
He is a very well known children's author and I have finished reading 2 novels of his. 1. Maximum Rode - The Angel Experiment and 2. Witch & Wizard.
All I have to say is that he is overrated. His writing is okay but there is too much action and little 'feelings' involved. And when there are feelings he doesn't make us feel the character, instead he tells us.
In a nutshell, what do you think of James Patterson?

Resolved Question: Comprehending 2nd Chance
I read the book 2 times and can't quite figure out how to explain the setting and atmosphere other than the general area of San Francisco, also the climatic scene (rising action) and any unique phrases Patterson uses I can't pick out any.

Resolved Question: Who is James Patterson?
People write books all the time. NO ONE ELSE get's tv commercials to sell their books. What makes this guy so special?

Resolved Question: What do you think of the
In our local bookstore, there's a whole aisle dedicated to his works. I haven't really counted the exact number of his works but I'd figure it'd more or less amount to a hundred or so. I also read maybe 3-4 of his books before I finally got tired of him.
He's not really that good in writing, is he? He's more of a "Stephanie Meyer" type of author, one who simply knows the current trend in readers and would write novels to meet that demand. They're not exactly good writers, merely intuitive to the public demand. I've read better works the likes of Sheldon, Orwell, and Crichton.
What do you think of James Patterson? Am I the only who thinks he's much too overrated in the book scene?

Resolved Question: Who reads James
I mean a lot of his novels, including the novels at the beginning of his career when he was actually writing them himself, lol?
I read an interview Patterson gave where he said that he's found that he likes to come up with the ideas rather than write the books. So, he hires other writers to write the books. Are there any differences in the writing styles in the books Patterson has written himself and the books he's commissioned other writers for? Or, do the writers do a good job of imitating Patterson's writing style?
What do you think?
OMG! I did a bit of research before I posted this question and Stephen King says that Patterson is a bad writer. :o http://whosnews.usaweekend.com/2009/02/exclusive-stephen-king-on-jk-rowling-stephenie-meyer/
