Book Review of Cradle and All

Cradle and All
reviewed on
Helpful Score: 5

I am a huge fan of James Patterson work. That is probably why this book was such a huge disappointment; if I didn't like Patterson's books so much I would just chalk this up to a bad attempt, but it's Patterson! "Cradle and All" is at best preachy and disjointed. At worst this book is a loose collection of bad moral stories and it spends most of it's pages dumbing down what could be a great story and insulting the reader. I am glad that I this was not the first of Patterson's books I had picked up, because if it had been I never would have touched another. I gave him the benefit of the doubt and so far this is the only book I have not loved but honestly the only list this book makes for me is "Never Again!"
