Amethyst Soul

Brillianty composed; a page-turner. Patterson's diction is simple enough for anyone to understand but forceful enough to convey the emotions of various characters. The story is beautiful from beginning to end- one of those "human lessons" that you hope will never be forgotten.

I thought this book was neat so what's the first guy's problem? lol

I think that this is an awesome book. Nothing could be so close to the truth as time and sience progress who knows what will be created, or who. I am waiting on the next big discovery. We are now cloning people and messing around with D.N.A. and genes so who knows what will happen.

Book Review
I thought When the Wind Blows was a very exciting and refreshing book. I wasn't too sure about it, what with it being about bird-people and whatnot. But it really surprised me. I thought the storyline was catchy and entertaining. It kept me wanting to turn to the next page. I would definitely reccomend this book for others to read. It's got a mix of science fiction, adventure, and a little bit of romance. Just about everything rolled into one book. It's one of Patterson's better books, and I can't wait to read the sequel.

Why the When the wind blows, blows.
To be honest, I love James Patterson's books. Just not When the wind blows and The Lake House. I have read Maximum Ride books and loved them till the 4th book, then it just gets silly. When I heard there was a book that was just like Maximum Ride, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. So I read it. When the Wind Blows is said to not have anything to deal with Maximum Ride. Sure, fine with me. But they are so much alike, which in time will confuse people. It also has a immature writing. Not his best. The details suck, and it doesn't flow well. I truly believe that if he rewrote it, it would be ten times better. It's like a kids book with swearing and sex. The idea of the book AMAZING!!! But the book itself is poorly written.

It just did't do it for me.
this book was boring as hell

this book was boring and long


Ian Sandon
A very interesting book, with James Patterson's usual pounding pace. The descriptions were magical, and the continual twisting of the plot keeps the reader on their toes... I would heartily recommend this to anyone with an interest in the very volatile subject of GM.
