J. Patterson Book Club-- NEW BOOK!

So, I know that we have a bunch of James Patterson fans out there...

I received the James Patterson newsletter today, a new book has been released : Step on a Crack. It features a character which is to be a recurring figure in more novels.

Anyway, just wondering if there was an interest out there:

Whoever is interested should get the book and rwe'll all read section by section and have a lil AF book chat about what we think is to happen, etc, etc.

Any interest? It could be fun!!!!! I've never really done a book club before.

I James Patterson!! Is this an Alex Cross novel? I haven't checked my email today so I know I have that newsletter in there! I am pumped!!

The only problem I have with a section by section book club is that once I pick a JP book, I CAN'T PUT IT DOWN!! I can usually finish one in 4-6 hours!!

I know. I usually finish them in a few hours too. We'll have to decide what to do. What do you ladies prefer? I don't care either way!

He is a new character (name I can't remember) . I got from the email that he will be the main character in a new series like Lindsay and Alex.

The chapters are like a page and a half long.....noway can I do that, maybe break it up into quarters? Say the book is 200 pages, so we read the first 25, etc.????

What is this book about? Do I need to read books before this one to follow the storyline? I've never read one his books.

^this is going to be the start of a new series! so no, but even with the previous cross series, you wouldn't need to, he fills you in a bit as he goes along, and they aren't super revelant to one another, just have the same person in them.

That sounds good to me. I agree the chapters a page and a half long. I'll go buy the book today and try and separate it into (thirds or fourths???? or some other fraction)

You will be fine, like Keri said. He is a great writer and I'm sure this book will be addicting, never put-it-down book. The Borders Coupon above expires tomorrow!!

That sounds great. I got mine today. I couldn't help myself.... and I read the prologue. It is AWESOME. Hopefully a preview of how great the book will be. Wednesday sounds good to me too. The book has a prologue + 116 chapters. How do you want to split it up?
Option A: Half- Proglogue-Ch 80. Ch-80-end.
Option B- Read the whole thing
Option C: Quarters- Chapters Prologue-29, 29-58,58-87, 87-end.
Option D: Anything anyone else can recommend. I'm up for whatever is best for everyone else. I'm flexible and don't mind!

Hmmm. I am not sure how to split it up. If I can stay off the FORUM I can read more!!!! How many pages are the chapters on average? I can usually swing 20-30 chapters a night if I don't start on a Saturday morning or something! Then, I usually finish by the early evening!

I saw a commercial about the book last night--it really looked like a movie trailer! The main character is a hostage negotiator so I am not so sure I am gonna love him as much as Alex and Lindsay. But I will definitely give him a try!!
