  1. As an avid reader I ve obviously been familiar with James Patterson, but I had yet to try one of his books I decided to take the plunge with this new one of his that lured with me talks of dark secrets, murders, and teen detectives While I can t compare it with his other works, I ended up feeling very satisfied with it He has an easy to read writing style with incredibly short chapters that makes it almost impossible to put it down since Just one chapter would only take another few minutes or s [...]

  2. Read Ashley Elizabeth s reviews at GeeksUnleashed.MeSo this was my first James Patterson book, Confessions of a Murder Suspect He s a big author, I believe he was the top paid or at least in the top 5 author last year or this year and after what I just read, I don t think I want the exact facts I d rather not know about how much this author makes or maybe I would The only reason I would is so that I can somehow justify what he just wrote as a severe lack of time I can t tell you how many times I [...]

  3. 3.6 5 I am unsatisfied with this book I had great expectations to reading Confessions of a Murder Suspect and it has left me not content James Patterson s Confessions of a Murder Suspect, in my opinion, this book earns 3.6 stars for a mystery book in general Two terrific thing about this book, was the Angel s family background I love the idea of a mad scientist dad, with a family of kids with human supernatural powers, just brillant Second, I adore how James Patterson organizes the book Confessi [...]

  4. Edit Jan 15 2013 Okay, to tell you the truth this book have been on my mind ever since I finished it and reviewed it I have been debating whether to drop the rating down a star The reason was because I kept on thinking to myself why the hell did I give this book a 4 stars I kept thinking and couldn t think of reason why I gave it 4 stars even with the 2 3 mind blowing parts So therefore, I am going to drop this to a 3 End of Edit Jan 15 2013Okay, I am going to do my review a little different I a [...]

  5. I hate forgetting to actually add my review once it s done P here we go When I picked this up from the library, I immediately went to to see people s reviewsI don t usually do that, but I was on the fence about reading this, having only put it on hold upon reading about it in at the end of Never I do not recommend doing that The reviews range from absolutely amazing to what the hell did I just waste my time reading so it did not help me decide if I wanted to read it, whatsoever So I just started [...]

  6. I would give this a 2.5 5 It wasnt really my kind of book but I got tricked into reading it by the pretty cover It was a murder mystery It wasnt a quirky Nancy Drew style story It wasnt haunting like the red and black cover might suggest It wasnt romantic like most YA It was just a murder mystery Tandy s parents are killed in the middle of the night, in their tightly locked up apartment So the cops prime suspects are Tandy, her twin brother Harry, their older brother Matty, and the youngest, Hug [...]

  7. Every once in a while I crave a good mystery whether that is an adult one or a good YA one But let s face it, really good, keep you guessing YA mysteries and far and few in between So when I found out that none other than Patterson himself was writing a YA mystery, I knew it was something that I needed to try and with all four books out, now was the time to do it.I love a good story where the narrator is anything but reliable Where anything goes and nothing is ever as it seems and that is what P [...]

  8. wow this was very good.The family is quirky and the story unfolds a little oddly you re left without all the answers to the questions.but you don t need them all now Just the answer to one big question will do.I loved Tandy, even though she s OCD and definitely has some odd quirksMatty Mathew was a great older opinion but a little gruff and grumpy, the perfect offsetHarry was also great, being her twin and all he just knew her and even Hugo with his wild swim hard or die attitude was some added [...]

  9. Ok, I ll be completely honest here As good and mind blowing was the start, I really and whole heatedly wanted to be able to say the same about the end Im really sorry to say this, but the end really pissed me off After hours of guessing and mapping an almost perfect murder plot, I was really disappointed by the way it ended.Good things This book had me glued to it right from the moment I started with it, it was that amazing atleast in the start I used to try and think about the double murder and [...]

  10. I have never read anything by James Patterson, so when Confessions of a Murder Suspect came up in my audiobook search at the library, I thought it was a good time to give it a try I was pleasantly surprised how well the story flowed and kept me intrigued The audiobook was read by Emma Galvin and was 6 hours, 5 minutes long.Likes I loved the Angel family, they were so unusual and original I love learning about the family, the big chops and the reward adventures they would go on.This story was li [...]

  11. I honestly feel no satisfaction after reading this book It was flat, boring and anti climatic I hated the second person narration sections because it felt so fake It felt as though the author was trying to make you want to find out what happens, teasing you, but it honestly made me not even care what the truth was The book wasn t awful, I didn t have an awful time reading it, and it was easy enough to get through, but I just hated too much about it It was so weak to me that if I ever see a book [...]

  12. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick Dirty Patterson does not disappoint in this teen mystery It s filled with relatable characters and a mysterious story plot that will leave you wanting .Opening Sentence I have some really bad secrets to share with someone, and it might as well be you a stranger, a reader of books, but most of all, a person who can t hurt me.The Review I m a fan of James Patterson and the amazing books that he and his writing partners have written They are always compelli [...]

  14. The Angel family is one of the most prominent lineage in New York City With their successful pharmaceutical empire, and seemingly gifted children, the name is synonymous to wealth and societal hierarchy So when Malcolm and Maud were found dead in their sleep, it was a big deal.With no evidence of force entry, the police suspects the children responsible for the murder of their own parents What happens next is the slow unravelling of secrets behind the children s gifts extra marital relationships [...]

  15. This book I have so many mixed feelings about this book From the start I was so intrigued because the main character herself was unsure of her own innocence, but that made sense and was completely explained in just a few chapters The further I read the and convoluted things got and twisted everyone became Everyone looked like a suspect, but if you read enough murder mystery stories it is admittedly pretty easy to step outside the box and guess what happened The parents I didn t know whether t [...]

  16. WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD This book was really disappointing I kept waiting and waiting for it to get better but it didn t The story itself was confusing in the set up of it because of the actual story versus the confession part of it This went from a decent murder novel to something bizarre real quick when the science stuff came in of the parents trying to create perfect kids and using their kids as guinea pigs What really killed it for me was that at the end you find out the parents just committe [...]

  17. This book sucked ass The only reason I continued to read was to see who actually did it and the answer was so disappointing and underwhelming I apparently tried to read this three years ago and originally liked it but stopped I kind of wish I had just left it at that and not tried picking it up againSO the parents were pretty much emotionally abusing their children, from the snippets we got, which made the eulogy at the end hollow as all get out I feel like that spoiler doesn t matter so I m not [...]

  18. My first Patterson book and I cannot accurately even say how pathetic I thought it was Poorly written, a ridiculous plot, and all the drama of a daytime soap opera Skip.

  19. This book was told in a very persuasive narrative that had me second guessing about what really happened to Malcolm and Maud Angel, two extremely successful and cunning entrepreneurs who were found dead in bed They had four highly intelligent and exceptionally gifted children Matthew, Tandoori, Harry and Hugo who were labeled as the prime suspects for murder especially after they showed no remorse or sadness for their parents death But the Angel kids weren t exactly what you d call normal They t [...]

  20. 2 stars.She can t trust anyone.Maybe not even herself.I could define the whole book in one word BLAND It s not worth the time, and the money I m really disappointed because I thought this one would be a great read to start another year But I was wrong I was painfully wrong I didn t like the main character Tandy Angel I don t know, yeah she s smart, pretty and rich I just didn t like her She just ticked me off I feel bad because I m saying this right now but I don t wanna lie and pretend that I l [...]

  21. I didn t know how to feel about this book when I finished it I didn t know whether I liked it or hated it I also think I am being a little generous with the star rating So maybe I m leaning towards didn t like But there s a reason for my mixed opinion This book was confused I mean it was written that way Tandy was the daughter of the Angels, an elite family well known for the amazingly talanted offspring they produced Every single one of there children have a talent Tandy the unemotional smart [...]

  22. I feel so bad having to rate this as two stars because I am a James Patterson fan However, I could not really lie to myself so I m just going to have to put in my honest review.I started out liking the book Parents found murdered inside their own room with 3 of their children inside the house How was it possible that no one heard them scream How was it possible that they were killed right under the residents noses Who had the motive for doing such a horrendous act As the story went deeper, this [...]

  23. James Patterson, one of the most well known authors, some how continues to produce amazing series With the Maximum Ride, Daniel X, and Witch and Wizard series reaching millions of readers, it seems that maybe Mr Patterson would take a break Thankfully this is not the case with the renowned author s new novel Confessions of A Murder Suspect Written with his extremely visual writing style, Patterson drifts away from his genre of fantasy and science fiction and goes to a realistic mystery with a s [...]

  24. Source I own a copy of this book 16 year old Tandy and her siblings are the only people in the house the night their parents are discovered dead.Who killed Tandy s parents And why did they name her Tandoori The characters in this were all nuts, and the storyline was pretty darn boring considering that people were dead I didn t like Tandoori, and not just because I wasn t a fan of her name She just said the strangest things, she thought the strangest things, her upbringing was bizarre, and she di [...]

  25. I ve just finished the book, and I really don t know how to feel This is the first James Patterson book I ve read, and I think I may be being generous with the star rating.At first, I loved the story I was swept up in the mystery and couldn t wait to find out what had happened to the Angel parents, and I felt like the main protagonist was so interesting and unique to any other character I d read about in young adult literature, but it really didn t last long The whole thing felt very repetitive [...]
