Imposter1 star

Half way through and I’ve closed it for the last time. Lame characters, unbelievable plot, action, story. Waste of eye and brain. 15


The Chef1 star

Lame, convoluted plot. Shallow characters. Surprised Patterson put his name on this book. Rated it 1/5 stars so there would be no confusion that I submitted a rating. 15


Not a great read...2 star

Not up to the standard of his previous books. There was lots of jumping around and it made me not like the main character. Not a great effort. 25


Not worth 5 minutes1 star

bad writing and unimaginative plot 15

The Chef is hard to swallow1 star

Not up to James Patterson standards. Dialogue and characters are mostly laughable. Read during a transcontinental flight and was easy to speed read since much of the narrative was pure drivel. Sorry I wasted my time. 15


Very lame.2 star

Very lame and very boring. 25
