    This is not my kind of thing Most of the story is the biography of Maggie Bradford, the singer, starting from her miserable first marriage, then her later years This part has first person narration which I generally don t like in my books and I don t like it here too Another huge part of the book is the biography of Will Shephard, the famous football player and the second husband of Maggie Th

    Hide and Seek is my first novel by American author, James Patterson This novel made quite an impression to me but it isn t the type of book that hooked me till its end I can still say that It is a page turner because you could imagine the drama and mystery it entails the readers but it only ends at that.The novel tells the story of a famous singer Maggie Bradford who once killed her husband in order

    This was one of my least favorite Patterson novels There is nothing wrong with it except that I didn t care about any of the characters Most of the story is told from Maggie s point of view As a young wife she killed her abusive husband to protect her child She goes on to a fabulous song writing and singing career But the story is told in flashbacks from her sitting in jail awaiting trial for killing her cur

    This book was OK It s main problem was that the first 2 3 of it was just a woman telling us all about her life, love life in particular, over the past 10 or so years This was pretty boring as I don t read James Patterson to hear a woman describe how beautiful her wedding was and how each new guy in her life made her feel so special actually I don t read Patterson at all, I only listen to him on audio books The redeeming aspects of the book

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This book was not my cup of tea I feel that however it is a nice break from Alex Cross this was just not a break I needed Maggie Bradford was a dull character to me, however maybe I just feel that way because I cannot relate to her situation I felt that Patterson focused way to much on Maggie s life and how she lived and not enough of her marriage to Will Shepard and t
