Currently reading: The Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale. It's OK, but the world is kind of unrealistic. I mean, it sounds like it's based on Ancient China, but they have winters that rival Canada's; and they ride YAKS. Come on. Apparently there's "muckers" that  sing songs that heal people, but there's no magic involved.... and one of the characters (very annoyingly) bursts into tears every second paragraph.

On the plus side, it's got a great adventurous feel, and the beginning drew me in. It's a good book, I want to finish it, but the unrealistic-ness of its setting put me off. 

Going to read next: possibly A War of Gifts by Orson Scott Card.

I liked the ending... Max got exactly what she deserved and Fang ran off for no freaking reason... it's perfect!

Is it true that JP has a ghost-writer who writes some of the MR books? I've seen that rumor around the internet...

I don't think so, but he had some ghost writers for his Witch and Wizard and Daniel X books.

BTW, Angel: A Maximum Ride Novel is the next book!

I don't think it''s his style certain person is way more detailed......



but yeah James Patterson toadally uses ghost writers allong with the people who "help" him which to me is basically them writing the whole book but atleast he is man enough to admitt it.

I think all the ones where it says "James Patterson" and someone else actually means "Someone Else" (such as Ned Rust for one of the Dan X's) with JP's name on it.
