London Bridges

Just a quick note, I finished James Patteron's London Bridges last night and I'm still a bit stunned at how poorly written and paced it was compared to some of his other works. It felt like a series of disjointed scenes and half of them didn't even make sense. None of the character responses to the plot really seemed genuine, nor did the setting and environment.

I guess I shouldn't be all that surprised really. After so many books, he's just rolling around in the money and it's probably just dialing it in. God knows that's probably what I would be doing. I imagine it's much like Piers Anthony writing his 40th Xanth book or whatever it's up to now. After a while, it's all about the royalties check and considering his fan base, he could probably string random words together and still sell a million copies.

Still, it's sort of disapointing. I was hoping to see if anyone else had read it and had a similar impression. At this point, I've finally finished the entire series except the last two books, both of which I only have on audio format and haven't gotten to. I would have finished over a month ago if it weren't for the fact that I hadn't been able to find my copy of London Bridges. It wasn't until the grand cleaning that it finally resurfaced.

Anyway, if you've read it, let me know. I'd like to bounce some feedback.
