Biography of Patterson, James

James Patterson was born in Newburgh, New York, on March 22, 1947. He graduated from Manhattan College in 1969 and received a M. A. from Vanderbilt University in 1970. His first novel, The Thomas Berryman Number, was written while he was working in a mental institution and was rejected by 26 publishers before being published and winning the Edgar Award for Best First Mystery.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-03-11)

The brother-and-sister team of Whit and Wisty inhabit a dystopia future where the New Order maintains totalitarian control. Forming a resistance movement with other determined teens, they use their magical powers to battle "The one who is the one". If the drama sounds a bit overblown and artificial, it is. Characters are thin, and attempts to fit the novel's content into an abbreviated form-and keep the focus on action-result in both rushed pacing and plot gaps.

What's more, the dialog (without a hint of irony) doesn't read true for teens-has anyone referred to a sibling as "sis" since the 1970's? Verdict This is a reasonable graphic novel translation of a rather mediocre novel accessible to preteens and teens. However, even pretty pictures and an active layout can't make the story better than it is. The novel sold on Patterson's best-selling reputation, and the graphic novel may do the same, but it fails to satisfy. Buy only it if your patrons request it.
