Why I like it & why you should read it

I like this book because it's cool and suspenseful. You should read it because it is a fantastic book, once you pick it up and start reading you just can't put it down your going to wonder what will happen next. I wasn't always a fan of James Patterson, but after I read the first book, I had to figure out how the series is going to end.
