You've Been Warned ~ James Patterson & Howard Roughan

Publisher: Little, Brown & Company
Pub. Date: September 2007


Kristin Burns is making her way in New York City. Her photos are being considered at a major Manhattan gallery, she works by day with two wonderful children, and the man of her dreams is almost hers for keeps. But just as everything she's ever wanted is finally within reach, her life changes forever--with one murderous nightmare. Kristin wakes up every morning from the same chilling, unforgettable dream. And suddenly, it's visiting her during the day too. As her life turns stranger by the minute, Kristin is haunted and terrified. Is it all in her head? Or is the nightmare becoming her life? Kristin searches desperately for what's real through the lens of her camera, only knowing two things for sure: that no place is safe and the fate of everyone she loves lies in her hands.

It is obvious Patterson is going for quantity & not quality in this bizarre but boring attempt @ infusing supernatural elements into You've Been Warned.

I think he was trying to branch out into the supernatural arena -- maybe it was my mind trying to grasp the dreadfully peculiar happenings.

Patterson's signature short chapters, speedy nonsensical storyline & ever present co-author is packaged into a snoozefest.

You've Been Warned...

Grab the Tylenol.

Walk Run away!!!

I love Patterson's Alex Cross series but this novel is best stored away for when there is a toilet paper shortage!

  1. "You've Been Warned" - all i could think of when i finished this book is that the title said it all ---it was awful!!!!

  2. Really!?! I loved this book! Thought it was one of his better ones...but then again, I love all that I've read. :) I'm a late bloomer when it comes to Patterson, but I've slowly been catching up.
