ALWAYS WANTING MORE


There is nothing better than digging into a new novel that grabs your attention from the start. I had some time to kill across town so, of course, I ran into the nearest book store. I felt like a kid in the candy store, so many choices from new releases to bargain bins; I wanted to buy several. How do you limit your purchase to just one?
The store clerk all but ignored me when I came up to the desk to ask her a question. She was easily half my age with pink floral panties showing above her slouched baggy sweat pants. Smacking her gum she referred me to the artistic looking gentlemen that didnít appear to care much about personal hygiene. I resolved to not let them ruin my experience. I settled for the hard cover bargain bin pick by James Patterson with a co-author.
How do you co-author a novel? Is this just a way of James not having to do his own writing; just simply putting his big name on the cover, sells? No, as I start the novel I immediately pick up on his ability to start with action and keep it coming. His best works compare to Keifer Sutherland on 24. Iím simply at awe how authors like James can continue to add interesting characters though out the novel; some we love, some we love to hate.
It takes me only 5 days to devour the 383 page novel, when some books sit on my shelf half read for months maybe years before I finish them. On the fifth day finishing the book is bittersweet as I wish for more pages of this escape from my own reality. Until next time.

Very Nice. I was waiting for the bitter-sweet reveal.

I'm guessing it was a copy and paste thing but paragraph's would have made for a better look and easier read.

BTW, I think I've been to that bookstore. :)

Oh, yes! I can definitely relate to this, the excitement of a new book, reading it out as quickly as possible and the inevitable low that comes from finishing a really, really, REALLY good book. Nice job with this, short and sweet!

Oh I know that happy feeling ion a bookstore but fortunately not met those offputting sales people!. I dont know the author you mention. Is he imaginary? doesnt matter either way as you describe the mix of emotions well
