I don’t like James Patterson and here’s why in four long winded personal reasons that most Patterson fans will simply write off as nit picking petty or just plain wrong but whatever1 Nobody can convince me that he actually writes his own books any I have no actual proof that he doesn’t but I’m fairly certain— based on the circumstantial evidence that I’m about to lay down— that he does NOT in fact write his own books I’m sure early in his career he actually did his own writing Now though I’m pretty sure that he shops his book ideas around to other writers which is why you never see a James Patterson novel with just his name on it any There is always a co writer’s name on the cover usually in half the font size below Patterson’s giant fonted size name I’m sure these co writers are getting a pretty penny in royalties while Patterson is getting the main credit but these co writers are probably doing all the writing And I’m sorry but no writer can single handedly write the number of books he seems to churn out in a month without the help of a co writer or a ghost writer getting co writer credit Unless of course Patterson is on a cocktail of meth cocaine and No Doze Which could explain the next reason2 His writing sucks He tends to write at a fourth grade level which is probably insulting to most fourth graders I often can’t tell if his intended audience is young adult or people who think Donald Trump is a genius To be fair I’ve read plenty of young adult authors who are far better wordsmiths than Patterson Listen I’m not putting down Patterson simply because he writes at a fourth grade level It’s also what he writes The sentences are sloppy The details he includes tend to be extraneous while he on than a few occasions leaves out significant details His notoriously short chapters may make the story seem to go by uicker but it does nothing to improve the actual story Patterson seems to live by the motto “less is ” but in some cases “less is just less”3 I read “The Murder of King Tut” which claims to be nonfiction it says so on the cover but for a book which claims to be nonfiction and supposedly full of factual information there is not an iota of an attribution credits footnotes endnotes or sources anywhere in the book The parts set during Ancient Egyptian times 14th century read like sections from a novel which is what they are because I am sure that there is no way Patterson knew what the hell King Tut ate or wore on any given day or who Tut slept with I could be wrong Patterson may very well have a time machine was able to go visit Tut interview him talk to his servants and relatives and concubines and the Egyptian man on the street But I doubt it If Patterson had simply called his book a “novel” I wouldn’t be complaining Okay Yeah I would It would still suck Sadly Patterson isn’t just ruining his own reputation with this he’s also hurting the street cred of his co writer Martin Dugard If the name sounds familiar it’s because he’s the co writer for Bill O’Reilly on all his “Killing” books My guess is Dugard did all the hard research and fed it all to Patterson but Patterson didn’t feel the need to share all the hard work that went into the research Why not Because Patterson didn’t do it himself so it doesn’t matter4 Patterson annoyingly interjects himself into his own narrative in such a meaningless and distracting way that even if the book were in any way interesting which it’s not it actually makes the book stupid I don’t need Patterson to tell me three times that he knows who murdered King Tut Especially when in the end he essentially leaves the reader hanging with the worst cop out ending It worked in the movie “Clue” but it doesn’t work here Note to writers don’t keep telling the reader you know who the killer is and then— bam— get to the end and surprise them with “Ha Just kidding I don’t really know who the killer is Just speculation” Besides pissing off the reader you’re actually killing your own credibility Why the fuck would I ever want to read another Patterson novel after this one Answer I wouldn’t

A secret buried of King PDF #202 for centuriesThrust onto Egypt's most powerful throne at the age of nine King Tut's reign was fiercely debated from the outset Behind the palace's veil of prosperity bitter rivalries and jealousy flourished among the Boy King's most trusted advisors and after only nine years King Tut suddenly perished his name purged from Egyptian history To this day The Mur. Put your seat belts on because this is going to be a bumpy review In all his arrogance Patterson claims to have done a great deal of research as he and Martin Dugard try to solve the mystery of the boy king Tutankhamun This is not non fiction as it claims to be but historical fiction The tale is told on three levels chapters highlighting how Patterson visited the recent controversial Tut exhibit that toured America a couple of years ago chapters that introduce readers to the life of archaeologist and Tut tomb founder Howard Carter and chapters covering the short life of Tut himselfThe writing is light and breezy as most of Pattersons other works which makes it a comfortable and uick read The main problem is that the book is simply full of errors It is clear that Patterson and Dugard only did a cursory search of information about Tut and his family and the events surrounding his death as most of what is presented is connected to out of date theories For example the vizier Aye which is traditionally spelled Ay is generally considered the father of Nefertiti Tut's step mother It is uite bothersome to see Patterson have him practically ruling over her through most of the early part of the bookIt is generally believe that Tut lived for uite some time as he ruled and he and his wife are considered models of ancient romance During his reign much was done to reinstate the gods and both he and his wife Ankhesanamun dropped the Aten from their names to be replaced by the traditional lord of the gods Amun As a result major holes are punched into the theories presented by Patterson and Dugard as to who killed the boy kingHoward Carter is also presented as a talented archaeologist who worked hard to find success and was beaten down by others In some ways this was true but he was also considered by many of his contemporaries to be arrogant and boorish Few wanted to work with him or respected him before and after the finding of Tut's tomb He is well known and respected for the findings but he was not well lovedTo be honest it almost feels like Patterson and Dugard basically sat down and watched The Face of Tutankhamun a pretty good but outdated 3 part documentary put out by the BBC in 1993 Much of the proposed theories in the book are similar though many have been overruled by new scientific techniues and further findings in the field For example the head injury cited in the book as possibly playing a major role during his death is now believed to have been caused by the embalming process after Tut's skull has been examined with modern MRI technologyIt irks me that a book filled with this many errors is being marketed as non fiction particularly in light of the fact that the format of the presentation is novelization Those with any knowledge of ancient Egypt's 18th Dynasty will see the wholes and the general public will find themselves misled Writers of historical fiction are allowed to take liberty with the facts as the storytelling is at the core of the presentation Writers of non fiction should not since they are presenting things as being fact This is the first time I have not enjoyed Patterson I am actually disgusted He should be ashamed and should maybe consider actually contacting an Egyptologist if he would like to try this againThose looking for great mysteries set in King Tut's time should read the Lord Meren series by Lynda S Robinson There is also the mystery series by Lauren Haney that focuses on Lt Bak a Medjay detective during the time of Hatshepsut Other great writers with stories centering around ancient Egypt include Judith Tarr Pauline Gedge and Michelle MorinFor those looking for mysteries relating to archaeologist the best choice is the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters the pen name of well respected egyptologist Barbara Mertz Both Amelia and Dr Mertz would greatly disagree with the view of Carter presented in Patterson's workAs for looking for biographies about Nefertiti Tut Akenaten or any other of the people presented in the book there is no shortage of great works by specialists in the field Any of them would be better than this

The Murder of King TutE #209 cryptThe clues point to murderNow in The Murder of King Tut James Patterson and Martin Dugard dig through stacks of evidence X rays Carter's files forensic clues and stories told through the ages to arrive at their own account of King Tut's life and death The result is an exhilarating true crime tale of intrigue passion and betrayal that casts fresh light on the oldest mystery of all. This has got to be the most awful book I have read in a long time if not my entire life I have never read a James Patterson book never had an urge The only reason I picked this one up was because it sounded interesting as an historical novel He bills this book as a 'non fiction thriller' This is complete and utter bullst I was a history major in undergrad I have read PLENTY of non fiction books This is NOT one of them Patterson is making crap up as he goes along He's making these real people into fictional characters It's a huge shame And there is no 'thriller' anything about thing book It is written on a child's level It's very simple the dialogue is too easy There are over 100 chapters in this book and it is not that long Each chapter is about 1 3 pages each Patterson goes as far as making himself a character in this book That just shows you how much this books sucks when the author decided to insert himself in it as a self righteous detective Patterson's 'theory' on Tut's death is completely absurd and he shows no evidence of his thesis even though he says he studied the history of the boy King extensively He basically wrote a historical fiction and then at the end randomly states that this is my thesis on how Tut died and it's the truth I solved the mystery of his death Case closed When there wasn't even a mystery to begin with For God's sake skip this piece of crap It's not worth anyone's time
