More About James Patterson
It is no surprise that in January, 2010, The New York Times Magazine featured James Patterson on its cover and hailed him as having "transformed book publishing," and that Time magazine hailed him as "The Man Who Can't Miss." Recently, NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams profiled Patterson's prolific career, AARP named him one of the "50 Most Influential People Who Make Our Days a Little Brighter," and Variety featured him in a cover story highlighting his adventures in Hollywood.
In 2011, it was estimated that one-in-four of all hardcover suspense/thriller novels sold was written by James Patterson, he is the first author to achieve ten million ebook sales, and he holds the Guinness record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers of any author. And his success isn't based solely on thrillers like the perennially popular Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club and Michael Bennett series. Patterson is now also the current bestselling author in the young adult and middle grade categories.
He's been called the busiest man in publishing, and that's not just because of his own books. For the past decade, James has been devoting more and more of his time to championing books and reading.
From the James Patterson Pageturner Awards, to his website ReadKiddoRead.com, to his College Book Bucks scholarships and his regular donations of hundreds of thousands of books to schools here in the states and troops overseas (see interviews on Fox & Friends, The Dennis Miller Radio Show and CNN.com), Patterson has passed on his passion of books and reading and supported those who do the same. Jim personally funded a major ad campaign re-printing a recent opinion piece on CNN.com about how it is our responsibility to get our kids reading. The ad has run in the New York Times, The New Yorker, and USA Today. Those ads are a call to action to parents to make their kids reading a top priority; and were featured by USA Today here. Patterson believes that we cannot rely on schools, teachers or the government to get our kids reading; only parents can make this crucial change in the reading habits of our kids. Here are links to some interviews on his first-ever dual laydown (two books, one for parents and one for kids, in one day): AOL's You've Got, NBC's "Today Show" with Hoda and Kathie Lee, USA Today and Family Circle, NBC's "Today Show" with Al Roker, as well as an interview with AARP.
He lives in Palm Beach, Florida, with his wife and son.
James Patterson currently resides in the state of Florida. James Patterson was born in 1947.

Reviews - What do customers think about Luna de Miel/Honeymoon?
LOVED IT!!! Jul 22, 2008
I have always enjoyed James Patterson and, whomever he is writing with at the time. The character of Nora Sinclair was frightening but human, never enough of a monster to repel the reader, but, just enough of a monster to chill. While, our hero John O'Hara leaves you breathless, he also leaves much to be desired. This novel was JUST RIGHT on all accounts, with a little twist at the end.

honeymoonreview Jun 19, 2008
ive recently began reading james patterson novels and i like how he gives away the killers names in the beginning and not wait til the end of the book to reveal them. with honeymoon I thought at first the tourist was another character and not john o'hara the fbi agent but i picked up on that o'hara was craig reynolds. This part was a little confusing I thought it was too much for one person to play. The blond in the book that was following nora i had no clue who that was til the end shocker! Overall although i like james patterson this isnt one of the books i'd recommend if you like more suspense and murder id give this 3 stars out of 5
Zero stars, reads like a traffic report Jun 6, 2008
Honeymoon by James Patterson & Howard Roughan
Wow. I can't believe this won 2005 International Thriller of the Year. Because it's absolutely awful. Eight years ago, I used to read Patterson, but I just can't anymore. His writing style has turned into something unbearable.
Plot summary: (SPOILER INCLUDED) Olivia Sinclair killed her husband, in front of her six year-old daughter Nora. Arrested and sentenced to life in prison, Olivia convinces everyone that she's mentally incompetent and ends up in a cushy sanitarium. Except, she's just pretending. Meanwhile, tiny Nora ends up getting kicked from one foster home to another until she becomes a black widow, a woman who repeatedly marries and murders her husbands, in the most excruciatingly painful way possible--poison. She ends up transferring a large sum of money and garnering the attention of an undercover cop/agent named O'Hara. He becomes her next victim. (It's okay, he lives.) Anyway, he puts everything together and they finally catch her, but then let her go because if they took her to trial, some very personal CIA/FBI/Dept of Homeland Security info that O'Hara is privy to would come out. So her latest victim's sister ends up poisoning her. Yeahhh. Okay, that was the only enjoyable part of the whole awful book.
What I hated (because I already told you the only part I liked): --Every chapter is less than four pages, no kidding. --Choppy sentences, terse description, and then an entire paragraph devoted to describing a person's appearance, a building's appearance, an airport's appearance, etc. in nauseating detail. --Constant changes in point of view. --A very long list of confusing characters given various nicknames. --No feeling. Seriously, I like reading a story. This wasn't a story. It was like reading a traffic report, just the details, no feeling, and very choppy.
No more James Patterson for me Jun 4, 2008
I think this will be my last James Patterson book. It's my 3rd and so far all of them have been cheesy and predictable. This one was probably the better of the 3, but still I'm left wondering how it is that all of these guys fall for Nora Sinclair and don't figure out she lives 3 different lives. Seems to me they'd eventually get suspicious of her constant travelling and inaccessibiity. As for the FBI's role in all of this drama, I genuinely hope they are not that nieve or dumb. It's hard for me to enjoy and follow a book that seems so unrealistic. And what's with all of the soft-porn scenes? I wasn't aware that I'd picked up a romance novel.
Overall I'll give it a 2 because it did keep me entertained, even though in some cases I was laughing at how ridiculous it got.
Omelette anyone? May 14, 2008
Nora sinclair is a disturbed woman. although i liked the book it left me with some questions that never got answered like what was her purpose? She killed got money but never done anything with it so i didn't understand the point behind it all. The fact that Susan had a little mystery to her was great and so was John's even though i knew from reading what his identities were long before revealed. Overall the book kept my attention but i was expecting more from this celebrated author.
This was my first James patterson book and it won't be my last. I hope to be able to crank out novel after novel like he does some day. I can't imagine how he do it but somehow he does. The next novel i'm planning to take a stab at is the quickie since the commercials had me wanting to read it.
