Jack And Jill By James Patterson A Book Report

Everybody I know who reads, seems to be a big fan of James Patterson. I have now read at least one of his books. I must say that I am not such a fan. While it is true his chapters are short and easy to read. He did no jump right in to the action. I instead found myself suffering through most of the book. It was a struggle to read and my sister told me to just give up on it several times. I am glad I stuck with it however. The last few chapters were mind boggling and fun to read. The action finally picked up three quarters of the way through the novel. The pages could not turn fast enough at that point. Alas this was not true until the end however. I must write a review on the entire book. That will be a struggle. He is a good writer, that is for sure. He is a popular one too. It seems I run in to one or more that one of his book s at every turn. I cannot deny his popularity. What I can deny is though my love for this book. I was not enthralled or even enticed. I was simply satisfied and I will try again to read the several others of his books I already bought. Alas this one was not a winner. I must give it a low grade and hope that I do not loose to many fans as a result. I am a critic though true and true and must be true to my self above all else. Grade C+

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
