Bestselling Authors I Think are Overrated
Her books have turned into a tiresome soap opera revolving around Scarpetta's obsession over her niece Lucy. Scarpetta fails to realize that Lucy is a big girl responsible for her own mistakes. BORING.
Grisham is a wonderful storyteller through 3/4 of the book. His endings since A Time to Kill have been contrived or unbelievable.
The Celestine Prophecy is soon to be a movie. My big question is WHY?????? One dimensional characters, stilted dialogue, predictable plot twists makes for a poor read. I have to give credit to this modern snake oil salesman--he has taken in thousands of gullible readers.
I'll continue to focus on books for the next week or so. Let me know your good/bad books and authors. Feel free to disagree.
