Most despised popular fiction author?

Post by OdinofAzgard » Tue Oct 10, 2006 12:47 pm

For me, James Patterson and his dumbass Alex Cross hero. A friend gave me a couple of Patterson's Alex Cross books and the only good thing about them were the villians.

Nadir was the chapter ending with Cross being told, "They've found a body." We later learn the "body" is still alive and kicking, the young woman having escaped the clutches of the villian. And although the bad guy takes great delight in taunting the cops, apparently it occurs to none of them that the woman may still be in danger and they're taken by surprise when she's re-kidnapped.

The worst.

This honor has to go to Dan Brown, the author of "The Da Vinci Code".

He wrote the book as a fiction, but marketed it as a true story. A brilliant scam!

I agree I hated that book but the one before that was good.

Just about every romantic fiction author should get this "Most despised popular fiction author" title.
