    • You can also see my review @ readrantrockandroll/2018/Katie and Matt had the perfect relationship. They had much in common and a completeness, but when Matt suddenly leaves the relationship, Katie is left with many questions and wonders what went wrong. Matt is someone Katie could’ve shared the rest of her life with. How could she have been so wrong about their relationship?Not long after Matt’s departure, she receives a package in the mail. She recognizes Matt’s handwriting on the package [...]


    • This book was the worst I've read. I actually felt less intelligent when I finished it. I feel empathy for people who think this is quality writing. Put it this way, the book was so bad that the movie was better. I actually liked the movie a lot, which means it wasn't the story, it was the author. Patterson needs to stick to mystery or whatever he does Did I mention I didn't like this book at all?


    • Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas is an amazing love story, for me it was a page turner that I read in less than 24 hours (quite a feat with a nursing baby)! It is an incredible fictional love story set in New York and Martha’s Vineyard. Part of the book includes experiences from the author’s life. It starts out with Katie, whose lover of 11 months, Matt, (from whom she thought a marriage proposal imminent), unexpectedly leaves with no explanation. He sends Katie an apologetic letter, saying he i [...]



    • I've read more of James Patterson's novels than I care to admit, and from what I've observed, their general pattern is a little bit of exposition followed by some drama and suspense, which is mostly boring or unbelievably contrived (or both), followed by some sappy, overly-sentimental, unimaginative, and highly predictable denouement. Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas is a deviation from Patterson's mode of operation in the following respect: it isn't suspenseful or even remotely thrilling. Not even [...]


    • I still rue the day I picked up this book from the library and even more, reading the first page. The overly-contrived plot contains unbelievably "perfect" characters and comes off as just hokey and ridiculous. Oh, how I regret reading to the end. The sappy sentimentality. The over-the-top crude attempts at "tear-jerker moments." I resent James Patterson's theft of the three hours of my life it took to read this (although it would have been less had I not kept putting it down to debate whether t [...]


    • I know opinions vary hugely about this book but I have got to say I really enjoyed it! I must also admit I only read it for a Xmas Challenge - read a book with the name Nicholas in the title:)In my opinion Patterson took his skills at writing suspense and applied them to a romance instead. There were his short, choppy chapters which always end in such a way that you are forced to go straight on to the next one. Then there was the actual suspense - the fact that the reader has to wait until the v [...]


    • What's french for yuck? Eek. Or ew. Guys, this book is taking the cheese and the melodramatic Hallmark imprint to a whole new level. My God, my teeth hurt from all the saccharine, and I actually feel my pregnancy hormones getting pissed. This is why I shouldn't ever read another romance written by a man, even Nicholas Sparks in his worst moments is less sappy. Yuck. Mister Patterson, please, stay to the creepy mass murderers, thank you.


    • Katie, a book editor in New York, has been left by the man that she hoped to marry someday. Matt, a poet from Martha's Vineyard, drops off a diary by Katie's door to help her understand his actions. His first wife, Suzanne, wrote this diary to their son Nicholas, telling him about her move to Martha's Vineyard, falling in love with his father, and the happiness she found in motherhood.When Suzanne had health problems, a friend told her a story about getting better balance in one's life. Life is [...]


    • I absolutely LOVED this book from start to finish.Katie Wilkinson has found the love of her life and couldn't be any more in love with Matt if she tried. Matt is a writer and a house painter and he is also very much in love with Katie. But then one day out of the blue Matt disappears with no explanation and Katie is left wondering what went wrong when things were so perfect between the two of them. Then Katie finds a package on the front door step which turns out to be a diary left by Matt. With [...]


    • I have never read any James Patterson books and after reading this one I don't think I'll ever read another. There were so many things wrong with this book I don't know where to begin. This book is a love story, and I usually love a good romance, but it was so saccharine-sweet it made it unbelievable! I didn't find it at all touching, okay, maybe when the second twist was revealed, but everything before and after that was so sappy and overly sentimental that it was hard to stand. Thank goodness [...]


    • All I know is that it was a love novel written by a man. Yep, this didn't work out one bit. Basically it felt like a book written by one of the guys off of "This Old House." Damn they are good with building things but expressing love and the intricacies of the heart yeah no. Stick to his crime novels because this one leaves you wanting to kick yourself in the balls for even had read it, if that was possible.


    • I get why so many people like this - so no shade to all the people who recommended it to me.But it did not work for me at all.I know the diary was supposed to make Suzanne endearing because of how positive, happy, and kind she was, but I ended up hating her and all the other characters in this book before the big reveal.- Nicholas was a super baby. I kept thinking, "Suzanne's either crazy or a pathological liar and she's just writing crap down because NO baby can do this stuff this early" (this [...]


    • I read this one on a plane and at some point the stewardess came up to my row and gave me tissues. If a book is written well or talks about a touchy subject, I can be a tad emotional. This book did it for me. Im used to Pattersons murder mystery novels so this was a definite change from the norm. I would say I probably prefer the murder mysteries over the sappy stories but he did a pretty good job with this one.**************************************James Patterson, author of such bestsellers-tur [...]


    • Book on CD narrated by Becky Ann BakerZERO stars (but I'll give Baker 1 star for her narration)Quick, I need a blood glucose test to be sure I haven’t developed diabetes! Think Nicholas Sparks and Robert James Waller, but nowhere near so good – and that’s saying a lot, as they aren’t all that great. This is just too awful for words. Patterson is shamelessly cashing in on the trend for male authors to write saccharine tear-jerker love stories. Kate has just been dumped by her perfect boyf [...]


    • This book is my ALL-TIME favourite book :) I absolutely love it. James Patterson has done a brilliant job with the story and its presentation. I've read this book a thousand times. It makes you think about a 101 things related to life and its twists & turns. The story helped me understand that life is not always sweet, not always fair and things do not always turn out the way we want them to. But if we are patient and just keep going - we'll eventually find things that are sweet, that are fa [...]


    • This was a very fast read. I wanted to read a sappy book, and this was sappy at its worst form. However, that being said, I like my sap to be a little more realistic. I want sap that resonates with real life, not one that is so full of perfect people that it never comes across as true.There were so many things wrong with this book. I hate reading books that I am picking apart as I read them and this book was like that from start to finish. The book title was a bit misleading for me. I thought th [...]


    • I might have become a bit cynical or too realistic, but this book didn't hit me as strongly as the last time. Although it's a quick read and it did make me welled-up to some extent, the overall writing (except for Matt's diary part) felt rushed and inconsistent, the dialogues don't flow naturally at times.I picked up this book for a reading challenge where I read a tear-jerker book, but this time around, it kind of fell flat for me.


    • Predictable garbage trying to be deep and passionate. NO! Truly awful writing. Never cared an ounce for the charters. Patterson has written about 800 books. He should really think about quality first. AVOID!


    • I have some pet peeves when it comes to books. One of my pet peeves is "perfect" (and therefore unrelatable) characters. But Patterson is quite a trickster- making you think that at least one of these characters has a fatal flaw. But nope. In the end we discover that all characters were perfect after all- perfect looking (well, there is the one girl who thinks she's too tall. Like a model), perfect acting (always thoughtful, always kind, always good-humored, open and loving and talented with goo [...]


    • And here I thought that LDS fiction was bad. Wow. This book is what happens when an old guy who writes suspense tries to write a book about a thirty-something woman's love story. Wow. So bad. So, so bad. I feel used. Words like: ravishing, french braid, blouse and goof (as in Matt and Katie used to ride the circle line as a goof.) have no place in a book written in the 2000's. Emotional Manipulation at it's highest and most nauseating. The only thing I can think that would come close to rivaling [...]


    • "Neizmjerno sam voleo Suzan. Nema tih reči kojima bih ti preneo šta znači kad te zadesi sreća da nađeš ženu koju možeš toliko da voliš, a koja ti, što je čudo nad čudima, uzvraća ljubav istom merom. Ona je bila najvelikodušnija osoba koju sam sreo, blagonaklona i osećajna. Ono što mi se kod nje najviše dopadalo jeste što je umela da te sasluša. I duhovita je bila. I sada bi izvalila neku šalu. Siguran sam da bi. Možda to i čini. Smeškaš li se sada, Suzan? Voleo bih da je [...]

    • I first find James Patterson's way of telling a love story in the movie version of Sundays at Tiffany's, where its story is very much different with Capote and Audrey Hepburn. It was about the spirit of a man taking into human shape, given a mission to make a woman happy, but fell in love eventually, torn between his mission for another and his mission for reaching happiness.In my personal way of browsing the shelves of Book Sale in Market-Market, I was lucky to have found this book. Compromisin [...]


    • This was the worst book ever! I was so extremely disappointed. I hate those sappy sad cancer books, and this was just like it, only this time with childbirth and heart attacks! :P Terrible. Unless you like those kinds of stories I only finished it so I could find out why the guy dumped the girl, anything more is a spoiler alert. The secret was a long and tedious read through a woman's diary that she wrote to her baby. Gag. The one redeeming quality was the life lesson of the "5 balls." Basically [...]

    • I disliked this book so much that I created a new bookshelf for it on my account - yuck. While I was reading it (only because it was a book club pick), several adjectives came to mind - sappy, corny, preditible, shallow, uninteresting, flat. I can't think of one good thing to say about this book. It reads like an overly sentimental Hallmark movie, yet without the Hallmark charm. It amazes me that James Patterson, who is a popular author, could write such an undeveloped, grossly sophmoric book. A [...]
