    1 thought on “The Lake House

    1. The story continues in the second novel of the duology The mystery continues and questions will be answered The flock continues to fight their battles with Dr Kane and so much .It wasn t bad, but it was a huge letdown The main problem would be the execution of the plot It wasn t as amazing as it should ve been Romance overpowered the whole novel The amount was than it should ve been The main story wasn t tackled because of the vast amount of romance building The ending felt so rushed too With l [...]

    2. The Lake House When the Wind Blows, 2 , James PattersonThe Lake House tells the story of six extraordinary children, endowed with the power to fly after genetic engineering merged their DNA with that of birds, and who have to fight for their lives against scientists who want to clone them, producing a race of human bird creatures 2006 1384 273 9648640173 20 .

    3. I ve never before read such a ridiculous, poorly crafted book with such blatant mistakes There was bad writing and overblown language, but the huge problems with details in this book were impossible to ignore.Like the fact that Frannie tells this story as a narrator to an audience, except when there are perspective switches to characters who tell the story in conventional third person And when there are riflemen shooting at the kids, and they shoot down a plane with a regular rifle, not an anti [...]

    4. A book so crap I threw it across the room when I gratefully finished it.I don t remember the first one, When the Wind Blows, being this bad If I had I wouldn t have read this, but I d bought it cheap based on my like of Patterson s Alex Cross series What is so bad about the Lake House Let s start with the title The protagonists spent their time between the last book and this one in the Lake House, and only visit during the epilogue in this book The tagline on the cover Don t read it alone in you [...]

    5. I really enjoyed The Lake House by James Patterson i hadn t read him for a long time so decided to go for it.For me this was a different story to what Patterson usually writes Fantasy which i loved the characters were well read the plot was good kept me turning the pages.The ending was really thrilling could not stop till i finished late last night thoroughly enjoyable will have to read the first in this series to see how it all starts.I loved Max found her to be strong determined she was the he [...]

    6. Yikes Published in 2003 by Hatchette AudioRead by Hope Davis and Stephen Lang.Duration 7 hours, 35 minutes.The Lake House is the story of six bird human hybrids who are created as the result of genetic experiments They all can fly and all have superhuman strength This book is very poorly paced Great chunks of action happen with shorthand writing and then Patterson spends nearly an hour of the 7 1 2 hour book describing two of the characters first sexual experiences The Lake House skips over scen [...]

    7. I don t know what possessed me to not look at the author s name before I picked this book up to read I hate James Patterson s writing I started reading the book, thought to myself that I didn t like the writing style, got about 100 pages in struggling to stay with it and then actually checked to see who the author was I could have kicked myself His books are pathetically simplistic His chapters are all either 2 or 3 pages long The dialogue is so simple that I doubt there are any words of than t [...]

    8. There are strange things going on with this book s ratings here on Only 9% of its readers give it one or two stars How is that possible Look through the reviews and tell me how many four and five star ratings you see Not many Then look at its ratings on Both and use a 5 star rating system, but The Lake House gets a respectable 3.78 here while it gets a dismal 2.3 on Sorry but has it right A whopping 52% of readers who ve rated it on give it only one star Fifty two percent One star I know beauty [...]

    9. James Patterson does it again The Lake House is the follow up to When the Wind Blows, a truly magical tale The story opens with the inevitable court custody battle between Kit and Franny and the parents of the winged children Of course in true Patterson style, there are several layers of subplot and evil doers lurking around every corner There was one flaw a confrontation in the story was a little too neatly resolved.Narrators can make or break an audiobook I ve abandoned them in the past just b [...]

    10. So I picked up this book when I was at the library it was one of those.50 deals Although I knew the name James Patterson, I hadn t read anything of his and totally forgot that he was a suspense writer I thought I was picking up the book of the movie The Lake House with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves, about a romance that took place at a Lake House hadn t seen the movie, but was curious.Well, don t make the same mistake I did You won t get romance here, unless you think two bird people mating is [...]

    11. Fun read, but sequel almost repeat of originalLike most Patterson novels, this one raced along on top of his usual short chapters and fast pace to a relatively satisfying conclusion, although somehow it seemed like the last 15 miles of a 500 mile race were mysteriously eluded But unlike the author s other efforts, there wasn t much original in this story Not only is the cast identical except for the villain to When the Wind Blows namely, Kit, Frannie, and the six bird children , but the plot is [...]

    12. Deep within the Rocky Mountains, Max and five other special kids attempt to be normal All six children live in separate houses, with different adoptive families They are running and hiding from sick and twisted people from The Hospital, though only the eldest, Max, is aware of the people searching for them, she hides it from the other, younger children The children come to trust two outsiders, Frannie and Kit, and begin to believe that they are only safe with them, at a cabin they refer to as Th [...]

    13. Although this novel took me longer to read, on and off, it s also difficult to classify it under genres I kept it as mystery, since I didn t read When the Wind Blows, and since Patterson writes mysteries But it does have sci fi fantasy elements in it, the mad science appeal of Robin Cook s Mutation and horror elements a tiny bit of Dean Koontz So it s a combination of this and that Maybe I should ve read When the Wind Blows first When I do read that book, maybe I can understand it better This is [...]

    14. Six extraordinary children are trying to lead normal lives in the Rocky Mountain countryside They live in different homes, with different families, but there is something powerful that connects them Something that puts them in terrible danger The only time they ve ever felt safe was when they were together in the waterfront cabin they call the Lake House And the only people they ve ever trusted are Frannie and Kit, the couple who rescued them from unimaginable evil once before When that evil res [...]

    15. These are not my favourite of James Patterson novels I find them slightly ridiculous and unbelievable I normally love all of his novels but this and the others in this series just don t do it for me Wouldn t recommend.

    16. it was a fast read, sometimes the switch between how it was narrated was hard to adjust to subject was OK.

    17. This book was similar to the first one but this book got me so surprised and shocked The book has so many unexpected moments especially around the end, I definitely recommend this book and the first one if you like suspenseful books.

    18. What a book and I certainly didn t expect the ending of this book This is the second and last book of the series This is where Fran and kit as to fright for the kids.

    19. A secret laboratory, euphemistically called The School, has been performing illegal genetic experiments on human embryos Most of the experiments failed and resulted in gross abominations, but not all of them Max, Ozimandius, Icharus, Matthew, Peter, and Wendy were created at The School The D N A of the six children was combined with that of birds, resulting in completely viable half human half avian life forms In other words, the children have wings, and all the other equipment necessary for the [...]

    20. I really liked reading this book FBI agent Kit Harrison and veterinarian Frannie O Neill are seen fighting for the custody of their six genetically inclined children Even though Frannie and Kit aren t the biological parents, they have a closer bond to these children and consider themselves their real parents After the trial, the judge decides that the children should be reunited with their biological parents because Frannie and Kit aren t married and could not be accountable for the responsibili [...]

    21. FBI agent Thomas Kit Brennan and veterinarian Frannie O Neill rescued the six Winged children from the School where they lived in appalling conditions and were the subjects of dangerous experiments The octet lived together for four months before they were returned to their biological parents but in that time the children, who had bird DNA mixed into their genetic make up, imprinted Kit and Frannie as their parents Kit and Fran sued for custody and lost but when danger threatened, the children tu [...]

    22. Well I have read many of James Patterson s novels and am usually a fan of his work When I chose this book for a quick pre vacation read I was not expecting the supernatural and was really in the mood for a typical mystery Patterson novel As I began the first chapter of this book it was quite apparent this was not a typical Patterson read But as a fan I decided to continue reading to see where he took me and where we would end up.Well, I have to first say apparently this is a sequel to another bo [...]

    23. Oh no, I hope this book has not put me off James Patterson forever I am a huge fan of the Alex Cross series and a fan of fantasy books among others So, I started off with the series opener, When the wind blows, which I thoroughly enjoyed birdlike, flying kids running from evil men whats not to enjoy Now, back to The Lake House As with all Patterson books there are 100 plus chapters, all about 3 short pages long, which makes it a quick and easy read, which is the only reason I decided to finish t [...]

    24. When I started this book, I found myself checking the cover as I was sure it was Michael Crichton as I was immediately confronted with DNA manipulation and winged cherubs As the story develops Dean Koontz and Stephen King pick up the pen and plunges the reader into horror If you add a little medical and surgical insight from Patricia Cromwell your literary meal is complete The Lake House and its avian twist isn t like any James Patterson book to date The chapters are short and the story flows fr [...]

    25. It seems that a lot of James Patterson s books are either hit or miss with me This was another one that seemed too far fetched for me I got about halfway through it before I decided I wasn t going to bother wasting any time on it It seemed pretty good from reading the synopsis of it, but then when I read it the synopsis was truthful and all but it left out a good deal of the real storyline, for example that the kids in the book are half human, half bird It also states in the beginning of the boo [...]

    26. When I read When The Wind Blows, I discovered a whole new side to James Patterson s writing, and I must say it was a delightful thing to read This sequel, however, sadly falls than a little short of the first book.Well, the first half of the book was fine Gory and sexy and dramatic and suspenseful as it should be, but when it came to the ends of the plot threads, I felt like Patterson just completely lost interest, or was simply out of ideas The first plot ending is hurried and leaves you unful [...]

    27. I wasn t terribly thrilled with Lake House as I was reading it, but when I got to the end, I started flipping back through to see if I had accidentally skipped some pages, or if my copy had a printing error Patterson completely skipped the action he was building up to On one page, the characters are preparing to escape their confinement, on the next, everything is over Not even any explanation of how they got out, or what the bad guys were doing I kind of feel like saying I was cheated with the [...]

    28. The story The Lake House is very good book It is very intriguing throughout the book You start to care about the kids and the troubles they have to deal with and the drama of being a kid growing up and the extra stress that ensues because they are very special When Max the other kids taken away from Kit and Dr O Neill in the beginning of the book and they are given to their parents their trouble only grows and makes things harder for everyone This is a very good book and I would recommend this t [...]

    29. 2 in the When the Wind Blows series.Supernatural thriller Sequel to When the Wind Blows 1998 In the original, Max the flying bird girl and her siblings were menaced by the mad scientists who ran the vile laboratory known as the School, but were helped in escaping by erstwhile narrator Frannie O Neill, a veterinarian, and Kit Brennan, an FBI agent Here, Max and her five siblings are menaced by the mad scientist who runs the vile laboratory known as the Hospital but are helped by erstwhile narrato [...]

    30. Packed with page filling redundancies It had so many possibilities but I remember reading somewhere that his first of the series startled him in being a best seller Obviously he wasn t prepared for that, it s gives me the feeling he did not want to write it and in places it reads as if written by a very untalented teenage girl He saves the story but that s only after it s bored me to tears I would not have continued reading if it hadn t been recommended by a relative the whole series egads , by [...]
