Genre: General Fiction
Where I got it: Brooklyn Public Library (ebook)
You know, just when you think Patterson can only write one kind of book, he writes a sweet book like Sam's Letters to Jennifer. I was pleasantly surprised with this story.
It took me a few pages to really get into the plot. I had no idea that there was going to be a slight suspense aspect to it at all. Patterson works his magic that got me hooked on any of his other books. The chapters are a little longer than his books normally have, but we get to read a little bit of Sam's letters every few chapters or so. The letters always end on an interesting cliffhanger.
While Sam remains in a coma in the majority of the book, you fall in love with her. Probably even more than you actually like Jennifer. It's hard to like her with all of the emotions that she is going through. The subject matter is pretty sad and there are some tear jerking moments, but the story is overall enjoyable and entertaining. Oh, and addictive, like Lifetime movies.
