The Lake House (When the Wind Blows, Bk 2)
The Lake House - When the Wind Blows, Bk 2 Author:James Patterson The memorable story begun in When the Wind Blows continues in this thrilling new novel, and it's one that really soars! Frannie O'Neil, a Colorado veterinarian, knows a terrible secret that will change the history of the world. Kit Harrison, an FBI agent under suspension has seen things that no one in his right mind would believe. A twel... more »ve-year-old girl named Max and five other incredible children have powers we can only dream of. These children can fly. And the only place they will be safe is the Lake House. Or so they believe . . .« less
I enjoyed the content of this book as much as the first one...the "evolution" of the childrens' growth was pretty amazing. The villain couldn't be more menevolent...he has no redeeming qualities. Perhaps the ending was in line with the story but seemed a bit over the top.The story is very imaginative.
Patterson said that these books are his most popular in the world...don't see how. His Murder Club and Alex Cross books are much superior. He remains one of my favorite authors.
I have always enjoyed JAmes Patterson. This book was an interesting and entertaining read. One could not help but fall in love with the main characters in this book. Mr Patterson did well, in drawing his readers in, so that they couldn't put this book down. I read it in 2 days!

A very different book by James Patterson. Six children are made in a Laboratory. .. They are perfect ....they have wings ... and ...they can fly! The writing is terrific and terrifying. Who knows what today's labs are creating. This book could be the headlines of tomorrow. Very different book by a wonderful author.
This book was most definitely not my cup of tea. It may be yours though. I have listened to A LOT of James Patterson's audio books and this one was by far...well...honestly...really inane with very little to recommend it save for the two readers. I suffered through it because it was the only audiobook I had with me on a long drive. Waste of time though. Sorry James Patterson fans.
This is by far my favorite James Patterson book that i have read so far. Read it in one day, couldnt put it down. The things in this book make it seem that it might be able to happen in real life, It just kinda makes you think. (or it did for me anyways.) This is the sequel to "When the wind blows."
