    One thought on “You've Been Warned”

    1. YOU'VE been warned to avoid this book. First half was decent and then it started falling apart. Nope!! Not for me. Very disappointed.

    2. "COME HERE, MATE "You and your stupid fucking airport novels. Fucking lame titles. Can't even write a book without collaborating with someone else. "James Patterson featuring some douchebag you've even never heard of before". Mate, I could find more passion in a fucking Big Mac!!!And the apologists are like, "Well, James Patterson's just a bit of harmless fluff. Like, you know, it's really good beach reading". What is this Beach Reading bullshit? Someone make a rule, did they? That if you choos [...]

    3. The worst book he has written. Don't waste your time unless you have nothing else to do. Very disappointed

    4. From a blog post I wrote in 2007:If you're expecting You've Been Warned by James Patterson and Howard Roughan to be a 'typical' Patterson book, you're going to be disappointed.Sure, there are short chapters and a first person narrative. But, other than that it's not at all what you'd expect. The story revolves around a young woman in New York City who's got secrets in her past and present, obsessions for her camera and her married boyfriend, serious nightmares and who sees dead people. It's supe [...]

    5. Wow, after reading the reviews on this book I'm shocked!I really enjoyed this book and read it in a few hours, I couldn't put it down! Everyone else thinks differently tho. I think alot of people were disapointed with the ending. I loved it. It makes you think and lets you solve some of the things yourself. I'm torn on reading reviews because there are so many people that just tell you what the story is and how it is going to end. The last book I read I had a hard time getting through because I [...]

    6. this book really confused me from page one, but i couldnt put it down! i read it in a day, and i'm still not sure why i did. the main character in the book is a woman having an affair with a father that she works for as a nanny. she's not extremely likable, and yet i still kept turning the pages!! i think i just wanted to figure out where it was all going. there's all kinds of dead people talking to her, showing up in her pictures (she's a photographer), etc. and it turns out, she's having a pre [...]

    7. The best way I can explain this book is that it is a really poor attempt at creating a story that would do The Twilight Zone or M. Night Shamalan proud. It fails on most accounts as it becomes a novel that is bogged down in an ability not to ramble on and on.Kristin, a young nanny from Boston who moved to New York three years earlier, finds herself truly in love with Michael. He is sweet, romantic, and everything she could ever want and more. The problems is that "more" is his yuppie wife Penle [...]

    8. *** WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS **** This is one of those books where I'm not quite sure what to make of it. Yes it's a cool story and has tons of potential, but there was something about it that just got under my skin. Maybe it was the unanswered questions or should I say, it was my WTF questions Penleigh hired a private detective to see if her husband was cheating on her. He was. With the nanny, Kristen. So what does Penleigh do? Sets Kristen up on a blind date with the guy Penleigh is cheating [...]

    9. A highly awarded 5 stars for "You've Been Warned" - I love these typically quick, fast paced, easy to read chapters that nearly always end in a cliff hanger. James Patterson has wrote many, many books and I've read a lot of them and can honestly say his books are always fab, he is a just a master at this genre. This standalone written with Howard Roughan is an excellent supernatural psychological suspense thriller that has you hooked from the start, it was chilling in parts and keeps you guessin [...]

    10. Oh. My. God. This book was so odd! It was unlike any other Patterson novel I have read. I think this is one of his books that you will either love or hate. Personally, I really liked it. The supernatural twist is definitely new for Patterson and I thought he handled it well. The only way I can even begin to describe it would be Twilight Zone meets Patterson.As usual, the chapters were short and sweet and always seemed to end with some sort of a cliffhanger. This made me want to continue reading [...]

    11. I hate to say it, but this one barely gets a star. Can't believe that Patterson let this one out on the shelves. To all you James Patterson fans: skip it!

    12. I'm a big Patterson fan. I've liked everything of his that I've read so far with the exception of 'The Lake House' and it appears that this will have to be one of those books that I didn't really like all that much. 'You've Been Warned' follows the actions of selfish photographer/nanny Kristin Burns as she has an affair with the father of the children she takes care of. Soon things start to unravel as strange things happen and she starts hearing this tune she can't get out of her head. She also [...]

    13. Patterson's trashiest, sloppiest adult novel to date. So bad, I gave up after reading only six of the 100+ chapters. On the other hand, the writing is so simplistic that it might be good for ESL students. You've been warned, indeed!

    14. Love most of James Patterson's books. And this one will grab you from the start and won't let you go until the end--and even then you'd still be wondering Did that really happened?Oh yeah, it leaves you in suspense.A tantalizing read. Would recommend to all suspense-lovers.

    15. Minor Spoilers:I know people are going to look at my three-star rating and go "What on Earth was he thinking?! This book was terrible!" Oh, well. :) This book follows the story of Kristen Burns, an aspiring photographer who is, in reality, a nanny who is having an affair with the children's husband. What starts out as a dream spirals into a convoluted story of Kristen having macabre dreams and meeting up with people who should be long deceased. So really, it's nothing like the dust jacket says. [...]

    16. Kristin, an upcoming photographer and nanny, is a woman that has endured tragedy in her life and so it's no wonder that she's a psychotic; Her father committed suicide when she was little, her pediatrician molested her when she was pre-teen and no one believed her until another teenager spoke out, she gave birth to a son and he died in her arms and now she keeps having the same reoccurring nightmare and her photos keep showing images that appear "ghost-like" and now she's seeing people who from [...]

    17. Wow. Talk about a disappointing book.This is written from a first person standpoint and some of the things the main character says (or thinks) are ridiculous. The main character is a 26-year old woman. I'm only 18 and even I was like " what?" at how much James Patterson relies on overused stereotypes and flat out awkward phrases he thinks are appropriate for her age bracket. On the flip side, the other half of the book (in which she doesn't sound like a vapid airhead), she seems like a retiree. [...]

    18. I picked this book b/c this is one of many book genres I like to read. "You've Been Warned" is a quick and intriguing read about a young photographer/Nanny(Kristin), who like all of us has made some mistakes and choices that she should not of made. Kristin is an aspiring photographer - she is also plagued by serious nightmares and is carrying on a forbidden love affair w/h a married man - her boss's husband. I read this in a few hrs time, and did not want to put it down b/c I was intrigued by wh [...]

    19. Now what was the book about again? Can't remember, can only remember that it wasw what again???? As the great Dorothy Parker said,"Not a book to be set aside lightly, it should be tossed away with great force."

    20. I was very disappointed with this book. Poorly written and hard to follow. Seems like his Alex Cross and Woman's murder club series are the only good books he writes anymore.

    21. The most ridiculous story I've ever read. I hated this book so much I've stopped reading James Patterson who I used to enjoy.

    22. What an odd book. I'd rate it a solid 3.5 stars, if I could, but because the suspense was riveting, I'll round up for . We are following our MC Kristen who is the nanny for two children in Manhattan. We also discover that she's having an affair with the husband/father of the family. But suddenly weird things start to happen to her--she has a recurring nightmare, she sees dead people, and she relives a tragic event in her past. The book now becomes very confusing, which supports the story and is [...]

    23. A Real let down for meSorry to Say.This book was a real let down for me. It was not what I expected. I had hoped for a thrilling mystery in You've Been Warned, but all I got was a big disappointment. I have been a regular fan of James Patterson and have enjoyed many of his previous books. However, this story fell apart about mid way through and it was a struggle for me to finish it. Overall, I'd have a hard time recommending this novel to my friends. I wish I didn't have to say that about this f [...]

    24. I found this book confusing. At first I thought the narrator was phychic, then I thought she was crazy nuts. The ending wrapped the book up in a tidy little package, but the getting there was painful for me. The narrator was a very troubled woman who spends the book making bad decisions which is where I thought the book title came from. I got a bit lost in the timeline trying to figure out what was real and when it happened. This is not a book to read when you are tired. You need your wits about [...]

    25. Did not finish - not sure if it's the audiobook or the actual storyline, but I just cannot get into this one. Normally I love a good audiobook driving to/from work and I made it through the first disc, but not for me apparently.

    26. "Boy, this guy doesn't half go on"."I heard that, smartarse!!! And, for your information, I was just about finished. Since has a 20,000 character-limit with these reviews I've had no choice but to make two separate ones".I've never done this before, and my brain is still trying to process the fact that I've now rated two versions of the same book. But if anyone comes across this review, and doesn't know what the hell I'm talking about - the first part of this shit can be found here: /review/sh [...]

    27. ONE STAR BUT 100% WORTH READING.Wow. I picked this up on the recommendation of the I Don't Even Own A Television podcast, and powered through it in maybe three hours total. It's like a parody of trashy airport thrillers, with all the one-note characters and clichés amplified by an awkward conversational inner monologue and a main character who is easy to despise. Every twenty pages or so I folded down the corner of a page to bookmark where cringeworthy and laughter-inducing passages were. The p [...]

    28. This was a very different read for me! I just finished reading The Murder House which was so good! I was looking forward to another James Patterson book.It was very suspenseful and a bit of something else. Almost reminded me of something Stephen King would write.I have to say after awhile I was really starting to dislike the main character. She had me cringing so many times I was ready to finish this book. It’s worth it to get to the end of this one because only when you get to the end does it [...]
