Book Review of The Thomas Berryman Number

The Thomas Berryman Number
reviewed on + 7 more book reviews
Helpful Score: 5

Had heard that this very early Patterson book was one of his best, but I was disappointed. None of the characters was particularly likeable. Berryman was not well enough developed for me to care about him, and other than the reporter who is writing about him -- almost all the other characters had very distant supporting roles. I ended up skimming the book and pretty much looked forward to finishing and not having to pick it up again.
