117 Days of James Patterson – Day Thirty-Three

Day 33, Chapter 33

What better way is there to observe Memorial Day than by reading a 367-word chapter about the Iraq War in a James Patterson novel? (Seriously, what are the chances?)

It turns out that Pete “WCF” Gordon was an Army Captain in Iraq – he saw some horrible shit, his friend Kenny (“a good American son and soldier”) got killed, so now Pete is murdering mothers and their children in the United States. Makes perfect sense to me.

What else can I say to that?  Like the man himself, I’m keeping today’s chapter short and concise. Enjoy your Memorial Day.

Go to Day 34.

    What are the chances! That is a kind of sickening non-logical explanation for his behaviour though…

    So he actually seeks out infants to kill? I'm finding this a stretch, even for a “writer” as inept as JP.

    I'm gonna say…he's murdering the babies so they don't have to grow up and go to war. And he's murdering the mommies so they'll quit having babies?

    Wow, now that I see him as a well-rounded multi-dimensional character with real wants, desires and motives, I kind of empathize with him when he shot that baby EXECUTION STYLE. Don't get me wrong, I still think it's iffy behavoir to shoot a baby, but I appreciate the nuances of the situation. I feel kinda confused, actually. Patterson, you devil dog you! What game are you playing with my heart?
