"Exile" seems to be more of the same (plus his editors have started to join the decline into incompetence that currently afflicts the rest of the publishing industry; just too many typos, inconsistencies, factual errors and badly-worded phrases). And who the hell let Mr. Patterson give not one, not two, but THREE major characters similar last names starting with "O?" I realize he wants to be "authentic," and that many African names start with "O," but there are many that do not. No one would publish a novel with major characters named Murphy, Murphree and Mumford (unless the similarity was germane to the plot), so why do the same with African names?
I used to say that current American novelists could be divided into two groups: Richard North Patterson and everybody else. I will give him one more try after this, but if he puts out another novel that fails to tell a good story while preaching about the evils of something Mr. Patterson hates, I'm done.
