Book review: <i>1st To Die</i> by James Patterson


the cover of the book

Why do I do it to myself? No, really, why? The only saving grace is that it was over in a couple of hours... oh yes, and I get a kick out of reviewing trash every now and again.

Well doesn’t time just fly? Just a quick catch up entry to keep you all fully informed about our doings around the exotic location of Nicaragua. What Dave and I are finding bizarre and freakish is that firstly, we have been here for just over eight months, (where does the time go?) and it’s now easier to work out how many weeks we have left here as opposed to my earlier entries which were how many weeks we had been here for.
