The guy farms out his writing and you don't think he sucks? If he's
not good at putting together the words, then he should be called an
inventor or a manager, not a writer. Stories are a dime a dozen, it's
putting them together in prose that makes literature. Mind you, I have
not read Patterson so I can't comment on his prose. I'm just reacting
to your description.
