Sorry if I sound arrogant but today I came across some James Patterson's books. They are just plain crap. I don't understand what is the hype about him and why he is qualified as a best seller author. Maybe it's because he writes a lot? I picked 5 random titles on Amazon and read the reviews, one and two stars ratings are overwhelming. For some, I can't read without a massive brain hemorrhage. Stephen King writes a lot too, but look at how good his books are. On the other hand, JR Rowling only wrote one book and it became a massive success.

So that is why I can't seem to understand it. Or maybe I overlook his good books and only see the crappy one?
