anyone read him ???

when I was at the TX g2g stopped at a Goodwill on the way home ... not my favorite store ... but I found myself in the book section and found 10 books by this author ...

and I liked what I read on the covers ... hard back books were only $2 a piece so I bought 10 ...

and I get to use my new Oktoberfest book mark ...

they appear to be crime type books which I like ... I also like the tv type movies ... the Law & Orders and CSI's so it seems his style of writing fits right in with these ...

anyone else read him ???

kinda excited ... the 1st one I am gonna read is Survival of the Fittest ...

I had to check the title and make sure you were referring to JONATHAN Kellerman, lol.

I love his books. The 'Alex Delaware' series caught my attention several years ago.

He's a great writer and most of his books capture your attention immediately and continue to hold it!

Never heard of John Kellerman

I started reading him many years ago, and have read most of his books

If you like Kellerman you should read Kirk Mitchell.

He is the heir apparent to the Kellerman style of fiction.

They are good stories with solid writing, but the character of Alex Delaware pings my 'narcissist' button a little. He's a bit too....self-consciously self aware and enlightened yet phonily self-deprecating? I can't describe it.

(secretly hoping ladyv will log in, see this, know what I mean, and nail it perfectly in about seven words)

I actually prefer his wife's books. Faye Kellerman writes the Pete Decker/Rina Lazarus mysteries, and they are quite good.

I LOVE Jonathan Kellerman. I was really bummed when I read about Robin (You will know what I mean when you read more of the Alex Delaware novels). I stopped reading his Alex novels for a while I was so pissed about it.

His wife, Faye Kellerman, is really good, too.

and now their son, Jesse Kellerman has written a couple. That apple didn't fall too far from the tree....

If you like Alex Delaware, try Steven White's Allan Gregory series set in Boulder. Must be the psychologist in them...they are both so...understanding...

I was on a Jonathan Kellerman kick for a while.

I really like his books.

I find Faye kellerman OK. I prefer her husbands books, though.

I will have to look for their son's books.

I read "Bad Love" and thought it was one of the worst books that I had ever read.


I thought I wanted a career, but I discoved that I just like paychecks.

I have read all of Jonathan Kellermans books. I LOVE HIS STUFF!!!! The Alex Delaware are my favorite ones, but he has some that branch off of the same crew that are based on a female Detective named Petra..Connor? I think is that last name, but they are really good as well. I am one who has to go from the beginning so as to not miss anything along the way, so I looked him up and wrote down in order all the Alex Delaware novels and then checked them out one by one from the lobrary or bought them from used book stores.
