Quarter 2 blog

James Patterson
Roses are Red
finished book
The antagonist in the book doesn't really have any motivation. The "Mastermind", as he calls himself, is just a freak that likes to kill people in different scenarios. When he does kill someone like he wanted to it satisfies him, but no enough because he still has to go and kill more people. Its like an addiction for him and in the end it ends up being fatal to The Mastermind. The ends do not justify the means, because if he doesnt kill the victims how he planned it out he is not happy at all. He is a very creepy character that is really frightening to picture as a real person.


  1. Did something happen in the characters childhood that made him this way? Its creepy to think that there are people in this world like that.

  2. I like the way you explained the Mastermind's motives. I've read some of these books, and he is a very scary character with no reason to hurt people other than for his own personal amusement. It's appalling to think that people like that could exist.
