Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson

Patterson's first attempt at writing a young adult sci-fi thriller -- was it a success? I don't know!!

Max and the rest of her flock have escaped from a laboratory in which they were made to be 98% human and 2% bird. Not only can these kids fly, but many also have other special abilities. After being rescued by Jeb, they are soon discovered by a pack of Erasers (another genetically enhanced bunch) and they are on a run for their life, initially to save one of their own and then to save themselves and to discover the truth of their past.

Like all of Patterson's novels, it is a quick and easy read. It can be fun and a great read for those looking for a short adventure, but I will warn you . . . the ending will leave you hanging and make you want to find out more by reading his sequels. I'm definitely interested in reading more, but they are not at the top of my must-read list at this time! As for my initial question . . . was his first in this genre a success? I still don't know! I liked it, but it was not great or outstanding in any way. Maybe the sequels will give the story a little bit more umpf!!

Want another opinion?
