Maximum Ride: The Angel ExperimentHey, everybody!
So, I'm back from my hiatus (as you can see)! I'm going to sort of change up what I do on here, so... I'll let you all know when and what changes will take place! For now, here's a review of Maximum Ride!
Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment
Author: James Patterson
In James Patterson's blockbuster series, fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride, better known as Max, knows what it's like to soar above the world. She and all the members of the "flock"--Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel--are just like ordinary kids--only they have wings and can fly. It may seem like a dream come true to some, but their lives can morph into a living nightmare at any time...like when Angel, the youngest member of the flock, is kidnapped and taken back to the "School" where she and the others were experimented on by a crew of wack jobs. Her friends brave a journey to blazing hot Death Valley, CA, to save Angel, but soon enough, they find themselves in yet another nightmare--this one involving fighting off the half-human, half-wolf "Erasers" in New York City. Whether in the treetops of Central Park or in the bowels of the Manhattan subway system, Max and her adopted family take the ride of their lives. Along the way Max discovers from her old friend and father-figure Jeb--now her betrayed and greatest enemy--that her purpose is save the world--but can she?
I have to start out by saying that this book was great!
I got this book when I was about in sixth grade, and I’ve read it over and over so much that the front cover (paperback) is about to tear off. I doesn’t help that my sister is always reading it, too.
Back when I first read it, I was all into the adventure/ paranormal genres, though now I’m not. Even though I prefer romantic genre books, I still love this book! This was one of the first actual novels I’d read, and it was a great first to start out with!
I enjoyed reading about the main character, Max’s plight in trying to save her little sister, and try to protect and keep the rest of her family together.
I hope that anyone who wants to read an adventure/paranormal story that isn’t necessarily based solely on one gender, reads this book!
Also (hint, hint) I hear that they may make this into a movie, so if you want to start it before everybody else starts reading it, then there you go.
