A Book Review by clara
in my bedroom, trying to write.
Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson was really good! I have heard about this series for the longest time, and I was so glad I finally got to read it.
This book is about six kids who are 98% human and 2% bird. This means they have wings and good eyesight. They are also stronger than regular kids, with special powers such as mind-reading and breathing underwater. Together, as a family, they run from the evil Erasers--wolf-like people that are the results of genetic experimenting, like the bird kids. Max, or Maximum Ride, is the leader of the six children. In this book, the youngest of all of them, six-year-old Angel, is kidnapped by the Erasers and taken to the lab where they were originally created--or made into what they are now.
Worried and distraught, Max decides to go rescue Angel. For this she brings along two of her "family" (none of them are actually related except for Angel and an eight-year-old boy called the Gasman) Nudge and Fang. This book tells of how they rescue Angel and then even dare to find out who they were before they became a genetic mistake.
Overall, I would give this book four out of five stars, because I wish the author had cut it off in a different place; for instance, right after they rescued Angel. Also, the writing was a little messy in parts, but I think James Patterson has created a strong, funny character in Maximum Ride.
Hope to read more soon!
