Book Review: Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson

Six incredible kids--with no families, no home--are running for their lives. Max, Iggy, the Gasman, Nudge, Fang, and Angel are products of an experiment: they were engineered to fly. And thats just the beginning of their amazing powers. Now they've escaped, and they need to know who made them, whose hunting them, and why they were designed to be superior to all humans.


This novel is absolutely fantastic, and one that will keep you reading late into the night. Max's story, as well as those of her flock, is completely captivating and unforgettable. They are all amazing, and each and every thing they do will surprise you. This book practically turns its own pages. Very original, and so unlike anything I have read before--and trust me, I've read plenty of books.

Patterson utterly amazed me with this novel, in a way that not many authors do. No way is Patterson just for adults anymore! With the Maximum Ride series he has created edge-of-your-seat thrillers that teens won’t be able to put down.
Honestly, this novel is just indescribable! It is so exciting and suspenseful that I literally jumped when certain events occured. The narrator's voice was hilarious; I laughed out loud in the middle of my English class. With a Meg-Cabot-y air of sarcasm, Max sure knows how to tell a story. The voice is strong, the characters are real--its just fantastic. It was a great book, and I can't wait to read the next one!

This book would be great for fans of Meg Cabot's teen flare, Paranormalcy by Kiersten White, and anyone who loves a kick-ass heroine.

Great review! I can't tell yo how much I love this series :) I don't really know anyone else who likes it, unfortunately. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Books 2 & 3 are also amazing, and 4 is okay.

I love the Maximum Ride series. I agree with you, there's nothing quite like it. I put the books on par(if not over) Harry Potter. James Patterson is a fantastic writer and I can't wait for the 6th book which is (ugh) coming out next year!
