I have just recently read the book Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment. I thought i was a mysterical, facinating book. I would highley reccommend that you read this book, along with the others in the series! James Patterson, in my opinion, is a good author. He can write for children, teens, or adults. I have never really liked to read, but I read this book, and OMG! I now love to read. So you're probably wondering, is she going to tell about the book or not? Well, I am! Angel gets taken back to the school and well they try to save her, and get her back. But what happens when Max helps a girl named Ella? He has to go to the doctors and they find the chip in his arm, and Max says her life is practiclly over. Then they fight long, and hard to get Angel back, and they finally do! Then they find the Instuitute and they get their parents names and addresses, all but Max does. Was Max really a test-tube baby? Read th other books to find out!  =)

While having an average day at their home, Max and the flock go out to pick strawberries, only for the them to be attacked by erasers. The erasers take off with Angel, so Max, Fang, and Nudge go off to save her. Eventually Iggy and the Gasman have to leave the flocks home, even though Max wants them to stay behind.



They all meet at Lake Mead, but not until Max has had a close run in with death. After leaving Lake Mead and reaching the School and saving Angel, the flock races off on their way to New York City to reach the Institute. Their reasoning for doing so, they want to find out their past, who their parents are, and why they couldnt just have normal lives like any other child their age. Upon the journey, they learn their new traits and what the real world is like. Not only will this occur, but an exciting twist about Maxs unknown life be only partially unlocked in the most exciting twist yet.



This book is an exciting thrill that keeps its readers on the edge of their seats and combines a solid story line with surprising plot twists along the way. It is written in great detail and lets the readers visually feel things as they occur, not only on a physical level, but an emotional one as well.



In conclusion, this book is a highly recommendable one, not only because of the suspense and excitement, but also the wonder and awe. Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment is a family book, as well. This helps it appeal to all age groups and reading levels.

Maximum Ride is exciting! The book is about a six kids who have wings. They were raised in a lab and were kept in a cage. They escaped and lived in the middle of no where for a few years. One day the erasers (the guys who are after them) come to their house and attack them. The book is very action packed. Once I picked it up I never wanted to put it down. I recommend this book to everyone.

This was an amazing book and it dragged me onto the second. I really connected with the characters and felt the pain and stress this book caused for them. There were many suprises throughout the pages and I loved how the chapters were short and easy to finish. I felt it was easier to come to stopping points when you have a busy life as i do. I like how it is written for both boys and girls as the main charcter is a girl, but she comes to many blood battles. Marvelous book, absolutly marvelous! I wish I had wings so I could fly. I felt like I already have.

I first received this book in a summer reading program that is held by a local library of mine. My mother had originally ordered it for my bother, but as I had already read all of my books I was thirsting for more. I picked up this book not knowing what to expect. Within the first day of reading it I was hooked. I would leave it in the living room so that between or after chores it would be right there for me to delve right back into.

After reading this book I realized that the author was a male. This amazed me. He connected very well with what teen girls go through even though it is intertwined with fantasy. As a teen myself I know how hard it is to feel like you don't belong anywhere. That you have nowhere to go, and can't always share your feelings because you have people depending on you. Also that there is always a struggle to prove that we are just as able to do things as boys are. That we can think, care and lead all at the same time.

I really enjoyed this book. I love fantasy, and although it is you don't feel that it is totally impossible. I also love action. I tend to get bored with books easily if they don't stay exciting and this book kept me turning the pages. I also enjoyed that fact that although it is an action/fantasy it still has a little bit of romance in it. This book has so many things in it to keep you guessing. I loved it and I know that if you like action, fantasy, romance and mystery and you need something that will really keep you interest you should definitely give this book a chance.

I picked this book up at the library when I wasn't sure what to read and asked my librarians for suggestions. They said that the Maximum Ride series was very popular. I read the summary and was a bit skeptical about it, but I took it anyways.

At first I wasn't to interested in the beginning of the book, but I kept on reading ( always a good thing ) and the story started to captivate me. So, they were part bird, that was a little weird, but once you get used to it I really started to get into it.

The story is about a "flock " of kids whose DNA was altered in a lab, and they got bird genes injected in them. The lab was called a " School " and was horrible. A caring scientist helped them escape and now they were living on an isolated mountain. The kind scientist disapeared years ago and they had a feeling he died. Then one day altered humans who were part wolf and worked for the school captured the youngest flock member Angel. The leader Max and the rest of the flock go after her, and slowly they past is unraveled. Read the book to find out if The kinda scientist Eb is alive or not.

This book is overall awesome, but it needs some more romance.
It is a do over of an earlier series and is aimed for teens. there is a story by the same author aimed at adults about the same flock.
Check this book series out !

Maximum Ride: the title describes the book perfectly, not to mention introduces the main character of the novel to us. Written as the narrative thoughts of a young girl teen, Max, this book is both hilarious and serious. Warning: there are moments when the thoughts of this quirky teen may bring forth a random burst of laughter and other thoughts may bring forth a lone tear.


The story of a 'flock' on the run: six very different children, brought together as a family because of their genetic composition (98% human, 2% bird) and their past, striving to stay together (and alive) when everyone and everything in the world seems to be against them. Erasers, humans with wolf's genetic component and capable of transforming into their genetic counterpart at whim, are out to get our six comrades. What will happen? That question literally kept me on the edge of my seat for three days in a row, incapable of putting it down for more than a few hours.


I recommend this book to everyone and anyone who likes a good thriller/suspense novel with very modern ideas. I personally loved the 'genetic' spin; it's so 'today'. Anyhow, you read and decide for yourself, it's definitely worth the ride!

I have to be critical. I did really enjoy it, and I thought the idea and the plot-line were refreshingly original, but then again I haven't read When the Wind Blows.

The book: it's about six kids who escaped from a secret lab called "the School". They are 2% bird and 98% human, therefore they have wings, the ability to fly, and several other talents, one of which is telepathy. They are on the run from "Erasers" (mutants who are part wolf part human) who capture the youngest member of the group (Angel) and take her back to the dreaded School. The book is basically about how Max and her friends determine to find her, and so on and so forth.

The characters: Max, the main character who is caring, strong, brave and whatnot; Fang (my favourite) who is described as the "strong and silent type"; Iggy, who became blind when the scientists at the School attempted to improve his night-vision; Nudge, an eleven year old who never shuts up; the Gasman, an eight year old with, er, a problem concerning his digestive system; and Angel, the classic sweet little blonde cherub whom everyone seems to adore, especially Max.

What I think: well, I really liked it. It was action-packed and thrilling, and a real page-turner. I didn't tire of it. The problem is the ending, or lack, thereof. I was quite disappointed by that. It just doesn't finish. It's more like the end of a chapter than of a book, and I was left expecting more. Yes, it's the first in a series, but still...

My advice: buy it, buy it, buy it, and if you don't buy it, READ IT. You won't regret it.
