Review: Maximum Ride
Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson
This is the YA series based on the adult books written by James Patterson (such as The Beach House). Though the characters are different, the premise is the same...6 kids against the world, challenged by the fact they are 98% human and 2% bird.
I thought this was an interesting beginning to the series, and features likeable and diverse characters from a YA standpoint, though I found the ending abrupt and REALLY open-ended...Patterson didn't even try to hide the fact that a sequel was coming.
An interesting no-quite-sci-fi read...
Note: I listened to the audio version, narrated by Evan Rachel Wood. Great voice and great musical cues make this 4-disc set a snappy listen.
