Maximum Ride by James Patterson
Book DescriptionWELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE Do not put this book down. I'm dead serious - your life could depend on it. I'm risking everything by telling you - but you need to know. STRAP YOURSELF IN for the thrill ride you'll want to take again and again! From Death Valley, California, to the bowels of the New York City subway system, you're about to take off on a heart-stopping adventure that will blow you away...YOUR FAITHFUL COMPANIONS: Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, the Gasman and Angel. Six kids who are pretty normal in most ways - except that they're 98% human, 2% bird. They grew up in a lab, living like rats in cages, but now they're free. Aside, of course, from the fact that they're prime prey for Erasers - wicked wolf-like creatures with a taste for flying humans. THE MISSIONS: Rescue Angel from malicious mutants. Infiltrate a secret facility to track down the flock's missing parents. Scavenge for sustenance. Get revenge on an evil traitor. And save the world. If there's time.

Book Review: Maximum Ride by James Patterson - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (08 Jul 2011)
The very first book in the Maximum Ride series and probably the best.
James Patterson has done an excellent job reviving which I consider a tired topic. ie. people with abilities.
Aimed to Young Adults this also has enough action to keep Adults entertained.
The plot introduces Maximum Ride and her group of young kids as they try and elude the mad scientists and just want to live the life of normal kids.
The book delves into the conspiracy or their origins and sets up the future series nicely.
The characters are varied and unique I found it hard to put the books down.
Recommended read 8 out of 10
Book Review: Maximum Ride by James Patterson - Reviewed by CMM (14 Dec 2009)
Maximum Ride is a fourteen year old girl with wings, who grew up in a dog crate with the rest of her 'flock'. Their wings are the result of genetic engineering by a group of not very nice scientists at a place called 'the School'. At the start of the book they have already escaped the School and are trying to live life in secret - and that's where everything starts to go wrong.
This book is a great start to James Patterson's first(?) children series. While I wish I read it earlier (say at age 13 or so) Patterson's ability to create a page-turning thriller out of any storyline continues on in Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment.
This book deals with child abuse, neglect, mutation and death. It questions the moral and ethical rights of doing what needs to be done to survive. It shows how smart children are when they need to be, when they are without parents, or an adult in general. It's not ridiculous though, no one is perfect and...
