Action and Adventure

Action and Adventure August – James Patterson – The Angel Experiment (Maximum Ride 1)

My knowledge of Maximum Ride came from students begging to be first in line when new books of the series were released (I think there are now 8).  So, I expected it to be good because normally I like what they like.  How wrong I was!  This book was so disappointing, the characters were not likeable, their language was too mature for their age and the story seemed to go nowhere.  Maybe it is developed in the rest of the series but I don’t have the motivation to read anymore.  Certainly there is action, lots of fight scenes between the goodies (Max and her “family”) versus the baddies (the Erasers) but it was predictable and didn’t assist in character or storyline development.  I was somewhat dismayed I felt this way until I read other reviews (Goodreads) which seem to echo my view.  Oh well, on to something else.
