Questa è la mia storia, ma potrebbe benissimo essere la vostra. Ci siamo dentro tutti, fidatevi. Mi chiamo Max. Ho quattordici anni. Vivo con la mia famiglia: cinque ragazzi coi quali non ho legami di sangue, ma che considero in tutto e per tutto la mia famiglia. Siamo qualcosa di eccezionale. Non vorrei apparire presuntuosa, però non avete mai visto nulla che ci somigli. Siamo ragazzi tosti, simpatici, svegli, tutt’altro che comuni. Noi sei – Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, Angel e io – siamo stati creati da alcuni scienziati. Siamo un esperimento, umani solo al novantotto per cento. Il restante due per cento, però, è determinante, credetemi. È per questo che siamo cresciuti in un laboratorio-prigione chiamato Scuola, in gabbia, come cavie. Un giorno siamo riusciti a scappare. Adesso siamo liberi. Ma le guardie della Scuola - i cosiddetti Eliminatori - ci stanno dando la caccia. Sono pronti a tutto pur di evitare che il mondo venga a sapere di noi. Ma io non mi sono ancora arresa. Lo sto raccontando a voi, no? Questa storia potrebbe riguardarvi o riguardare i vostri figli. Se non oggi, ben presto. Quindi, vi prego, prendetela seriamente. Parlandone, sto mettendo a repentaglio tutto ciò che conta. Ma voi dovete sapere. Continuate a leggere, non permettete a nessuno d’interrompervi...

Now this is a terrible book. Written with all the wit and grace of a one-legged puppy, Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment reveals its intentions within the first chapter alone. This is not a book of striking prose or even serviceable but entertaining MOR lit. It is merely a cash cow, another mindless Leggi tutto
Well that wasn't too bad! You have six kids that are human and have some bird in them. Huh, and all this time I thought they were angels 😄 Goes to show you have to read to know. I'm glad this was on one of my challenge lists because I have wanted to read it. I think I will keep checking them out on Leggi tutto
I want you, the reader, to take a moment and scroll down to the lists this novel has been shelved in. “Best Young Adult Books,” “Best Books Ever,” “What To Read After Harry Potter,” “Best Female Lead Characters,” and “Best Science Fiction & Fantasy Books”. If you haven’t guessed by the titles, these Leggi tutto
Take a bit of the child-like innocence vs. evil of Harry Potter , some of the artificially-created destiny from Ender's Game , throw in the flying fantasies from Eragon and mix them in with Patterson's trademark flippant characterization, and you've got Maximum Ride. This is the book I'm going to reco Leggi tutto
2.5 Stars! “The funny thing about facing imminent death is that it really snaps everything else into perspective.” Well that was fun, i LOVED MAX she was great, annoying at times. but funny, and loving big sister. The writing was okay, The story had potential but was poorly executed.
This book was okay, but I just felt like it didn't have a lot of substance. I didn't really take anything away from it, almost like it didn't have a lot of deep meaning. And it wasn't terribly entertaining, either. I just would have liked the characters to be a little deeper, I guess. I doubt I will Leggi tutto
Do Not Finish at page 145. I want to finish this book, but after a while I remember life is too short for reading one crappy book after another. If I read The Angel Experiment when I was 12 years old, I guess I would have been oh-so impressed. But readers who possess the mental maturity of a 13 years o Leggi tutto
Nothing massively wrong with it but the writing was just way too young for me.
Reader thoughts: Max is a sarcastic and tough teen with amazing wings. She's leader of her flock of bird kids, and they work hard to stay away from the troublesome adult scientists. Max struggles to keep her flock together, discover her destiny, and save the world while she's at it. Finding their par Leggi tutto
One of my students recommended this book, and while I was intrigued by the premise, and the fact that the protagonist is a female action hero, I found the dialogue beyond basic (only an adult would imagine that kids really communicate like this) and the plot was a liitle repetitious. it's part of a
