Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman e Angel. Sei ragazzi apparentemente normali, ma che in realtà nascondono un segreto: sono al 98 per cento umani e al 2 per cento uccelli. Sono cresciuti in un laboratorio, e hanno vissuto gran parte della loro vita come topi in gabbia, ma adesso sono liberi. Con l'aiuto di Jeb, un adulto dal passato misterioso, si sono nascosti in una casa-rifugio, dove hanno istituito una comunità della quale il capo è Max, una sedicenne coraggiosa e matura. Dal giorno della loro fuga, però, gli Eliminatori, perfidi mutanti simili a lupi mannari, danno loro la caccia, e ora hanno catturato la più piccola del gruppo, Angel...

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
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.
This is a really terrible book. It's even worse than the whole Twilight and Eragon series combined together. The plot is extremely obnoxious, it features cardboard characters, and it has awfully absurd twists. It's dialogues are really horrible, like an old man trying very hard to sound young. this b 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
