If you have noticed, I had not been posting book reviews for quite a while, which is quite saddening. Well, thankfully, I’m back with another pastime favourite, Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment!
Written with a lot of cracky jokes, this book has the humorous charm that keeps the reader entertained and has the action that thrills the reader to read more. So I have to say James Patterson really sweated blood to make this masterpiece!
So basically, in this book, we learn more about mutants, like the X-men of some sort, which is really interesting as I hadn’t got any proper story of what mutants are. Well, the type of mutants this book is dealing with are avians, who had been genetically modified in the treacherous ‘School.’ Thus, destroying their normal human selves and turning them into human freaks.
Max and her flock had seen the treachery for quite a long time but had finally escaped the ‘School’ and now live in the peaceful mountains in an unknown region. For 4 years, they had not been discovered by the mad scientists of the Schools or the Erasers, genetically enhanced humans who could morph into wolf-like brats, who could lay their fingers on avians, only to take little damage.
The flock, for the first 2 years were taken care by a runaway scientist called Jeb, who helped them escape. However, he mysteriously disappeared. Assumed dead, the flock lives by themselves in the lush mountains!
Unfortunately, when the Erasers make a sudden appearance on the Flock’s doorstep, they ambush them and successfully kidnap the flock’s youngest member, Angel.
With the Flock on the chase for their lost one, we learn more about this witty gang and the war against the mad scientists. Trust me, it’s very exciting. So just read it!
