This was my first James Patterson book and I must say it was breath taking! I loved ever moment of this book. I really like the concept behind it too. It is a must read!
...I was pulled in by the jacket blurb. What can I say ... it was a weak moment. However, it was really a fun read! Patterson doesn't write down to his audience so all the characters were full blown and the action was great!
I decided to check this book out after reading Patterson's Maximum Ride, as it is based on When the Wind Blows. For whatever reason, Patterson decided to take his characters from When the Wind Blows and The Lake House and revamped them into the story of Maximum Ride. I have to say, I think I like the revamped characters. This book was a decent book with an interesting concept. Basically, there is this big government conspiracy with biotechnology. Nothing new, really. These bad scientists decided to splice human with avian DNA. So we get these bird-children. We also have a rouge FBI agent frequently referred to as "Mulder" and a softy veterinarian as their protectors. Once they all find each other people start dying and other mischief ensues. While it was interesting, it was a bit too dramatic at times for me. On the whole, not a bad beach read, but if you are looking for a good read, I would check out one of Patterson's Alex Cross books....Continua
I'm reading this for a second time so I can read The Lakehouse and the Maximum Ride books that are out now. I'm in love with Max all over again!!
Edit after finished to say: I love this book no matter how many times I read it. I can't wait to read The Lakehouse now....Continua
This was kind of twisted. I can't say that it was the best Patterson I have read/listened to, but I can't say I didn't like it. It took an interesting look at what would happen if men and women genetically enhanced human beings.
