When you’ve been genetically modified to have avian superpowers and responsible for leading a flock of five others like you, settling down is never an option. Especially when everyone expects you to save the world.

Read this if you like: Science fiction, fast-paced action, wry humor, and strong female protangonists.

This book? Da pits. Sorry all loyal Maximum Ride fans, but this book seriously sucks! First of all, James Dashner keeps interrupting himself in all of his sentences. I swear, every other sentence has at least one hyphen or semicolon. Secondly, the chapters are, like, two pages long. Thirdly, you can't 'see' anything. It's too rushed. And finally, the humor is crude and childish. There's seriously a boy named 'The Gasman' because of his gas problems. If I didn't know better, I'd say this was written by an eleven-year-old. And I'm allowed to say that, because I read ALL the time, and I also do a lot of writing, so I know about proper sentence structure and such. Anyway, I guess it would be all right for younger kids, but to me- and my brother- it was pretty much sucky.

Read when the wind blows. It's like a prequel to the series

Maximum Ride is one of my favorite series ever! There is tons of action, with great protagonists and mostly straightforward antagonists. With the plot, it could be a very dark and violent series, but there is so much humor that everything has a light spin on it. Along with the amazing (and age appropriate) humor, there's a streak of romance that grows throughout the series and it captivated me. I absolutely love this series and the characters; I recommend it to everyone!!!!

Maximum Ride is one of my personal favorite book series

DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR. READ THIS SERIES. NOW.

okay, but I still don't get the problem in this book and I've read all books but nevermore and max... HARRY POTTER ROCKS, THOUGH!

While the idea behind this series is wonderful and intriguing, The Angel Experiment falls short of expectations. There's really no plot, and the changing of POVs randomly with no pattern seems silly.
