This book was hard to get into at first, but it's overlying theme of internet overload and protecting the earth was difficult to avoid. The author stated his case and the book leaves you with many questions.
The author, who also wrote "Game of Sunken Places," is a master story teller. The story takes a bit to get into; the swearing and "valley speak" were heard to get past. You are quickly immersed in an America of the future in which everyone is hardwired to the internet and are constantly bombarded with consumerism and dull entertainment. A not-so-unique spin on an old sci-fi theme, but it has its eyebrow raising moments.
This book is great for a scifi fan over 15 yo. The language is very rough and, due to the lack of ability to communicate effectivly, much of the characters' emotions are inferred.
As a bigger person in a skinny world, I was interested by the title and wanted to see if my view was the same as "Ginny's".
The story progresses through some troubles, some decisions, and some changes that make this a wonderful story. It allows the reader to see the world from a different point of view from, possibly, his/her own.
This is a great story for 14 yo and up. There are some sexual situations and an adult situation regarding the main character's brother. However, overall the story is very much worth the time and the theme comes through loud and clear. I loved it!
This is the sequel to "Maximum Ride: The Angle Experiment". The original introduced the flock and the main character Maximum Ride. This book continues their adventures.
They get to finally experience some level of normalcy as the FBI takes them into protective custody. However, as you would expect, the "white coats" arrive to spoil everything.
The plot takes some interesting twists as parents are found, erasers come and go, and an evil twin rears her head. A great sequel even if it is abridged.
Alex Rider returns to save the world. This time, he meets up with old friends, old enemies, and a pop star with a need to save the world. Mind you, this pop star needs to kill thousands of innocents to do it....
This book has some exciting moments, and ends with a an unexpected twist that leads you directly into the next book.
I must read for Horowitz fans.
