Decent sci-fi, but far from Patterson's usual storytelling.
Worth a listen in the background while working on a project, but I think I might have put the book down and not picked it back up, for the effort to read it might not be worth it.
Just my opinion.
I kept reading this hoping that somehow it would just get better...but it didn't. It just dragged on and on and I found the story line utterly ridiculous.
Just not my cup of tea!
The fantasy elements of this story were well thought out and executed. I especially liked the basic human nature of the characters and how they interacted. The children, as special as they were, acted like children. Who knows what kind if medical research is being conducted now? This story was plausible and scary because something like this could happen, if not now, then soon.
Have no idea who would enjoy this impossible story
Love James Patterson but this was totally unworthy of his excellent skills. No one seemed at all surprised to see flying children when, in reality, most people would have been horrified. Also suspect the government would have covered it all up not arranged a party at the end.
The main character is supposedly 33 years old. Ms. Schraf sounds like she's late 50's or early 60's. Also, not good at all in changing voice for different characters. Had a hard time telling who was supposed to be talking when the scene involved more than one man.
The two people - father and daughter - who were never seen or heard from again after the first couple of minutes.
This story was completely unbelievable from the first introduction of a girl who had wings to the end where all the children were happily reunited with their birth parents. Most parents would not be so joyful to find the child they thought had died was really half bird half human.
Like most book readers, I like to crawl into bed every nite with a good friend.
And concept, at times, but very boring reader. Voice is too high sometimes which makes the characters sound whiney. There is a lot of detailed descriptions of the various settings, which begins to feel repetitive and laborious, after a while, due to her monotonous tone.
One of the silliest books I have ever read. Sorry, but that is my opinion For me, the author is usually much better.
Maybe but I would read the summary very carefully.
Just perfect for the story.
The problem was with the premise not any individual character.
Very much enjoyed the book. Interesting story, enough people to love and enough to hate. Good book.
