James Patterson

As usual a gripping book. JP is the best writer and I have collected all his books. Highly recommend this book to anyone.

This is a great book.

I thought that this book is one of the best books that I have ever read. The book is so suspenseful, that you almost can't wait to turn the page. All the characters are so well described that you almost can't wait to discover how the characters are going to be involved with the story. You almost feel as if you know the characters by the end of the book. I thought that the books character's emotions were described very well also. The story is all about six genetically created children who were formed in a dangerous facility called The School. They escaped the evil place and were rescued by a couple named Frannie and Kit. The whole story is about their struggle to live a normal life. The story explains how the family flees from place to place, trying to escape the wrath of Dr. Ethan Kane. It shows how the family's will to survive, leads them to success. I personally thought that the story's plot was well told and that the story line was great. You will never expect what will happen next and the ending will leave you in shock. This is a suspense novel at its best and a fiction novel that makes for a great story. I would recommend this novel to anyone who looks a good suspense, on the edge of your seat story. Keep reading as the plot unfolds into an ending you'll never expect.

Confused by other reviews for sure...

Perhaps, the reason I liked this book so much was because it was the first of James Patterson's novels that I have ever read. (I didn't even know that it was a sequel to When the Wind Blows until I read the rest of these reviews!) While I did think that certain aspects of the plot were a little far-fetched, I reminded myself that we're talking about kids with wings here. This is certainly not a novel that's meant to have any shreds of truth. I thought it was a great read and I don't think that the fact its a sequel takes away from the novel at all (though I'm very anxious to read When the Wind Blows now). I am definitely going to seek out more of Patterson's work to enjoy. Bottom line: Don't listen to stuck up critiques who are used to a certain mold and who are afraid to break away from that. Read this book, enjoy it and move on!

A six stars fairy tale

When you start a book and: 1) You can't put it down. 2) You have a nice love story without sex. 3) You enjoy while reading. 4) Is a thriller although you know is a fairy tale. 5) You have a good time. 6) You have a smile at the end of it. It deserves six stars. If you like these kind of books you can read Fountain Society by Wes Craven. I think that many readers saw this book and they thought that will be a police thriller and they had a deception because in this book wasn't Alex Cross, but the writers can change their writing patterns and write different kind of novels, for example: The Christmas Train by David Baldacci or Abduction by Robin Cook; these books went out of the writers's patterns and are excellent readings.

Couldn't put it down!!

I have to say I am really surprised to see all the bad reviews for this book. I have read a lot of James Patterson's books and I loved this one. I highly recommend it.Patterson plays off fears that are becoming reality in this world. The idea that scientists are conducting experiments on people and animals in order to "better" the human race. I was so interested in the book because Patterson states at the beginning that things talked about in this novel are actually happening in some places; places that are kept extremely undercover. It is a scary idea.
