This is a very fast-paced book, and it will keep you guessing until the end! If you like murder books then I suggest you read this book. It is another great masterpiece from James Patterson!

This is so much better than the DaVinci Code. You have to read it. The plot is much better defined, and the dramatic conclusion is amazing. There is suspense on every page, and if that's what you love, this is the book for you. One of the best books I've ever read.

The books are very action-packed! Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gazzy, and Angel have had their DNA crossed with a bird's. So they gave wings and they each have unique powers. They escaped from the school (where they were experimented on) and are being hunted down because Itex (company that owns the school) wants them dead. Laughs, (love?), sadness, anger, excitement, and saving the world in store.

I thought this book was really interesting. I liked how there was really four different stories but were somehow all connected. There were a lot of twists in every chapter and there were rarely dull moments. The only thing I would have changed would be to give a little more information on what happened to each of the girls.

Maximum Ride is one of the best series you will ever read. The Angel Experiment is the first in a great series, Max and her flock give you high action adventure that you simply can not put down. It has everything: mad scientists, human-wolf mutants, flying kids, and tons of action. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a good read.

In his second book about symbologist Robert Langdon, Brown stays true to his style of carefully researched, fascinatingly realistic incorporation of ancient mysteries, modern technology, and captivating characters. This book is well worth taking the time to read.

The Scarlet Pimpernel is written in the time of the French Revolution. It is about a person, the Scarlet Pimpernel, as he calls himself, whom no one knows his true identity. The disguised Scarlet Pimpernel secretly takes aristocrats, and smuggles them out of the country, so they will be protected. This book is one of my favorites, and keeps you interested from the start, with mystery, suspense, romance, and adventure. I recommend it to anyone in need of a great book!

Though I really liked this book, I think a reader younger than me might like it more. Phileas Fogg bets that he can go around the world in 80 days, and this book tells about his adventures as he tries to do sso. It is obviously a classic, well written, interesting, fun and easy summer read.

I really liked this book. I thought it explained everything well and it was very descriptive. Even so, I think that heaven (the main character) jumped to conclusions too quickly, which was sometimes good, sometimes bad.

I personally thought that this book was hard to follow and confusing. I mean it had a good plot but it was like jumping around. First she is a happy soccer player, then a person who starts skipping school, then to Alice in a play, then back to a school skipper. Half of it didn't make much sense to me, Though other people have said it is the best book in the world. You decide.

I thought this book was very interesting. At times, it was a little slow on action, but the author kept throwing in more twists and turns. I liked it a lot and Margaret Peterson Haddix left it open for lots of sequels. I will be looking for them.

This is an out-of-the-ordinary book that will captivate you and keep your attention. The style of writing is sometimes confusing, though, and there are even a few typos. Overall, this is a very good book with some great action scenes. It doesn't dwell too long on boring parts.

The Slippery Slope was quite sad. In fact, I think it was one of the saddest books by Lemony Snicket except for The End.

White-Out has a very intriguing plot line, involving a murder (actually, a few...), thievery, and the music. White-out has a good balance of seriousness and humor, making it an enjoyable read.

This book-scary at times but was definitely a page turner. I loved how Peg Kehret had Pete the cat tell part of the story and part by her. Alex seems like a very realistic character to me.
