Maximum Ride by James Patterson
Book vs. Movie
Goodreads Blurb on Book: Six unforgettable kids — with no families, no homes — are running for their lives. Max Ride and her best friends have the ability to fly. And that's just the beginning of their amazing powers. But they don't know where they come from, who's hunting them, why they are different from all other humans... and if they're meant to save mankind — or destroy it.
My thoughts on the book(s): I started to read the series when I saw posters and trailers for book 9 Maximum Ride Forever. I knew they were a little below my grade level but factors like that don’t bother me. I personally like the series. I thought the idea was interesting and liked that it was about kids/teens trying to co-exist with their special qualities in an adult world.
My thoughts on the Movie: I heard some mixed reviews about the movie before I watched it but I tried to keep an open mind. My honest opinion, it jumped around lot, it seemed rushed and the characters did match the book more than I thought it would but overall you can tell the movie was one a strict budget and small time window to complete the project. It reminded me of Twilight and how disappointing it was. I didn’t feel like the movie did the book justice.
