-The Book is not well written.
-The Dialog is bland and cheesy.
-James Patterson must have no idea what kids are like or how they talk.
-There's a lot of action but the action sequences are just bad. They are never cool or interesting, then the kids run away, as always, never finishing a fight.
- None of the characters are actually interesting. I didn't care for any of them.
- The Dialog and running away from something is very repetitive.
- Barely a plot, the kids mostly wander around aimlessly, while somewhat heading in a direction.
- Its an easy read, you can fly through the pages at an alarming rate. Making it easy to finish if you enjoy it.
- There are a couple moments in the story that are decent.
It seems that "Where the Wind Blows" and it's sequel "The Lake House", were the more adult versions of the story of Max, then rewritten towards a more young adult audience as the actual "Maximum Ride" series. I would highly recommend reading the originals before diving into "Maximum Ride" books, even though they are two completely series and the books do not match up.
I will also add that I received this book in incredible condition. I did order a used copy and there is no sign of this book ever being used. It looks as brand new. I am extremely happy with this purchase!
After that rant you may be surprised to hear that I did like the story. It was a good example of what it is, a quick, entertaining read.
