Personal Review:

My first YA audiobook review. I chose this book because of the author James Patterson who I am familiar with.

The story was very entertaining and moved along at a very quick pace. I have not read the first book in this series, but caught up quickly – which I lend to Patterson’s excellent writing style.

The most intriguing aspect of this series is the powers that Max, Fang, Iggy, Gasman, Nudge, and Angel posses. I remember as a child dreaming of these powers and how I would use them in everyday life. While the youngest winged kids use them as I would have by messing around in school and “persuading” authority, Max and Fang use them responsibly and lead the kids from one area to another evading the Erasers and “doctors” that created them.

The premise behind this adventure is the search for the kids’ real parents. Although they do find one set of parents, it is not exactly what they were looking for.

Although Valentina De Angelis is age appropriate for the recording, I think a more experienced voice actor would have made a huge difference for this book.

I have one more book in the series and am looking forward to another enjoyable light listen.
