  1. Update 5 25 2015So I just bought the last book of the Maximum Ride series, and when I clicked on the series button thing here on , I stumbled upon a note from James Patterson saying that this Max is different from the Max from Maximum Ride It s quite impossible how different they are They re too fucking similar to be different I can t do anything about it though because I guess what the author says is true Sucks big time I bought this book in hardcover, for only 2 because of the mere fact that P [...]

  2. I have read this and I am not ashamed to state I enjoyed itI see that there are several reviews here that suggest that to have enjoyed this book or james pattersons books shows a low reading levelThat is so condesceding It is possible that there is like me a lot of people who read Fiction please do remember its fiction and want something that is easy to read and different from there lives and not always want to read series books with heavy deeper meanings that require a lot of thought or that ta [...]

  3. This was a surprisingly different better book for James Patterson, an author I read a long time ago because my parents enjoyed his work for a while Therefore I picked it up desperate for a book to read and quickly noticed that I enjoyed it than his usual work I haven t read any of the other books in this series, though.

  4. Something blows alright I struggled to finish this book and by the time I did finish I wanted several hours of my life back Too many loose ends Reads like it was written on autopilot.

  5. The concept was good, but Patterson s writing style just didn t do it for me, it seems very hokey at times and the characters Frannie Kit seemed flat, rather lame romance weaved in there that i could have done without I WANTED to like Frannie KIt but they just didn t add to the story, in fact they were a distraction that really wasn t pulled off very well The writing seemed choppy I m starting to wonder why Patterson is such a popular author, I m thinking perhaps his earlier works were better Pe [...]

  6. Strange but enjoyable and entertaining This book Isn t your Alex Cross, Michael Bennett or Women s Murder Club you are used to reading It is fantasy than mystery or thriller,but loved it and looking forward to the second book in the series THE LAKE HOUSE.

  7. James Patterson has exactly the same writing style as Dean Koontz There are hits and misses This, most definitely, was not a hit.I ve read a few of his other books, mostly the ones meant for children and young adults, so I wasn t really surprised by the caliber of language However, this book is supposed to be for adults and still, he has a pedestrian way of telling the story The book flashes in and out of first and third person perspective, among three people, one of them being Max, the girl wit [...]

  8. Patterson s atrociously elementary prose aside, When the Wind Blows is an afront to good storytelling sensibilites the world over and is another example of literature of the lowest possible common denominator Whilst the likes of Dan Brown have been the most recent perpetrators of this populism, Patterson has certainly been the consistent of the two and quite arguably the worst offender of all modern hacks I must surmise that even the combined powers of Dickens, Poe, Kafka or the most literate m [...]

  9. When James Patterson came up with the idea for When The Wind Blows, he probably bragged to all of his friends When he finished writing the prologue, he probably knew he had a masterpiece in the works.And when he completed the book, all stunning 416 pages, he probably bragged to his friends about his masterpiece.What an amazing book Flawless in every aspect, and throughouly enticing.

  10. This is the one that started it all The very first time we meet Max, a wonderful mutant with wings Patterson used such a great name he couldn t give it up for the YA series suspense, and the adults were compelling.

  11. This review is a first for me, in that it is my first ever book review, and that it is of my first ever James Patterson novel My reading of this book came about by accident I have demolished every novel on my bookshelf My boyfriend is a massive Patterson fan, and he handed me this book having not read it himself When the Wind Blows was of huge disappointment to me I was expecting to enjoy an engrossing crime thriller, so I was somewhat surprised when a girl with wings was introduced to the story [...]

  12. Esperimenti illegali di manipolazione genetica questo l argomento trattato nel romanzo Agghiacciante Atrocit che fanno gelare il sangue nelle vene Le scene della Scuola sono le pi scioccanti Per il resto, la storia, narrata con una scrittura pressoch elementare forse dovuta alla traduzione , se si tolgono alcuni termini medico scientifici quasi obbligatori, mi parsa molto fantasiosa, anzi fantascientifica D altra parte il sogno di volare insito in ognuno di noiMa siamo veramente sicuri che si tr [...]

  15. Wonderful, suspenseful, and another book that kept me up till 10 00 pm not really, I m just saying it was very captivating When the Wind Blows was the foundation to James Patterson s best selling series, Maximum Ride which happens to be one of my favorite series, so when I heard about this book, I got really excited It is similar to Maximum Ride, but not at the same time Frannie O Neil is depressed after her husband, David, died She s not sure who murdered him, but when Kit Harrison, an FBI agen [...]

  16. To my disappointment, the back blurb made this book out to be intriguing than it actually was Modern day laboratory chimeras I think this book came out around the time of the tv show, Dark Angel similar themes that are grown and manipulated inside unknowing mothers to be Sounds pretty good, right That s about as fascinating as it gets I had hoped it would have explored of how the process was done and the scientific background, but there was none Essentially, a girl who has wings from the proje [...]

  17. Alright, this book was AMAZING I love books about the future of genetic manipulation, and especially how it could possibly pertain to human research even though its rather far fetched at the moment This book was the best one I ve read so far in that vein Plus, the characters are really endearing, the plot is amazing and very twisty, and the writing style keeps you engaged for the entire book there were no slow parts This is the first Patterson book I ve ever read, and I ve got to say, I think I [...]

  18. GREAT BOOK, JIM SAYS this book is not the beginning of MAXIMUM OVERRIDE SERIES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE BUT I DISAGREE , since the characters in this book were scientifically mutated humans and the Maximum ride series really are he same thing, BOTH THIS BOOK and the MAX series are great Give it a read I Loved it when I read this and was mad cause there was no book two but 10 years later low and behold the maximum ride series it out Any way Great reads

  19. I am always excited to dig into a new book by James Patterson I have enjoyed his writing very much over the yearswhether it is a gritty suspense novel or a heartfelt romance.A story about genetic engineering gone awry piqued my interest Medical thrillers are one of my favorite themes However, this one just didn t grab me and when it was over I was ready to be done I don t think I ll pursue anything else in this particular series.

  20. The premise was appealing The writing was abysmal and as my first Patterson read I am considering being horrified at the popularity of this writer It was bad enough that it was spread evenly throughout without many specifc points to mention I spoke with an enad coworker and ended up looking up use of ghostwriters and apparently James Patterson is of a brand than an author He might come up with most of the ideas but it seems most of the writing itself is outsourced I can understand that, but I w [...]

  21. I love Max and her story but something doesn t ring right in this adult spin off of the series The adults characters sound wrong somehow Both main adults characters are competent professionals but the way the act talk are written is off.I don t remember feeling this reading the YA series so maybe James Patterson is better at writing YA, where all his characters sound right.At least for me it looks like it.2 stars only because I previously loved the characters and story Otherwise, as quality writ [...]

  22. I loved reading this book this book isn t like Patterson s normal murderous books it was really enjoyable to read I would definitely recommend this book if your interested in mystery and a bit of science This book was definitely full of surprises and I am definitely going to read the next book.

  23. The book When the Wind Blows by James Patterson is an interesting It either Set itself up for the beginning of one of James Patterson s other series, or was written with the idea that this would be a sort of Prologue to that series If you don t know what series I m referring to, it s the Maximum Ride series You re probably wondering how this is a sort of Prologue to that series, and I am here to elaborate It s actually in plain sight, hell, even on the first pages You don t need to play detectiv [...]

  26. The following review was written when I was 12 years old When I read this book, one of the first things I noticed was that the flow of the story seemed somewhat confusing or erratic because it is told from four different points of view I think the author wrote the story this way to try to narrate different events happening at the same time An example of this is when the telling of the story alternates between Max and the people who are following her If I was writing the story, I would try to red [...]

  27. Spoiler Alert the little girl found in the woods has wings No wait, you re told that in the first chapter.Spoiler Alert Kit Harrison is actually an FBI agent ah, no sorry, we re told that up front too.Spoiler Alert there s a secret lab in the forest experimenting on humans No, wait that s near the beginning As you can probably guess, I wasn t too impressed with this book to start with Everything that could have been a massive revelation, a huge plot twist, even a small wow moment for the reader, [...]

  28. I ve read the Maximum Ride books and I was curious to see where the inspiration for that series came from When the Wind Blows was an interesting book, fast paced like all of Patterson s works The romance between Kit and Frannie was extremely awkward Maybe it was Patterson s writing style or I don t know, but whenever it jumped into Frannie s first person perspective when the rest of the book was written in third person it felt so unbelievably fake Like, really, really, ridiculously, cringe worth [...]
