by James Patterson
Overall, this was a fast-paced, action-packed novel. Despite it's apparent thickness, this is a pretty quick read. Max is a witty, self-deprecating narrator, so I can definitely see why it is popular with teens. However, I thought there were several holes in the plot. I understand how a younger audience could buy into this, but I felt like this story was just a little too contrived. Though I'm a bit curious about what will happen to the flock next, I do not feel the urge to read the next book in the series.
