MAX by James Patterson (audio)

James Patterson's MAX on audio is chock full of sound effects, drama, and thrills. MAX is the fifth book in the young adult Maximum Ride series, which centers on winged kids that range from ages 6 to 16. Max leads the flock of winged children, and in this novel, they attempt to find Max's kidnapped mother with the help of the U.S. military.

Not only does this novel immerse readers in the angst, confusion, and desire of these kids to fit in, it also is a coming of age story for Max as she begins to understand her feelings for Fang.

Listeners will be completely absorbed in the twists and turns of this thriller as the flock flies from South America to other locations and boards submarines to locate Max's mother beneath the ocean's surface. Check out this audio excerpt from James Patterson's Website to hear the sound effects and the charged voice of Jill Apple.

If you are interested in this audiobook, just leave a comment to be entered. I'll draw a winner on July 25, 2009.

I have never read a thriller by JP. I have read all his romance novels though. I haven't really tried listening to audio books, but I'm tempted to give this a try, especially when you say it has all those sound effects. Please enter me.

Veens: I only liked the first of his romance novels--Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas--I really like the thriller novels.

Violetcrush: Patterson's audio books are some of the best.

Sounds like a good one. No need to enter me, as you've given The Girl the paperback. I'll put this in my sidebar, though.

Patterson is sure a seller at the library but I have never read anything by him. I really shouldn't think of what I haven't read, cos it sure makes me wanna clean out the library ;)
