did not like it

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 with bird wings. What should have been an interesting, pulse accelerating story, turns into something slightly boring just because of the way he tells it. Not only does the perspective thing make the story clunky, his sentences are just sub par. They're wooden and cliche, I don't know how else to describe it, I only know that I don't like it.
