Being a teenager is hard enough, but when you’re “mutant freaks,” as the flock call themselves, life becomes a daily battle just to survive. Nancy Wu, who narrates this first-person story of Maximum Ride, the leader of the flock of bioengineered human/bird kids, is outstanding in characterizing both the wisecracking, self-deprecating humor of Max, as well as each of the other children. James Jenner personifies Ari, the eraser experiment gone mad who stalks Max and her flock across the East Coast in an effort to bring them back to the lab. A great pair, the narrators bring this sequel alive and leave the listener eagerly waiting for the next installment. D.L.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
