One of my mom's favorite books from when she was growing up, so she suggested I read it one summer when I was looking for reading. I enjoyed it just as much as she did.
One of those books you can hardly believe was written four centuries ago. Pascal's pensées are surprisingly modern and profound, leaving the reader with enough reflection material for at least a year.
I know the series isn't really an adult series, but this one really felt like a teen book. One of my biggest complaints about young adult (teen) books, even when I was young, is they tend to be written at a lower level, as if normal writing cannot be understood if you are a minor. The earlier books were normal books, they just lacked the foul language and inappropriate situations that would keep them from being minor friendly. The never ending supply of "new powers" has gotten old, and frankly some of the "powers" are just pathetic. (Gazzy's ability, really? Thanks for basically throwing in some potty humor.) The global warming plot got old fast. Global warming is bad, you don't have to repeat it every page for kids to absorb that idea. The most disappointing thing, and most pathetic, had to be the Uber-director and his army. I felt it was condescending (the readers won't get that he's a really evil guy unless his title/name explains it) and as far as bad guys go, I've seen better ones in bad B movies being mocked on Mystery Science Theater. The days of the bad guys being "evil" scientists was so much better. It showed a realistic gray area, the scientists only viewed the flock as experiments and only saw their scientific value. It was creepy, but there was a slim possibility, unlike the crazy extremes this book goes to.
