This book begins exactly where the last one left off. I was involved form the start. James Patterson can get you so involved with his words that you see in your minds eye just what he is relaying. I can picture the "winged" children just as clear as if I was there. The best writers have that knack of drawing you in so you can't but their books down.

James Patterson¿s book, The Lake House, was rather a surprise since I expected a gripping murder mystery and got a science fiction story about children with wings that could fly. Nevertheless, Patterson grabbed my attention early in the story, and by keeping the chapters short for easy reading and filling the pages with action-packed happenings and/or dialogue, he kept the story moving. While I am not a science fiction fan, the story was interesting enough to keep me reading. The resolution to the plot was a bit downsized¿an entire hospital and many workers were involved, yet, they weren¿t mentioned in the resolution¿only the man responsible. If you read this book you will be rewarded with a happy ending for the characters.

I couldn't wait to dive into this book after reading "As the Wind Blows" and I was not disappointed. It was a thrilling and heart touching novel to conclude a great story. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone.

This was an offbeat book. It was an interesting read and a little weird. I can't say that I enjoyed it as much as I have enjoyed some of James Patterson's other books. It was ok.

This book, plus the first one, sounds sooo much like the Maximum Ride series, also by James Patterson. I haven't read this series, but I can tell you that after reading the Max Ride over 12 times, I still count them as several of my favorite books. I know exactly what happens, and yet it never bores me to tears. That takes skill. ;) I highly reccomend this author. He writes great suspense novels, including Witch and Wizard, which I also highly reccomend!

Our story opens with Fran, a veterinarian, and Kit, an FBI agent fighting for the custody of six very special children. The six children are the first of their kind. They can fly! Sadly, the only time these children had ever been happy was when the eight of them lived in the secluded lake house. Now, Fran and Kit are fighting the children's biological parents to keep them all together. Meanwhile, unethical scientists are performing unethical experiments. They, too, would like the children. Unspeakable horrors await the children there. The pacing of this story is off. Some scenes linger until the reader grows tired of the subject matter. Other scenes seem to jump from scene to scene, glossing over entire scenes, jumping erratically through time. It did not present any confusion, but it seemed unprofessional and very awkward. Sadly, the characters were likeable in some scenes. In other scenes they acted strangely. There did not seem to be consistency here. I really liked the premise of the story, but I the found the story it disappointing and even very predictable at times.

I read this book because I had read the prequel. I wanted an ending to the story. This book was similar to the first book. The first book had a school, where the bad people performed experiments on humans to create super human beings. In this book, the bad people performed experiments on humans in a hospital to create super human beings. There was a lot of chasing and flying of the children with wings. At least the story had an ending.

Lake House was an exceptional read. I did not want to put it down. You need an open mind to understand different human beings and their everyday living to strive to stay and be a family. If you are curious about scientific experiments that result in unusual beings and them wanting to stay together, become a family unit and experience love; you will read this book! I have read other books written by James Patterson, I found this book quite different but written so you wanted to keep turning the pages. I feel a book club discussion would have many different avenues to discuss about Lake House.

The follow up to "When The Wind Blows" seemed a little hokey to me. I just could not by the premise of "The Hospital" and their great escape.
