this series is my *pause for dramatic effect* NEW FAVORITE. its even better then twilight - I'm not even kidding. saying it's my favorite is a big step for me - LOL - because before i read twilight i had many MANY favorites but twilight quickly jumped to the #1 spot in the "books i've read" reading list i keep up in my head. i had no doubt that it was going to stay there in the #1 spot for a long long long long long time - if not forever. but then came the maximum ride series and as i read it i mentally made it climb the list of books until it bumped twilight right down to numero dos. this book is very interesting, exciting, and unpredictable. i think the part i loved the most is the writing style. even if the situation they were in was the worst they had faced yet, james patterson managed to make me laugh (out loud) at the funny things that the members of the flock said. i was so into the story as i was reading it was unbelievable. i loved how it was written in max point of veiw and how the reader wasn't part of the story but wasn't out of it either. it grabbed my attention from the very first page and didn't let go. it was about adventure and misunderstanding and confusion and mystery and near death fights and high speed chases and flying. and its about them realizing that family is the most important - even when your family consits of 5 mutant bird kids. i recommend the rest of this series ( i havn't read MAX yet but im sure it will be great) and also the host if you like science fiction. if you can't find anything to read then check out my b&n page for more books that i recommend :)

I LOVED the first three books of this series, and when I heard there was a fourth book coming out I was super excited! I got it the day it came out, read it, and haven't touched it since. The first three books were very well written, and very funny. Max is a hilarious character! The action was pretty good and it was a good story line. The third one was a little weird, there were so many plot twists, but I still liked it. However, this fourth one was just disappointing. I mean, global warming is a great cause and all, but is this just going to become yet ANOTHER "don't pollute!" and "save the environment!" things? I mean, is this why the flock was created is to stop global warming?...I wasn't really too impressed by this book. I've seen how this author can write, and if he's out of ideas then just STOP writing and don't ruin a great series. I think you should leave global warming and (in this case) maximum ride apart. If James Patterson thinks we should be more aware of global warming, then he can write a book about global warming that people can read if they want to. But for us Maximum Ride fans, we just want the witty, action packed stories we fell in love with in the first three books.

    Not as bad as reviews say

    Most reviews are saying it wasnt good but I disagree. This book was just as good as the others maybe even better. The only "con" it has is that its shorter than the rest.

    Good, but not great.

    The first three were awesome! As were the 5th and 6th. I felt that this book was slightly forced.

    Maximum Ride series review by Dana

    I am a huge Maximum Ride fan. Most of my friends are too, but many of us noticed that after the third book it was as if the author got lost. Here are some things I noticed:
    - the flock never officially defeated Itex
    - it was never determined whether Sam (Max's short term boyfriend) was good or evil
    - Iggy's power to see the color white was never mentioned after this book
    - the people at Itex never explained why they tried to make Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, the Gasman, and Angel believe that everything was a dream
    - in Fang it looked like Max was going to go to see Dr. Gunther Hagen and
    get Iggy a pair of eyes for his birthday, but she never did

    Those are just a couple of things that didn't work or were never resolved in the series. Maybe the author, James Patterson, is planning to answer these questions in later books.

    Amazing

    This book was the best maximum ride book yet. I don't know about max, fang, angel, or nevermore yet but this book is amazing. Lots of action which is always great from james patterson makes this book one of my favorites. Also, in this book you learn more things about the characters. You can't put it down!

    This was a good book. The only I am not giving it five stars is that one part of it did not make sense.

    Great book

    Another great chapter in te Maximum Ride series. Although I'm not so sure I'm on board with all of the global warming stuff and (in my opinion) there not being as much action as before, I still could not put the book down and can't wait to start on the next one.
