Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Toni Jourdan
Max has never had the kind of life where she can just "wing" things, so when the attempt for the Flock to be normal by attending school doesn't really work out, it is back to the skies and this time they are placed in an all-out war. Fang has kept away, forming his own gang of misfits, trying to make peace with his split from Max, and turning to her clone, Maya. Meanwhile, Max has her own specially designed beau in Dylan, but she still misses what she had with "bad boy" Fang. This plays out throughout the whole book while the Apocalyptics, aka 99 Percenters seem to always be at the right place at the right time, ready to rumble. Jeb resurfaces and we see him as the evil scientist that he always was even though he'd played the part of their father figure. Max's mom tiptoes through the slippery slope of mutated gene developer/good doctor. It seems that Fang is on everybody's hit list, thanks to his immortality gene and Angel is...dead? The final book in the "Maximum Ride" series promises and delivers loads of page turning action, thanks to Patterson's short chapters. There are a multitude of plot twists that begin and end within the novel, but it would be wrong to give any of that away, and yes, some of them leave you wondering where they might be leading. Readers have proven that they care about these winged teenagers as they "fly" from adventure to adventure, but the final book seems to fall a bit short in the conclusion category. It even has epilogues that don't end the book. Rebecca Soler narrates the action perfectly and it is a great book to listen to, but be prepared for a roller coaster of a story. Reviewer: Toni Jourdan

Meet the Author

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 240 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

Biography

James Patterson had been working as a very successful advertising copywriter when he decided to put his Masters degree in English to a somewhat different use. Inspired by bestselling hair-raising thrillers like The Day of the Jackal and The Exorcist, Patterson went to work on his first novel. Published in 1976, The Thomas Berryman Number established him as a writer of tightly constructed mysteries that move forward with the velocity of a bullet. For his startling debut, Patterson was awarded the prestigious Edgar Award for Best First Mystery Novel—an auspicious beginning to one of the most successful careers in publishing.

A string of gripping standalone mysteries followed, but it was the 1992 release of Along Came a Spider that elevated Patterson to superstar status. Introducing Alex Cross, a brilliant black police detective/forensic psychologist, the novel was the first installment in a series of bestselling thrillers that has proved to be a cash cow for the author and his publisher.

Examining Patterson's track record, it's obvious that he believes one good series deserves another…maybe even a third! In 2001, he debuted the Women's Murder Club with 1st to Die, a fast-paced thriller featuring four female crime fighters living in San Francisco—a homicide detective, a medical examiner, an assistant D.A., and a cub reporter. The successful series has continued with other numerically titled installments. Then, spinning off a set of characters from a previous novel (1998's When the Wind Blows), in 2005 he published Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment. Featuring a "flock" of genetically engineered flying children, the novel was a huge hit, especially with teen readers, and spawned a series of vastly popular fantasy adventures.

In addition to continuing his bestselling literary franchises, Patterson has also found time to co-author thrillers with other writers—including Peter de Jonge, Andrew Gross, Maxine Paetro, and Howard Roughan—and has even ventured into romance (Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, Sam's Letters to Jennifer) and children's literature (santaKid). Writing at an astonishing pace, this prolific author has turned himself into a one-man publishing juggernaut, fulfilling his clearly stated ambition to become "the king of the page-turners."

Good To Know

Patterson's Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas was inspired by a diary his wife kept that tracked the development of their toddler son.

Two of Patterson's Alex Cross mysteries (Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls) have been turned into films starring Morgan Freeman; in 2007, a weekly television series premiered, based on the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels.
