This book is amazing. I think it is the best book in the whole series (though you should read them all). It's captivating, enthralling, brilliant, thrilling, and just down right hilarious. It may have a lower level vocabulary, but it's characters are just as charming and witty as a master like Shakespeare or J.K. Rowling. The characters are brilliantly developed, and completely realistic. No fake, unbeleivable personalities here. The plotline is complex, full of brialliant twists and turns. Just as you think you've figured it out, Patterson takes you around another bend, and your theory is blown to pieces. But, sometimes books have exciting plotlines in some parts, and boring areas in others. Not Maximum Ride. It's a must read all the way through, from the first page to the last. It may be a fantasy, but it has some very real topics in it, from global warming, to a teen's crazy love life, to an obsession over choclate chip cookies. It's wonderfully written so that you enjoy the fantasy, wish-it-were-you feeling, but also see the real issues portrayed in the book. The characters and emotions are so believable, sometimes you feel it could really happen. I'm a teenager, and I feel exactly as Max does when she's tumbling through her adventures. From her happiness and her excitement, to her confusion and fear, I feel as if I know her, and understand what she's going through. I understand why she does things, or why she doesn't. Basically, she (and the rest of the Flock) are totally beleivable characters. The plot flows with excitement, created by exploding buildings, on-the-fly fights, and an interesting love twist, and the characters are amazingly well developed, creating an all together great book. What more could anyone want?

I was orginally asking for Witch and Wizard by James Patterson for Christmas but my mom bought me this whole series instead. I was a little dissapointed that I didn't get the books I wanted but, out of politness I was going to read these books anyways. So I picked up the first one and I loved it. Right now i'm currently reading the fourth out of five. I really like how I can relate to Max, and how that when James Patterson writes it's not always about the same exact thing. Every series has a different plot, and I think that all his books are great. I definetly reccomend these books to anyone who loves to read, it's well worth your time.

when i finished Angel Experiment, i went and welcomed hell just to get my copy of School's out-forever and saving the world and other extreme sports. and you know what? part 2 and 3 didn't disappoint me. the second book focused on Max and the flock trying to find any information about the School and about their parents. Well, you already know they grew on tubes and dog crates so knowing their parents are typically out of their knowledge. When Max started to hear a Voice on her head, she and her flock went to different places in US in search of an answer that can help them solve the mystery of their School, about Jeb, their growing need for a normal life, and Max's and Fang's feelings for each other...about the latter part, it came earlier. So, if any of this reviews doesn't catch your attention, better go to the School and try to wake your blood a little bit...

This is probably the best of the maximum ride series. I have read the whole series 3 times and this is the one i enjoy the most every time i reread the series. I love the max books and cant wait for nevermore to come out(the book after Angel). This is probably my favorite because it has the most action, most wisecracks, kick (insert word not supposed to say) battles, awesomeness and twists. Every time i read it there is something i didnt remember about it from the last time. This is my favorite book ever and i get in trouble for reading too much all the time so that is comparing it to alot of books! Now to the actual book Fang gets injured in a fight, and the flock, max and her family, have to go to a human hospital or he'll die. Why is that a problem u may ask? Only because they are former lab experiments with wings of course! So while there of course someone in the hospital staff calls the FBI and they show up. The agents ask stupid questions and get stupid answers in return. The agent interviewing max invites her to stay at her house. Of course max would say no, so the agent threatens not letting the doctors opperate on Fang. Max loves everyone in the flock and the idea of losing anyone, especially her best friend, is tragic, so of course she excepts. When they are there Anne, the agent, forces them to go to school. That is all im going to say because i could go on and would probably tell u the end before stopping. So i hope u are hooked by now if not read the book anyway and u will be. It is worth the money and the few hours. If u didntread the first one first shame on u because it was really good to. Now after u read this if u dont imediatelly feel like u need to read the next one u need to either get a life or get over urself!

I just love this books because there is a lot of adventure and action. Plus a little romance which makes the story whole. It's about six children Max,Fang,Iggy,Nudge,Gasman,and Angel who just keep getting attacked by Erasers who won't stop till they kill them. But there is also a little jealousy,lying,and some really funny moments. So by all means go out and buy this great book.

You can choose from •Max •Fang •Iggy •Nudge • Gazzy(Gasman) • Angle • Ari My favorite is Iggy. Even though someone may be blind, they are stiil capable of many things. Iggy proves that in just one proficient way; he can make bombs. *avatar102102*

Maximum rRide: School's Out- Forever is the second book in the Maximum Ride series. Following their New York adventure, the flock ends up in Virginia, at the house of Anne Walker. The only reason Anne knows about them- and their wings- is because, on their way to Virginia, they were attacked by Erasers. Fang was badly wounded, and the only way to help him was to bring him to a hospital. They went to Anne's house to recover and let Fang rest. There, they are faced with their greatest challenge yet: school. The real kind, not the crazy- science- experments- and- whitecoats kind. James Patterson brings a new cast of characters into the story, including Lissa, Sam, Tess, headmaster/headhunter Mr. Pruitt, and Anne Walker herself. In this second installment, Max and the flock must make it through the challenges of public school, the challenges of meeting new people, and discovering that these new people aren't quite who, or what, they seem to be... Will Max and the flock make it through the school year? Or will they flee before then? Find out in Maximum Ride, book two: School's Out- Forever. If you read this book, you would probably already know what the first book is titled, but for you newbies out there, the first book is titled Maximum Ride, book one: The Angel Experiment. Book three is titled Maximum Ride, book three: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports. If you enjoyed this book, try some other James Patterson books. You never know what books you may enjoy without actually opening them. I found this book incredible, and it kept me on the edge of my seat for most of the book. The entire book was filled with action, adventure, and just a bit of romance. Try it. You never know. You might like it. Though i do reccommend you start with book one.
