Eew This book sucked SOOO BAD James Patterson seems to have a talent for making every next book in this series worse than the ne before I declare the Maximum Ride series as now fficially RUINED This book was boring full f lecturing global warming yapper all f which I already KNOW and lacking any adventure There were no action packed chase scenes no thrilling fights that Maximum Ride used to always be full f Instead the MCs are stuck in Antarctica f all places trying to help stop the climate change Wow How exciting NOT As for the conflicts f the story there are basically none left There are no true great villains any Now that Ari is dead the bad guys are ceasing to be complex Now what Max and the flock are fighting against are lacking depth two dimensional robotic evil freaks who go Mwa ha ha I m going to kill you and take ver the world GRR Ugh It s not A Stepdaughter In Heat (Daddy Daughter Sex Stories) only the plot that has totally flumped in this book The characters I deeply regret to say are dying The flock used to be the reason I loved the MR series their personalities were so complex and awesome and they were so fun to watch Especially Max She used to be such a great narrator her voice had been great and strong and she used to be tough funny sarcastic cynical and kick butting Now there s no Max any but a completely different person stuck in her body She s turned into this weak lovestruck mopey pathetic softie who falls for anything and does what anyone tells her to I mean come ON Where has the totally cool Max gone And who is this new freakJames Patterson has taken the whole special human thing WAY too far The flock members are getting WAY to many new powers Wasn t it ENOUGH when Angel got to read minds breathe underwater CONTROLther people s minds AND talk to fish Now she has to change her appearance too And noooo Nudge can t just be able to tell what people have done when she touches things She has to all f a sudden become magnetic WALLAH suddenly Iggy can feel color AND heck he can see sometimes too Gee And f course it s NOT gross enough that Gazzy farts all the time NOW his farts have to have COLOR Gross Oh and f course who could forget Fang Heavens no he HAS to be able to turn invisible too Who would have guessed Ugh I don t see how Patterson can still explain all these fantasy cal powers with SCIENCE It s not science any kay It s now In the End officially magic You killed science two books agoNot to mention the fact that Total now has wings WTF And apparently the Voice isn t Jeb any Huh In mypinion Patterson changed his mind and decided he didn t want it to be Jeb any and know he has no idea who the Voice is going to be so he s just going to brush it ff and pretend it can just be some mysterious thing that we don t know about Jeez Like everything else in the MR series it s not thought ut at allWant to know another thing that s not thought ut at all The color f Max s hair Okay I am SO confused about this it s not even funny In the first book she s described as having dark blonde hair Then somewhere in the second book she s described as having LIGHT blonde hair THEN in this book she s described with BROWN hair OMG Make up your mind Patterson What the heck is her hair color It s really bugging meAnywayslooong sigh Maximum Ride has managed to give me yet ANOTHER huge headache The books have never failed to make me feel like bashing me head against the wall and dumping the stupid pages in the toilet Urgh I wonder how James Patterson can possibly make the 5th book worse then this ne But I know it will surprise me and be even suckier than this ne Whoop de doo Off to read the next ne and get some head bashing aches Yippee uite a disapointment compared to the ther three books It s about a third f the size and is not nearly as good as the thers Where is the HEART POUNDING ACTION The WITTY SARCASTIC HUMOR The SUSPENSE that makes you wanna CRY everytime you are forced to put the book downI ve heard rumors that there are going to be 5 books The Age of Treachery of this series and I cannly hope the thers are much much much better AAAAAAAhhhhhh This series is fun The first three books are an action packed fun adventure with decent characters There are plot holes but the point is believable teenage angst in the midst f constant danger This 4th book has some good parts involving the characters dealing with adults expectations The Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy of them But it is also a fulln boring crappy global warming propaganda pamphlet with some random bad guy thrown in ut f nowhere and an extra bad hurricane due to global warming Bike Mechanic: Tales from the Road and the Workshop (Rouleur) of course that fortuitously saves them They ve been fighting killer flying mutant wolves robots and clones and now they suddenly see that GLOBAL WARMING is the true threat STUPID It is utterly inconsistent with the plot and themef the series to jump from shadow government rganizations and amoral corporations bent n enslaving and killing the mutant bird kids in When a Man Loves a Woman order to takever the world to playing with penguins and ratifying the Kyoto Treaty yes this 14 yr ld heroine got that specific The bad guys are global warming extremists and apparently unrelated to the verall bad guys from the Keep From Falling other books The next book is set up at the end as they flyff to meet at some distant coordinates and get back to fighting robots this whole book appears to be a lame tangent you could skip completelyThe global warming debate is an interesting and important Catalogue the Insanity one in mypinion but keep the preaching ut f a series completely based Shrek on action teen identity and familylackf family roles This book feels like Patterson felt an urge to save the world and sold ut like Michael Jordan selling underwear If you want good novels with consistent environmental themes that make sense try Hoot and Flush by Carl Hiaasen My problem with the story wasn t so much that James Patterson us. In this breathtaking new story from the astonishing imagination f James Patterson a girl has to save herself from an army assembled just to capture her and maybe save the planet while she's at itMaximum Ride is a perfectly normal teenager who just happens to be able to fly the result Look Alikes Jr. of anut f control gove.
E bad etc in the books But that took a sideline to the action and characters In this book I really felt that Patterson just wanted to talk about global warming and decided to use Max to get his point across Supposedly this is the last book but if it isn t I will be hard pressed to pick up a new title Whatever your feelings n global warming are I hate being lectured to in fiction and feeling like someone is dumping their propaganda down my throat Barely anything even happened in the book they were too busy talking about global warming I m all for empowering kids to make a difference in the world but I also want them to think about multiple sides Architecture for the Shroud: Relic and Ritual in Turin of an issue I want them to uestion and read scientific studies for themselves not listen to a pop culture icon tell them how it is I mean how manyf us lived through the Just say no drug campaigns Collecting and Exhibiting Computer-Based Technology: Expert Curation at the Museums of the Smithsonian Institution of the 90s not to mention the This is your brain this is your brainn drugs scare tactics At least now they have commercials that go I got high Nothing happened Nothing at all I just sat He Remembers the Barren on my couch all day like an idiot You know what I don t want to get high any so that something can actually happen in my life Stuff like that tells it how it is Sure Max uestions slightly if it s really bad if the world gets a few degrees warmer but they stick to the scare tactics andver dramatization that has been popular in global warming ever since An Inconvenient Truth Complete with ending the book with worst hurricane ever recorded which huh the bad guys seemed to know was coming so maybe it wasn t all natural Never explored this in the book The Early Girl Gets the Blood Wolf of courseThis bookffended me I feel like Patterson thinks that I have no right to decide for myself what s really happening Diary of a Library Nerd: An Erotic Diary of One Woman's Metamorphosis or not in global warming and that I m so stupid that I need to be scared into doing what he has decided is the right thing And what gets me even is that nobody says a word about this book being such a propaganda tool but if I wrote a book about a groupf kids spreading a counter message that maybe global warming is part The Stonemere Park Breast Essays: From The L.C.T.F. Archives of a natural cycle and that there are issues involved than just human innovation and existence then you can bet a million groups would be descendingn me like I was trying to poison their children s minds by telling them Santa Claus isn t realThe hundred pages Let the Wolf Howl or so that weren t devoted to saying global warmingBAD were enjoyable though More Max and Fang romantic confusion and tension I feel like Patterson has that relationship pretty well fleshedut though I d like to see some closure The Resistible Rise Of Benito Mussolini or at least some forward movement Their relationship really hasn t evolved much from the last book And at the beginningf this book they have the funeral for Ari and I feel so sorry for that kid Rereading the series before I read this book my heart just broke for him He s easily the most tragic character in the series Still I nly felt like maybe a fourth f the book was about the characters a fourth Blue Guide New York on action and a halfn well see above There are so many interactions and relationships that still need to be fleshed ut in the books Max and Jeb especially have a complex relationship that I d like to see keep evolving I rather doubt this really is the last book Patterson left too much pen we still know nothing about the voice and there s a lot about Max and the flock that keeps getting hinted at then abandoned I cringe to think Homesick of another book though as disappointing as thisne was to me A Criminal Affair overall Maybe he ll fast forward a bit let Max grow up some I d really like to see Max be a littlelder because I think her character interactions are at a standstill until she matures a bit then her relationships with Jeb and Fang as well as the rest Sangue Derramado of the flock will be able to expand Edit Yep there is a fifth book listedn Yay Maybe this ne will have character development Or maybe they ve decided to cool ff the world by beating their wings really fastOkay and seriously if you call ne bad guy the director then you know what James Patterson I m gonna hit you ver the head with a thesaurus I m beginning to feel like he doesn t actually read his wn writing nce he s finished Not nly are there three bad guys called the director h sorry ne is the Uber Director but in ne book Confessions of a Teenage Hollywood Star one person was indicated to be The Director and the next book it s someone else He repeats a lotf the same kinds Precious Stones: Their Occult Power and Hidden Significance of things has inconsistent chronology exactly how long does it take to fly somewhere Huh Seems to vary by book never mentioned Nudge was black in the first book at least not that I could find I m thinking he didn t decide that till book two and leaves me wondering how even a windbreaker can cover up their wings enough that they don t look like hunchbacks And yeah the wings thing I really want to see the moviemanga because I cannot picture how it s supposed to work Their wing tips should at least fallver their butt Fourteen feet The Proletarian Revolution and the Renegade Kautsky of actual bone feather and musclenly becomes so compact And they mention cutting slits in jackets but what about their shirts And it doesn t seem like they would be able to just snap their wings ut f those slits as easily as they always do Especially while wearing backpacks and such But Works Days okay enoughver thinking these books I think the the author lectures to me about science and real world stuff the I uestion how unlikely his books are to be able to happen in the real worldSomething else I thought f a few days after finishing the book kay biggest hurricane in recorded history happens That s really really bad right Yet that hurricane is the nly reason Max and the flock get away from the Uber Director Huh Global warming bad But without it Max and the flock were in big trouble Bit f a problem with your message there huh Patterson Once again I don t think he s rereading what he writesMore at Bookwyrm Chrysali. Flock like a hawkBut even in Antarctica trapped in the harshest weather n ur planet Maximum Ride is an irresistible target in constant danger For whoever controls her powers could also control the world Maximum Ride is James Patterson's greatest character a heroine who manages to be human and fearless at nc.
