5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Books I've Ever Read March 11 2008
By Beka
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As a teenager, I always look for a book that has a bit of everything: romance(just a bit), action, adventure, suspense, and mystery. And Maximum Ride had everything I was looking for, without being too overwhelming.
In summary, the story is about a group of six kids who can fly, and all have amazing abilities that they discover. There's Max, fourteen, the oldest, and the leader,Fang, only four months younger, Iggy, six months younger, and also fourteen, and then there's Nudge, eleven, Gazzy, who's eight, and Angel, who's only six.
Then Angel is kidnapped, and their once-peaceful world is turned upside down- again. So Max and the rest of the "Flock" must go and rescue her from the horrible place they had once fled...facing questions like: Will I survive to see tommorow? Will I ever be normal? What the heck is NORMAL like?
James Patterson weaves a splendid tale of growing up and what family really means, and leaves a satisfying ending open for the next book.
It's full of wit, humour, and lots of kick-butt action. I'd recommend this book for ages eleven and up.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Maximum Ride Story -Part 1 April 18 2006
Format:Hardcover
Maximum ride is a story of its own. It's a story about 6 young kids all under the age of 14 trying to survive on their own. Max, also known as Maximum Ride, is the leader of them bunch. Max, 14, who is also the oldest, has a mission in life, which she does not know about at the beginning. She must save the world. Meanwhile, the other kids -which are known to her as family are Fang and Iggy, both 13, Nudge, 11, Gazzy, 8, and Angel, 6- have a mission as well. To find their parents. But there is one problem. These kids aren't just normal you and me kids, but are 98% human and 2% bird... which means they can fly. The have the ability to fly. There are also another type of species known as erasers, which are part-human, part-wolf. These beasts are on the evil side of the kids, but the kids have one advantage. They can fly and the erasers can't. At the beginning of the book, while the kids go for a stroll, Angel, the youngest of the flock gets captured by some erasers, and gets taken back to "the school". The school is where the kids became mutant. The kids, which do not know, were handed from their parents to the school to become mutant when they were babies.The group of kids quickly go and find the school with obstacles of their own to look after as well. Finally, they get Angel and go to Manhattan to another "School" called the institute. Where they have all little children, becoming mutant held hostage. They free the kids, blow up the intstitue and go lok for their parents. Unfortunately, Max does not have any information about her parents... what will happen next? Read the book and find out!

3.0 out of 5 stars Let-down Aug. 2 2013
By Rose TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
I made a horrible mistake - I went into this book with some expectations.

First, I thought "James Patterson wrote this. He's not some new unknown writer. He's established and well known. This will undoubtedly be well written".
Second, I thought "This book has been really well received and has good ratings, it must be good".
Wrong, wrong, wrong. I was so wrong. I probably would have liked it better if I hadn't had these pre-conceived notions. I may have overlooked some "bothersome" things, like the fact the kids have only lived outside of cages for a few years but they knew how to get to New York and the location of other cities, how to use computers, they even knew the word amniocentesis....I know adults who don't know that word. Too many things didn't make sense.

My final thought on this book - When everyone else was hopping on the young-adult bandwagon, I think Patterson thought to himself "Why not me - easy money and I don't even have to try". Sad....it could have been really great.

I thought this book was really good, i liked how it was a constant adventure and that the characters explored even after the main problem was solved

5.0 out of 5 stars Another super book by Patterson!
I have a few of Patterson's books and this series is way out there. 6 kids that can fly - cool. They have a few different powers that have not all been discovered yet. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Huh?
James Patterson enters the young adult fiction arena with a whimper, with this far-fetched sci-fi saga which borrows heavily from the recycle bin of Dean Koontz. Read more
