Book Review: Maximum Ride: School's Out Forever - The Maximum Ride Series


Fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride and the other members of the "Flock"--Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel--are just like ordinary kids--only they have wings and can fly. It seems like a dream come true--except that they're being hunted by half-human, half-wolf "Erasers" who can fly, too. 

In Book 2 of the series, the Flock members are taken under the wing of an FBI agent and try to live "normal" lives by going to school, making friends--and continuing their relentless search for their parents. But the Erasers return, forcing the Flock to abandon their search and make their escape once again. The voice inside Max's head keeps telling her that it's up to her to save the world, but this is especially challenging to do when she is faced with her ultimate match: a newer and better version of herself, Maximum Ride II. Max's heart-stopping quest to investigate the mind-blowing mystery of her ultimate destiny continues in the scariest, strangest, and funniest James Patterson novel yet.

My Review

This is the second book in a nine book series written by James Patterson. This book is 416 pages long.

Max and the flock are all back together again and Max has a new "ability". She has a voice in her head... Don't be so surprised, everyone does. It tells Max fortune cookie worthy advice about saving the world. Only now it's getting harder to save such a damaged world. Flying Erasers is a new development and they are chasing the flock. Ari is among the flying erasers and he is full a furious revenge. For those of you that haven't read the first book, Max snapped Ari's neck! While searching for a permanent place to stay, Fang is gravely injured. Next thing they know Fang is in the hospital with the FBI asking all kinds of questions. The director of the FBI moves the flock to her house to keep a lock on the evil scientists' experiments. And, get this, Anne, the FBI Director, wants the flock to go to school! Actual school not that lab full of half-half DNA samples. Only Max isn't really Max. There is two of them, but where is the real Max? Why is the voice telling her to save the world?

I loved this book, too! It was full of suspense and very detailed. It was worded right, so when original Max met new-and-improved Max, you knew exactly which was which. How weird would it be to talk to the spitting image of yourself, even fighting yourself. I mean, you would have the same tactics and fight the same way. To me, it would be like looking in a mirror. I feel like I can really connect to the characters and I was having trouble putting the book down. Gosh, it would be a dream come true to have an author interview with James Patterson! He's probably really busy, but a blogger can dream.
