What I liked: -Max. She got some pretty good character development in this book, and I enjoyed her exploring her more feminine side, and I especially liked her date with Sam. I also liked her little jealous streak when Fang got kissed by Lissa, and I liked Fangs equal amount of jealousy towards Sam. I liked the development with Iggy and his family. There is so much useless filler in this series it isnt even funny; its just a waste of paper. James Patterson has the simplest writing style Ive ever come across in all of the books Ive read, and it really annoys me.
The fact that book one hit number one on the NYT best seller list means to me that the author did something right, because a whole lot of people are enjoying it enough to buy it and probably tell their friends to buy it, too. Awesome characters with a cool voice and an interesting story concept and story world can apparently cover for a lot of problems.
Book title: Maximum Ride- School out Forever Author: James Patterson Page: 416 Wow, i start running with Max and the children again. I feel so excited when running in the same ride as Max and the Flocks. I seem like to jump up and down with the Flocks when "watching" them fight with the Eraser. The story makes me become more curious because the people in FBI know exactly about the School in California, about Jeb. Even though the Flocks tried to hide their backgrounds, the FBI people kney that they were lying. I'm feeling that Max gradually loves Fang, expressing through the way she takes care of him, the way she asks him. ******************* Nov 15,2008 This week the ride with Max and the Flocks stops at School. Perhaps the readers will think that the Flocks are brought back to the School in California, a terrible place for them. Patterson partly makes me satisfied because at least the Flocks are treated like the normal kids in this situation. Max saw Fang kissed a girl in School. The new Max still appeared in the story. I am looking forward to seeing some bad news what the new Max can cause to the flocks; but she still did not do anything. I'm very curious about the appearance of the new Max. I don't know what games Patterson is playing with the new Max. I guess this new Max will become a difficult obstacle for the flocks in the future. Even though the author introduces that Anne is a person from FBI, I still think that she also has a secret mission when she told the kids to stay at her house; especially, these kids do not look like the normal ones at all. I wonder if Anne knows all about the kids and pretend to be a good person or she actually helps the kids. I dont know why but I like Max's day. That night, the readers did not see a strong Max who is the leader of the flocks anymore.
and i would like to know WHAT the heck is up with jeb...why, for instance, is he saying "i love you" while trying to kill max at the same time? and the whole imposter max thing was confusing...and the whole end part, too...and why are the whitecoats ON THEIR SIDE but trying to kill them?!?! and what do max and the flock need to save the world from. basically, what i'm trying to say is...this book was great. but...half the time my head was hurting and i was utterly confused, or i had a brain-bashing headache, or i was filled with anger at not understanding what the heck was going on.
In this book, even though it is fiction, I felt I could relate to Max. Multiple times in the story, Max says "I'm so overwhelmed," "This is so overwhelming." I can relate to her because I also feel like I have a lot on my shoulders. In the story, max is confused with who she likes between Fang and another boy she met at school.
One of my biggest complaints for the first novel had been how juvenile it seemed even for the characters' ages and the cheesy dialogue, but I didn't have that problem this time.
Maximum Ride: Schools out Forever starts right where The Angel Experiment left off, continuing with the six genetically engineered children being chased by their main enemies, the Erasers, a wolf/human hybrid. Max and her fellow winged children end up releasing a bunch of other genetically altered animals onto the city, which doesn't go very far, except they adopt a dog that Angel has become attached to.
I love the characters, my favorite character was the Gasman because he's really funny and he makes me laugh. Well what I really love about the book was the part wherein they go to a normal school.
