Max By James Patterson

Maximum Ride and the other members of the flock have barely recovered from their last Arctic adventure, when they are confronted by the most frightening catastrophe yet. Millions of fish are dying off the coast of Hawaii and someone--or something--is destroying hundreds of ships. Unable to discover the cause, the government enlists the flock to help them get to the bottom of the disaster before it is too late. While Max and her team are exploring the depths of the ocean, their every move is being carefully tracked by Mr. Chu--a criminal mastermind with his own plans for the flock. Can they protect themselves from Mr. Chu's army of mercenaries and save the ocean from utter destruction?

This is the fifth book in the Maximum Ride series, I had never read them before but I picked up this one.

I really liked the idea for this series it is different and interesting, also what kid does not want to be a hero type thing? The series is interesting and fun and I want to go back and read the rest because of this one!

One of the good things about this book is that you don't absolutely have to have read the other books in the series to understand what is going on. Even though Max keeps talking about other things that have happened before they are not crucial to the rest of the book. It is slightly annoying though but you can get though it with no ill effects.

Parts of the book felt kind of disjointed and unimportant like they could have been left out but eventually they smoothed out. Overall good series!

Check out my 8 book James Patterson prize pack in celebration of MAX coming out in paperback!



  1. I have heard good things about this series. Great review. I'm glad to know you don't have to read them in order.

  2. I've been hearing a lot of great stuff on James Petterson, but I honestly haven't read any books of his, I should check them out. Good review by the way!
