FANG WILL BE THE FIRST TO DIE.

Maximum Ride is used to living desperately on the run from evil forces sabotaging her quest to save the world—but nothing has ever come as close to destroying her as this horrifying prophetic message. Fang is Max's best friend, her soul mate, her partner in the leadership of her flock of winged children. A life without Fang is a life unimagina

If Fang dies, I'm going to make Patterson rewrite the book. I really will. Fang dying would screw up the series, and unless Angel gains the power to bring back the dead, Fang HAS TO STAY ALIVE! Fax is one of the BEST parts of this series! Particularly since the Erasers, and the School and all those people either don't exist or aren't interested in them anymore. The series was better when the Flock was running.

Well …this is awkward. I've been putting off writing my review for this book all weekend. I guess I'm still absorbing it. I just don't even know where to begin. So, here comes one of Brigid's really long and angry reviews, and it might contain spoilers. Sorry, I don't put spoiler alerts on my reviews because it bothers me––I'm not sure why. Anyway, here goes.

If I could describe Maximum Ride in one word it would be "Why?" Why hasn't this series ended yet? Why do they keep getting published? Why a

Don't kill me for writing this, after all, it’s the truth.

I did NOT like this book at all. To tell the truth, starting from the fourth book, everything plummeted from O.K to BAD. The first three books were okay, they're not great, but tolerable. But the fourth book till this book was HORRIBLE!

Why?
Because James Patterson, the oh so famous author, put way too many variables in the series. I mean, from global warming, to evil Itex corporation, to endanger species, and now to evil scientist that's

Although the series has gone down hill I am still looking forward to his new book. Fang is my favourite character and I've stuck with the series this far I might as well try and finish it. Though, I wish he would go somewhere with them because this series doesn't seem to be concluding.

EDIT
Finally read this book! I'm 20 but I feel the need to finish all series that I start so that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
It's a cute tale, again filled with "Scientists are bad bad people" and "don't mes

Alright, about this book...
There's no specific word to describe it, really. I thought it to be a HUGE letdown and, quite frankly, a waste of my time. I thoroughly enjoyed the first three books of the Maximum Ride Series, but, with The Final Warning and the books following, it has continued to go farther and farther downhill. Breaking it down into element:

Negative Elements:

The Plot - I thought it was hastily strewn together and lacking substance. It was just bad, and the romance didn't help it at

Okay so I really like the Maximum Ride books but lately I have been wanting to burn all of the books!!! Why you may ask???

WARNING SPOILERS:

Okay so
1) Angel is evil then she's not then she is? WHAT?!
2) Dylan shows up and....I don't even want to get into that mess
3) The flock kicks Max out?!? Because she loves Fang or something.....

UGH just UGH this book was awful I don't know what going on with James P but its like he's trying to make the book more interesting and in the proses of that he forget

Recommends it for: Fang fan girls, they'll just eat this one up
I don't know if his books are just getting worse, or if I'm just getting picky. Though thankfully he's not preaching about the enviroment in this one. Basically this book just contains a lot of swooning and the stereotypical dumb evil scientist. Patterson really needs to get new bad guys, all his evil scientists are practically the same person. Though I have to say, I love his use of WTH? :)

Horrible in every sense of the word. I honestly wish there was a rating lower than one star. I'd criticize the plot, but i had trouble actually finding one . Heres an abridged version-Pointless love triangle's, pointless characters, nonexistent plot, nonthreatening villains, a weird song sung by the incredibly dull new character Dylan, horribly written, and honestly insulting to anyone who's a fan of the previous books. Maximum Ride has never been about the romance, yet now its completely overta ...more

i agree with most of the other comments, out of the whole flock i only like fang and iggy. The other books were very confusing and off topic. like i dont even know what happened to that ape and organs in a jar guy, that was just really random. I hope this book makes more sense than the others. But what i was really confused about was mr. ching or whatever his name is? the villains are VERY messed up in this series. i dont even know why i still read this series, but the name of this book says eno ...more

First thought after finishing book: Sucked bad
Second thought: Are you kidding?
Third thought: Really.
Fourth thought: Big mistake.

James Patterson is getting lazier. He’s stretched this series too long, the characters are so unstable, the plot’s all over the place, there’s no story, no humor, the same-old villains, and more mushy romance than ever, and Fax fans are going to gush over this, but count me out.
Nani
I love the entire series and I have every book up to #5. I can't wait for this one to come out. My biggest disappointment in this book would be if they actually let Fang die, cause if they do that I might die. He and Max just started to grow in their relationship, I'm anxious to see what they have in stored for us.

Tipikal cerita yang dipanjang-panjangin hehehehe Nggak ada yang spesial, yang ada malah bikin bingung hahahaha. Nggak tahu mau ngomong apa? Nggak tahu harus komen apa? Kayanya cukup baca Epilognya aja dah...bab-bab sebelumnya ya gitu dah hehehehe

Epilog yang sukses buat gue jadi mengharu biru kala membacanya. Sedih di kala bahagia.

* "Fang" is the dark, handsome love interest for pretty Max, leader of six winged children, in an ongoing series. James Patterson starts with obligatory points. Charitable cause is contributing medicine and food to African poor. Mad scientist villain injects humans for improvements, ignores deformed and dead collateral damage, and fights mindless flunkies. I do not like the repetition common to other books, or the destructive ending.

Fang (Maxium Ride #6) I loved this book, best in the series so far.

Max and her flock are flying to Africa, where her mother's environmental group, Coalition to Stop the Madness (CSM), is hosting a refugee camp to provide food and medical assistance to the needy. The flock is going to hang out and help where they can. They'll be staying in a rustic tent and eating unappetizing things like millet balls. But they've survived much worse, and helping out at the refugee camp goes right in line with th

After an intense mission to save the ocean and Max's mom, the flock encounters yet more problems. Angel predicts something about Fang, that shocks everyone. To add to all this, the flock meets a scientist, Dr.G-H who wants them to be his experiments. Max is also torn between choosing Fang or Dylan,her so called perfect match, for her soul mate. How will Max be able to deal with all this and yet find time for saving the world?

After the amazing, Max book I felt the need to keep on reading.So the b

This was the begining of a downward spiral of what used to be amazing books. I give it four stars because I still have faith in these books, but their heading in a girly, romancy, desperate direction that I'm not okay with.

This was just...a hot mess. Here is why.

I would say Dylan is the worst part of the book, but at least he is programmed to be in love with Max and obviously not meant be a favorite character. The rest of the flock was extremely irritating. Angel, Max has been keeping up with yo
