I want to start out by saying that I've read the actual books, and that I know the graphic novels aren't suppose to be exactly like them or as good as them. But that doesn't mean they should be bad, making me not want to read them!
Things wrong with them-
1) No enough detail/background -if I hadn't read the books, I would be kinda lost.
2) They take WAY to long to create-If it takes 12 months to make one of this poor of quality, I say something needs to change.
3)Out of all of the current five out

Case and point, this smexy pirate:

So when it comes to Maximum Ride: The Manga I doubt it shocks anyone that I adore Fang!!

I never really know what to say about manga.... I liked it, it was cute but it's not a meal to me, it's just a snack.

Surly teenagers and kids with wings..... what can go wrong?!

That's it. This is becoming my favorite series. And this volume was even better. And of course it ends at a cliffhanger. I thank you for that and am like really you're ending it there?! Cute cover. Oh and helps that I like Fang. He, he awesome. New favorite ship? Yes.

The only thing that disappointed me in this volume of the series was that Narae failed to put in everyone's favorite line: "I vill no destroy de Snickhas bahrs." (Or however you spell it with that accent in mind.) I loved the artwork in this one. My favorite picture was one from the chapter pages, which was of Ari when he was younger with his older self. I loved the contrast between the two and think that the next volume will be just as enjoyable as this one was.

I loved this book and thought that it was a great edition to the series. I have been hooked on this series and this book was one of my favorite books in the series. With an exiting plot and many unseen twists this book kept me at the edge of my seat. Truly making me want to read the next instalment of the series. I give this book a high rating because of its importance to the series and how much it made me want to read more. I finished this book in less than a day but it took me a while to updat ...more

'Maximum Ride, Vol. 5' is REALLY starting to pick up the pace. Lots of new action and ideas emerge in this lovely instalment. Angel does surprising things and Fang and Max finally admit their feeling for each other. Somewhat. HOORAY! I really miss the full colour drawings on the first few pages and have gotten used to reading manga. Big eyes are still weirding me out but are not a repellent anymore. The instalment also closely follows the original novel series which is awesome!

Maximum Ride vol.5
By: James Patterson

Escaping the laboratory, running away, heading to New York, and hiding from the “erasers”! Maximum ride is a young adult, fantasy, and science fiction. I think that this book is my favorite because the "flock" gets into problems with the scientist from “the school”.

The setting is taking place in Florida in the present. Some characters that in the story are Max, Fang, and Angel. Max is the oldest member of the "flock", she is the leader of

Other than the twist (view spoiler) the story was really quite good. The pace was quick, but maintained coherency. I was a bit confused by the idea that all the kids, except Max, just wanted to hide from the end of the world instead of trying to do something. I would have figured there would have been at least one other hold out if only because he didn't understand the danger. I also really wanted to hit Angel; probably more the doct ...more

But if you've been reading the Maximum Ride series or my reviews on the previous volumes then you know this. The kids might always get a break but it's always short lived and if Fang and the gang...ha-ha. If the guys think they are going to be able to just disappear then they are kidding themselves so I don't blame Max when she gets upset with their sudden "screw everyone else" attitude but despite her disagreeing with them she's outnumbered and has no choice but to go house hunting with Fang.

Another great addition to the series!! Jammed packed with action, there is never a dull moment in Max’s life. I love this series! As always it is difficult to review these because I don’t want to give away the story and ruin the adventure for you.

Max is amazing with her strength and not giving up her morals even though they are seen as deficits. Unfortunately, her flock suffers an even bigger betrayal and

Maximum ride is a book series about a girl that is supposed to save the world. I read the first volume to this series. In this book Max and a group of kids she calls her flock escape from a place called The School. This place is a science lab that experiments on humans and animals. Max and her flock are special because they have wings and can fly. People from The School are always trying to catch Max and her flock. One of the people trying to catch her is her brother who is part wolf and part hu ...more

I didn't read book four (so missed out on the ITEX plot) but will read all the novels. I feel sorry for the other Max as she isn't treated as a person since she'll never live up to Max. Fang's haircut is hot, just saying. It's smart for Fang to blog what's happening to them. I'm surprised people noticed the bird kids so quickly in the football stadium. It would be hard to decide to save the world, so I understand Fang's reluctance. Fang and Max kissed, yes! I ship it! It was smart for Max to get ...more

Why are the volumes getting shorter? Why???

Anyway, this volume was pretty interesting: all experiments (like the bird kids and Erasers) are being killed off, along with the new plan that will reduce the world's population by half being set in motion. Plus, fearless leader Max is beginning to realize just how much of a part she might be in the whole thing, and with the kids wanting to find a permanent home and Fang acting weird, what's a girl to do?

Finally, the kiss! I have been looking forward t

I chose this book because i have read the previous books in the series. In this book, Max understands that she is meant to save the world. However, her leader is more focused on staying in her path leading to destiny. The gang is also more laid back and is waiting to see how everything will turn out. Finally, the Erasers are out of their lives, so they will be little distraction. My favorite quote is "They're all pictures of baby Gasman." This is my favorite quote because they had seen the same ...more

I was tempted to give this one star because of the plot twist: (view spoiler) Words cannot describe how much I hate that plot twist. However, infuriating plot twist aside, it was an okay book/series. My thoughts on the series as a whole can be summed up with "cool ideas, poor execution". I'm still undecided whether I want to continue the series or not at this point.

I will say one thing: I'm glad I'm reading the graphic novel versions instead of the novels. At

Maximum ride vol. 5 by James Patterson is an interesting book that keeps on telling the tale of Max and her friends. In this book Max and her friends escape a facility called "Itex" which contains information about Max and her friends. After they escape Max wakes up and see's that she is tied up to a bed and she is in the same building called the school that she escaped in the first book. Her brother Aries is not evil and all her friends do not have their abilities anymore. My favorite quote is ...more

I chose this book since it was the last book in the series. The book is about how the flock splits up and gets captured while Max and Fang go and get the chip out of Max's hand. Later they wake up chained in beds in the school and are said to be "expired" soon by Jeb. My favorite quote is when Anne said, "Your at school, Max, because you never left it." What Anne was trying to say was that everything was a dream. I really enjoyed the author's writing style because there was a lot of action in th ...more
