FANNNNNGGGGG! So, I loved Fang in this book but then when he kissed that girl and Max saw I was like "HOW COULD YOU?!?!??!"

LOL, sorry, just had to get that out.

Let's talk about the book in no specific order!!!

- Iggy on the cover=HAWT!
- Fang and Max=HELL YEAHZ!
- Isn't it obvious that Nudge likes Fang
- These fakes names of theirs. XD Captain Terror all the way.
- Starting to dislike Angel.
- Remember when Iggy was crying? Didn't you feel so bad?!!?! I felt so bad for Iggy, I just wanted to
hug him

I liked this book "Maximum Ride, vol.3" because i like when they start fighting with mean things like "The Erasers" and some other mean people that Max, Nudge, Angel, Gazzy, Iggy, and Fang. They all survive but something horrible happens to one of them. Go get the book so you can read it because i know that it was an really awesome book i even rated it 5 stars. The book was so amazing and in this book there is a lot of action, blood, and a lot of fighting. So if you are a kind of person who like ...more

I love these books and was immensely happy when I found out they were going to be adapted into graphic novels.

NaRae Lee does and absolutely fantastic job!!! The drawings a perfect, it captures the emotion well, and you can see the uniqueness in each of the characters.

The only thing that really go to me though was during the swimming scene when Gazzy almost landed on Nudge and when Angel was asking about fish. They were wearing swimsuits...and you couldn't see their wings. Their wings don't just

One of my favourites! I absolutely loved this part in the series and to see it transformed into pictures and text makes the story so much more realistic to me... Because who wouldn't want a world with 98% human and 2% avian mutants to be real?? No joke, I think it would be so cool for that to happen... Aaaaand, I've now realized that I'm rambling on again like I normally do so going to end it by saying that I'm once again thoroughly impressed with this manga series :)

The book I read was Maximum Ride, Vol.3 and this book was written by James Patterson. The Genre of the book is fantasy. The book was mainly about how they went to go visit some of the kids homes, but they didn't find anybody at the homes. Then the erasers hurt fang and they had to go to the hospital, Then the FBI investigated them and they went to go live with one of the agents and the group went to school. The book isn't mainly about the power of love, but it is about judging a book by its cove ...more

This series is a lot of fun. Tons of action, a little romance. I thought the part where they went to school would be boring, but it was hilarious. So far, a great series. Will definitely keep reading!

I must say, Fang looks even smexier than the first two!
The details are amazing, and Narae has the flock down to a science! I can't say much else about this book, becasue it's just too amazing for words.
Although, the Red-Haired Wonder does look like a total s***. (I don't cuss.)
But, it was an amazing book and I loved it!

Maximum Ride is definitely a series I would recommend to others, whether they like comics or stories. Although I didn’t start the series with first book, I could already grasp how the story would go and the art style is something to admire as well. Just reading the third book in the story, makes you feel a close connection to the characters. You worry for their safety and get very hopefully that they’ll win. This book, manga, is about a group of outcasts, who were experimented on, and given wing ...more

This one was just okay. The bird-like kids are trying to blend in with a normal school and pretending to be like their classmates which obviously was not an easy task. Living with the same agent that drilled them, seems a bit unrealistic for me, but nice gesture. She has a beautiful home too. They could be 'free' as a bird, flying around at all hours of the day or night. Literally.

Jealous is brewing for Max as Fang has a love thang. She supposedly is the motherly role, eldest of the pack, and t

Once I actually got started reading this volume, I enjoyed it so much. I find this is a problem I am having with the series, I really like it but I find it really difficult to pick up the next volume.
This volume was a bit over the place, and there's not much I can say without spoilers. I will say however, Max is such a cutie and tbh so is Fang. Everybody seems to be developing more powers and they seem somewhat random, not really much to do with being an avian. But I'll ignore that minor flaw be

Definitely helps to have read the actual book first (this is part of book 2: School's Out Forever), so it doesn't take long to read, maybe 30 minutes if distractions are limited. So I should be able to get through Manga 4-8 (all we have at our library) by tomorrow ^_^ From peaking at the plots, it should make it to book 4 (Book 3: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports; Book 4: The Final Warning).

Spoiler Warning...

The flock is in Washington DC and nothing stays quiet for long as more erasers come for them. However, help comes from an unexpected place and the group gets to spend some time as ‘normal’ children. But even in their down time, they’re still searching for answers and a safe place for them to live in peace.

The volume ends with a preview of another one of James Patterson’s young adult novels as a manga. Daniel X

This series is based on the James Patterson novel series Maximum Ride.

This series is still going strong. What I like about reading these manga volumes is that I can get the story without struggling through the juvenile/young book novels. I can't read the younger books very well anymore. I love description and at least in a graphic novel I can interpret description in the art, which is partly why I love the graphic novels with the good art. This has got both: great art and a good story. I'm looking forward to the fourth installment.

It was a good book it had a lot of action and funny moments but it was also very serious if you have not read book 1 or 2 then they explain what its about i recommend it. A group of people called itex created 6 kids that have wings and super vision and can breath under water and their goal it to destroy itex.

I think the book Maximum Ride Vol. 3 is a really good book because it has action and really exciting moments. I think they could have made the book longer. I chose this book because the first and the second books were really good. The flock also goes to a normal public school. I think people who like reading mangas and who were reading the first two book should read this one.

This is the best one to date. I like the story and the challenges which they are facing while trying to fit in. How is Max supposed to save the world and will they find their real parents? I can't stop reading this series. I also like the preview of Daniel X which was at the end of this volume.

This book is rather good. It is by far the best in the series so far and I was glad to see it. I almost stopped reading the series because of the last book and how little it interested me. Needless to say I enjoyed this one and think that I might just finish the series when I get a chance.
