Tiffany-Krystal Bristol (pinkmerlot) Who is better, Percy Jackson or Maximum Ride? Percy's dad is poisidon but Max has wings.

Maximum Ride is way better. I mean it has way better twists in the plot. Plus the author is more well known.

I just finished Max. It was so good. Maximum Ride is so much better than Percy Jackson.

I would have said Maximum Ride but with this new green twist that JP is's hard to say. I loved the seires more when they were fugatives.

But I just love greek mythology and the PJ was fun to read.

But I think MR wins by a hair.

Yeah, I guess you have a point, everyone loves a rulebraker/fugative better. . .

I haven't read Percy but its gotta be pretty dang good to beat Maximum Ride! Yeah, the 4th wasn't as good (I agree with Karina) but Max is just awesome. She's got wings, and the books have real voice and personality and suspense to them.

lol its really easy to get past the grammatical errors in MR if u understand the storyline

Thank you Jesse! You have to remember that these are children, manly Max who tells the story, that have never ever gone to school, or care for correct grammar since it doesn't put food on the table, so to speak.

I don't know. I'm really starting to love the PJ books way more than the Maximum Ride books. I don't like where JP is taking the series.
