At last! A Maximum Ride I couldn't put down.

That is, half of it. At long last, Patterson answers some questions and cuts the flock in half, so that the reader can switch between one half and the next rather than reading about all the travel time. I felt like the flow was better in this one, there were unexpected twists and turns, and Saving the World - and Other Extreme Sports renewed my faith in the hype about the Maximum Ride series... enough that I will be picking up the next book when I run out of things to read.

However, for me, this book wasn't perfect. Understanding that it is intended for younger readers, some of the goings-on, especially under Fang's plotline with his blog, just didn't do it for me as a reader. I do, however, think that younger readers will enjoy that plotline - it is the idea of kids (not just the flock, but all kids) making a stand, and I like the premise behind it, even if she my point of view it felt a little cheesy. I genuinely believe that if I were five, six years younger, I would've loved that angle. Really.

And, lo, do I sense a little state-of-the-world disgruntlement, James Patterson? I do like the ideas behind the series - genetic biology, environmentalism - even when I find the characters a little much. ( )

There is never really an change in the formula for the Maximum Ride series, but why change a winner? ( )

The time has come for Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel to face their ultimate enemy and, despite many obstacles, try to save the world from a sinister plan to re-engineer a select population into a scientifically superior master race.

Read a bit of this, and several other youth novels by Patterson. He is without doubt the worst best-selling author I have ever encountered.
