Revue de presse

"The latest young adults' thriller from James Patterson continues the gripping Maximum Ride series" (5 stars Star Magazine)

"The first in a series from adult-thriller writer Patterson has all the characteristics of his work for grown-ups: pace, action, mystery and cool... sharp and punchy with plenty of jokes and shocks. And it proves that girls can be tough, too" (The Sunday Times)

"Patterson knows where our deepest fears are buried... There's no stopping his imagination" (New York Times Book Review)

"Nonstop action carries this page-turner breathlessly from start to finish... Speed, suspense, excitement" (Kirkus Reviews)

"MAXIMUM RIDE is a fast-paced, action-packed fantasy adventure that children will love" (Age, Melbourne)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Max Ride and her best friends have always had one another's backs. No matter what. Living on the edge as fugitives, they never had a choice. But now they're up against a mysterious and deadly force that's racing across the globe - and just when they need one another the most, Fang is gone. He's creating his own gang that will replace everyone - including Max.

Max is heartbroken over losing Fang, her soulmate, her closest friend. But with Dylan ready and willing to fight by her side, she can no longer deny that his incredible intensity draws her in.

Max, Dylan, and the rest of their friends must soon join with Fang and his new gang for an explosive showdown in Paris. It's unlike anything you've ever imagined . . . or read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Courtesy of Teens Read Too 14 juin 2011
Fang has left, and Max, hurt and bewildered, has no idea how to function anymore. She knows that the world still needs saving - that life is bigger than just the two of them - but it is one thing to say it and another to believe it.

When the deserter, he-whose-name-must-never-be-mentioned, suddenly fires a call their way out of the blue, Max, Dylan, and the gang are dragged into yet another plot for world domination - or, in this case, mass destruction. The Doomsday Group has suddenly sprung up out of nowhere. With its hypnotic figurehead, the DG is gaining followers fast. After witnessing a group rally, the two groups led by Max and Fang journey to the DG's headquarters in an attempt to crush the cult right at its roots.

Never underestimate a group of crazed and fanatical humans, even if they aren't genetically enhanced, even if they aren't the future of mankind, as the DG have started to call Max and her little group. The future of mankind, huh? That is quite a title.

Followers of the MAXIMUM RIDE series have come a long way, from Max's first discovery of her real identity to the various times her gang has successfully thwarted a crazed scientist or politician of some sort. ANGEL, this newest installment of the series, brings forth with it yet another villain to eradicate, which makes it feel as if the former books of the series don't matter at all plot-wise. However, Max has not lost her sarcastic touch and gangstah attitude, and the presence of Dylan creates - yes, you guessed it - a love triangle.

Really, Mr Patterson, I expected more of you. MAXIMUM RIDE started out as a fresh new series and has now been reduced to just another teen paranormal novel, in terms of characterization, at least.

Par For the Love of Books - Publié sur

After reading this book, I was very disappointed. Disappointed in the writing, the flat characters, and the unsolved romantic issues.

Yes, there were some really good moments. The Gasman and Angel are the only solid characters in the book. They have some new sides to them in this book, and we really get to see them opening up. The new Fang's gang had some quirky personalities that were easy to like and comedic, as well. But that was pretty much all the redeeming qualities of this book.

Max is over-the-top emotional. Yes, I understand her choice is difficult between the love of her life Fang and her meant to be soulmate Dylan, but seriously. Dragging your fans through multiple books of this melodramatic crap is too much.

To Mr. Patterson (and his staff of writers who help him with his novels), cut to the point. Please give your fans one last Maximum Ride book worth reading, like the first three books in the series. Give us our old Max back one last time.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Truly heartbroken. But I still liked it. 14 février 2011
Par nsremom - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
I have been a VERY obsessed flock lover since I started the series, but I'm so sorry, that possibly just ruined the whole dang thing. No answered questions, just more aching sick feelings whenever Dylan's name is even mentioned.
I dont wanna spoil it thatttt bad for people who haven't had a chance to drop dead yet, but let me just say that the ending FLIPPING SUCKED!!!
I'm so depressed and heartbroken and even kind of angry that I focused so much of my energy into this series, just to be crushed like this.
I was HYPED when I saw the book in my Kindle home page, THRILLED. Now I'm only feeling sad I started reading it.

James P, I love love love your writing, do NOT get me wrong, you're amazing, but the choices you make?! Seriously, is it Dylan or Fang?

The story line was......okay. The whole bomb thing was cool. Until certain things happen.

Angel was ABSOLUTELY my fave character in this one, by a mile! I loooove Fang, but with the whole 'Maya' thing, I couldn't take it.

Dylan must die. I would do pretty much whatever it takes to see the words in the next book 'And Dylan's life was over.' I'd be thrilled beyond belief.

Anyway, I'm so sorry JP, cuz I love you and all, but I'm just sad :(

Fly on.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Maximum Ride: A Sad Story of Romance Ruining Everything (It Seems) 5 mars 2011
Par Jack - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
When I read them back in 2008, I could not put down the first three Maximum Ride books. I loved the characters, the plots, and found them really suspenseful, but not over-the-top dramatic. Books four and five, while still good, did not have the same exciting plots, which was disappointing. Book six, which had many elements similar to book one, was a step in the right direction, except for one glaring flaw - Dylan. Clearly, James Patterson was trying to attract fans of the (ridiculously laughable) Twilight saga by incorporating elements of eye-rolling romantic drama. While Twilight fans may have enjoyed this, a flock-hard like myself found Dylan completely cringe-worthy. Sadly, book seven, Angel: A Maximum Ride Novel, did not help. Dylan was tolerable when Max hated him, but, as she grew to like him, he became ridiculously annoying. I read Maximum Ride for the sci-fi, action, and plot, not for the hugs, kisses, and drama.
Still, Angel: A Maximum Ride Novel had some strengths. The antagonist, the crazy, brainwashing Doomsday Group, was easily most entertaining villain since the flock was on the run from the school in the early books. Unfortunately, the potential excitement of this group was marred by the presence of Dylan. The hints of romance between Max and Fang in the early books were exciting, but the blatant Twilight-copy that Patterson is trying to create is, pardon my French, suckish.
Speaking of Fang, oh boy. In this book, Fang has gone off and created his own separate flock. While this group of additional genetically enhanced kids has the potential to be exciting, it was not. The characters were ridiculously one dimensional, and were nothing but, well, there. The only reason why Fang left in the first place can be traced back, of course, to Dylan, the cause of all things annoying in recent Maximum Ride books. His flock had no purpose but to give Fang something to do. Clearly, if it weren't for Dylan, this book could have been better in so many ways.
Additionally, this book was ridiculously short. Way too many plot elements were left untied, of course to get you to read Patterson's eighth and final Maximum Ride book, due out next year. I plan on reading this book, not only out of hope that the Doomsday Group can remain exciting, but with some hope that Dylan dies. Maximum Ride is not bad, it just isn't as good as it used to be, which is a shame considering it has the potential to be good again. Again, there is only one character to blame - Dylan.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Soap opera for kids 24 avril 2011
Par Hannibal0020 - Publié sur

I remember when I first read the original Maximum Ride novel "The Angel Experiment". I was immediately captivated by the remarkable heroine, memorable cast of characters, fun storyline about super-powered kids living in a normal world, and an incredible sense of being hunted that I'd never felt in a book before. The series continued this way for two more novels, maintaining this tone for a trilogy. Unfortunatly after the trilogy ended and the series continued, it all went downhill.

Skipping past the absolutely abominable fourth novel "The Final Warning" which was nothing more than a liberal propaganda book in disguise for children, the series lost many essential elements and became more and more like a teenage soap opera than what it originally was: a fun fast paced series about a group of super human children who were being hunted by the scientists who created them. To be fair, the novels "Max" and "Fang" were actually enjoyable, albeit no where close to as good as the original trilogy, it wasn't until I read this newest installment "Angel" that the flaws of this on going series started to hit me.

For starters, there isn't any clear objective or any sense of direction for these stories. In the original trilogy, it was all about survival, family, and eventually: saving the world. With the lack of any sort of antagonists like the originals, there is little to no tension being built, nor does it feel like the heroes are being chased (which was an incredible strong point for the original trilogy). The series has been more about Max's love relationship with Fang and now this newcomer Dylan (who has the personality of sand paper, and he likes to sing for some reason). Even the new covers of the Maximum Ride novels resonate with my beliefs of this switch in tone. Look at any of the covers for the novels and then compare them to the original three's covers. The original covers had Fang standing on top of a building and brooding at the harshness that was their reality and all that they'd lost. It's visually striking as cover art and created a sense of sympathy for the characters. The new covers have a bunch of teenage models posing on the front like they're taking photos for The Gap.

As for the actual novel that I'm supposed to be reviewing "Angel" it revolves around the rift that's been formed between the protagonist Max and her ex-lover Fang. It only becomes harder to deal with when Dylan (her proclaimed perfect mate) continues to push himself toward her in hopes of winning her love. Meanwhile Fang has organized his own collection of super powered kids, for reasons that escape me (they don't really explain it very well). The antagonists come in the form of a massive cult of children known as the "Dooms Day Group", who believe the world should be reborn by killing all the humans through mass genocide and repopulated the earth with mutants like Max and the gang. I have several issues with this premise:
1. Why do they think this way? The reader is never told this, even when they find their supposed leader, you're still left blindsided as to why these kids are complete brainwashed nutjobs. I suppose it will be explained in the final novel.
2. How are they allowed to spread the word the way they do in the story? What kind of school would allow a bunch of kids to hold a large meeting in the gymnasium for global genocide? The kids actually scream "KILL THE HUMANS!"
3. The cult goes on and on about their supposed "One Light" belief. It's some kind of religious philosophy or higher power, I don't know. You know why I don't know? BECAUSE THEY NEVER EXPLAIN THE DAMN THING! We're never given any insight to the brainwashing of the children, other than embracing a new age of super-human splicing. Still it begs to question, why do they think this way? One of the characters even gets temporarily brainwashed by the cult and you're still left in the dust.

I have one final issue, this concerns not just this book but the entire series since the original trilogy ended. The series no longer has any central antagonist or sense of menace. I already explained before that a sense of being chased was one of the series earliest strong points, that's because it had such a great villain. Ari and the Erasers (human-wolf hybrids) were hunters designed to hunt down Max and the Flock. They were terrifying enemies and could easily out muscle them in a fight. Now without them the series has no tension. The Flock was always on their toes, keeping an eye out for people stalking them in fear of being beaten and dragged back to the labs in which they came from. It was incredibly thrilling fiction when I read it years ago. What do we get here? A bunch of mindless little brats who're brainwashed into global genocide, yeah it's kinda disappointing.

After all this you probably think I completely hate the majority of this series. That couldn't be further from the truth, I hold a very special place in my heart for this series which is why I'm so outspoken about its lowpoints "this book, and The Final Warning". I just hope James Patterson can send the series off with a decent final entry.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 My List of Reasons why I am soo thoroughly disappointed int his book 29 avril 2011
Par Trinket 232 - Publié sur
you've been warned
Ok, so I was so disappointed in this book, worse then Fang. I feel as though James Patterson has committed Literary Suicide with this book, this is why:
1. Dylan...nuff said
2. Where'd the action go? is it hiding somewhere? better find it James, maybe it's with all the fans you lost from this book (ooohh sorry that was mean)
3. Max is all emotional, just like she was in Fang. she's not acting like herself. It's annoying.
4. WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE THEY SAVING THE WORLD FROM?? it used to be Global Warming, now it's Doomsday, I'm confuzzled, make up you're mind
5. Maya, which brings me back to
6. Dylan
7. Is Max's hair Blonde or Brown? James keeps switiching it, it's confusing.
8. the whole Fang/Maya thing is just downright unhealthy, it's so obvoius she's the rebound girl because she's exactly like Max.
9. I never liked Fang's blog to begin with, it was a weird way to lay low, but hey it's proven useful once or twice
11. James can't just build up a romantic relationship for like 5 books and demolish it all in one, i liked how they were in Max, where they were cute, but they had their priorities straight
12. When did they get cell phones
13. the more i write the more i miss the first 3 books
14. seriously you need to kill off dylan
15. 'Imprint' Dylan 'imprinted' on Max. did James really just make a twilight reference? Okay it's official, do what you want, but get Dylan out of the way

alright, James you have one last book left. I hope it's not nearly as disappointing, please somehow within your last book clean up this mess you made. pretty please redeem the series.
