Revue de presse

"The plot races along with plenty of action" (Scotland on Sunday)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Max, Fang, Iggy, Gasman, Nudge and Angel are six extraordinary avian hybrids. The result of a cruel Biotech experiment which manipulated their DNA and turned them into recombinant life forms with wings. This flock has endured a turbulent upbringing and they have been continually faced with evil. Evading capture on a daily basis, they have endured torture and been pushed to the very brink of sanity.



Hunted all their lives, they've had to fight life-threatening and belief-defying battles pitting their strength against the fearsome force of their shadowy enemies. But as their predators evolved, their unique ability to fly is no longer enough to save them. With their genes mutating to astonishing affect, the flock establishes a new set of skills to unleash as they strive for survival. But just as they struggle to get to grips with these physical changes, emotionally they face new challenges too: life on the fringe of society can be a lonely existence.



Driven to the wastelands of Antartica, each day brings a new threat for the flock. Danger is never far away and while fighting to save their own skin, they have a new mission to undertake - one with devastating global consequences...

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Condescending... 18 mars 2008
Par Pat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I've read all of James Patterson's other Maximum Rides books and I loved them, they are clearly meant for teenagers without the effort you see other acclaimed writers make to make something appeal to children. Throughout those other novels, I had never really noticed that it had subtle things he thought would appeal to children, the children against the adults concept and so on...

So I really loved his past books and faithfully 'clicked' for the new Maximum Ride book over and over. Now that it's out I find it condescending and he seems to think that teenagers have no intelligence. James Patterson tries to blatantly sell the concept of global warming to his readers, which I understand at 14 I'm rather more well-versed in politics and important issues than other readers, but his writing about it made it seem like he was writing to a little five year old. Much of the book was him blatantly expressing the effects of global warming, and very little of the nail-biting action I've come to expect of this series.

I have absolutely no issue with authors trying to express their opinions through their books, however, when it's done as blatantly and boringly as this is it seems as if it's like an insult to my intelligence. Am I not supposed to notice that this book is basically him trying to sell the concept of global warming to the more impressionable readers? It wouldn't have been bad if he had bothered to be subtle, sort of like the Golden Compass by Philip Pullman (still getting off his controversial ideas to the younger set, yet leaving the chance for ignorance of the underlying themes there), but instead he chose to spend half the (small) book lecturing the reader on Global Warming by Max's sarcastic (for the most part) narration of it.

The beginning of the book was promising, with less adventure than usual but still interesting. Some slightly random events happened that were never fully explained (for those of you who read the book the green wire incident), but on the whole interesting and I was ready for the huge climax and the fun battles or whatever... Yeah not so much . .. By the end I felt like I had read a book meant for a five year old, like all of those little picture books with a moral or point (like telling the story of Hurricane Katrina). Even the 'Bad Guys' were more like something you would come to expect from a show like 'The Replacements' on Disney Channel than something supposedly meant for teenagers.

And the most annoying thing is, he would never have done this in one of his adult series. Anyways, I'm really let-down by how condescending the book seemed after all the excitement and I really hope he'll release a new one next year that mirrors the excitement and suspense of his earlier three books.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Major Letdown 4 avril 2008
Par Karin Perry - Publié sur Amazon.com

The release of a sequel is an anticipated event, especially if the sequel is written by a wildly-popular, best-selling author like James Patterson. Approximately 4.8 million copies have been sold of the previous three books in the Maximum Ride series, so hopes were high that Final Warning, the new installment, would be just as entertaining. When a sequel fails to live up to the standards of the previous books in the series, readers feel let down.

There are three issues that affect the quality of Final Warning. First, there is a lack of adventure in this installment of the action-packed Maximum Ride adventure series. It seemed to be more of an extended brainstorming session instead of actual problem-solving. Second, the length of this book is an issue. For a novel that has a retail price of $20, 272 pages is pretty skimpy -- especially when you consider that The Angel Experiment, the first book in the series, had 432 pages. Finally, and most importantly, is the story itself. If the story had been interesting and new, the reader would be able to overlook the page length. Instead of adding anything new to the story, Patterson chose to focus on the issue of global warming and have The Flock, the six bird kids we've come to love, assist with scientific research in Antarctica. Final Warning appears to be more of a filler book than a necessary part of the series. In fact, if a reader were to skip Final Warning, there probably wouldn't be a problem catching up when a fifth book is published.

Instead of a character-driven storyline, Patterson has given us an extended public service announcement on global warming, and while global warming is a serious issue we need to think about, a young adult adventure novel might not be the best place to hammer the issue home.

I expected a lot more from the next chapter in the Maximum Ride saga. After all, the first three books were all about heart-pounding action, excellent character development, and just the right amount of romance to keep it interesting. Now take all of the first three books and squash them together into a single miniature version without any of the action, and you have The Final Warning. Granted, there are some good points, not to spoil any, but most of them happen towards the beginning of the novel. The last three quarters were, in my opinion, mainly rehashed storylines from the first three books. The action is only seen from the point of view of two characters including Max and Fang's meaningless 'book blog', not the actual blog that exists on the Web. Then there's the fact that the series has become a huge environmental tree-hugging plug as well. Yeah, we know the environment needs to be saved, but you don't have to beat it into our brains by making Max Ride the Eco-Lady of Popular Literature. Is this book what we Maximum Ride fans clicked a million times for? I think not. This one needs a sequel, if the Flock is to be saved.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 How about a re-write? 11 avril 2008
Par Point99 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I bought the first three Maximum Ride books for my twelve-year-old son last Friday. In four days, he had read them all, and so this afternoon, we bought the newest "Final Warning." Thank goodness I only had to pay $12 because the first words out of my son's mouth as he exited his bedroom after an hour and a half reading the brief 270 or so pages were: "Mom, where's the shredder?" He was completely frustrated and disappointed and began to question the entire Maximum Ride series, looking back to see if Mr. Patterson had slipped in propaganda into those books (but which may have been more easily overlooked given the first three books were, in my son's opinion, far superior in plot and action.) Trying his best to come to some positive conclusion about "Final Warning", my son decided that perhaps Mr. Patterson, after having been bugged to write "just one more" Maximum Ride tale, chose to put out this utterly disappointing sequel in order to stave off future requests for more books (and, yes, he used the word "stave".) On top of that, my son felt bad that I had wasted $12 on the book. I reassured him and told him he ought to re-write the book himself this summer, as he thinks the story should have been told. Either that, or we could mail our copy of "Final Warning" back to Mr. Patterson. Both ideas put a smile back on his face. My son's final recommendation: don't bother with "Final Warning."

1.0 étoiles sur 5 The Other M. Ride books were so much better... 19 septembre 2008
Par Amaya - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I am an avid fan of the Maximum Ride books. I loved the other books of the series, but I couldn't stand this one.

This book was one of the few books I wish I'd never bought. It wasn't exciting at all -- it lacked plot and action. I was expecting a can't-put-it-down action-packed book, like in The Angel Experiment. All I got, however, was global warming propaganda.

The plot was basically nonexistant. The flock has survived Itex and the Director. So now what do they do? After a semi-interesting introduction in Washington DC, they take a random trip to Antarctica. They're traveling with scientists to study global warming. Why? Dr. Martinez thinks it's a good idea. Meanwhile, the new villian, The Uber-Directer (what kind of name is that, seriously?!), is gearing up to try and capture the flock. The flock have fun in Antarctica, learning about global warming (and, of course, passing every bit of global warming information to the reader), and having little pointless adventures.
(slight spoilers follow)
Eventually, they are caputured and the climax of the novel occurs. I was expecting a carefully planned out action climax. Instead, it was just so boring! The Uber-Director's "evil" plot was just so stupid and unexciting. And then the flock easily escapes without a scratch.

The thing that bothered me most about the book, however, was the propaganda (at least that's how I thought of it). The book is full of global warming information and statistics. Max submits easily to the idea of global warming and embraces it wholeheartedly. She then spends the end of the book lecturing the reader about global warming and its harmful effects. I wouldn't have minded a little bit about global warming, but it just felt like the whole book was simply written to spread the idea, not to share Max's adventures with the world. This really dissapointed me. I just feel like I picked up the book to enjoy a good novel, not to read a bunch of propaganda.

So, to conclude my rather lengthy review? I wouldn't reccommend this book. If you're a fan of Max Ride, stop at book 3 so you can still remember the series fondly. This book had virtually no plot. There wasn't really much character development. In my humble opinion, it simply wasn't worth reading.
