I have to say, having read the fourth one i was expecting this one to be exactly the same, terrible. But some of my confidence was renewed in the series with this book. Of course nothing will ever compare to the genius of the first three books, especially now that all our favourite aspects (the School, the erasers) have been removed and replaced with global warming, but it wasn't too bad.

In this installment our favourite flying kids and their talking, flying dog, are preaching to the world the horrors of too much pollution when they are attacked by ninja type robots. After recovering from this max learns that their new enemy goes by the name Mr Chu and he wants max and the game to stop campaigning against pollution. He then takes it to a new level by kidnapping Max's mom. The majority of the book then goes onto document how they get her back, with some romance along the way.

Compared to the first three books were youu feel like the books never stop throwing punches, nothing much happens in this one. But it is DEFINETLY a step up from the fourth, and at least this one was funny.

I have read every one of the Maximum Ride novels and when I found there was more to the story I was eager to continue. However, now at the age of 20 I have found that I've probably outgrown the story. Much to my disappointment. The tales of Max and her flock captured my attention at a younger age, it couldn't have been that many years ago, and I would definitely recommend them to any teen readers. This book in particular not so much, but I do feel that is a result of time and not James Patterson's ability at storytelling.

This book is so much better than the last book. I was glad that my theory that the last book was merely a filler between the 3rd book and this one.

It is not as good as the first three but Patterson has definitely bounced back after the abomination that was 'The Final Warning'. It actually has a good amount of action in it and I was almost sad that the M-Geeks seemed to be destroyed. They were on a par with Flyboys, although never as good as Erasers.

If you are a Fax (Fang and Max) fan then you will be overjoyed with this instalment of the series. They have more than one kiss in the whole book! That's a progress in itself. Max doesn't run away after them either which is always good. The flock end up knowing about their progressing relationship, along with a very unhappy Brigid.

Max's humour is as always very dry. It is made obvious in this book that she is growing up emotionally and it makes a good contrast to the previous books.

All in all it was a good book although it did all come down to global warming in the end. The theme wasn't as prominent in this book however and, unlike book four, it didn't seem like a bit of a lecture.

I bought this book because I have enjoyed the trilogy but it was nothing like the first few book. It was as if someone else was writing it! SPOILERS I mean for starters I know that we do need to do something about global warming but I want to read books that make me feel good about myself not books that preach to you about global warming. Another I didn't like about it was that they got more powers. I still Don't understand why fang and max both needed gills. I also still no nothing about Mr chu even though this book was supposed to be based on him taking max's mum who is mentioned in about 4 chapters. I felt as if this book was a book that didn't need to be written. The only reason why I have it 4 stars is because I like the trilogy. I would recommend this book to no one

I started reading this series after reading the Alex cross novels. Although this series is aimed at teens I wouldn't dismiss reading if you are older! (I am 27). I really enjoyed following the loveable characters and after each book in the series couldn't help but wonder what they would be up to next. Very easy casual reading, doesn't require too much attention or thought. I would recommend to anyone, but especially perhaps people who don't really read that often.

With love on the horizon and danger around every corner Maximum Ride: Max has to be the best one yet. Max finally accepts her love for Fang and we find out that stubborn little Angel is right after all. I couldn't recommend the Maximum Ride series enough, all seven books, soon to be eight. They have twists around every corner and the action never stops with a love story chucked in as well there is a little bit for everyone.

i think this book is absolutely amazing, though not as good as the first 2 it is definetly a must have. it continues the witty story of Max and the flock who this time are continuing to campaign against global warming. mr Chu, their new enemy, is trying to stop and will go to very extreme measures. a great book!

I have read this whole series in a week and loved them. I've laughed out loud and found myself wanting to know what is going to happen next with every one, I've found myself really hooked on this series very addictive. I love the characters they are amazing especially the dog total who I find is very funny
