I picked up this book and my first thought was 'Is this a Maximum Ride Book'? The text was twice as large, the book much thinner and the first ten pages or so were devoted to some rubbish prologue that was never refereed to or mentioned after. What did it tell me? That the flock could fly...and of course I didn't know that!

Patterson changed Max dramatically in this book, losing her feisty tomboy spark and instead making her a preppy cheerful 'in touch with her feelings' sort of girl. Which went down like a ton of bricks with me. Max and Fang also seem to be stuck in some sort of time loop with their relationship. I felt like Patterson had literally rephrased the scene on the cliff in book three and stuck it in here.

Fangs blog which got a few laughs out of me last time seemed to only have been put in to fill up more space and to update the stupider readers on what the plot so far had been. Which leads me to the next point- the plot...If there is one. So Jeb (who now seems to have been totally forgiven)has suggested that the flock potters off to Antarctica and of course, they agree. When there, very little happens apart from some bizarre stuff about a cyborg and some penguins...to tell the truth, my mind had literally switched off at this point so these few chapters just drifted through my mind (which was effectively asleep)without leaving any impression. So, without actually doing any good, the flock are off again but not to the cat-and-mouse game that was so good in the other books. No, they have been captured by a baddie (Itex has now disappeared) we know nothing about and don't care about. The 'Uber' Director. Of what? I told you, we don't know anything about him!

I really enjoyed the first three istallments of Maximum Ride, but this one is a bit of a let down. The villian is not really fully explained and seems totally random at times. The main problem I have with this book is that for long passages it seems that Mr. Patterson is lecturing his readership in the guise of Antartic Scientists with the attitude of a disappointed science teacher. I agree Global Warming is a serious issue and should be highlighted, but there are more methods and opportunties in fiction (especially sci-fi/fantasy fiction) then to quote facts and figures in great chunks.

*WARNING -

!!!!MAJOR SPOILERS!!!-*

Max and company(comprised of Fang,Iggy,Angel and her brother Gazzy)are back for one more flight from James Paterson's book into your mind, this time tackling the wild polar regions of Antartica - for, uh... obvious reasons.To say they experienced some turbulence along the way would be a serious understatement.

Having waited with bated breath for the arrival of this book for almost two years, I felt, when I read it, as if a best friend that I had loved and respected just turned around and physically PUNCHED me in the face.
I was(and still am to the trilogy before) a huge fan of this series and my dissapointment was astronomical at the shoddy and undeveloped slant James Patterson took to his writing.

THIS BOOK WAS SINGULARLY ONE OF THE WORST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ. Do not fear reader, I have reasons for this astonishing, and if I had not read this frankly stupidly lazy piece of melded-together-at-the-last-minute English, I would have thought ridiculous claim.

Okay, here are my manifold reasons. Firstly, the environment. Initially I cringed when I saw what the book was about, but I thought, hey this James Patterson we're talking about, surely he can find some way to pull it off.
Instead, for no particular reason, he took the Flock from that hair raising game of cat and mouse than so intrigued me and stuck them, in, Antartica. To help random scientists. One of which was a cyborg or whatever. Ooops, sorry I didn't sound apathethic did I? That was because I didn't CARE about the character. Patterson gave me no reason to. And look at penguins(that particular lovely piece of trash consisted of the best part of a whole chapter).

James Patterson's great series "Maximum Ride" is back with its next instalment. The previous books have all been fantastic and action all the way.

Max and the flock are all back and so is the next chapter in their story. In this book the flock have altered slightly, their genes mutate which establishes a new set of skills which helps them in their fight for survival. Just as they begin to get used to these changes they have to deal with new emotional challenges.

They are taken to Antarctica, as a group of scientists want some help with the problems to do with global warming.

The flock are being tracked down by a villain, who has a real nasty streak and his sidekicks are deadly. They are so much stronger then they are used to, and certain members of the flock start to wonder could their time be up!

This is another excellent book in the series, were introduced to new characters some with good intentions whilst the others are just driven by evil.

Although I enjoyed this book and found it to be another compulsive read, I did find it lacked a little of the intensity that the previous books had.
