Product Description

Review

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

'Patterson has pulled off a book that's awash with street cred, yoof slang and honest, yearning emotion. His biggest success is in grounding his high-flying youngsters in today's world, making them all the more believable.' (SFX)

Book Description

The stunning 2nd novel in James Patterson's Maximum Ride series.

Stop! Unless you've read the first book in the MAXIMUM RIDE series, THE ANGEL EXPERIMENT, you should not read this review. Although MAXIMUM RIDE: SCHOOL'S OUT--FOREVER, could be read alone, you'll do much better if you read THE ANGEL EXPERIMENT first. Trust me. Read the first book, and then this one, and you'll end up thanking me. Now, if you promise you've already read the first book in the series, hold on to your hats, because the action heats up significantly in this second installment.

Twenty-four hours after Max killed Ari, the bird kids are once again on the run. The whole gang is together again and in one relatively unharmed piece--Max, Fang, Iggy, Gasman, Nudge, Angel, and stray dog, Total. Max is trying hard to forget that when it came to escaping the Erasers (half-human, half-werewolf, read the first book!), she had no choice but to kill Ari in their fight for freedom.

Except, surprise, Ari isn't dead! Jeb and the other doctors at the "school" are still trying to recapture them, and Fang has been deathly wounded. Max knows there is no choice but to get Fang to a real hospital, and she's not even really surprised when the FBI turns up to question them. What does surprise her is the appearance of Anne Walker, a head-honcho who wants Max and the gang to come to her home, where she can protect them, feed and clothe them, and study them. Fang still needs rest, and a roof over their heads and food in their belly at regular intervals sounds like a good idea. Although she's wary of Anne's true motives, Max and her flock move, temporarily, into Anne's home.

This book is one of the greatest books you will ever read.

It continues on from the first book, with the story starting exactly 24 hours after the place where the last one ended; With Max and her 'family' (Fang, Angel, Iggy, Gazzy and Nudge) on their way to DC to find out about their parents.

This book is fantastic and will have you hooked from page 1. I couldn't put it down. The humour throughout the story is as clever as it was in the first book, and the plot is as catchy and imaginitive as it was in The Angel Experiment (The first Maximum Ride book).

I would definately recommend this book to anyone, and even though it is aimed at younger/teenaged readers, it is definately suitable for older readers. It is a very good book, though if you haven't read the first book you may not understand it so well, and I would definately recommend The Anglel Experiment to anyone who hasn't read it already.

Maximum Ride: School's Out Forever is the sequel to the best book of last year (in my opinion) Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment (this was much better than Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince). the character Max is based on one of James Patterson's earlier works - When the Wind Blows and the Lake House, but the Max and characters in The Angel Experiment and School's out forever is not the same as these books.

The book continues from where the previous left over (about 24 hours later), Max, Fang, Iggy, Gasman, Nudge and Angel are heading to Washington based on the information gained from the institude in New York. But Erasers are never far behind, and after a near fatel attack to one of the flock (i won't say who), the bird-human hybrids and caugh up in events which lead to a temporary family and for the first time in their life school!

This sums up the beginning but for the middle and conclusion read this fantasic book, (i was so desperate for this book i ordered the american version). there are sad parts, funny parts, exciting twists and more revelations about the Kids and the school, and raging hormones leading to some tender and interesting tales.

This is the equal in excellence to the Angel Experiment and fans will not be dissapointed, it's best to have read book 1 first as references and scearnios playout based on events from this volume

This book is a fantastic read. My only black mark is that it isn't quite as good as Maximum Ride:The Angel experiment.

Maximum Ride (14, Max for short) is the heroine, which i think is quite good, as it shows that not just boys can be a lead character. Together with Fang(14, who has an eversion to talking), Iggy (14 who is blind because 'scientists' tried to enhance his night vision, also he plays around with exposives), Nudge(11, more than makes up for Fangs lack of talking), Gasman(8, Gazzy for short. He has 'something funky with his digestive system') and Angel(6, who can read minds, and push people into doing things they don't really want to do), Max is out to save the world from something(they don't know what yet). But i can't possibly leave out all the car chases, kidnappings, romance (Max and Fang) and The evil school where the sickest scientists 'made' them.

This is a absolutely fatastic read, but it doesn't really make sence if you haven't read Maximum Ride:The Angel Experiment.
