Max (Maximum Ride #5)
While Max and her team are exploring the depths of the ocean, their every move is being carefully tracked by Mr. Chu--a criminal mastermind with his own plans for the flock. Can they protect themselves from Mr. Chu's army of mercenaries and save the ocean from utter destruction?
A James Patterson Pageturner
In the spirit of the most enduring hit movies and books, James Patterson has written this story for readers from 10 to 110. Special care has been taken with the language and content of WATER WINGS.
MAXXXXX! to the Max. lol. Well, uhm, it was okay. A bit
off. It was definitely... interesting, with the Flock (6 avian-hybrids
who are together) having to mingle with society's people. Like,
watching.. uhh, reading about them passing a "BSSTC" test from the
United States Navy. Very amusing to watch them humiliate and defeat
their instructors. But, yeah. Not much excitement, though. New
abilities... Yeah, Max in this book basically has to go and save her
mother... which I find absurd in a way because if she didn't know her
mother, she wouldn't need to save her... but then yeah... And romance
in this book. It's progressed through the series. I'm not sure I like
the way it's going, though. I hope to read more of this series, but
please, please, please. More excitement.
Max and the Flock have gone public, doing air shows and making TV appearances about the effects of global warming. But the School is making bigger and worse robots to attack them. Max's mom is kidnapped, so Max and the Flock set out to find her. They get onboard a naval submarine and try to find a laboratory owned by Mr. Chu underwater. Meanwhile, tension between Max and Fang grows, and Max finds she cares about him more than she originally thought.
Max was a light, quick read, but a very enjoyable one. Max's voice is fun to read, and her personality is easy to relate with. Every character has an interesting, unique relationship with every other character, which is rare and not easy to do. I also love all the personalities of all the characters - they're all unique and feel very real to me. I recommend Max, but don't read it if you haven't already read the first four. I look forward to the next.
