There's one last chance to save the world in Maximum Ride: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports, the closing chapter of James Patterson's thrilling trilogy. The time has arrived for Max and her winged "Flock" to face their ultimate enemy and discover their original purpose: to defeat the takeover of "Re-evolution", a sinister experiment to re-engineer a select population into a scientifically superior master race - and to terminate the rest.

I loved the Maximum Ride series but was very disappointed that only ABRIDGED versions were available. I went out and bought the actual books and so much is lost not having UNABRIDGE. I don't understand this but the story was great.

This was an excellent reading of this story. It made me feel as if I had gone through the wardrobe into Narnia.
