Great Series

I loved it just like all the other books. I hope there is a sequel even though this is the last.

Again?

Amazon Prime isn't all it's supposed to be. Okay, I know that has nothing to do with the book at hand, but it affects how I felt as I went into it. You see, when you have Amazon Prime, you can have a family account. How exciting is that? That means we shouldn't have to replicate purchases. My husband has a normal amount of books in his Kindle collection. The Maximum Ride Forever was a part of it. I tried to borrow it.

Okay, let me back up here. I have a full public library's amount of Kindle books and I get more every day. With Prime, my poor husband was getting all my books onto his Fire carousel. So he called Amazon and they worked him through a couple fixes (two phone calls). He thought he had it fixed. But as of that moment, his copy of Maximum Ride Forever disappeared from my carousel with only 15% read. After much hassle, we decided to sign him into my Audible so I could listen to it on my tablet. Phooey with the book. So I spent my day listening to the story while I sewed. Not a bad way to read, huh?

Kasey Lee Huizinga does an amazing job as narrator for the story. She encompasses Max's attitude. She does all the characters with the acting skills that should be on Broadway. BUT...

I just wasn't thrilled with yet another Maximum Ride book that seemed the same as the last few. Boring! Even in the height of adventure, even with bad things happening left and right, it seemed the same story as last time and the time before. Sure, it was a distraction I was glad to put my non-sewing mind to. Still, I found myself calling out to the room, "Again?" I know. What do I want for a post-apocalyptic world that still had mutants in it? There were a couple surprises but I shall not place a spoiler here if you can read it and be as surprised as I was with each... bad or good surprises.

By the way, I think that listening to Maximum Ride is far better than reading it. Get the Audible version if you can. Just an FYI: the Kindle version is $9.99. Too high for me. But it does have text-to-speech. It may not be as much fun as with Kasey Lee Huizinga, but it could help the story go faster as you drive and listen.

Terrible Narrator. Weakest book in the series

Weakest book in the Maximum Ride series. One of the worst narrators I've encountered in an Audible book, the voices were very stilted, and even too old for the character, such as the voice she uses for Gazzy. Basically, most of the male voices sounded stiff and unnatural. And the story was scattered and poorly developed. The earlier books in the series are far better stories. I returned the book, not worth a credit.

Strong finish for a good series!

The narrator does a decent job capturing the feelings and mindset of the characters, as the book takes you through the full range of emotions from elation to humor to sadness to anger, and points in between, culminating in an exciting albeit predictable ending. Obviously a must read for those of you who have read at least some of the books, so you can find out how it all ends! However, first-timers new to the series will feel lost and confused at times, so I would not recommend it as a stand-alone book. Epilogue sets up Patterson's newer book, Hawk, which picks up maybe 12 or so years after the events of Maximum Ride Forever.

Cheers to the author!

Wow! Couldn't stop listening. Once again James Patterson's storytelling expertise rises above the rest. There is nothing like losing yourself in one of his amazing tales and feeling good when it's all said and done. Cheers to the author! Long will his books survive.....long after we are gone.

Disappointed

This is not the finale I expected or hoped for. The fact that the main character takes the backstage towards the end weakens her position as flock leader to me.
