Maximum Ride: A Sad Story of Romance Ruining Everything (It Seems), March 5, 2011

Angel: A Maximum Ride Novel
When I read them back in 2008, I could not put down the first three Maximum Ride books. I loved the characters, the plots, and found them really suspenseful, but not over-the-top dramatic. Books four and five, while still good, did not have the same exciting plots, which was disappointing. Book six, which had many elements similar to book one, was a step in the right direction, except for one glaring flaw - Dylan. Clearly, James Patterson was trying to attract fans of the (ridiculously laughable) Twilight saga by incorporating elements of eye-rolling romantic drama. While Twilight fans may have enjoyed this, a flock-hard like myself found Dylan completely cringe-worthy. Sadly, book seven, Angel: A Maximum Ride Novel, did not help. Dylan was tolerable when Max hated him, but, as she grew to like him, he became ridiculously annoying. I read Maximum Ride for the sci-fi, action, and plot, not for the hugs, kisses, and drama.Still, Angel: A Maximum Ride Novel had some strengths. The...

I have been a VERY obsessed flock lover since I started the series, but I'm so sorry, that possibly just ruined the whole dang thing. No answered questions, just more aching sick feelings whenever Dylan's name is even mentioned.I dont wanna spoil it thatttt bad for people who haven't had a chance to drop dead yet, but let me just say that the ending FLIPPING SUCKED!!!I'm so depressed and heartbroken and even kind of angry that I focused so much of my energy into this series, just to be crushed like this.I was HYPED when I saw the book in my Kindle home page, THRILLED. Now I'm only feeling sad I started reading it.James P, I love love love your writing, do NOT get me wrong, you're amazing, but the choices you make?! Seriously, is it Dylan or Fang?The story line was......okay. The whole bomb thing was cool. Until certain things happen.Angel was ABSOLUTELY my fave character in this one, by a mile! I loooove Fang, but with the whole...

After reading this book, I was very disappointed. Disappointed in the writing, the flat characters, and the unsolved romantic issues.Yes, there were some really good moments. The Gasman and Angel are the only solid characters in the book. They have some new sides to them in this book, and we really get to see them opening up. The new Fang's gang had some quirky personalities that were easy to like and comedic, as well. But that was pretty much all the redeeming qualities of this book.Max is over-the-top emotional. Yes, I understand her choice is difficult between the love of her life Fang and her meant to be soulmate Dylan, but seriously. Dragging your fans through multiple books of this melodramatic crap is too much.To Mr. Patterson (and his staff of writers who help him with his novels), cut to the point. Please give your fans one last Maximum Ride book worth reading, like the first three books in the series. Give us our old Max back one...
