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 last time.

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 'Maya' thing, I couldn't take it.

Dylan must die. I would do pretty much whatever it takes to see the words in the next book 'And Dylan's life was over.' I'd be thrilled beyond belief.

Anyway, I'm so sorry JP, cuz I love you and all, but I'm just sad :(

Fly on.

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 antagonist, the crazy, brainwashing Doomsday Group, was easily most entertaining villain since the flock was on the run from the school in the early books. Unfortunately, the potential excitement of this group was marred by the presence of Dylan. The hints of romance between Max and Fang in the early books were exciting, but the blatant Twilight-copy that Patterson is trying to create is, pardon my French, suckish.
Speaking of Fang, oh boy. In this book, Fang has gone off and created his own separate flock. While this group of additional genetically enhanced kids has the potential to be exciting, it was not. The characters were ridiculously one dimensional, and were nothing but, well, there.

you've been warned
Ok, so I was so disappointed in this book, worse then Fang. I feel as though James Patterson has committed Literary Suicide with this book, this is why:
1. Dylan...nuff said
2. Where'd the action go? is it hiding somewhere? better find it James, maybe it's with all the fans you lost from this book (ooohh sorry that was mean)
3. Max is all emotional, just like she was in Fang. she's not acting like herself. It's annoying.
4. WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE THEY SAVING THE WORLD FROM?? it used to be Global Warming, now it's Doomsday, I'm confuzzled, make up you're mind
5. Maya, which brings me back to
6. Dylan
7. Is Max's hair Blonde or Brown? James keeps switiching it, it's confusing.
8. the whole Fang/Maya thing is just downright unhealthy, it's so obvoius she's the rebound girl because she's exactly like Max.
9. I never liked Fang's blog to begin with, it was a weird way to lay low, but hey it's proven useful once or twice
11. James can't just build up a romantic relationship for like 5 books and demolish it all in one, i liked how they were in Max, where they were cute, but they had their priorities straight
12. When did they get cell phones
13. the more i write the more i miss the first 3 books
14. seriously you need to kill off dylan
15. 'Imprint' Dylan 'imprinted' on Max. did James really just make a twilight reference? Okay it's official, do what you want, but get Dylan out of the way

alright, James you have one last book left. I hope it's not nearly as disappointing, please somehow within your last book clean up this mess you made. pretty please redeem the series.
