(3/5) I knew this was coming: the Flock are once again on the run. They never stay in one place for too long. I really enjoyed them having a somewhat stable environment and I just hope in the future they stay in one place instead of moving all the time (worthless hope as I've read the novel series and that does not happen)!
(3/5) The first third of the volume was pretty good, but it started to get really crazy after that and the revelations were all over the place. It was decent enough, but it had to be my least favourite volume so far.
(5/5) We see that Max really can't trust anybody and nobody is safe but the rest of the Flock. I also felt, as I constantly do while reading this series, that Max has to deal with so much as the leader of the Flock. There really is a lot of pressure on her, but we know Max refuses to break despite all this.
(3/5) The most prominent of the characters for me in this volume was Ari, we saw him in a different light and we realize why he's so fixated and angry at Max. There was also this twist with Anne that just came out of nowhere and I really didn't like.
(3/5) At this point, I think I can say nothing is really original about this series. What does makes it different is all the stuff that is packed in, all the revelations that come out of nowhere, and how fast paced it is. While this is different, it loses its charm and becomes tiresome after a while.
(22/30) The plot and revelations are all over the place. This is where it starts getting as crazy as the novel series.
Things that I enjoyed about the manga:
THE AWSOMESAUCE COVER: Need I say more? Nudge looks adorable on the cover, even though her eyes aren't gray.
Iggy. Iggy? Iggy!: There's a bucket-load of Iggy angst in this manga(as in the original book) and I have to say I loved it. For all you who didn't read the actual book, *SPOILER ALERT*. I loved the part when Ig found his parents. I swear, he had me crying. And, plus, he's still sexy, as usual :)
The Design: The way the artist drew these characters were fabulous. Its like they actually look the same they do in real life...just they're eyes aren't that big. My favorite character desingn is Nudge's, though because she looks exactly like how I interpret her to be.
Fax: I'm not usually a die hard Fax fan, but this book brought out the couple in an whole new light. They just looked so freaking cute together.*SPOILER ALERT* Especially the part when Fang flicks Max's head...I cracked up at that.
Max Ride: I dunno, I just really liked her in this manga. Ever since the latest Max Ride book (Angel: A Maximum Ride Book, for those who haven't heard) she kind of just threw me off. But I guess since revisiting her in her old days, I fell back in love with her.
Page 179: There's something there that just made me laugh. If you get the manga, check it out.
Thing's that annoyed me:
How the book ended: I thought that the booked ended a bit too early. And the whole book was just short in period.Read more ›
Soon, Max's haunting image of herself as an Eraser becomes too much to keep hidden any longer and she tells Fang everything. He comforts her in her time of need - what a guy! As the two investigate a lead they happened to come upon, they find a woman who is the spitting image of Iggy, possibly his birth mother. Around the same time, Iggy and Gazzy come upon some startling information. Until two years ago, their school was an insane asylum, The Standish Home for Incurables. The name says it all, doesn't it? I bet the principal of this school used to be a part of the asylum - it would explain his hatred for some certain students.
After giving it a great deal of thought, Max brings the Flock to an abandoned bat cave (not to be confused with Batman's favorite hiding place) to voice her concerns to them - that they must leave Anne's place, lest they become soft. However, due to the overwhelming desire of several of its members to have a real Thanksgiving dinner, she folds and settles for leaving after that. Following a very peaceful holiday, the entire Flock escorts Iggy to his parents' house for an old fashioned family reunion.
Good times don't last, and the situation starts going downhill fast on many fronts. Treachery is afoot, and it approaches from all sides, so the Flock is in for the tensest times of their young lives.Read more ›
