yeah i just got it yesterday from my public library and it rocks this is one of the best books he has written and ive read almost all of the ones that has come out only one i havent is the one that came out last month
Actually, you don't. Everything is explained in this book over again (there's not much to explain, trust me). I recommend only reading this book, MAX. I like to pretend that The Final Warning never existed, myself. =)
My eleven year old nephew is a huge fan of the Harry Potter series. The Harry Potter books basically showed him how enjoyable reading can be. But I also believe that he thinks it has to be Harry Potter to be fun so I am trying to encourage him to read more often along with a much greater variety. His mother and I are very much avid readers so we would love it if Dylan grew to appreciate books like us. He is extremely excited about my purchase of the Kindle 2 because he thinks it is just too cool!!! (just like his Aunt) So I feel now is the perfect opportunity to introduce him to other authors and books. I just happened to come across this Max series while looking at available books for his age. I personally own every Patterson book written so obviously I thoroughly enjoy his writings that are more adult driven. But strangely enough, I was not familiar with the Maximum books. So to make a long story short (haha), do you fellow readers that have enjoyed this series believe that my nephew would really love and get as excited about them as well? Your reviews and discussion answers have gotten me extremely enthusiastic about Max so I am keeping my fingers crossed!!!! But I don't want to spend the money to download them if he doesn't take advantage and read them. I want to go ahead and thank everyone who takes the time to respond to my question? It is much appreciated!! Happy Reading!!
Yes, he'd love it. I believe I have responded to your comment on the forum titled "Is it appropriate?" See that, please! I'd recommend reading MR4, seeing as it's short and introduces new powers and a new character that is featured in MAX. And it's supposed to have 320 pages, but mine only has 309, yet it does not seem to be defective. If I include the preview of "Witch and Wizard", it still only has 314. Any clues on if there's anything wrong? 'Cause I really don't want to send it back, sentimental value and all (I prefer to own the copy that I first read). No one worry. The fifth was pure awesomeness, and personally, I think it was the funniest. There were some eco-friendly stuff slipped in, and the paragraph on the jacket saying: "When they are confronted with the most frightening ecological catastrophe yet..." makes it appear unattractive, but this time, it works, it fits, and it's subtle and not a political message. Bottome line? It's worth it.
I read the Harry Potter series in fourth grade and think they are the best! And for Maximum Ride (the first one) I read that in 11 hours from when I bought it at Barnes and Noble. I just finished the third one and was a little disappointed when I saw how thin tthe 4th one was compared to the others. Oh well. They probably will all be great. Fang rox meh sox! Yah!
