Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride, better known as Max, knows what it's like to soar above the world. She and all the members of the "Flock" - Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman, and Angel - are just like ordinary kids - only they have wings and can fly. It may seem like a dream come true to some, but their lives can morph into a living nightmare at any time - like when Angel, the youngest member of the "Flock", is kidnapped and taken back to the "School", where she and the others were genetically engineered by sinister scientists. Her friends brave a journey to blazing hot Death Valley, California, to save Angel, but soon enough, they find themselves in yet another nightmare - this one involving fighting off the half-human, half-wolf "Erasers" in New York City.

Whether in the treetops of Central Park or in the bowels of the Manhattan subway system, Max and her adopted family take the ride of their lives. Along the way Max discovers from her old friend and father-figure Jeb - now her betrayed and greatest enemy - that her purpose is to save the world - but can she?

Well I'm hooked!

I stumbled across this story of Maximum Ride in the movie of the same name. I wanted to read the whole story. First I saw it was written by an author I don't usually read and assumed his books were mostly crime dramas. Did not know James Patterson could create such an adorable group of characters. They leaped off the pages and into my heart. To my delight I can see there are a lot of books and stories about these young adults. And I'm hooked enough to feel the need to read them all...so onto the next "Ride"...

I LOVE FANG!!!💗

I've red all the books already but I wanted to try the audiobooks.
My six problems with it are:
1) max sounds really weird like an older lady in a sense and not AT ALL like a teen.
2) Nudge sounds really obnoxious and sounds more like a 6 year old.
3) iggy sounds like a whiny kid
4) gazzy sounds like a pubescent teen
5) Fang (tho he's ma fave) sounds like...idk just weird. Sounds like the narrator was pretending to sound like a man but failing terribly.
And 6) The music. Two words.
JUST. NO.
Other than that I love the book.
I totally love FAX! Go team FAX!!

No the greatest

I have read all the books. And I love love the story. No problems with that. But they was it was recorded and the person reading was not the best choice. From the begging the chapters were messed up. Instead of saying Chapter Two when you pressed on Chapter Two, it said Chapter One. It became confusing. And the voice actor had this annoying voice for one of the characters which took away from the character.

Poor choice of a narrator

I really, REALLY think the narrator was a poor choice. She sounds both too manly, and the whole "I'm going to talk in this goofy joking voice, even when not making a joke" thing is extremely aggravating, and I'm only on the first chapter. I don't plan on continuing to listen, and will just take it as a loss.

THE BEST

This book, is amazing. Yes it’s very long (7 hrs) but the small chapter make it so short, and after every chapter something big happens and makes you beg for more. And can we just talk about the start, omg that made me so interested in the book. This is my second time reading this book and it never gets old. If you want a book like Harry Potter but so much better this is the perfect book for you! I give this 100/10 stars.

Old time fan

I've been reading the Maximum Ride series for years now and I love this narrator. The characters sound appropriately serious when they need to but can still be humorous. There are 14 years or younger after all!

My Favorite Series

I love everything about this series. It inspires imagination and lets the people listening to it be whisked away into this world.
