Heather's Book Review #3 - Maximum Ride


Maximum Ride Book Review
A Novel By: James Patterson
Book Review By: Heather Ngo

They are running. Running away from the fear and the past that has been cruelly fabricated in the hands of others. Maximum Rider and her “family” have escaped from The School, a place where scientists are testing and forming a new species of human kind; pushing the limits of the human body and evolving it into something far beyond belief. Crafted to fly, Maximum is far from a normal girl, facing many decisions that determine their lives, she and her “family” embark on a journey that will determine where they come from, who and where their true families are, and who is their real friends and most importantly, their enemies.
James Patterson is an amazing author, who is superb at fabricating mysterious and thrilling novels. Patterson constantly keeps the reader thrilled and curious about what will happen next by using new and innovative ideas. In the story, Maximum Ride, Patterson focuses on the challenges that Max and her “family” must overcome to survive and figure out their roots. Max struggles through many difficulties and challenges that confront her. She faces Jem, a close father like figure who should be dead, a voice that only she can hear, and the constant reminder that death is approaching and can easy occur if she makes the wrong choices. On top of that, Max is burdened by the responsibility that she has towards her “family” and the fear of falling in to the clutches of the Erasers and the scientists once again. James Patterson clearly demonstrates a great use of words and a variety of vocabulary that sucks the reader in and keeps them engaged in the story and plot. Overall I thought that James Patterson crafted an exquisite novel, which focused deeply on the challenges that Max must overcome to survive and find her family. I would definitely recommend this book to intermediate to advance readers, who love marvelous action-packed stories with an innovative plot line.

  3. Heather you have written and awesome book review, but there where a few mistakes the I noticed Maximums' last name is not Rider it is just Ride, and her father like figure's name is Jeb not Jem... I think that these where all typos :) . Other than that I thought that you described the book really well good job! Do you think that you are doing to read the next books in the series? Let me know :)

  4. Great book review Heather! I have read all of the books in the series. And you have no spoilers in the review either. But you could add the book title on your book review.

  5. Great Review with no spoilers Heather,
    You did a great job telling us what it's about without spoiling it for the people that haven't read it. The thing that I think would make it better is you explaining what the school and erasers are so that you can get them even more interested in the book than they already are.
