Book Review: Maximum Ride by James Patterson

Hey guys! Today, I just finished the manga Maximum Ride by James Patterson! LOVED IT. By the way, it also has a series: A novel based (I guess. Not so sure but if you’re interested, it’ll be better to check the author on Goodreads). Okaaay! No more talkin’ and let’s get going!!

Maximum Ride, Vol. 1 (Maximum Ride: The Manga #1)

Maximum Ride, Vol. 1 (Maximum Ride: The Manga, #1)

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 experimented on by a crew of wack jobs.

Her friends brave a journey to blazing hot Death Valley, CA, 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 save the world—but can she?


First off, I would like to thank my friend for letting me borrow this manga! (:

When I first saw this book, I was immediately into it. Though I didn’t know anything about it! Haha! I think that’s because the cover’s beautiful and all. The description’s well written and made me into the book even more.

I really like this Manga! The drawings were good. I wish I can draw like that someday. (Don’t mind me, it’ll never happen)The thing with this book got me like *(@&&*@#%*@!

The plot’s amazing. And I love the idea of having 6 characters that are half human and half birds. While reading this manga, I liked Iggy’s attitude. But I liked Fang’s even more! I love that he’s silent but he’s strong. I don’t know but I really love calm guys. I’m really attracted to such. Hahaha!

My favorite scene or part was when Max woke Angel. The feels oh my! The fact that Angel can read minds and that they both love each other. Ugh, Angel’s so cute.

I loved Max the most. I love her attitude. She’s a strong woman, I must say. I really highly recommend this manga! Totally worth it.
