Re: MAXIMUM RIDE

I'm on the 3rd one right now. and I LOVE this series. I love how a chapter is only 2 pages long, it makes it so easy to read!

I'm on the part where Max jump off the cliff after- well I don't want to give any thing away...

My fav charator is Iggie! I LOVE him!!!  :smileyhappy:

Re: MAXIMUM RIDE

They are amazing! Max is hilarious. lol i read the 1st 4 in about a week and then i had to wait for the last one which was horrible. it felt like it was taking forever for them to release it! but the last one was good and definitely worth the wait...

MAXIMUM RIDE

SPOILERS...... 

Alright so I'm not complaining cause this was a super good book. I loved it! The only thing that I didn't like was that The Max fang relationship moved way to slow. The other thing is does anyone know anything about the movie?

Re: MAXIMUM RIDE

I absolutely looove this seires! The only thing though is that I think the books kind of went down hill after the third book. The fourth and fifth just didn't seem to live up to the original trilogy. Maybe its because he concentrated more on saving the world from pollution rather then the life of the flock. I still love the books though and I'll keep reading them. Hopefully they'll return to there original glory.

Re: MAXIMUM RIDE

I love the Maximum Ride Series. I've been reading them for years. I can't wait for Angel to come out. Speaking of Angel am I the only one who doesn't like her to much. I mean ya sure she's alright but she's just a little......creepy. Just sayin. Anywho I love the Maximum Ride series.

Re: MAXIMUM RIDE

    Fangfan i totally agree with you on angel. That little chick is a little freaky not to metion i would be seriousely annnoyed if she kept reading my mind all the time before i said anything. Man shes lucky she a cute little kid cause if she wasn't max would have kicked he butt to the curb. Though in the book max does sometimes think about kicking her butt lol.

Re: MAXIMUM RIDE

Thanks for all the posts on this series, because I had never even heard of it before.  I just finished the first one last night and I started the second tonight.  I love the concept, the fast pace, the random switches in the point of view and characters (some say they aren't developed enough, but I had a clear picture of each of them just from the first book).  I can't wait to read all the rest!  :robothappy:

Re: MAXIMUM RIDE

Hey!!! Everyone!!! I think I might have found a guy to play fang for when they make the movie!!!! OK, I think that maybe Munro Chambers looks a lot like what I imagine Fang to look like, you know, from Degrassi??? If you don't know who I'm talking about then Google him, Google him right now and tell me!!!!! Tell me if you agree, or if you think I'm CRAZY!!:smileyvery-happy:

Re: MAXIMUM RIDE

Hmm I think he looks kinda like what I imagine Fang to look like, but not quite!
