Our customer reviews

Nevermore is the eighth and (thankfully) final novel in the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. The action opens with Max, Dylan, Iggy, Gazzy and Nudge living in Oregon and going to school, trying to be normal kids. Fang's gang, Fang, Maya, Star, Kate, Ratchet and Holden are in California where Fang is monitoring the activity of the 99%ers, an extension of the Doomsday group from the previous novel. Angel, missing since events in Paris, is being held at the School by, you guessed it, those evil scientists, doing nasty experiments and surgical procedures. Much of the Max chapters are filled will teen angst. Lots of nasties from previous books turn up: another version of Ari and the Erasers; Jeb Batchelder; and Gunther-Hagen. The Voice is again heard, by Fang and all the Flock. Once again, we have the situation of the Flock going to rescue one of their members from captivity in a lab full of evil, psychotic scientists: how many times have we done this now? Does saving the world include recycling plots as well as paper? The Flock finally end up on a tropical island paradise, and if that sounds too god to be true, well, of course it is. It is hard to know why Patterson dragged this series out for so long. Or perhaps it isn't; I borrowed this book from the library as I wasn't going to outlay money after the last two. The writing is poor, the plot predictable and the characters wooden. In the first Fang chapter, Patterson even forgot that Fang's gang had six members. I stubbornly stuck with this series even when it went seriously downhill after Saving the World, because I wasn't going to let it beat me: thank god that's over!!show more
