"I just really like this series. Mostly because I like Max. I'm forty ‐ seven, and I want to be Max. How many teenagers must want to be Max? Max is the Superman of the decade." -Brenda Cooper, A Space For Tea (blog) http://www.jamespatterson.com/books_max.php ‘’My friend recommended this book to me because she said the author was great. Once I started I became addicted and now have read all of them before her!’’ http://blogcritics.org/books/article/review-maximum-ride-by- james-patterson/ http://blogcritics.org/books/article/review-maximum-ride-by- james-patterson/
