Max Ride 5: Max

It’s been a while since I finished it, but with AIMS going on, a Friday afternoon is the first free time to put up a review.

I have to say that I enjoyed Max better than Final Warning. That one seemed more like an extended political pamphlet, with a lack of any worthy villains and not too much plot.

That is somewhat remedied in book five. Now we’ve got Mr. Chu, a megacorporation villain with lots of connections, but that’s the only one that stands out as memorable. We have hunters that seem like they’re going to have character development, but then they blow themselves up.

I miss Ari and the Erasers.

Give Max a chance. It’s better than Final Warning and still has most of the elements that make for a good James Patterson story. We’ve visited it before, but it’s still fun.
