Review: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports by James Patterson

Title: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports
Author: James Patterson
Series: Maximum Ride series book 3
Genre: Young Adult, Sci-fi

Max finally knows what she must do, save the world, and in doing so they must defeat the "Re-evolution", the group who believes that genetically modified beings are the new generation. However, not everybody seems to be in the same page as Max. Tension is building up in the flock and it seems that Max could not keep her flock together. 

The flock has split between the the boys and the girls. Max doesn't know if they could finish the job they needed to do if the group is split. 

I seriously think that this should have been the last book. I really got the feeling that the next few books would be crap and just another way for the author to earn more money. Well, I can't do anything about that.


I really think that this book could get a five star from me if not for a few problems. Some important aspects in the book just doesn't add up. First is Angel being an inside person, I mean when did they plan that? Max and Angel didn't even have that much time to plan that. Next is Ari suddenly being nice. I mean the idea of actually dying could destroy ones spirit  but Ari just suddenly changed. What happened to all the hate and stuff. There wasn't really a moment of realization or anything. However, the book is actually good when you think about it. The last part, particularly, was heart pumping. Questions have finally been answered.

The only questions here are: how could Max be that good in combat and what happened to the second Max?

Rating: 4.5/5
