Don't Bother With It
The CommonSenseMedia reviews have been very underrated with the first three books but I've gotta say they were pretty close this time. The Final Warning was a huge letdown after The Angel Experiment, School's Out- Forever, and Saving The World and Other Extreme Sports. The main plot was just the flock hanging around Antarctica thinking about global warming and Max getting up Fang for talking to some annoying young doctor, and to be honest that and Angel's mindless fall-into-the-crevice was about the most interesting part of it. I agree with CSM that it was pointless for Nudge and Gazzy to develop the 'powers' that are not needed at all throughout the rest of the series. If Patterson wants them to have such abilities there should be more of a point to them than filling up a couple of chapters to talk about them. If I'd known it was going to be this bad I wouldn't have bothered buying it. I wouldn't have missed anything. I was a huge fan of the first 3 books and they are still my favourites EVER, but this book was a waste of my time. The fifth book, MAX, also wasn't that great. Hadn't Max and Fang gotten together in that book would there have been any point in bothering with it either. This book has no real plot (who buys a sci-fi action $30 James Patterson novel to learn about Global Warming? We can find out about this fictional problem through the ABC on TV) and definitely isn't engaging. I read the first three books in 1-2 days, and this one was half the size but took me 5. If you're looking at buying this one, don't bother. You could skip right to the sixth book and miss nearly nothing.
