Book Review – The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave #1

The 5th Wave #1

‘After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one. Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.’ (Goodreads) (480 pages, 7th May, 2014, Putnam Juvenile)

OMG, this book was amazing! Definitely one of my favorites I read this year. This book drew me in from page one, and didn’t let me go! I read this book, because book two, The Infinite Sea, came out this month and I wanted to marathon them… but I just couldn’t wait anymore…

It did take me a while to see that the different parts were told from different point of views, but I liked it. I felt in love with the cute little nugget and it was so smart to put a little brother in this story, because you immediately feel compassion toward him and toward Cassie. You’re just rooting for them to find each other and you hope Cassie will be on time to save him. Throughout the book I was thinking what I would do if it was one of my sisters there. And that is just the power of this book.

I definitely can’t wait to read the next book!
