I kept seeing this title, everywhere! The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey- onInstagram, Barnes and Noble, and a few others- I had to find out about it, but I wasn't encouraged to buy it until a friend I met on Goodreads.com. Thanks Vanessa! So I went ahead and picked it up, along with the follow-up, The Infinite Sea. You can't have a story and not find out how it ends, yeah? Okay, so let's get this review on the road!
in there but it's weak so it doesn't distract from the tale. I can't say too much more because I don't do SPOILERS! What I can say is that this story started out über-interesting! I was hooked, even though Cassie's intro was a bit dull. When she begins to finally start sharing things the way my overactive mind requires, I was hooked. It was awesome to hear how The Others rode in and how the world reacted to them, but then the story got slow. Very slow.
Like a good girl, I pressed on. Somewhere around chapter 60 or so, it was back on and I got slightly excited again! The ending was explosive (literally) so I started thinking, the movie should be good. Hopefully it will not be like the book. (Blasphemy?) It'll skip all the crappy parts and come out amazing, I hope. The thing is, it wasn't great, but it wasn't all that grand either. I know it's just me; I expected attacks War of the Worlds and more. So much more, but I can't say much else without telling something I shouldn't.
If you're like me and have to read a book before the movie hits, read this! You'll enjoy it, sans the parts that were slow, but you will like it. Love it? I don't know... maybe, but you'll enjoy it more.
Off to the next book! 📚
