I’ve never really been into science fiction, but when I picked up a copy of The 5th Wave I knew this was going to be an amazing read. I love Cassie, she is the perfect definition of a heroine, and all of the characters were strong and had meaning. The 5th Wave is one of those books that you can’t put down. It’s adrenaline rushing and thought-provoking. If you don’t like thick books, you may be a little disappointed because that books is super thick. It really doesn’t take that long to read, especially if you really get into the story.
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.
This book was amazing, I’ve read The Infinite Sea and I’ve almost finished reading The Last Star, the finale of the trilogy. If you’re a huge sci-fi fan, then book trilogy is perfect for you. After reading the trilogy, I’ve changed my opinion of sci-fi, and I’ll definitely be reading more science fiction.
