Review of The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave - Rick Yancey



While I did like this book, part of me felt like it was just another end of the world survival, cant trust the government, so ill try to expose them and make an insane dangerous get away at the end. 


1st Wave: Total Darkness

2nd Wave: Tsunami

3rd Wave: Plague

4th Wave: Silencers

5th Wave: Read to find out!


I did enjoy the writing style, told as a stream conscience.


We start off with following Cassie who is surviving all alone trying to find her brother, who was taken from her. She believes that staying alone is the only way to stay alive. That is until Evan Walker finds her and takes her in. Cassie has to figure out what he is and if she can trust him. 


While I did feel connected to the characters and I was really rooting for them, I felt like it may have been to predictable. We all know by now that when it comes to apocalyptic books and a government program tells you to trust them DON'T. I did enjoy the humor that was written into this book. Our main character Cassie is a sarcastic kick ass lead. Over all I would definitely recommend this, and I can't wait to see where the sequel goes!


We do have other point of views but I cant say without spoiling everything!
