The 5th Wave Trilogy by Rick Yancey #2: With the final book, The Last Star out in September, the movie out in Jan! It's one exciting time.



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




How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.


THE LAST STAR - COMING SOON.

Finished the book.

Started off kind of interesting. I wasn't too crazy about the multiple POVs. The middle I found pretty boring. I skimmed a lot of it. Kind of liked the twist with Ben and them all winding up together at the end.

Now Evan and Cassie. I did like them to some degree. But I'm not crazy about them. I feel like the whole bad guys/enemy one turning to be a good guy and falling in love with the human is over played.

Yeah, I guess it is. Evan and Cassie isn't for everyone, but I adored them, especially in the second book. It's not as..much as the first book because there is so much else going on and Ringer has more of a POV ( something people didn't like that book 2 seemed to be more Ringer's story -- I didn't mind since I do like her) but you do find out more about Evan's story. After we knew who he was, I knew that person she met in the woods was him.

I know the POVS can be confusing and I did warn you about that But I felt it's something you adjust to. When I first read it, I was moreso confused Ben's POV, since he went by Zombie.

I picked up the POVs thing quickly.

I knew it was Ben because in the first POV when he went to the base his name was used. At first I was confused with the Zombie thing until I realized it was a nickname and they all went by one.

That person she met in the woods? I don't remember that. I knew that silencer pov was him. All along she felt something wasn't right about him and she pretty much ignored that. I remember him saying that he's been following her and found her in the woods but couldn't bring himself to kill her.

I don't think I'll continue with the series.

That's a shame that you don't like it enough to continue.

Yeah, it might have been in the silencer pov, where he was watching her or something.

Yeah, I agree about the multiple POVs even though, it hard to track on who's talking or not..

Even before my suspicions started about Evan I knew what was coming because of a review that I saw on GR that kind of gave it away.
