The 5th Wave

The 5th Wave - Rick Yancey
I may be the last one, but I am the one still standing. I am the one turning to face the faceless hunter in the woods on an abandoned highway. I am the one not running, not staying, but facing. Because if I am the last one, then I am humanity. And if this is humanity’s last war, then I am the battlefield.

This is going to be a relatively short review because I just don't have the energy to go into a ton of detail. I have been meaning to read this book for a little while now and now that I have finally gotten around to reading it I can't say that I really saw anything all that special in this.


This book started off really well and I did like all of the main characters. Everything went downhill for me when Cassie and Evan first met. This book would have been just fine without the relationship between Cassie and Evan. I liked how strong Cassie was before she met Evan. Once she met him her strength seemed to melt away (until it came back towards the end). I really wanted less romance and more action. That really made me enjoy Ben(Zombie) and Sammy(Nugget)'s parts more as those parts seemed to have most of the action except for towards the end.


Ultimately I felt like this was just okay but not something that really brought anything new. I didn't love it not did I hate it. For those reasons I can't see myself continuing on with this series.
