The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey Review

Publication Date: May 7, 2013
Publisher: Putnam
Format: Hardcover
Page Count: 457 pages
Source: Bought
Series: The 5th Wave #1


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.


I went in with really high hopes and now I just don't know how I feel about this book anymore.

I guess the biggest problem for me was the switching point of views. It got really confusing and irritating. It wasn't until the point of view switched, it started getting boring.

I feel like I'm the only one who didn't like it. Most people actually loved it and that's why I went it with a high expectation. Plus this was over hyped book with positive reviews. 

The characters where intriguing but the main character Cassie was unbearable for me because she really irritated me.

This isn't my favorite sci-fi / dystopian book with aliens and I don't know what to say because honestly this wasn't my kind of book.
