  1. .ardized sci fi for the Twilight crowd Well this is awkward Everything about The 5th Wave an award winning male young adult author, a high octane alien invasion plot, the comparisons to Ender s Game and The Passage made it seem like it d exactly my kind of book But now that I ve finished, I m just so pissed with the whole thing I have nothing nice to say and really just want to punch something, and in fact, I dislike The 5th Wave so much I ve somehow written not one but three angry rants yeah, b [...]


  2. If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn t turn out very well for the Native Americans Stephen HawkingSometimes, I am lucky enough to get my hands on an ARC of a book and go into it with as close to no expectations as possible I haven t read any reviews before, so the first experience is entirely my own, as I find it And sometimes I love these books Sometimes I give them 4 or 5 star reviews, rated purely based on [...]

  4. If you could buy just one book this year, this one should be at the top of your list I m just going to say it this book could very well be the next The Hunger Games I ve never seen a book likely to be a crowd pleaser, nor one with potential to sweep away a legion of fans This book was so crazily addictive that I read it in literally half a day, and several months afterwards I am still jazzed over its edge of your seat action.What makes this story awesome, and what elevates it above many other [...]


  5. 5 FREAKY ALIEN STARS The first 4 waves were okay but the 5th wave MIND BLOWING.I seriously didn t expect it at all.And the ending was perfect.Actually one of the best book endings of all time.You can find the full review and about this book on my blogI can t describe how much I enjoyed this book.One of the best alien books I have ever read.This is probably going to be on my top ten favorite books on 2014.The style of writing , the characters everything was beyond perfect.I read the book in abou [...]


  6. i am not the kind of person who gets off on hating the things everyone loves i don t really see the value in reading books just to be snarky and contrary and ohhhh, the plebs are eating this up, but iiii am the internet s arbiter of taste and i only read underappreciated, obscure books and thumb my nose at what is popular i do both i have read Twilight, i have read Fifty Shades of Grey i like to know what all the hype is about as much as i like to read bunches of underknown stuff and both those [...]



  7. Warning This rant will contain lots of swearing, and massive anger This is a rant, so I m sorry if there s weird grammar or bad writing I m really not caring that much at this point So, please, bear with me.And please know that by no means do I intend to offend anyone, including the author.DNF Sammy s POV I HATED THIS BOOK Best thing to describe it Boring as fuck.This book was my most anticipated book of the year I was expecting so much after all the hype But guess what This turned out to be the [...]


  8. I have successfully survived all 5 waves.The 1st Wave Confusion Not as good as I thought The 2nd Wave Hope Maybe it gets better The 3rd Wave Boredom zzzzz The 4th Wave Disappointment This is not getting any better The 5th Wave Annoyance Just end already Then why am I even giving it 2 stars Because my hatred for this book does not translate into this being a bad book Some of the best reviewers on GR have loved The Fifth Wave and I totally respect their opinions I guess this was simply not for me. [...]


  9. SO GOOD Loved the writing style, loved the lead characters, full of twists, and wonderfully paced Here s my full blown review discussion youtu ZvFFjazW930 D


  10. Maybe the last human being on Earth won t die of starvation or exposure or as a meal for wild animals.Maybe the last one to die will be killed by the last one alive.The 5th Wave is exhilarating.The story is so thrilling and suspenseful that it ll draw you in before you even get the chance to finish reading the first sentence And it will truly seal you interest when you will get acquainted with all the adventurous, intrepid and bracing characters Cassie Sammy Evan Zombie Ringer It will be hard fo [...]


  11. 1 24 16 Movie Update I finally saw it Mixed feelings Like many of you commented, I think the weakest parts were the romance I hated how the last 1 4 of movie seemed rushed compared to the book and my big pet peeve was that Ben recognized her and knew who her brother was soooooo not how it happened in the book and that when Ben and Evan finally met it was not awkward hilarious because of Cassie s lies and obsessions like the book To me, one of the greatest things about the book was the running jo [...]


  12. Now THIS is how you write a book, ladies and gentleman With the slew of dystopian and post apocalyptic novels coming out you can only imagine how refreshing it is to stumble upon a truly refreshing, incredibly well created novel about an alien apocalypse And don t let this term fool you, aliens may not be running rampant on our planet yet , but Yancey has succeeded in making this event just as realistic as any other world disaster Plus, in my opinion I think it s a little naive to believe we re [...]


  13. I am actually embarrassed for Mr Yancey here, he is a Printz winner after all All the money invested to hype this The Host Redux mumbo jumbo, which makes so little sense if you just think about the plot and the role the children play in this 5th wave, why go into so much trouble, dear aliens I can only explain the popularity of this book by the same sci fi for those who don t read like sci fi effect The Host rode on, because this novel is nothing but a huge cliche with a nauseating romance of th [...]


  14. Pss Pss I have a theory.Want to hear it I m starting to think that Rick Yancey is a genius What does a genius do, you re asking He makes people think they are the genius, by creating a story so predictable that every reader will feel so fucking clever No, no, this is not sarcasm not entirely, anyway See, I was here bitching about how I guessed everything every fucking thing apart from the ear teddy bear rumpled come on, I m not that great when I realized that there was no way I wasn t meant to N [...]

  16. I really enjoyed this book Is it weird though that I preferred the Ben story line, but liked Evan waaaaay better



  17. I really enjoyed this book I wouldn t say it blew my mind or anything, but it was entertaining.


  18. I decided I d get this book done before I see the film and boy was that a good decision I loved the concept behind this book with the numerous waves eventually wiping out humanity and the mysterious aliens behind it The idea unravels to become much than a straightforward explanation or plot with many unpredictable moments involved.I really couldn t predict this book, every time I tried I was wrong and I loved that.Yes, there was cheese and cliches at parts, especially in the dialogue but those [...]


  19. Buddy read with Maggie Let s just hope it s better than the movie.From what I ve heard about the last two, I m also hoping this isn t the Divergent Trilogy 2.0


  20. 5 EXTRATERRESTRIAL STARS How do you rid the earth of humans Rid the humans of their humanity HOLY CRAP This was good I mean, like, extremely, terrifyingly good I have already read plenty of books dealing with aliens and or invasions, but for me this is the best one yet I expected this to be yet another overhyped book series, but boy was I wrong This is the first Rick Yancey novel I ever read and it completely blew me away, I don t even know where to start I wonder why I haven t read this earlier [...]


  21. Me ha gustado mucho el libro Aunque creo que es mas un 4.5 que un 5 Hace rato quer a leer este libro y por alguna raz n no le hab a sacado el tiempo, pero ahora que lo le estoy encantada y deseando leer la continuaci n.La historia mantiene el misterio, vas descubriendo poco a poco una gran cantidad de datos alarmantes que te intrigan mas y mas Y aunque por la mitad del libro sent que el ritmo baj un poco, definitivamente los ltimos cap tulos lo compensaron, acci n, peligro, suspenso, todo a la v [...]


  22. Tried to reread it because of the movie but I still don t get it I choose to start this book because of all the hype that it is having They even had promo posts on the subway The quotes were really interesting and the thing about a strong heroine in an alien invaded earth, how can it be that bad And then we can add the alien earth romance to have the spicy in the food Well, it was promising enough It should have been.The writing in this book is really beautiful It was beautiful, funny and direct [...]


  23. Why oh why did I wait so long to read this This book gripped me from the very first page and didn t let up even when it ended I need The world building was phenomenal and the picture painted was so real, I could see it play by play in my head And Rick s story telling ability is a work of art I loved the way he told the story from didn t pov s and the inner monologues of his characters were the best Especially Cassie, she s a riot It felt like it was one thing after another and the action never [...]

  27. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum That s great, it starts with an earthquake Birds and snakes, an aeroplane Okay, maybe just the aeroplane part Like this It didn t take long for people to realize that The arrival of the mothership was not the beginning, but the beginning of the end Nope, the first wave was followed in quick succession by waves two three and four Leaving only the fifth and final wave before it truly is the end of the world as humans know it Come on You really didn t th [...]


  28. Wow I was blown away by this story I was completely riveted by every single word My heart raced, and I was on the edge of my seat pretty much the entire time The world as we know it is over Aliens came, kicked ass, and all that s left of humanity is three percent of the original population One of the lucky survivors is sixteen year old Cassie She lived through all Four Waves that s decimated the human race, and is trying to stay alive by staying alone, because that s the only way to stay safe Th [...]
