The 5th Wave Review

Hello Munchkins this is yet another review.

The Fifth Wave

Pages: 457

Publisher: G. P. Putnam’s Sons

Genre: Dystopian

Price: 9.99$  on kindle store.

According to GoodReads this book is about:

“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.”

First Thoughts:

  • These characters seemed interesting
  • The plot sounded unique
  • OHHHHH ALIENS
  • I can’t wait to read it and find out how it goes.
  • The cover is pretty
  • I haven’t heard of this author before.

Thoughts I Had During The Book:

  • WOW this is not what I thought it was going to be like.
  • ANOTHER LOVE TRIANGLE
*Rolls Eyes*
  • I don’t understand how this connects to the description
  • Ohhh know I get it.
  • The characters don’t have that much of a background story and they are severely lacking a plot besides the main character.
  • Why yet again another Love Triangle
  • At least it has a well established sibling love relationship.
  • This seems somewhat realistic yet not at the same time.
  • Do any of these character ever use the bathroom or do daily routine shit.
  • This ending sucks.

My final review on it in my own personal opinion is that it didn’t match up to the hype. It has many overused cliches and it didn’t make that much sense to me until I watched the movie. I say you may have better luck understanding the story more if you watch the movie compared to reading the book.

2.5/5 Stars.
