The 5th Wave
Author: Rick Yancey
Genre: Apocalypse/Young Adult
Description: Cassie survived all 4 waves. Can she survive the 5th one? The 5th Wave is about how aliens are invading Earth and as we try to make peace with them all they want to eliminate all human beings. First it was the first wave, then the second, then the third, then the fourth, and now the fifth. Cassie is alone. She doesn’t trust anyone. All she is trying to do is save her brother Sammy. She still remember her old life, how she was a goodie goodie. Now she is the killing Cassie. She remember her best friends, her crush since third grade (Ben Parish) and how normal she was. When she is on her way to go find her brother she bumbs int the lovely Evan Walker who was at first trying to kill her and now wants to help her. While Evan and Cassie are looking for Sammy, he is looked out for. He is looked out by Zombie also known as Ben Parish. This story is amazing. This probably my third time rereading this book and the second book. Now I am waiting for that third book. Not only that but the 5th Wave movie is coming out and ugh why 2016? All I have to say is READ THIS BOOK IF YOU SEEN MY FAVORITES LIST THIS SERIES IS ON IT.
My Review: *spoiler-free* As you can tell by the description this book is amazing. You will love all the characters, especially Evan, Cassie, and Ben. Cassie is one of those girls that other girls want to be. Looking for a fight, but a fight so she can save her brother. She cares about her family and her world. My favorite point-of-view chapters was Cassie’s because she is hilarious. She jokes about the smallest things and I love that she can be this way in a situation like this. Now lets talk about Mr. Ben Parish. The way that Cassie described him, the way that her described himself. All I could think about was a second Will or Jace. Like seriously?! Why does every perfect guy need t be in books and not in the real world. It is so unfair. Just like I say in the description. READ THE BOOK! You will not be disappointed. At first I was uneasy about reading this book because….aliens. But seriously just read it. Your homework right now is to read it. *spoiler-filled*My absolutely favorite part was when Cassie kept talking about the babies. You know the babies. The conversation she had with Ben in the third grade. It was so funny at the end how she asked him about and he didn’t remember and she just kept quiet about it because she was so sure she would remember it.The only thing that I don’t trust is Ringer. I mean I know Ben likes her and all, but I am kinda Team Ben for Cassie, but don’t worry I love evan too. I just like Ben a little better. Its so frustrating these love triangles.
