The riveting follow-up to the New York Times bestselling The 5th Wave, hailed by Justin Cronin as “wildly entertaining.”
How do you rid the Earth of 7 billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.
Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.
Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.
I’m not sure how to feel about this book. I loved that it continued Cassie’s story from the first book but I just felt like the story was mostly walking and hiding without any other interesting plot developments. I really felt like I would rather be reading The road to Woodbury * Robert Kirkman – The Walking Dead again other than continue with the absolutely boring discussions and lack of events.
Honestly I was disappointed. It had something to do with the way it didn’t capture my attention. I know this is a highly popular book and my opinion is highly unpopular, but it is founded on the idea that this book just sets me on edge. It’s trite and obviously suffering from second book syndrome.
2/5, charity box.
