Your Seat ActionWhat Makes This Story Awesome seat actionWhat makes this story awesome what elevates it above many other action oriented novels is really the writing taut plotting a strong narrative voice snarky humor and a masterful feeling of grim tension that can only be relieved if you turn the pages fast enough The full text of this review appears in The Midnight Garden An advance copy was provided by the publisher 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 "didn t turn out very 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 the emotional high I experienced I am an emotional reader and an emotional rater afterall Sometimes these books get read by a few people and isappear and sometimes they take off and become huge gaining ever praise and criticism It is this latter experience that always has a strange effect on meBecause when I read The 5th Wave I enjoyed it immensely Enough even to write a song with my sister inspired by it I thought it was atmospheric and perfectly creepy I could sense the World Religions At Your Fingertips distrust and fear in the air But later after time had passed and the immediate emotional effect had waned I was reading the negative reviews and felt somewhat embarrassed by my part in the hypeWas it really that good Toeserve all this hype Is any book ever that good Should I have been critical Should I be embarrassed by my gushy bright eyed emotional response I feel this way about so many books that I rave about early and that become huge later An Ember in the Ashes is another good example People say they The Way of the Warrior don t understand the hype that The 5th Waveoesn t even eserve to be classed as science fiction that it is literally the worst book I have ever read And I find myself post emotional response agreeing to many things saidIs The 5th Wave really that original I guess not Is it so mind blowing that it eserved all that gushy praise I gave it Maybe it wasn t Look at it for what it is and can you honestly say it s that good Probably notAnd yet I read it again knowing what I Superdate did not know the first time around I read it and I once again felt that atmosphere of loneliness sadness andistrust It s not a logical thing and it might not make sense to a lot of people but it pulls me so entirely inside this bookMaybe emotional responses Eruption! (DK Readers L2) don t hold up under a critical eye Maybe this bookoesn t objectively Star Wars (DK Readers Level 1) deserve the praise I heap upon it All I know is that for a little while this book took me completely out of this world and affected me enough that I wanted to gush and praise and write a songI won t offer promises of originality or great science fiction I ll just stand as an example of someone who read this book in 2013 and again now and for whatever reason loved itBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Pinterest.

Review ñ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ô Rick YanceyS last war then I am the battlefield I had it all wrong he says Before I found you I thought the only way to hold on was to find something to live for It isn t To hold on you have to find something you re willing to ie for Sarcasm Rocket Stocks doesn t appear to work on him If that s true I m in trouble It s my normal mode of communication I am a shark Cassie he says slowlyrawing the words out as if he might be speaking to me for the last time Looking into my eyes with tears in his as if he s seeing me for the last time A shark who Biological Science (6th Edition) dreamed he was a man What were they thinking It s an alien apocalypse uick grab the beer I took one look at it andemanded that he name three things he isn t good atRoller skating singing and talking to girlsYou left out stalking I told him as he helped me out of the bed I can always tell when you re lurking around cornersYou only asked for three Is this how humanity waves good byeHell no I highly recommend this book to those who like aliensparanormal stuffIt s a great fun readI want to thank the author for this incredible bookOne of my all time favorites Pictures from the review are not mine I took them mostly from Google images or Tumblr bastardized sci fi for the Twilight crowdWell 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 The Tyranny of Milk 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 Iislike The 5th Wave so much I ve somehow written not one but three angry rants yeah be warned this is going to be brutally honestRant Number 1 The Alien Invasion is Beyond DisappointingThe 5th Wave is not Ender s Game The 5th Wave is not The Passage The 5th Wave shouldn t even ualify as science fiction unless it s being mentioned in the same breath as Jennifer Armentrout s Lux series even Stephenie Meyer s The Host is too good for this comparison Why Because there s just nothing here but a collection of alien invasion tropes leading to an actual plot that s all over the place part cringe worthy young adult romance which I never would have expected outside of the usual suspects but that s the topic of the next rant part bizarre military training seuence hence the unfounded comparisons to Ender s Game see rant number three all leading to a nonsensical alien conspiracy by a group of Others who if they Beirut Rules d really been studying us and planning ouremise for as long as they claim rather than the harebrained scheme they ve concocted to break humanity should ve just taken their cues from this awesome gameIn fact I ve seen my share of memorable alien invasion plots Independence Day Animorphs V Between Falling Skies War of the Worlds and Invasion America Steven Spielberg has even The Bengalis done it three times So at this point count me unsurprised by the basic premise of The 5th Wave but even so I still wasn t prepared for howerivative this book actually is coughinfestation with obvious red herringcoughBut on t get me wrong I m not exactly looking for new and original I "JUST WANTED SOMETHING THAT I DON "wanted something that I on know isn t a clichefest Any serious well The Legends of Pensam done treatment would have sufficed and yet I m wracking my head trying to think of anything else remotely this bad and I just can t There just isn t anything interesting about The 5th Wave that made me want to invest in the story it s great that Rick Yancey seems to have latched on to Stephen Hawking s idea that if aliens ever visited we all be like the Native Americans Pickpocket during the colonial era but the Waves themselves are just so generic compared to every other imagined alien attack that Cassie Sullivan sescriptions of the Other s invasion come across like the melodramatic whining of someone too clueless and naive to appreciate the power of an alien invasion than the gritty recollections of a hardened survivor who s experienced the horrors of the attacks firsthand Besides there are only so many ways of All You Who Sleep Tonight describing how to suash a bug Orbital bombardment Biological warfare A Fifth Column Not only is The 5th Wave unoriginal but it s excessive I got it humanity s beaten there s really no need for all of Cassie s theatrics Sure she can pretend to be such a big expert on alien invasions tell me how unprepared we are how many people the Others have killed but she s so keen on sounding like the big expert she thinks she is she ends up being just so repetitive and ridiculously genre unsavvy They can kill us Yeah I know I ve seen them blow up the White House Seriously mope around too much bitching about it like sheoes and it becomes a case of been there Kamba Ramayana done that got boring seriously stop telling me how terrible it is when I can imagine hundreds of worse scenarios Face huggers anyoneAnyway Earth being invaded by hostile advanced aliens isn t new by any stretch of the imagination But not only is The 5th Wave completelyerivative of the many many alien invasion plots of years past it just has a terrible protagonist in Cassie Sullivan who forcefully shoves the same old regurgitated crap own my throat in the most inane way possible UghRant Number 2 The Romance is Beyond TerribleThat s my big problem That s it Before the Arrival guys like Evan Walker never looked twice at me much less shot wild game for me and
Washed My Hair Theymy hair They grabbed me by the back of the neck like the airbrushed model on his mother s paperback abs a clenching pecs a popping My eyes have never been looked eeply into or my chin raised to bring my lips within an inch of theirsThat if you couldn t tell is an actual uote from the book In fact I Uncle Sam don t think I ve ever read anything as romantically challenged as The 5th Wave and this is including Twilight hereid I just compare Twilight favorably to another book Basically I really really REALLY Do the Needful didn t like Cassie Sullivan as a character again and for completelyifferent reasons than from rant number one For one I be seriously concerned for any girl who responds to an impending alien invasion like this It s the end of the world OMG Ben Parish is hot WTF And as if that wasn t enough Ben Parish isn t even the love interest The real love interest is a poor guy named Evan Walker who may or may not be one of them Who I m not kidding tries to kill Cassie before growing a conscience and falling in love with her And Cassie of course is the girl.
