Popular dystopian novel thrills readers

By: Mercede Kraabel

The 5th Wave was written by Rick Yancey. The Others are smart. They know what they’re doing. They wipe out most of the Earth’s population in about 5 months. The Others are the aliens that have come to take Earth.

Cassie Sullivan is one of the few left after the 4th wave. Cassie made a promise to her little brother and she is dead set on going to get him. She knows where he is.

She has two rules: 1) trust no one and 2) stay alone. She believes that is the only way she can stay alive to find her brother. But then, in a twist of fate she meets Evan Walker and she breaks her two rules. Though she starts to think that he one of the Others, they are forced to trust eachother and fight for survival.

I really have no words for this book. It was really amazing. It got me hooked from the beginning. It was an action packed, mind racing, survival book all in one. The points of view change throughout the book. With the different viewpoints, it makes the plot seem more real. But I mean how more real can aliens get?

I personally, can’t wait to see the movie. While I was reading the book, I could tell what parts they would put in the movie and the parts that won’t be in the movie. I can tell this is gonna be a great movie.

Catch the 5th Wave in theaters today.
