Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

“Some things you can never leave behind. They don't belong to the past. They belong to you.” 


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.


The cover looks really beautiful. You can see the protagonist on it and it really suits the story. Also the metallic-look makes it look much better, and kind of alien-like.

My opinion:

This was my first Sci-Fi read ever and I only bought it (once again) because I heard a lot of good things about it on the internet. And once more, I am so happy that I got this book!
At the beginning the book is really confusing and I had a hard time getting used to the writing style. The author jumps around in time (Past, Present) but after the first 100 pages I got used to that rather quickly. What I loved the most about this book was that the author wrote the story in the different point of views. I loved the different voices and characters. However, Cassie annoyed me a little bit. A lot of things which she did just didn’t seem logical to me. The other characters were all great though, especially Evan. :)


A great Alien book with a lot of action, entertainment and a little bit of romance.


4|5 stars
