“We’re here, and then we’re gone, and it’s not about the time we’re here, but what we do with the time.”
So this will be a killer movie if they do it right.
The story is wild.
I particularly don’t have a love for the writing style, but I do have a love for Yancey’s story in general. I think I have outgrown the 2010’s young adult book’s style of writing.
Okay, not zombies. Actually, it’s the second most popular apocalyptic theme: Aliens
They come in waves: no electricity or transportation. Earthquakes and tsunamis. Disease. Silence.
Then the 5th Wave comes…
Cassie, the heroine, is on a mission to save her brother, Sammy. (I guess the big thing for books these days is to save a sibling. Not that I mind. It just seems like the go-to.)
Ben has lost his whole family and is in a refugee camp.
Evan lost his entire family too, but finds himself whole when he meets Cassie.
The story line of this book kind of confused me some, and I found myself drifting… but I’m pretty extremely positive it was because I was annoyed with the young-adult writing style. The corniness and the… I don’t know.
Again I say, This is a marvelous story and I believe it could make a really good start to a trilogy. The stuff I didn’t like wasn’t about the book at all in itself, it is just the writing style I don’t mix with.
I think I’ve explained myself enough.
You can find me at the midnight premiere, giggling like a school girl waiting for the film.
