Flashback: The 5th Wave

“You can only call someone crazy if there’s someone else who’s normal. Like good and evil. If everything was good, then nothing would be good.”

Hello, dearies! 📙

This is not a book review.

Here we are again, another week, another throwback or flashback as it is, a Friday Flashback. Last week, I started this little section with a review (sort of) for The Bane Chronicles: Saving Raphael Santiago, which marked the first look into the past, and it was a TBT.

Now, this week I decided to go with a book that I loved in the past, and on the second round of reading it, The 5th Wave. I have a review already for this back, and it was done a long time ago, you can check it out here: The 5th Wave review.

This time around, I wanted to talk about some of the characters and the story. Let’s begin. 📚

The Last Star

⭐⭐⭐⭐

Trilogy: The 5th Wave

Author: Rick Yancey

Genre: YA, Science Fiction, Dystopia, Post Apocalyptic, Aliens

📖

I gave it 4 stars out of consideration, and I didn’t want to put 3.

I don’t enjoy writing bad reviews, or what some might count as bad or not perfect-I-loved-everything-about-it or even hey-you-should-read-this-is-a-must-read. I like recommending books that I enjoyed, but then the endings come, and they’re so, what the frack is this?

That’s kind of how I felt all the way through the last chapters of The Last Star. Up until the last chapter, I had hopes, the hope that it would end differently, but it didn’t.

Let’s get this party started. First, I have some commentary on some of the chapters, then it comes the final review, and if you haven’t read my previous reviews on these books, you can check them out before reading this one:

Though you might find them a little different from this one, and they were written a long time ago.

Alright, so the warning, Spoilers ahead! Like there are Spoilers if you haven’t read The Last Star. You have been properly warned.

The 5th Wave Thoughts

So about The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, haven’t finish it yet. 62% and now is getting exciting although I’m still waiting to get surprised I don’t know if it is that I was measuring all the possibilities while Cassie (main character) was talking/thinking delusional thoughts throughout the whole book or if I am just deductive or maybe Rick wrote it in that way so WE, the readers, would know but Cassie wouldn’t. I had one surprise many chapters ago but the rest I was: Yes, exactly. What else could it have been?

I am not saying the book is bad; it’s great actually, I was just pointing those parts out. The worst as usual (lately) is that I have to wait until September 16th 2014, supposedly, to read the 2nd part (*sigh*).
