The Power of Six
I've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. To the world, he's a mystery. But to me . . . he's one of us.
Nine of us came here, but sometimes I wonder if time has changed us—if we all still believe in our mission. How can I know? There are six of us left. We're hiding, blending in, a...more
More lists with this book...
There are probably spoilers:
Jess: Hello there, James Frey, aka Pittacus Lore. Welcome to the show.
James Frey: Thanks for having me. How much money did we agree I'd be getting for this interview?
Jess: A lot.
James Frey: Good, because I adore money.
Jess: I can tell. In the past nine months you've released two New York Times Best Selling novels, one e-book/novella, and had a large budget film adaption. You must be stoked. You and Mr. Hughes are rolling in money
James Frey:Yes, we are.
Jess: Lets ...more
The Power of Six is much more action-packed than the first. There are some issues of betrayal and love and sacrifices.
Six, you badass alien, I think I like you too.
It's definitely worth the wait and when's the third book coming out? I. NEED. MORE.
“If you ever know a man who tries to drown his sorrows, kindly inform him his sorrows know how to swim.”
The Power of Six was not what I'd expected, the book was slow in the beginning, its story revolves around Number Seven. I think most of her parts were boring. I'm curious, in spite of the title about Number Six, why this book is all about Number Seven. Her character is not strong as the others, and not for my taste, yet I hope that Pittacus put her here for some reason. I just hope.
There are only six of us left. Six of us against any number of them. And no way of knowing how we might possibly find one another. We’re the only hope. Strength in numbers. The power of six...
Wow! Now this is what I call adrenaline pumping, high impact action. I felt I was on a turbo jet ride that wouldn’t stop! O.O There wasn’t one moment in this book where I let my guard down or allowed myself to settle into a false sense of security or saftey ...more
I did not like the first book of this series, and I had decided not to waste my time on the sequel. I should have gone with my gut reaction and stayed far, far away from this book. Why did I read it? The better question is, why did I bother seeing the movie after disliking the book so greatly? The answer to that question is simpler, the tickets were free. How do ...more
P.s. You can't really comment on a book that isn't out yet and therefore you can't have read. Goo drool over Alex whats-his-name.
This book is pure action from the very first second, with the group on the run from the authorities. And we're also introduced to a second view point, another Loric in Spain and i ...more
The first time I picked up The Lorien Legacies feels like ages ago. Maybe three or even four years. I had to freshen up my memories and decided to rewatch the movie, which was a great idea thanks to Alex Pettyfer's abs.
The Power of Six is fast-paced and action packed. The writing is easy and entertaining, and I finished the book in only a day.
What makes this series so exciting is the large cast and their many special powers. ...more
It took me FOUR days to read this book. Meeeee! Speedy Gonzalez of readers took FOUR days to read this.
I just knew in my heart that this book would end me.
It kinda did.
Like a lot.
4.5 stars for sure!
*SPOILERS BELOW SPOILERS BELOW SPOILERS *
what the fuck is happening to Sam?!
Nine is seems crazy but i'm intrigued!
Marina kinda annoyed me at first but damn the girl can breathe underwater and heal just about anything what evennnnnn!! And the way she protects ELLA I cry I cry.
I'm thoroughly angry. The majority of the book was a fantastic read...until I got to the parts where Four/John Smith agonized like a fickle boy stuck between loving one girl and liking another. Oh, there's a difference. It makes me mad that THIS overshadowed how great this book could've been. I'm sorry that I'm so hung up on the forced romances in this book but I detest love triangles; hate it, hate it, hate it - with a passion. I have debated on abadoning this boo ...more
Where I found the first book in this series fairly interesting, this one pretty much (so far as I'm concerned) crashed and burned. Heavy overly dramatic dialogue, massive amounts of teen angst, a switch in the story telling to include some heavy handed indoctri ...more
There are plenty of moments that had me on the edge of my seat and we finally find out what was in the second spaceship that left Lorien in John's visions. Just as interesting and addictive a ...more
After battling against the Mogadorians at their school, Four(John), his best friend Sam and Six have fled the town with a pri ...more
The Power of Six starts off right from the aftermath of the Paradise disaster. John, Sam and Six are on the run from the police and FBI with the Mogadorians hot on the trail. They want to try to find the other Numbers, combining each of their powers to fight against the Mog's and bring peace to there planet Lorien, thus saving planet earth from certain doom.
I really enjoyed this book, but it felt like a filler more then anything. Nothing actually gets resolved but we do learn quite a ...more
Over in Spain, we also pick up the story of Number Seven, also known as Marina. She's currently living in a convent/orphanage, waiting for her legacies to develop and the right time to find the others.
The story switches between J ...more
The one thing that kind of annoyed me is, surprise surprise, Sarah. All the times John brought up how much he missed her and how she was definitely his One True Love because Lorics fall in Love once for life...I just...U G H. And I thought the love triangle thing ...more
Book 2 of the Lorien Legacies
By Pittacus Lore
A Review by Eric Allen
Okay, despite the fact that one of the two (uncredited) authors of these books is a worthless waste of human life who can't find a bowl of chicken noodle soup to drown himself in quickly enough for my taste, I actually enjoyed, to some extent, the first book. Despite its complete lack of anything resembling a character, it was a fun read to take up an afternoon with. It was by no means a great book, but it wasn't ...more
I read the first book and loved it! I am really excited for the second book. I want to do some speculating:
1) The power of six, has to be the story of them finding the six remaining Loriens. But that doesn't mean that they will ...more
First i liked the idea of it being from two different perspectives of both John and Marina, in my review prior to the release of this book coming out i said that this book would be centered completely around seven to give us a break from john but as i read on i realized it made seance to include john as he still has his own story to fulfill.
Six still remains my ...more
This book had wayy more action than the first, which is perfect to me. However John made stupid decisions as usual and of ...more
This is me, standing up on my chair applauding an empty room like an idiot. 10 minutes ago, I read the last page of THE POWER OF SIX. Nine minutes ago, I called my mother in hysterics telling her she must--MUST--read the I AM NUMBER FOUR series. Here's how the convo went:
Mom: Sounds like you loved them. I'll read them.
Me: When. Now?
Mom: I'll buy them when they're all out.
Me: No. You will buy the first two today and then loathe the world that the third isn't out yet.
Mom: F ...more
Whoooo! Before I start this review, can I just say that Lore absolutely smashed ‘I am Number Four’ out of the park with this! The Power of Six is an absolutely fantastic sequel that has left me dying to know to more.
The Power of Six is told from alternate point of views. We’re introdu ...more
