Hi everyone!
I give this book a good 9 out of 10 (going for ten so 5/5 stars)!
For the plot I would give it a 10 out of 10 rating it's a totally worth read!!! But it didn't make me say "wow"...
This books has so many twists (I LOVE them). I admit I read it now for the movie and hope it'll be as good as the book (even if I can't get over the actors)! I don't really liked the points of view because the book doesn't say it immediately (so you have to understand).
I didn't expect romance (I hoped so) but I admit I enjoyed that little sprinkle of romance in the characters.
I really really liked the realistic descriptions, the diferences between the point of views of the characters, their development and how the authors gives you some little hints in the pages that all create a perfect story line!
There are essentially 4 main characters: Cassie, a badass girl that I easily pictured as myself; Ben Parish, at the beginning I literally wanted to punch him on the face, but then I understood that he had another side that I really liked; Sams, he's so cute and little; last but not least Evan, he's so sweeeeet he's at Peeta's level for me!!!

Now I need a moment for how it ended... It can't finish like that!?!? But I can't wait to read the sequel!

“Some things you can never leave behind. They don't belong to the past. They belong to you.”
Rick Yancey, The 5th Wave

Rick Yancey
“But if I'm it, the last of my kind, the last page of human history, like hell I'm going to let the story end this way. I may be the last one, but I am the one still standing. I am the one turning to face the faceless hunter in the woods on an abandoned highway. I am the one not running but facing. Because if I am the last one, then I am humanity. And if this is humanity's last war, then I am the battlefield.”
Rick Yancey, The 5th Wave

“How do you rid the Earth of humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.”
