Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books--but we are real.

Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. We have lived among you without you knowing.

But they know.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They killed them all.

I am Number Four.

I am next.

Pre-Reading Questions -

Anybody got any thoughts on this one before we start?

Has anyone read anything similar to this before?

Anybody read anything else by this author previously?



message 4: by Ray (new)

Ray Simmons | 2 comments I read this book and I saw the movie. It did well in the movie theaters, but not as well as Hunger Games or Harry Potter. I have often wondered why. It is a great concept. I think you will enjoy it.


message 5: by Abi (new) - rated it 4 stars

Abi (booksa144) I read the first four or five books of the series, and I still enjoy the first three books, even though I personally think that the series went downhill with Fall of Five. I may join this, but probably not? IDK.

Katie (forever_small_) | 14 comments This has been on my to-read list for a while so maybe I'll actually read it this month! I've seen the film and LOVED it but maybe that was Alex Pettyfer and not the plot - we'll see haha


Angela (delusionalknitter) | 8 comments This has been in my to read list for a while! I have a book/tv list ... reading the books first then the movies.

Tiera McMillian (hawtmess) | 3465 comments Chapters 1-10. I know I watched this movie but it’s been so many years but I remember reading that critics hated it and the lead male actor actually had problems finding serious work after that for a while. I seem to remember that the critics said the actor didn’t cover character depth with his acting however as of chapter 10. He may have just been going by the book. I’m picturing this lead as mostly stoic.


Tiera McMillian (hawtmess) | 3465 comments Chapters 10-20. What’s this hitting the fan here! Oh I know!
May have (view spoiler)

I watched the movie, then proceeded to read the rest of the series so this is the last book I need to read in the series. Hopefully it is a fun and quick read like the rest of the series.
