I Read This Epic Trilogy in 2 Days – The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey @RickYancey
The Last Star (The 5th Wave) - Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey is a #1 New York Times Bestseller, and now a major motion picture starring Chloë Grace Moretz.I have not seen it, but after reading the series I really, really, really want to.

 

OMG. Rick Yancy grabbed me by the throat right out of the gate and never let me go. I am blown away and totally creeped out.

Alien = extinction.

‘The only way to stay alive is to stay alone.”

And Cassie is. Five months from normal to alone.

Ninety seven million people wiped off the face of the earth. She keeps a journal just in case…well, in case there is anyone left to read it, except for the aliens. She has a special note just for them…”BITE ME!” I’m with her!

Truly an unputdownable book. I laughed and I cried. I screamed and I whispered. I despaired and I hoped. But, above all, I kept reading til the very end…of The 5th Wave.

Even the acknowledgments written by Rick Yancey are very entertaining.

I read all three books, 1095 pages, in two days. That’s how good this epic series is!

“Everything I thought was happening is not the thing that’s happening.”
The Last Star (The 5th Wave) - Rick Yancey

Book Title:  The Last Star

Author:  Rick Yancey

Narration:  Phoebe Strole & Bill Yannette

Series:  The 5th Wave #3

Genre:  Sci-Fi, Apocalyptic, Alien

☆My Pick for Book Theme Song:  Closer to the Edge by 30 Seconds to Mars  -- I think this song could give some people closure to this series with how it all went down.

 

 

Ratings Breakdown

 

Plot:  3.5/5

Ending:  3.5/5  Cliffhanger:  No

 

Will I read more from this Author?  I don't know???

 

 

3.7/5 STARS

 

 

My Thoughts

 

The opening line at the top is taken from a chat with Rick Yancey pertaining to the twist at the end of The Infinite Sea.  For me personally, I was just confused at the end of that book.   Sometimes, Yancey just went on and on about something, which in turn, just made me lose sight of what he's actually trying to say.  

 

Overall this series is not going to go down as one of my favorites…I did like it…just not that much.  Like it was almost too complex for me.  While I mostly believe the ending went just as it should, it could have been a little less bleak and hopeless.

 

I'm satisfied with my choice to listen to this 3rd book, as I also did with the 2nd book.  I believe it makes the constant switch from one character to another a little more seamless than actually reading it.

The Last Letdown...
The Last Star (The Fifth Wave #3) - Rick Yancey

Uhh I've been sitting on this review, thinking that if I ponder over this book a little longer I'll have a better grip on my feelings but that hasn't happened. I still have mixed feelings about this book and the whole series actually. It had so much potential but I feel like Yancey is his own worst enemy. Sometimes he can write so beautifully, then other times he gets on these tangents and the storyline and dialogue gets so convoluted you don't know what the hell he is going on about. I kept thinking well maybe I'll like it more if I can see it as a movie where I can actually see the story come to life but seeing as The 5th Wave movie didn't do a whole lot for me and The Infinite Sea isn't even greenlit yet I don't have much faith in that happening.

 

Don't get me wrong, I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either.  I just felt more of an indifference really. Honestly my last thought when I finished reading this was-

   

     I'm glad I don't have to hear about that damn bear anymore!!

 

So if that tells you anything.... Don't have too high expectations and you won't be disappointed...
