After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one. Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up. I had high hopes for this one -- I was really enjoying the beginning, but somewhere between halfway and 75% through, it just.. I dunno, lost it for me. I kept picking it up and putting it down immediately or procrastinating on reading it at all, and so I finally called it quits. I just kept expecting something major to happen and it never did. Does this mean someone else wouldn’t enjoy it? No, of course not! But it wasn’t for me. I see it’s going to be a movie -- hopefully it’ll be better as a movie than as a book for me!
