The 5th Wave had caught my eye almost 2 years ago. It looked very interesting and I wanted to read it but I was reading so many other books that I didn't have the time to grab The 5th Wave. I finally had time to get and read it. It was a great read. Rick Yancy is a really good writer, the writing gods have really gifted him. He knows how to create characters that are so complex and three-dimensional that they stop existing as characters in your mind and turn into real people. I particularly liked the way Rick Yancy told the story from multiple POVs (points of view) while making sure they were connected to each other through this small thread. I would give The 5th Wave 4 stars.
Side Note: I think that The 5th Wave and its coming sequels would make an amazing action flick series!
