rd only the  unlucky survive After the th wave only one rule applies trust no oneNow it's the dawn of the The 5th MOBI #233 th wave and on a lonely. bastardized sci fi for the Twilight crowdWell this is awkward Everything about The 5th Wave an award winning male young adult author a high octane alien invasion plot the comparisons to Ender’s Game and The Passage made it seem like it’d exactly my kind of book But now that I’ve finished I’m just so pissed with the whole thing I have nothing nice to say and really just want to punch something and in fact I dislike The 5th Wave so much I’ve somehow written not one but three angry rants yeah be warned this is going to be brutally honestRant Number 1 The Alien Invasion is Beyond DisappointingThe 5th Wave is not Ender’s Game The 5th Wave is not The Passage The 5th Wave shouldn’t even ualify as science fiction unless it’s being mentioned in the same breath as Jennifer Armentrout’s Lux series even Stephenie Meyer’s The Host is too good for this comparison Why Because there’s just nothing here but a collection of alien invasion tropes leading to an actual plot that’s all over the place part cringe worthy young adult ‘romance’ which I never would have expected outside of the usual suspects but that’s the topic of the next rant part bizarre military training seuence hence the unfounded comparisons to Ender’s Game see rant number three all leading to a nonsensical alien conspiracy by a group of ‘Others’ who if they’d really been studying us and planning our demise for as long as they claim rather than the harebrained scheme they’ve concocted to ‘break’ humanity should’ve just taken their cues from this awesome gameIn fact I’ve seen my share of memorable alien invasion plots Independence Day Animorphs V Between Falling Skies War of the Worlds and Invasion America Steven Spielberg has even done it three times So at this point count me unsurprised by the basic premise of The 5th Wave but even so I still wasn’t prepared for how derivative this book actually is coughinfestation with obvious red herringcoughBut don’t get me wrong I’m not exactly looking for new and original I just wanted something that I don’t know isn’t a clichefest Any serious well done treatment would have sufficed and yet I’m wracking my head trying to think of anything else remotely this bad and I just can’t There just isn’t anything interesting about The 5th Wave that made me want to invest in the story it’s great that Rick Yancey seems to have latched on to Stephen Hawking’s idea that if aliens ever visited we’d all be like the Native Americans during the colonial era but the Waves themselves are just so generic compared to every other imagined alien attack that Cassie Sullivan’s descriptions of the ‘Other’’s invasion come across like the melodramatic whining of someone too clueless and naive to appreciate the power of an alien invasion than the gritty recollections of a hardened survivor who’s experienced the horrors of the attacks firsthand Besides there are only so many ways of describing how to suash a bug Orbital bombardment Biological warfare A Fifth Column Not only is The 5th Wave unoriginal but it’s excessive I got it humanity’s beaten there’s really no need for all of Cassie’s theatrics Sure she can pretend to be such a big expert on alien invasions tell me how unprepared we are how many people the ‘Others’ have killed but she’s so keen on sounding like the big expert she thinks she is she ends up being just so repetitive and ridiculously genre unsavvy They can kill us Yeah I know I've seen them blow up the White House Seriously mope around too much bitching about it like she does and it becomes a case of been there done that got boring seriously stop telling me how terrible it is when I can imagine hundreds of worse scenarios Face huggers anyoneAnyway Earth being invaded by hostile advanced aliens isn’t new by any stretch of the imagination But not only is The 5th Wave completely derivative of the many many alien invasion plots of years past it just has a terrible protagonist in Cassie Sullivan who forcefully shoves the same old regurgitated crap down my throat in the most inane way possible UghRant Number 2 The ‘Romance’ is Beyond TerribleThat’s my big problem That’s it Before the Arrival guys like Evan Walker never looked twice at me much less shot wild game for me and washed my hair They never grabbed me by the back of the neck like the airbrushed model on his mother’s paperback abs a clenching pecs a popping My eyes have never been looked deeply into or my chin raised to bring my lips within an inch of theirsThat if you couldn’t tell is an actual uote from the book In fact I don’t think I’ve ever read anything as romantically challenged as The 5th Wave and this is including Twilight here did I just compare Twilight favorably to another book Basically I really really REALLY didn’t like Cassie Sullivan as a character again and for completely different reasons than from rant number one For one I’d be seriously concerned for any girl who responds to an impending alien invasion like this It’s the end of the world OMG Ben Parish is hot WTF And as if that wasn’t enough Ben Parish isn’t even the love interest The real love interest is a poor guy named Evan Walker who may or may not be one of them Who I’m not kidding tries to kill Cassie before growing a conscience and falling in love with her And Cassie of course is the girl who’s never been in a relationship before so she immediately loses all sense of self preservation and melts into his warm brown eyes and dimple What is this The Host Did Stephenie Meyer write thisAnd if that wasn’t bad enough even if I weren’t inwardly cringing every time Cassie and Evan appear together Rick Yancey really should be banned from writing female points of view This again is an actual Cassie uoteTime for the angrily storming out of the room part of the argument while the guy folds his arms over his manly chest and poutsWTF Should I believe what I think Yancey’s saying about what girls think of guysIn fact I would be laughing at how bad Cassie’s point of view is if I weren’t still smarting over the insipid alien invasion plot that made me want to fling my copy of the book across the room not that I can don’t want to pay for repairs to the drywall Double ughRant Number 3 The Comparisons to the Sci fi Classics are Completely UnfoundedThe days when alien invasion plots could stand solely on the invasion ended right around the time of HG Well’s War of the Worlds Somebody unfortunately didn’t get the memo Since then alien invasions have been pushing the boundaries of speculative fiction by exploring the paranoia surrounding sleeper agents Invasion of the Body Snatchers adult authority and its limits Ender’s Game and discovering the truth in the face of a complex government cover up The X Files but although The 5th Wave borrows elements from all of these other alien invasion plots I can’t for the life of me point to one alien invasion theme that this book does well Evan being a human alien hybrid struggling to reconcile his alien soul with his humanity Shallow even in comparison to The Host The conspiracy surrounding the ‘Other’’s infiltration of the US military So transparent I wouldn’t even call it a conspiracy Ben’s military training to take out the infested Is that a joke They even killed an expendable character named Kenny Cassie’s struggle to survive the Waves eventually learning to become a tougher person Ok that one’s done well I’ll admit until she runs into Evan and becomes a uivering mess of a character Then yuck Look I’m not against borrowing plot elements from other sources But when those elements mean something when there’s a theme behind them I don’t want to see a shallow treatment that does neither the source nor the adaptation any favors And for The 5th Wave that’s unfortunately the case Triple ughBasically The 5th Wave is in every way an embarrassment to science fiction Rick Yancey tried to work too many different concepts into this book jumping all over the place that the end result is not one of them is done well I’m muy disappointed

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 Walke. If you could buy just one book this year this one should be at the top of your list I'm just going to say it this book could very well be the next The Hunger Games I've never seen a book likely to be a crowd pleaser nor one with potential to sweep away a legion of fans This book was so crazily addictive that I read it in literally half a day and several months afterwards I am still jazzed over its edge of your seat actionWhat makes this story awesome and what elevates it above many other action oriented novels is really the writing taut plotting a strong narrative voice snarky humor and a masterful feeling of grim tension that can only be relieved if you turn the pages fast enough The full text of this review appears in The Midnight Garden An advance copy was provided by the publisher
