Overview: The 5th Wave

The 5th Wave is a book belonging to the sci-fi and fantasy genre that takes the reader through a fast paced, action packed story chronicling a terrifying alien invasion. The story is set in a period where alien invasion has caused almost an extinction of humanity with Cassie, the central character being possibly among the few human beings left on the Earth.

The book documents the systematic destruction of humanity in waves with the first wave plunging the world into chaos through electromagnetic pulse destroying technology. Through the second wave the coastlines are destroyed through a tsunami and the third wave uses an avian virus to kill 99 percent of the surviving population. In the fourth wave the aliens possess human beings who then kill the surviving humanity.

In the book Cassie is depicted as aimlessly wandering through the wasteland killing any human beings she comes across since they may be possessed by aliens after the occurrences of the 4th Wave. Eventually Cassie is shot by a sniper and comes across Evan who nurses her back to health. Through the story Cassie and the readers get to unravel the truth about Evan. The book seems quite bleak and depressing but the characters have been developed beautifully. The book has been published by Penguin UK in May 2013.

The book has several interesting sub plots and a love triangle that has been wonderfully developed. The world painted in the book is quite terrifying and lonesome. The book has been written by Rick Yancey who is the author of several best selling novels. He has received the Michael L Printz award for his novel and the other books written by the author include Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp and Seal of Soloman: Alfred Kropp 2. You can shop online for the paperback book listed on Amazon India with the ISBN number 10 of 0141345837 and ISBN number 13 of 9780141345833.

  1.  Alien Invasion - Good read 8 December, 2013 On
    The story is about Alien invasion, Cassie and her promise to save her brother and with a little bit of romance here and there which was good.

    The book was bit over hyped. It was good but didn't blew my mind as I was expecting to be.
    The story dragged for a while but picked up the pace at the end and last 100 pages were action packed.

    Overall a good read and I'm looking forward for the next book in this series.
