Book Review: I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
In the beginning they were a group of nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorian. Nine aliens who scattered on Earth. Nine aliens who look like ordinary teenagers living ordinary lives, but who have extraordinary, paranormal skills. Nine aliens who might be sitting next to you now.
The Nine had to separate and go into hiding. The Mogadorian caught Number One in Malaysia, Number Two in England, and Number Three in Kenya. All of them were killed. John Smith, of Paradise, Ohio, is Number Four. He knows that he is next.
I Am Number Four is the thrilling launch of a series about an exceptional group of teens as they struggle to outrun their past, discover their future—and live a normal life on Earth.
I AM NUMBER FOUR.
I AM NEXT.
My Review: I actually wasn't all that impressed by this book. I saw the movie before I read the book, so that influenced my thoughts on this book a lot. It wasn't a bad book. It had a lot of action and cool concepts. The characters were all great, they all had their own personalities and they all had a purpose. There was a lot of back story, and that was good. I think the main reason I didn't like the book was because I liked the characters so much more in the movie. I think that if I had read the book first, I would have liked it better.
So I am working my way through Maggie Stiefvater's new book Forever and I hope to have that finished soon! Thanks for reading!
I'm Amanda! I originally started this blog as a way to share my short stories, but then it grew to include YA book reviews, author interviews, and giveaways. I LOVE reading YA and Middle Grade, and I'm a sucker for fantasy books. Along with reading and writing, I play golf, crochet scarves, sing, and in June I'll be off to college! Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I hope you enjoy it!
