I AM NUMBER FOUR.
I AM NEXT.”
I inhaled this book. I literally read it in a matters of hours. My eyes just ran across the pages taking anything and everything in. This book had everything in it. Action, adventure, love, fighting, and even the constant on the run from something that keeps following you was one that keep me on my toes.
Number Four, is just tired. Tired of hiding, changing names, changing homes, just changing in general has him going crazy. But if he makes one mistake, he is dead. Forced from his home planet of Lorien, he is hiding on earth with his keeper, keeping one step ahead of the Mogadorian. They have followed him to earth, killing his off whats left of his people one by one. They have killed Number One, Number Two and Number Three. He is next.
This book is pure awesomeness. I really enjoyed reading every minute of it. This book is told from a boys POV and I just loved him. I loved his willingness to survive and fight. He goes through all the normal teenage drama, expect for gaining mysterious powers. He even has a crush, which I adored. But when a girl comes into the pictures, things start to go wrong. Why? He starts to make mistakes.
I just love seeing him become himself. He was so afraid and always running it was good to see him comfortable in his shoes. He slowly became himself and became comfortable with her. He no longer wanted to hide but to be open and safe with her. He knew what he was getting into and decided that was it. No more running. Then came Number 6. Number 6 is my kind of gal! She totally kicks butt! I loved her fighting and her knowledge of what was happening. She was the icing on the cake. Fresh and delicious.
If you have not picked this book up, you should. I can’t even begin to express how much I loved the book other than it was awesome. From the first page I knew that this would make one heck of a movie.
If you don’t know the movie comes out February 18, 2011, which I am totally going to.
I give it 5 BITES!
Here’s the trailer, check it out!
