How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity. Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race. Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate. -Goodreads
I struggled with rating this book. At times the story just felt choppy and disjointed. The last part of the book felt like the author forgot he left some characters back at a bombed out motel and just focused on Ringer and what she was going through. That being said, what Ringer was going through was pretty mesmerizing. At that point I didn't really care about Evan or Cassie or any of the rest of them. Hopefully by the 3rd book all the storylines will come back together. The ending left me in a pretty big lurch.
