SUGGESTION SUNDAY: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
Synopsis: After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one. Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave. On a lonely 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, until Cassie meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan may be her only hope for rescuing her brother and even saving herself. Now she must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up. Cassie Sullivan gets up.
The 5th Wave is another book I feel like I would recommend forever. It’s one of my favourite science fiction books, focused on an alien invasion that is in the stage of destroying human civilisation. It’s almost constantly addictive, dark, and funny (thanks to Cassie’s narration). The next book, The Infinite Sea, is out soon, so it’s the perfect time to pick up the first book and then move onto the next (and trust me, the cliffhanger at the end of The 5th Wave will have you wanting more).
A character can still be a great character without being a good person.
In fact, some of the best characters are terrible people.
Because a character’s worth should be based on how complex and interesting they are, not their morality if they were real.
