I Am Number Four
Author: Pittacus Lore
Series: Lorien Legacies
Audience: Young Adult
Format: Book - library
From Goodreads: 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.
What I thought: I saw the movie of this before I read the book. The movie was ok, the book, as usual, was better. I actually don't have a lot to say about this. It wasn't brilliant, it wasn't awful - it was a nice light read. I have the second book, The Power of Six to read and I will. It will be interesting to see how it develops.
Recommended for: not sure. Those who enjoy the current trends in YA fiction.
