Title: THE POWER OF SIX
Author: Pittacus Lore
Publication Date: 08/2011
My Rating: 4.5/5--Really good! Worth your time!
Plot in One Word: Aliens
Good if...you want something fast paced and filled with action
SO I recently read I AM NUMBER FOUR. I'd seen the movie. It was...okay, but I figured I'd give the book a try. I'm so glad I did since I highly enjoyed it. :)
On to book #2, THE POWER OF SIX, which was even better!
THE POWER OF SIX is a duel narrative. It splits time between John Smith (Number Four) and new character Marina (Seven). Book 1 left off with John Smith leaving Paradise Ohio with his friend Sam and Six. Book 2 picks up his story-- following John on the run-- while adding the additional element of Marina's story.
It was impossible to decide which story line I enjoyed more...both were awesome! I greedily turned the pages, eager to see where both were heading. The mystery, suspense, and action kept me on my toes. It was very exciting the whole way through and the moment it ended I just had to get my hands on Book 3.
Bottom line: Read it!
Note: If you've seen the movie I AM NUMBER FOUR you could probably skip ahead to this book. There were subtle differences, but overall pretty similar. On the other hand, I couldn't get enough of these books and was thankful I started at the very beginning.
On to book #3--THE RISE OF NINE!
