The 5th wave is a sci-fi book that has young characters that some readers may relate to. I fell in love with the book and decided to read it about 4 times. I give it a high rating because it has tense moments. I love the feeling of when a human shows up, because you'd never know if it is a human or alien in disguise. Other good elements the book had was a series of plot twists. I recommend this book to people that love a never ending conflict between man and society. The 5th wave is a apocalyptic world that drains the reader into a world of mixed emotions. At one moment the reader feels sorry for the character but then see their true evil form.
