At first, I wasn't aware it was varying viewpoints, so the switch of perspectives took me off guard for half a second. Mainly because it is first person and it didn't outright show that it was a different character.
However, going back, I realize that the writing for each character is totally different!
Throughout the whole book, it was edge-of-your-seat exciting and intense. Once you think you know what's going on/going to happen, Yancey throws you through ten loops and changes EVERYTHING you thought was true.The plots were incredible as well as devastating.
The romance aspect, what little there was, I didn't like all that much, I think it might've increased my interest if certain plot points regarding the romance had taken a different turn.
But all-in-all, I absolutely loved this book. I was in the mood for aliens after reading 172 Hours on the Moon and The 5th Wave did not disappoint!
From the previous point of "Or at least they think they do": There are an absurd amount of false truths and lies, you never truly know if what a character is saying is true, especially if they aren't currently the main focus. You'll never truly know what's going, and this isn't something the 2nd and 3rd book drop lightly.
The 2nd book reveals a whole lot more lies and a whole lot more truths, which could very well be more lies.
The 3rd book (I'm currently still reading and have not finished yet), only 1 character know the "Truth", and everyone is stuck with their all their previous beliefs, and you just have to sit back and watch them act as if they have everything planned. I makes your heart race.
Don't worry, I tried to keep this as spoiler free as possible, it's a good series. The 2nd book is a bit slow in the middle, but the ending chapter is amazing, heartbreaking, relieving, and rage inducing all at the same time, I couldn't have asked for a better ending chapter.
It was entertaining and engaged me like decent rainy day escapist "sci-fi" fodder, almost romance novel in some parts.
I skimmed a lot because the language didn't really compare to a Jack Vance or something where every line is a gem.
It could be any number of movies/books in the same vein with the same story.
All the characters have the same personality.
It ended abruptly like the author just gave up. Maybe there'll be a sequel. I'd probably read it.
