The 5th wave
By Rick Yancey
book report by Jade Dogan
The genre of this book would be considered dystopian/post-apocalyptic. I would say this genre fits this book well. Mostly everyone Cassie knows is dead along with most of the human race. The book starts out in Cassie's point of view telling her side of the story, but the point of view changes from person to person throughout the course of the story. I would say the language of this book is convincing. All of the characters are not proper and grammatically correct. They talk like regular people would talk if in their situation.
After the deadly waves the aliens sent out the earth is in ruins. Most of the humans are dead except for the few survivors including Cassie and her brother. There is a shortage in food and other resources they need to survive.
Throughout the story the mothership is still in the sky. Every movement the humans make is being watched by the others inside the motheship
Who to trust
The humans don't know who to trust. The others are not only killing the humans, they are also training other humans to help kill off the rest of the humans. Nobody can be trusted.
