‘The Infinite Sea’ by Rick Yancey [ REVIEW ]

The infinite sea

One of my goals for 2016 is to get back to my roots and read more books. As the great Frederick Douglass said, ‘Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.’ Books are a passion – nay, an obsession of mine and always have been. I grew up in the library and my parents fostered my love of reading and learning. With books I have lived a thousand lives, found myself absorbed in different worlds, and learned immensely more than I could have otherwise. I have a goal of reading 100 books this year, along with me!

 

‘The Infinite Sea’ by Rick Yancey is the second book in ‘The 5th Wave’ trilogy- a present day Alien Invasion tale. While we learn more about the actual invasion it really just creates more questions. The story itself is pretty cryptic and essentially boils down to a theme that keeps popping up. The aliens are just screwing with the humans, making killing them as personal as possible while playing mind games. I’m not really sure where Yancey is going with the novel, although I’m pretty sure our heros will figure out the aliens and find a way to take back the earth. If not then this has been a really drawn out crazy extermination.

The first novel follows a few characters but mainly Cassie. In this novel Cassie is the main character in the beginning but the rest of the novel follows Ringer’s story whom we didn’t hear from in first person at all in the first novel. It is interesting how we get snippets of information here and there but the rest is basically just frustrating. Hopefully the third novel, ‘The Last Star’ due out this May will wrap up all the loose ends!

That’s book 8 of 100! Read all the reviews here.
