Review: I Am Number Four

9915228I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books—but we are real.

Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. we have lived among you without you knowing.

But they know.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They killed them all.

I am Number Four.

I am next.

Review: I read this originally when the movie first came out. At the time I rated it 3 stars, and started the second book, but never finished. Needless to say, I liked the series, but the writing style didn't hold my attention my first time around.

This year it was my goal to try to finish some of the series I started but never finished. While I didn't get to reread as many as I hoped, I'm finally catching up with my reading to a point that next year I plan to listen to a lot of audiobooks to finish the series faster.

After listening to this one on audio, I decided that I will listen to this series instead of reading them. I loved listening to this one, and am once again excited to be reading this series! I loved Neil Kaplan's accents and the emotion he put into his acting! I'm happy to see he is also reading the rest of the series on audio!
