Man I'm so pissed that I'm done and the next full novel isn't out yet! I have to wait to find out what happens next. This series has definitely kept me interested! ( )

An interesting story ( )

I really like these stories. However, I must ask: What is UP with the different fonts? I understand that it is meant to be a visual reminder of the PoV, but I found it to be really jarring. Also, I kept reading the font for number Four in a robot voice in my head. I can't help it, but that's what I hear when I see that font. I thought that I would get used to it as I got farther into the book, but no such luck.

I also have a bit of a problem with authors who write themselves into the books. I find it to be too overbearing and heavy handed. I want to be immersed in a book and things like that snap me right out of it. I wouldn't have a problem with it as much if the author wrote himself in a humble or lowly part, but Pittacus Lore was a supreme being who brought hope to all of the people. Hmmmmmm...

The story is strong enough on its own without these gimmicks. ( )

Great follow up to I am number four. I'm looking forward to the rest of this series ( )

Let's be honest: it's not very good. The writing isn't awful, but it's not great. The plot is full of holes that are badly patched. Plot twists that come out of nowhere (not in a good way), and solutions that are too convenient. Villains that are stereotypical and one dimensional, conveniently turning to ash when they die so there's no guilt or conflicting emotions when a hero kills them. They're so "evil" that they're dehumanized and so aren't even interesting.

But there's a certain enjoyable aspect about it. It's different than most YA literature in that it's science fiction (sort of) and focuses on a boy rather than a girl. It has more action than romance.

I just really wish it were better. If it didn't take itself so seriously, it might be. But it just isn't that great. ( )
