Solid sci-fi. Actually, this isn't even one of my preferred genres, but I was still thoroughly engaged. I'm kinda really liking the whole plot that's set up here, and it's going in an interesting direction. Now, granted, there are some holes, but I felt as though I needed to go out of my way to even notice them with how engaged I was in the narrative. ( )

I really enjoyed this book, although I felt that some of the writing felt a little juvenile. I attribute that, partially, to it being from the point of view of a 15 year old boy, which I am not accustomed to. It had a wonderful plot that left me searching to find if there would be a second book, and there was plenty of back story which I love. There were a few grammatical errors that I saw, but that doesn't bother me too much so I was still able to enjoy the book despite that. ( )

I Am Number Four features an intense storyline that is hard to put down, that makes you like the characters and makes you wan to see what happens to them next. Although the fight sequences make it a little hard to read, by way of losing the voice of the author and reading more of history than action. ( )

Quotations
I pick up a birth certificate that he has already finished.  The name written is James Hughes.  The date of birth would make me one year older.  I'd be sixteen and able to drive.  Then I bend over and look at the one he is in the process of creating. The name listed is Jobie Frey, age eighteen, a legal adult.

Book description
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.
