DNF Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

1
1979

the infinite seaHow do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.

 

My Review:

This is a tough review for me to write, because I remember that I LOVED The 5th Wave.  I had a really hard time getting into this book, though. In fact, I DNF’d it….if you didn’t already see that in the title above. It’s just that it’s been so long since I read The 5th Wave, and The Infinite Sea did not go into any background details AT. ALL. I also had a really hard time identifying who the characters were and keeping up with whose POV I was reading in each chapter.

I can’t remember how far I made it in this book. I think I made it around 100 or so pages before I finally just gave up. The writing style was extremely difficult to get into and I found it to be wayyyy too poetic for my personal taste. And seriously…….did I mention that I had no idea what was going on or who was talking?! Give some damn background info! The first book came out a year ago and I don’t like to reread books!

 

Ugh.

 

This one just wasn’t for me.
