Siamo arrivati in nove. In apparenza, siamo uguali a voi: vestiamo come voi, parliamo come voi, viviamo come voi. Ma non siamo affatto come voi. Siamo in grado di fare cose che voi non potete neanche sognare. Abbiamo poteri che voi non riuscite neanche a immaginare. Siamo più forti, più veloci e più abili di qualsiasi essere vivente del vostro pianeta. Avete presente i supereroi dei fumetti e quelli che ammirate al cinema? Una cosa del genere, però con una grossa differenza: noi siamo reali. Ci siamo rifugiati sulla Terra e ci siamo divisi per prepararci: dovevamo allenarci, scoprire tutti i nostri poteri e imparare a usarli. Poi ci saremmo riuniti, tutti e nove, e saremmo stati pronti. A combatterli. Ma loro hanno scoperto che siamo qui e adesso ci stanno dando la caccia. Vogliono eliminarci, l’uno dopo l’altro. Così siamo costretti a scappare, a spostarci in continuazione, ad avere paura della nostra stessa ombra. Attualmente mi faccio chiamare John Smith, e mi nascondo a Paradise, in Ohio. Credevo di essere al sicuro, ma ho commesso un errore gravissimo: mi sono innamorato di una mia compagna di scuola. E non potevo scegliere un momento peggiore. Perché loro hanno preso il Numero Uno in Malesia. Il Numero Due in Inghilterra. Il Numero Tre in Kenya. E li hanno uccisi. Io sono il Numero Quattro. Io sono il prossimo...

This book is so strange and awful, it's hard to explain exactly why I dislike it. Thank God this book didn't live up to its hype like Twilight did. At least I hope it didn't because I don't really hear much about this one. I couldn't get past chapter nine. It was such a bloody bore. I decided to giv Leggi tutto
The language and phrasing is really simplistic, which wasn't bad, but the story itself makes no sense whatsoever. It blends genres and not delicately. I feel like the concept of the novel was born before the characters and logic wasn't worked out around it. I Am Number Four is about John Smith, a tee Leggi tutto
Movie Update I already watched the movie and it was better than the book. The romance was still gushy and mushy but at least the dialogues were a lot better in the movie. Also the movie was more fast paced and was action-packed at the end of the show. I think the dog was really cute and Number Six wa Leggi tutto
“It's the little mistakes that lead to big mistakes.” I Am Number Four was unexpectedly fun. John Smith or Number four is my favorite character. I really loved his wits and the pace of this book, it's insanely fast that I didn't dare to breath when something happened. Pittacus slowly built up te Leggi tutto
I AM NUMBER FOUR is actually number four million if you consider the predecessors it is based upon. Meaning? We've been here before. About a bazillion times. Let's take stock: aliens on Earth disguised as Earthlings. In fact, your neighbor may be a Lorien (the "good guy" planet of concern here) and t Leggi tutto
Rating Clarification: 4.5 Stars There is always hope… Don’t give up hope just yet. It’s the last thing to go. When you have lost hope, you have lost everything. So when you think all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, there is always hope. Wow! Just wow!! Have I ever loved an alien invasion!?! This Leggi tutto
The Mogadorian caught Number One in Malaysia,Number Two in England,And Number Three in Kenya. I am Number Four.I am next. Catchy, isn’t it? Unfortunately, the story itself isn’t quite as catchy. I was rather underwhelmed, to be honest. The plot was ok but somehow it only managed to hold my attention fo Leggi tutto
I removed my review (and all the comments). I was tired sick of people writing me lengthy comments about how I read too much realistic fiction (really?), how I can't appreciate something fun and not overly brainy (do tell!) and, in general, all the ways I'm so obtuse for failing to appreciate this cr Leggi tutto
Full review still in progress, but here's approximately the first half... pre-reading comments at the end. EDIT: Okay, I'm never going to finish this thing. Frankly, I don't care. But I added a list of things I was planning to put into it at the end. EDIT 2: Everyone who is even THINKING about reading Leggi tutto
You must turn off your brain and ask no questions when reading this book. It’s a requirement to enjoy it. I failed miserably. It may be readable but I Am Number Four is predictable and clichéd with inaccurate and vague descriptions and explanations. For the most part I Am Number Four is an easy read Leggi tutto
