So I think I will probably remember the last book in The 5th Wave trilogy better than I remembered the 2nd book, Infinite Sea. I ended up having to visit a website to get a summary of the entire story so I could make the connections between some of the things I read in this one compared to what I remember from Infinite Sea. In fact, after reading the summary, I still couldn't remember some of the larger events from the ending. Was it really that unmemorable? This one was definitely close in the memory catalog.

It took me over two weeks to read this short(ish) book and it really shouldn't have. I still enjoyed the characters, but felt like this book (like the previous one) tried to "do it all". This book is plot driven - and it should be! I think that was reason I liked The 5th Wave so much. It was for the most part, action packed with chapters ending with a character getting into a sticky situation and then switching to a new character. It kept you wanting to read and find out what was going to happen to that character, which required you to get through your current chapter. Looking through my review for Infinite Sea, I can tell that I felt the same way for that one (even if I don't remember it) as I do for this one. THERE WAS TOO MUCH! The author, while trying to pack with action (we were on a time limit of 4 days) also tried to pack in character development which ended up leaving me wanting to skip over full paragraphs (and sometimes pages) of the thoughts running through characters' heads. I really don't care what you thought right before you pulled the trigger to kill yet another person who really doesn't mean much to you in the grand scheme of things. I was starting to find Cassie's internal dialogue irritating and overly dramatic - and yes I realize she is a teenage girl.

That aside, I did enjoy seeing a few characters finally step up and/or follow through and overcome whatever their obstacles (all mental obviously) might be.

The ending was also a matter of contention for me. I understand what everything happened in the way that it did, but partially wish Evan would have died as well. It would have made Cassie's death feel slightly more poetic and rich. To me, this felt like another Tris death in Allegiant. And I was left pissed off at the end of that book. At least I don't feel pissed off for this one. But seriously... what is Evan's purpose now? He's more of less become a shell because Cassie died anyway. Grrr..

And plot hole... how the hell did Ringer/Marika's baby make it when she was beaten bloody and broken by Evan in his "shark" mode rampage?! I don't care if you have the rib cage of the strongest whale, you can't attribute the 12th system for keeping her baby alive. You aren't left with a broken back, and other broken bones (literally everywhere in your body) and not end up with some kind of puncture somewhere internal around your pelvis. Your brain may have shut down pain sensors, but that doesn't mean that you haven't been hurt.... Baby should not have survived... Unless she and Zombie/Ben made a new baby. And if so, it's about time!

Overall, I was disappointed and am left feeling like I shouldn't have chosen to go on with this series after book one. ( )

2 stars story, 3 stars for the ending ..... 2.5 stars

Brutal. I almost gave up! After waiting over a year and I can say I am extremely disappointed with the third and last book.

This wasn't a page turner at all. Even towards the end I wanted to skim through it because I was so bored. It doesn't seem like it was written by the same author. What happened?

It doesn't help that Cassie somehow acted like a nasty bitch. It does not help that the whole journey through the book I dislike the protagonist. Thank god for the satisfying ending is all I can say. ( )

I finished this over the weekend.The series as a whole was alright,but this last book couldn't keep my interest at times.Without spoilers you basically got the same group of characters.My favorite being Ringer (for badassery) not sure if that's a word but very descriptive.My least favorite Cassie,she's so damn whiny.

Some people will really enjoy this book,it just didn't do it for me. ( )

Some series, the writing becomes better and the plot richer, and the reader can watch the author's skill develop as she reads through the books in the series. That outcome is rare and wonderful, and right now I can only think of one series that actually follows that pattern, and it's written by J. K. Rowling.

The 5th Wave, like most series, would have been great as a single, standalone novel, but someone (publisher? agent? a figure with a pitchfork perched on the author's shoulder?) encouraged the author to keep on going. Sure, if you stopped with one, the story wouldn't be tied up in bow, and the readers would be left wanting more, but sometimes wanting more is actually better than getting more, especially when the "more" is disappointing.

The disappointments in this one were macro and micro.

Macro- Yancey seems to have found a formula he liked---get the characters into an impossible situation, make the situation even more impossible, have someone show up in the nick of time and save the day in a rain of bullets and shrapnel---and he played that on repeat. By the end of The Last Star, I stopped trying to keep track of all of the one-hit wonders who show up, and I'm not sure I could even tell you the difference between Grace and Constance at this point. For a world where almost everyone's been killed, people sure stumble upon one another a lot. Without giving away any spoilers, the "truth" Yancey reveals about the Others makes no sense, and it seems like Yancey was figuring it out as he put words on the page. And that's fine, if that's your process, but his editor should really have given him some guidance before the book was published.

Micro- Here's a scene: Ben gives Sam a locket. Sam says, "What's this?" Sound familiar? Sure it does, because the exact same thing happens in the first book. And it's pointless here anyway because in this book, it's a total red herring. It never shows up again. Gah! In addition, Yancey has a tendency to repeat himself, sometimes using the same words to describe two different scenes or two different situations or the same situation from the eyes of two different characters thinking the same words. When it's coming from the child soldiers, I get it. It's boring, but I get it. But from the other characters it just seems like Yancey stopped trying.

I know it has to be a lot of effort for an author to sustain his interest in the world and characters he's created long enough to write a series, no matter how great a premise underlies it. It requires a lot of attention and emotion from both the author and the editor to make sure the final product is as good as it could be. I don't think The Last Star is as good as it could be, and that irritates me.

Not every series is going to be Harry Potter, but not every series should be a series, either. ( )

2-2.5 Stars
I put off reading The Last Star because I LOVED the first two books and was in no way ready for the series to end. Now that I've read it, I almost wish I hadn't.
It's not necessarily a bad book, it just dragged a bit too much for me. I didn't feel like I was reading about the same characters either. I mean, I couldn't stand Cassie in this book. And Ringer and Ben? Don't get me started.

One thing I did like though? The ending. While it would have been nice if everything wrapped up with a nice little bow, I knew that probably wouldn't happen. Cassie's fate seemed inevitable.

Right now, I can't rate this more than 2 stars because of how utterly bored I was through a majority of it. The last 50 or so pages is about the only time it managed to capture my full attention.
Maybe someday I'll reread the series back to back and I'll feel differently but until then, this rating will have to do. ( )
