Happy Valentine’s day all! And let us not forget Groundhog’s day! It is looking here like the Groundhog will not see his shadow this year. A miserable wintry mix on Wed.
Finished I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. I picked it up at Borders when I was spending my Christmas loot.
John Smith is 1 of 9 aliens that have come to earth to escape an alien war on his home planet. He and his guardian must flee the Mogadorians who are bent on destroying them (and taking over earth too!)
I don’t know how it is marketed but in my opinion it is a YA book. In fact, as a teen I would have loved this book. Definitely a young man’s fantasy: Teen boy; special powers; fights the bad guys; falls in love with the hot girl; saves the girl. A little pathos at the end.
As an adult it was OK, but nothing special to write home about - at times it was a page flipper. I am not sure I would have bought it if I had known it was the first of a series. I may buy the next, but haven’t decided.
