Synopsis (Goodreads)
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.

Wow… I picked up this book after seeing the movie of it and raced through it in its entirety in less than 24 hours.

I am not, nor have I ever been, a huge lover of sci-fi books. But, with I Am Number Four I have found that not to be the case. The plotline is brilliantly fleshed out and easy to follow.

I loved the relationship between John and Henri, I also absolutely loved Sarah, Sam and Bernie Kosar. I think all of the characters (yes, including the dog) are extremely well written and I cannot wait to see what else happens to them.
