I Am Number Four!
I got it for my birthday and since I've just finished City of Bones I thought, "Hmm, let's pick up this book and start reading it before February 18th"
Why before February 18th? Wait, you don't know? WHAT ROCK DO YOU LIVE UNDER?! *cough* Just kidding. Anyway, February 18th is the day that I Am Number Four is coming out to theatres.
I wanna read the book before I watch the movie. Sure, the book is always better than the movie. I know. I learned my lesson with Harry Potter and Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. I wanna read the book though. I mean, come on the trailers look pretty good.
Besides I wanna know what I'm going to go watch BEFORE I actually go and watch it. For some reason it gives me a sense of tranquility to think that I'm not going to watch the movie FREAK OUT then read the book and picture the actors as the characters. (I tried reading Twilight after I watched the first movie, Robert Pattinson is now always in my head when I think of Edward. . .yeah, that's bad).
Anyway, here is a summary of the book from the jacket. Enjoy:
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've ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books--but we're real.
Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and to 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 withough you knowing.
But they know.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
I am Number Four.
I am next.
Isn't that a bone chilling jacket summary? It makes you wanna pick up the book and read it, huh? Well DO IT.
Thank you. Have a nice night!
