Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others' ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.
Cassie and her friends haven't seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.

Not as good as the first :(
Would you recommend The Infinite Sea to your friends? Why or why not?
If you have read The 5th Wave, then you pretty much don't have a choice. I know you will read it, and you should, because there's a chance the third book will be super badass.
What about Phoebe Strole and Ben Yannette ’s performance did you like?
Great performance. No issues there.
Was The Infinite Sea worth the listening time?
Yes and no. Yes because it was an enjoyable read, and no because it was nowhere near as good as its predecessor. The issue I had with this book was that the majority of the story was told in Ringer's POV (a character I don't care much for). It makes sense why it was written like that; it's setting up and building up the story for the 3rd book, which I am assuming (and praying) will be much better than this one, but in the process you are left with hardly any character building, hardly any Cassie and Evan or Ben, and more Ringer, more Vosch and The Others, more theory pondering, chess games, and a whole lot of guesswork. The whole time I kept waiting, very expectantly, to get what I've waited over year for, and at times it felt like it was right there, on the next page. But alas, it never came. I should point out though, the big reveal at the end was a clever twist I did not see coming, so to that I tip my hat to you Mr. Yancey.
Any additional comments?
Bottom line: It was intriguing enough to be enjoyed but it will ultimate leave you unsatisfied. I am sure I am speaking for most readers out there when I say that, after reading The 5th Wave, we are opening this book with VERY high expectations. So you, my dear reader friend, will most likely be let down. Perhaps not as much as I was, but I guarantee you will not finish this book and feel the same way you did when you finished the first one.

Liked it a lot.
This 2nd installment in the series is different than the 1st in that it is more character than action driven . I did not agree with the many other reviewers who didn't care for this one. You learned a lot about he characters and their motives. Many readers realize that the 2nd book in a series often may often be thought as the weakest, but In this case I got a lot out of the story. For me, The Infinite Sea was well worth my time.
