Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of The 5th Wave: The Last Star by Rick Yancey, read by Phoebe Strole and Ben Yannette. Now a major film by Sony Pictures, starring Chloe Grace Moretz.
The 5th Wave is the first book in the best-selling series from award-winning Rick Yancey. Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent and Maze Runner.
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one. Now is the dawn of the 5th wave. On a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs. Runs from the beings that only look human, who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan may be her only hope.
Now Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death.

A good listen!

I really enjoyed listening to this story.. it was so good. Full of action and some funny moments and dialogue. What made it really enjoyable was the narrators telling the story. They did it well. The action scenes were described well , I could imagine it better than if I read the book by myself. So really well done .
I also liked that this book had Ringers p.o.v. Bens p.o.v. Evan walker's p.o.v. Sams. p.o.v. and of course Cassies. whos story was my favourite part.
The ending was not what I expected and it was sad but I understand why it happened the way it did.
I'm kind of sad that it's over. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in their point of view for a few chapters.
Even though I didn't read the infinite sea at all , I could still figure out what happened. it was easy to catch up.
Overall it was well written, well read and enjoyable. Can't wait for the movies. . !
