I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore

For the month of March, the Teen Reader's Book Club over at Goodreads is reading two books: I Am Number Four and Delirium. Being the overachiever that I am, I finished IANF yesterday. It's a great book, I must say.

The book is mostly about planets being raided for resources. Of course, the big part is being chased by Mogadorian aliens, but it's really about that. Basically, 'John Smith's' planet was destroyed and he had to come to earth. There's this Loric charm on him and these nine other kids.

The charm's really cool. They can't be killed out of order. Why? Because that'd make the story more interesting, of course. There's some other nifty things about the charm, but I won't go too deep.

Another thing about this book is that it's a love story. It's about his love for Sarah, and, if you ask me, his love for Henri, his guardian.

The Mogadorians are some pretty freaky dudes. They are pretty vicious. They want to kill the Loric people on Earth. They're trying.

The book begins with Number Three's death, and the scar that means somebody died carves into John's leg. He has to move, so Henri and him go to a place called Paradise, where his life sort of changes.

The movie's really good as well, but there are some parts that are very different.

Check back later, sorry for the sort of scattered review. I'm really tired but I wanted to review it tonight.


  1. Thanks for giving me the info on the movie/book! I must say, all other summaries aren't clear and rather vague. Now reading this, I think it sounds like something I'd love. :) Again, thanks for posting this!

    Also, I'm not sure if it's just my computer or if you're already aware of this, but what you're currently reading in the top right of your column isn't having any picture pop up. Just the name of what you're reading and then a bunch of black.

  2. There actually isn't supposed to be a picture, but I'll try to get rid of the black space. Thanks for the advice, though.

  3. cool :) I already saw the movie.


Thank you for commenting. Also thank you for thinking of me, but please do not give any awards that require passing on to other blogs. I simply do not have the time.
