I am number four.

number-4I’m not number four, I wouldn’t last 5 minutes with a Mogadorian chasing me. But if there is one blockbusting, big budget, thrill-a-minute, movie-already-in-the-making action book you read this year - make it I am number four.

The premise is easy:

In the beginning we were a group of nine.
There are six of us left. The first three were
killed in the order of their numbers.
They won’t stop until they’ve killed us all.
I Am Number Four.
I know that I am next.

I am Number Four sees Pittacus Lore (James Frey and Jobie Hughes)  join the ranks of Eoin Colfer, Michael Scott, Lemony Snicket, Joe Delaney, Derek Landy and Darren Shan. It’s an epic! Aliens hiding on Earth to save us and themselves (smacks of Superman doesn’t it?) as well as super-powers (legacies) and some teenage angst thrown in for good measure.

Kim ‘Lion’ Harte has drafted in a book-shopper to review I Am Number Four. Introducing 13 year old Suzi Burns:

This book is a great read and although it’s about aliens the author managed to make it seem really believable… …This book is action-packed, gripping and has a touch of romance and  is the first sci-fi book I’ve ever read and it was so much better than I expected. I would highly recommend you read it!

Go get your own Legacy powers - g’wan!
