Good Points
My first thoughts on this book were slightly wary, due to the aliens-take-over-the-Earth concept. It didn't seem highly original.
I was taken completely by surprise.

Not only were the characters amazingly written and described. The plot was just...almost too good to be true.
Am I reading a ya book? Like, right now?

Nothing in this book was cheesy, and this book doesn't focus on the romantic air, more of the dangerous air. However, even the romance was not cheesy( okay, maybe slightly...when isn't romance cheesy?). There was some sort of love-triangle thing going on that never fully developed, but honestly, that makes me excited for the sequel. Who knew I would ever say a love triangle would interest me?

Firstly, the beginning starts off with Cassie talking sorta of about the alien take over, and wonders if she is the last person alive. She lives in the woods, her family died, except her brother...the usual of apocalyptic books. It didn't have me convinced at first. Actually, I spent alot of time avoiding this book. Please stop threatening me! I know, it was cruel of me!

It's not like it was bad. It was actually very interesting. Like, I said, it started off talking about her new life/ old life, and then things get crazy. She kills a guy.

After that( somewhere around there), Yancey switches the view to her past life. It gives us deeper depth to how her old life was, and how normal it was: school, crushes, etc. But, that just shows how very different her life was compared to her new life.

Talking about the different views, throughout the novel, you get to see "Zombie", Cassie, and other minor character's views. I actually really enjoyed this. It was meant to keep you guessing how aliens think, and how humans think. Could you be able to see the difference?

Trust me- after the first 100 pages, I was sucked into the action, trying to guess who was human, and who was not.

Now, my favorite part of this whole entire book, is the plot. I am baffled how well this author can plan out everything. Right when you thought you knew how things would pan out, things would get...interesting. I know I say that most plots I enjoy, but this ONE is just so truly amazing. If anything, buy this book just for the plot.

Now, I'm not going to say anything about anything related to the plot, because I'm afraid I may hint as what will happen. Just read the book!
