Book Review: I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore

I loved this book.

Book Description
Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books—but we are real.

Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. we have lived among you without you knowing.

But they know.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They killed them all.

I am Number Four.

I am next.


I already cut to the chase by saying I love this book. It's well written, imaginative, and fast paced.

Who wrote this? This may be a debut for "Pittacus Lore", but it's not a debut for someone. The author bio leaves no dispute that Pittacus Lore is a pseudonym:
Pittacus Lore is Lorien's ruling Elder. He has been on Earth for the last twelve years, preparing for the war that will decide Earth's fate. His whereabouts are unknown.
I just did some googling and it appears James Frey - controversial author of A Million Little Pieces - is the guy behind Pittacus Lore. I can't wait until August 23 to get my hands on The Power of Six.


Can I just say how much I :heart: Bernie Kosar?

  2. Cool! I really liked it, too. Looking forward to the next book.

    I've heard the movie isn't too good.

  3. I've been hearing mixed reviews on the movie. I'm not a stickler when it comes to adaptations. Even with the changes, it's like visiting an old friend. As long as they do right by Bernie Kosar... I'll be fine. :)
