The Review of: I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore

15 Jan 2016 by Mikayla Bridges, No Comments »

Lorien was once a beautiful planet, and the people on the planet are what we would call superheros. That was before the war. Afterwards, everything was destroyed, besides nine of the Garde and their guardians. When the surviving nine left, a charm was placed upon them. This charm insured that they could only be killed in order, as long as the nine were apart from each other. John Smith aka number Four has been on the run for his entire life, never stopping always running. One, two, and three have been killed, so John knows he’s next.

This book has the basic high school characters, you have the jock/bully, the nerd, and the nice pretty girl who dated the jock. But you also have the new kind of characters like the ones from a different planet. So this book’s characters are not just the basic high school characters. Incorporating these two totally different kinds of personalities really makes I Am Number Four stand out compared to other books that try to mix in these characters. Not many can even work with the topic of aliens, so even just having this in the book makes it stand out even more.

This is the cover of the book I Am Number Four, by Pittacus Lore.


In the book, as the writing goes on it starts to go more and more in-depth about what happened to Lorien and the culture of Lorien. This really comes through when trying to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The writing in this book is just absolutely fantastic, everything flows nicely and nothing gets stuck. So, all together, the story is really well written and the reader can easily follow along without getting confused on one part.

Give it up for Pittacus Lore for letting us experience the world of I Am Number Four. Please give I Am Number Four a chance, you won’t regret it!

And when you think all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, there is always hope.”- Henri
