Publisher's Summary

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.

Also included is a sneak listen to the first chapter of the next book in the series. Enjoy!

    "Book great ,Movie not so."

    Nice to know there are some nice aliens, instead of just the ones bent on the destruction of earth. Don't panic those are there too.
    main theme hope and courage with a generous sprinkling of love and honor. Above all lots of action.

    Story
    "I saw the movie and wanted to read the book."
    Would you try another book from Pittacus Lore and/or Neil Kaplan?

    I'm not sure I would. this book was YA and while I can sometimes enjoy that genre I found this one to be somewhat slow. the development was laborious and I kept waiting for the fateful aliens to come down and finish off"4". It just moved way too slow for me.


    Would you recommend I Am Number Four to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not. I might tell them to read it if they saw the movie but I would tell them that the set up is long and the action slow.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I enjoyed the story of an isolated young man coming into manhood and having his first real relationship. Those stories are always sweet and romantic.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I did see the move. I remember the movie being mildly entertaining as well. I would give that a 3 star rating too. for the same reasons.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth reading if you can get past the long set up.

    I originally got Audibles to listen to Hunger Games and Lord of the Rings Series. I ended listening to more books like LoTR and HG.

    "I enjoyed listening"
    If you could sum up I Am Number Four in three words, what would they be?

    Another take on Superman


    What other book might you compare I Am Number Four to and why?

    Superman . Aliens on earth that fled their home planet while young due to destruction of home planet. The people (another alien race) who destroyed the aliens home planet are now on earth.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Female voices were horrible. Male voices were good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The movie version was HORRIBLE compared to this story


    Any additional comments?

    I had trouble not wanting to stop listening. Now I reserve sequels to drives >1 hour

    The first book of the series and I'm hooked. I'm glad to see there are more than three books in the series. It has an original plot and keeps you wanting for more. I

    "Good Story, bad narrator"

    I really did like the book. It was a bit childish at times, but good. However the narrator is questionable. Most character voices outside of the main characters are extreme. Women sound whiney, and others sound like cartoon voices. I wish he just read all in e same voice.

    "Entertaining Story - Incredibly bad narration."

    My 12-year-old boy & 10 year old girl and I all enjoyed the story. Very rare. We also ALL hated the narration.
    Kaplan's John Smith was okay. His Henri was pretty good. Sam, Sarah & Mark are all but unbearable. UN-BEAR-ABLE. Kaplan must be related to someone very high up at Audible or Amazon or the Author's nephew or something. There's no other explanation as to how anyone approved this narration.
    It's awful. Sam sounds like he has a comically bad head cold. Mark sounds drugged and slow and unrealistic. Sarah doesn't sound even remotely feminine...These characters are all horrid.

    Did I mention the narration was awful?!?

    "Wow, better than expected!"

    I got this on sale, expected a so so book. Not so! Even though the main character was a teen, it was intriguing and captivated my interest to the end. The sneak listen ensures I will listen to them all. My husband liked it too. Neil Kaplan did a great job on narration, I want to know who Pittacus Lore really is, LOL. Great job of making a believable sci-fi/fantasy!
