Back Jacket Hack-Job #23 - The 5th Wave

And we’re back for another installment of our Back Jacket Hack-Job! Today I bring you . . .




Aliens invade the earth with a five-wave plan. Humanity realizes its best chance of survival lies in the hands of children. Why? Because the aliens made one fatal mistake when they took away the thing that mattered most to children across the world.

Wave 1 destroyed technology. Fear ensues.

Wave 2 took out most of the coastal populations. With no access to technology, the Midwest survivors are left with nothing but the sight of endless cornfields. Fear turns to irritation.

Wave 3 killed a large part of the survivors with a strange virus. Kids learned that real zombies weren’t as cool as what they saw on TV. Irritation turned to anger.

Wave 4 separated the kids from the adults. They were reminded of how the Others took away their homes. Their families. Their PHONES. Anger turned to hatred.

Wave 5 is a mystery. But one thing is clear—it’s do or die time, mother-f*ckers.

Hahahaha. I really loved this book when it came out, and I love your version. Also, this is clearly a situation where the book is far better than the movie.

Great post Carrie, clever, ringing up amazon right now!

Yes, I agree with your assessment of book vs. movie here. Although, I do hope they finish the movies because I have this annoying thing where I don't like to leave things unfinished...

Enjoy!

LOL! That was a little too close to the actual book, but since the book was a bit of a hackjob itself I'll give it to ya!
