Where are the chapter headings?
The Infinite Sea (The Fifth Wave #2)
By: Rick Yancy
Genre: YA Sci-fi
3 out of 5
I was not looking forward to reading this book (as my stepson says, “It’s a work book”), however overall I enjoyed this one more than the first in the series. I listened to the first one on audio, which I LOVED because there were 2 narrators making voice distinguish clear. In both books, the chapters alternate between characters. I had expected, in the print version, it to be just as clear. That is not the case for this trilogy. There were even a few chapters I didn’t know which character was narrating until the last page of chapter. Often I cheated, otherwise, I had a hard time focusing on the words or would need to reread a paragraph after the narrator was identified. It was annoying and I would love to know the author’s purpose for this. Normally I love stories that alternate storytellers. I feel it makes a well-rounded story.
