John is an extraordinary teen, masking his true identity and passing as a typical high-school student to elude a deadly enemy seeking to destroy him. Three like him have already been killed....He is Number Four.
The reason I read this book was because I saw the movie and liked it very much. I thought that reading it would be like watching the movie again, but I was wrong.
The good thing is the story. Being a book you get to know more details about Lorien, the Legacies and the lives of Henri and Four, which were helpful enough, because there not many explanations in the film. Also you get to know more about Four's relationship with Sam and Sarah, how it started and how he tells them the truth.
The bad things are not actually bad, but some annoying things you can find in books. An example is the fight scene at the end. It is not as breathtaking as the movie's, nor as anxious. Another thing is, and sorry for telling you, the characters' age. While in the film they are around seventeen, in the book they are about fourteen to fifthteen.
Bottom line, I recommend you the book because of the oppurtunity you'll have to learn more of the main characters. It was really good and I had a great time reading it.
