Description

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.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jul 19, 2010 – In this action-packed but formulaic novel, first in the Lorien Legacies series, John Smith appears to be a normal American teenager, living in Ohio with his father, attending high school, and falling for a local girl. But he's really something much cooler: an alien from the planet Lorien, and one of the last survivors of a race that was nearly wiped out by its enemies. And now the evil Mogadorians have traveled to Earth looking for survivors, with an eye toward wiping out this planet as well. John is destined to fight them, but will his superpowers manifest before it's too late? Lore (a Loric elder in the book, and a pseudonym for writer James Frey and a coauthor) provides a fast-moving plot and some genuinely creepy bad guys, though the basic premise is clichéd and the science won't pass muster with diehard SF fans. However, a Michael Bay–produced movie is planned for 2011, and for those looking for an undemanding, popcorn-ready read, this "guy—okay, alien—gets the girl and saves the world" adventure should do the trick. Ages 14–up.

Awesome

This was such a great book! It will be different from the movie but so what. This was just so well written and a great story! If you like reading, of any kind you will love this book.

I am Number Four

Great book, never wanted to stop reading. Hope they make a second

Omg. Omg. O-M-G.

This is by far the best book I've ever read, an I hate reading! I didn't want to put it down! Lemme give you a list:

Pros:
Mystery in finding out John's legacies
Perfect amount of action
Same for humor
Same for romance
Lots of totally different action scenes so it doesn't get boring
Details the fiction so much it feels real (Lorien)

Cons:
John never got a major legacy
Lingering questions at the end
