Présentation de l'éditeur

John Smith seems like an ordinary teenager, living an ordinary life with his guardian Henri in Paradise, Ohio. But for John, keeping a low profile is essential; as soon as he gets any attention, John and Henri are on the road again, looking for a new town to settle in. Because John is NOT an ordinary teenager. He's an alien from the planet Lorien, and he's on the run. A group of evil aliens from the planet Mogadore who destroyed Lorien are on the hunt for the nine Loriens who escaped. A protective charm on the surviving nine ensures that they can only be killed in order of their numbers. Of the teenagers left hiding on Earth the first three are dead. John is number four.

L'histoire de John Smith est saisissante, malgré les quelques temps morts. C'est plutôt bien écrit: un anglais très facile à comprendre ( texte écrit au présent ), avec tous les tics de la langue américaine parlée.... Les cent dernières pages deviennent cependant plus difficiles. D'après les critiques, c'est la même chose même avec la traduction française. Les actions s'enchaînent, les révélations, les passages tragiques... Je ne vais en dire plus pour ne pas gâcher la lecture. Mais en fin de compte,dans le reste du livre, il ne se passe pas grand chose. l'amour idyllique entre le personnage principal et Sarah( ils passent leur temps à s'embrasser) devient énervant au bout d'un moment. Les petites misères du lycée, les flash backs... les méchants très méchants qui tuent tout le monde, polluent, vivent dans des grandes villes(pourquoi est-ce qu'il faut parler de la pollution partout?), les Loriens, très gentils, sur une planète verte et fleurissante tués par les méchants...

Bref, c'est plutôt sympa, mais sans plus. encore un livre divertissant mais qui est loin de renouveler le genre.

Very captivating. We don't want this book to end. The suspens is here all along
The story takes us and we got attached to the characters.
I was afraid that it would look like all the other stories on this theme but not at all.
Very very good book.
I am impatient to see how the movie will be. I hope they didn't change it too much.
I can't wait for August, 23rd for the next chapter!!!!!!!

Nine Lorien teenagers were sent to earth to await their legacies, special powers that each possess, in order to return to their planet to save it. Number Four, Daniel Jones, is moving from Florida to Paradise, Ohio, with his new name, John Smith, and his Cepan, or guardian, Henri.

In Paradise, John tries to start a life as he acquaints himself with Sarah Hart, a friendly, smart ex-cheerleader. Of course, with an ex-cheerleader there's an ex-boyfriend, Mark James, who isn't so happy about the chemistry between John and Sarah. As John begins to fall for Sara, she becomes another person who would be in danger from the Mogadorians, another alien race that are hunting the Lorien teens.

Each Lorien teen is at a different place on Earth. Three have already been caught and killed, which is made clear through the scars on each of the remaining teens' ankles. As another one dies, another scar will appear in order to determine who will be hunted next. Because of a charm, the nine teens must be killed in their chronological order. As number four, John knows he's next.

Despite its controversial co-author, one can't argue that I AM NUMBER FOUR reads just like a script, so it's no surprise that it has been turned into a movie. The novel itself has scenes that are so action-packed, with a little romance thrown in, that it will captivate readers of all ages.

With the sequel, THE POWER OF SIX, releasing in August 2011, only read I AM NUMBER FOUR if you are willing to become addicted to another series.

James Frey (the author) is a weird fish, but he's a Robert Louis Stevenson of our day - just a plain natural storyteller.

You can't stop reading this series - it has the edge young people need to keep reading. It's great stuff, it mens something, it's poetically perfectly-connected.

As a footnote, a (totally hopeless) film was made of one of these books some years ago; just forget all about that and enjoy these instant new classics. I am number four!

This Pittacus Lore fella sure can spin a yarn... 8 juillet 2010
Par H. Bala - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Man, this book is seriously garnering heaps of exposure, what with its already having been optioned for a movie, this movie scheduled for a 2011 release. I AM NUMBER FOUR, which admittedly is an awesome title, is penned by someone named Pittacus Lore, who claims to be a ten thousand year old space alien seeking to warn us of hostile other aliens currently lurking in our midst. This is cute. Except that two folks named Jobie Hughes and James Frey are the actual authors.

The high stakes premise goes like this: Nine alien children have fled their annihilated homeworld of Lorien and have sought refuge on Earth. Having scattered to the winds, they are being hunted down, one by one, by a separate and malevolent extraterrestrial race from a dying planet. Thanks to a quasi-mystical protective charm placed on the Nine, they can only be killed in order (although, my bet is that Number One doesn't regard this charm as all that "protective"). As the book opens, three of the Nine have already been tracked down and murdered. So we come to Number Four.

His name used to be Daniel Jones. It used to be something else before that, and then something else before that, and so on. Ten years on Earth, ten years of hiding and staying always on the move and staying safe and alive... this is the life of Number Four and his guardian and mentor whose name is Henri (oddly, Henri's alien accent sounds very much like a French accent). Number Four has just collected a new scar circling his right ankle, this an indicator that another of the Nine has been recently slain. Three scarred rings around his ankle, and so Number Four knows he's next. And it's time to pack up the bags again, time again to get the eff out of Dodge.

Henri and Number Four - or "John Smith," his new assumed name - have always gravitated to tiny towns, conjecturing that their hunters would stick out more like sore thumbs in tiny towns. They end up in Paradise, Ohio. For John it's another try at blending in in school but without making friends, because no one can be trusted. Except that it's a little different this time. John Smith befriends a geeky kid who is a science-fiction enthusiast. He adopts a stray mutt named Bernie Kosar (and Bernie Kosar, by the way, is easily the book's breakout character). And John Smith also meets a girl. So much for staying on one's guard.

My first impression, while reading the first few pages of this book, was that this whole thing is very reminiscent of two short-lived television sci-fi shows: THE POWERS OF MATTHEW STAR from the early '80s and, more recently, ROSWELL. But then, pressing on, I guess it's inevitable that comparisons to the X-Men would surface. The Nine teens are holing up while waiting for their superhuman powers (called Legacies) to develop. These Legacies vary, and there's no guessing as to which abilities a Nine would latch up to. Number Four is at that age when his Legacies would shortly begin to crop up. And they do start cropping up, one by one, and there is a really fun factor in watching our sympathetic alien boy try to cope with each incoming talent.

Gratifyingly, the alien hunters from Mogadore aren't only downright intimidating, they seem even more powerful than the Nine and their guardians (and the guardians aren't at all equipped with superpowers). This drives up the suspense. What I AM NUMBER FOUR has going for it is its irresistible sci-fi/superhero premise and a pace that really moves. Number Four is a likable protagonist, although someone needs to explain to him the exact definition of keeping a low profile. After all, dude is supposed to be in hiding and fitting in. He really doesn't do much of either. None of the supporting cast break out of their stereotypical mold, and only the scene-stealing dog Bernie Kosar seems to be an original character. I will say that John's geeky pal Sam does come up with a touching reason for why he's such a sci-fi freak and why he wears those fugly prescription glasses. And as much as I dig Sarah, her and John Smith's teen romance feels like any other teen romance in YA lit. It comes in a nice, predictable package. Sarah is gorgeous and nice... and, well, bland. Another issue I have concerns a high school bully whose turnaround comes too abruptly. Perhaps the most intriguing element in the book concerns the mystery surrounding the very peculiar Bernie Kosar (see how I keep coming back to the dog?).

I AM NUMBER FOUR is the first book in a planned six-book series, and it reads very visual, especially in the explosive action sequences, and no wonder this is being made into a movie. Number Four performs bits of astounding derring-do throughout the book, but things get really amped up during the final 90 pages. It all culminates in one of those blistering "Release the Kraken!" Jim Butcher-type paranormal (except it's sci-fi) shoot-'em-outs. I can see why Bay and Spielberg are salivating so.

I liked this book, and will most definitely be thre when the sequels come out. But here's the thing, if you're hanging your hat on something that's on par with the likes of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games series or even Michael Grant's Gone novels, this won't suit you. I AM NUMBER FOUR isn't as immersing or resonant as those books. THE HUNGER GAMES made me well up in places. GONE reads like LORD OF THE FLIES as co-authored by Rod Serling and Stephen King. I AM NUMBER FOUR had me eating up all the "superhero without a costume" elements, and it's always nice when you can transfer yourself onto a central character who is superstrong and superfast and who won't back down from bullies. I did really like that a surprise character shows up very late in the book, and it looks like she'll be heavily featured in future installments. I'll give this one 4 stars out of 5, because I'm shallow like that and big, bold, f/x-heavy fighty fights never ever fail to transfix me. And because the dog Bernie Kosar is in it.

"He said confusedly" 24 février 2011
Par Riss - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I'm going to write this review while trying to grapple with the emotional conflict I Am Number Four left me with: disappointment and... well, I don't know a noun for 'bland shrugging'. I'm keeping this spoiler free as well.

Before I wrestle those demons, I want to start straight off and say that I saw the movie first. I had heard about the book from a few friends and wasn't interested. But, the movie previews looked reasonably enjoyable. I like action, explosions and super powers. Frankly, I was expecting two hours of mind numbing violence and cool chase scenes.

I liked the movie, despite it's abysmal reviews. It reminded me a bit of Xmen, a lot of Smallville and a touch of Jumper. That's a promising mix. There's some romance, but it's very light if not perfectly easy to ignore... which... is definitely a fault in its own right, but take it for what it is. After watching it, I decided I had to get the book. I could see potential, and since Hollywood is not often kind to YA book adaptations I gave the original the benefit of the doubt. I wanted a little more depth to the story and figured it would expand much further in text. They were all likable characters in the movie; I wanted to know more about them. I found the book on sale and took a leap of faith with my wallet instead of checking it out from the library. A red flag went off when I opened it and saw the page layout. The page numbers will tell you 440. I cannot describe how misleading this is unless you personally open the book and look at the margins. They are big enough to drive a whaling ship through them. Condensed, it probably would not push 250 pages. But, like I said, leap of faith and all.

Welcome to my demons.

This book is written by two different people and holy cow can you tell. The problem is that one writer is better than the other. Some of the chapters are so dry and brittle that I caught myself staring at the wall instead of reading. There is a minuscule (if any) amount of description or voice when these pieces of the books pop up. It's written with the power and dignity of a grocery list.

- I just entered a house.
- There is a couch.
- A girl was sitting on the couch.
- I hope Sara likes me.
- Golly Mark is a jerk.

This is NOT what I expected. I wanted expansion, not limitation. What goes on inside John's head? I dunno. Not very much apparently. The writing is so dry it's kind of disgusting. I wasn't expecting Stephen King or JK Rowling here, but something other than "the sky looked blue today. I'm wearing nike sneakers." would have sufficed. By the way, do you like the title of my review? I hope so. Because it's the direct line from I Am Number Four that broke me.

Author 2's parts of the book are much more... I loath to say "better", so let's go with "bearable"... because there's actual prose. John sometimes even has personality and emotions! Whoa! It wasn't fantastic, or even near an acceptable second draft, but it was better than reading the back of a cereal box, which is something I guess.

Most of it takes place in high school, centered around John acting out life as a typical kid (aside from flashlight hands). Do you remember very much from every day of school? No? That's because it's BORING. And it's going to stay BORING unless you tackle it from an interesting angle. Of which the authors, apparently, are incapable. This. Should. Be. Easy. The plot is about a teenager with developing superpowers who is on the run from murderous aliens. How do you mess that up? How? This story is derivative and needs strong characterization and confident writing to stay afloat. It's an honest shame it turned out how it did.

I'll end with admitting that I'm slightly off of the target audience list. I'm 20 and in college, and this is geared more towards jr high and high school. Regardless, I read a lot of YA books, and even when I was in middle school I would not be impressed by this wad of mediocre crap. The authors think their audience is stupid and can't handle depth or subtlety. That's all there is to it.

edit: While looking around the net for other I am Number Four reviews, I stumbled on something disturbing. James Frey (author of A Million Little Pieces, a supposed memoir where he lied about everything which, by the way, is the direct opposite of a memoir) is one of the two people who worked on it. By 'worked on it' I mean had someone else create the story and most of the writing and then not really give them credit or money (that someone was Jobie Hughes). Frey is currently running a so called young adult fiction machine; basically an assembly line made up of inexperienced, new writers who are so desperate for publishing that they'll consider his slimy hand. He wants to mass produce the "next Harry Potter", as he so lovingly put it. I don't freaking think so, buddy.

If you google "james frey full fathom five" you'll dig up plenty of information on it, including a ridiculous contract. I advise you to stay away from this venomous predator and his line of commercialized desperation.

A sci-fi adventure that guys and girls can get on board with 14 février 2011
Par Noelle Posadas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle avec audio/vidéo
In the not so distant past I worked at a few book stores. A problem I ran into frequently was finding books for teen boys. The YA market is flooded with books meant solely for girls. Boys have always been a harder sell when it comes to reading and publishers haven't made it an easier job, especially when they have flooded the teen market with paranormal romance.

So recommendations for teen boys often meant I would recommend The Hunger Games. Unfortunately many guys aren't too keen on reading a book in which the main character is a girl, no matter how good the story is. So after going through the other 5 or 6 good teen guy books I could think of I would often recommend a book in the general fiction and literature section, but parents often fear that their children will encounter questionable subject matter. Which they may, but they should also remember many of the books their children read in school are found in the fiction and literature not the teen section.

I found "I am Number Four" to be a great action adventure, that followed the traditional hero archetype. The main character, number Four or John Smith, is as relatable as a alien teenager on the run can be. The surrounding cast of characters rounds out this alien boys average existence, Henri, his alien guardian/father figure, Sam, his nerdy best friend, Sarah, his crush, and Mark, a bully and Sarah's ex. The story is a super power driven action packed adventure, filled with all the tender feelings and angst that a every teenager has.

It was a quick read. I got through it in about a day and a half. I would recommend this book for anyone over the age of 13. I hope that the quick success of this book will bring about a revamp of the YA publishing field and allow for more guy teen fiction or fiction that can cross gender lines. Anyone that truly enjoyed this book should read The Hunger Games. I can't wait to see the film and read the rest of the series. Happy reading to you all.

Even more short stories 27 juillet 2013
Par John - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Before anything is said on this product, I would just like to point out that there was a previous collection of three short stories called I Am Number Four: The Lost Files. This is sort of the sequel to that. What it contains is three short stories called The Search For Sam, The Last Days of Lorien, and The Forgotten Ones. The Search for Sam and The Forgotten Ones are the continued story of Adamus Sutekh, a Mogardian whose story began in The Forgotten Legacies in I Am Number Four: The Lost Files. Long story short, he has all of Number One's memories and as a result, he's become sympathetic to the Lorics. Anyway, he was thrown off a cliff trying to save Number Three, and now he's trying to live a normal life away from aliens. All I'm going to say is, that doesn't last long. The Last Days of Lorien is a prequel to the whole series; it tells the story of Sandor, Nine's Cépan (mentor), living on Lorien before it was destroyed.
So is this worth buying? First off, each short story is roughly the length of a third of a normal book. Secondly, I thoroughly enjoyed all three stories. (And by the way, it also contains the first chapter of The Fall of Five, which has not yet come out at the time of this writing.) Finally, it's an excellent addition to the series, and is solely quality story-telling, unlike Rick Riordan's Lost Files, which contain puzzles and frills that are unnecessary (in my opinion.)
In conclusion: I bought it, and if you enjoy this series, I would recommend buying this. It's only nine bucks, and you've probably wasted more on things not as enjoyable.

If you love the "Lorien Legacies", then you will definitely love this! 6 août 2013
Par Taylor J. Huston - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Lorien Legacies is one of the greatest series ever created in the history of books! Each novel in the installment is just beautifully written. All the characters will capture your attention. The storylines are freaking amazing. And the action-packed sequences will keep you reading until the very end!

True, each story is small and could have been bigger in their own way, but when you put three of those mini-stories in one volume, then you get your very own "spin-off" story set! The three stories of this book, "The Search for Sam", "The Last Days of Lorien", and "The Forgotten Ones", are about characters who play huge role for the main series. It tells about people who were "behind the scenes" and what they have went through. The stories themselves are almost like "origins" about how these certain characters began and how they fought to survive.

These "Lost Files" give us the answers to the questions that cannot be fully explained in the main series, allowing us to get the bigger picture of how things are on the sidelines. You will love every moment of these stories!

First off, we have poor Mogadorian, Adamus Sutekh, who has lived a tough life with his "control-freak" father and "over-achieving" family. He witnesses the death of Number One and is later plugged into the brain of One herself (if you read the "Fallen Legacies" that is) and then forced to deal with One throughout his coma, where he learns a few life-lessons along the way and ends up switching sides for the Garde. From that moment, he tries to prevent Two and Three's deaths, but fails and ends up betrayed by his own kind. Left for dead, our Mogadorian hero finds himself on more adventures in two of these stories that are presented in this "Lost Files", "The Search for Sam" and "The Forgotten Ones". Trust me, you will love this new hero, even if he is a Mogadorian. You will also love the relationship between him and One (spiritually anyway). Not to mention that "The Forgotten Ones" will lead directly into the fifth novel that is coming out soon.

And secondly, we have Number Nine's Cepan, Sandor, who we last saw in "Nine's Legacy" (and sadly died). But this time, we find ourselves in the past, back on Lorien (before it is destroyed). Instead of "Mr. Wise Cepan", we see a whole new Sandor on Lorien. He is rebellious and very awesome at breaking into things. We learn his story in "The Last Days of Lorien" and also about the destruction of Lorien through his eyes. Not only that, we also get a few appearances from a few "certain" characters who have appeared in the main series. So be on the look out, you may find them. And yes, you will also get to see how Nine and Sandor meet. I won't reveal anymore as it is way better to read than to tell big time "spoilers".

Trust me, you love this! Buy the book and read these people's stories! They will explain everything (well, almost everything)! But seriously, they do such a beautiful job at staying true to the main series!
