Review: The 100 by Kass Morgan


In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland... before it's too late.

Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again.

I haven’t seen the show The 100, but I always thought the promos looked interesting. When I got a chance to review the book, I jumped at the opportunity. Overall, I liked the book as a series starter, but from the premise, I was hoping for a little more excitement.

The plot is so original that I couldn’t wait to see how the teens adapted to their new lives on Earth. The world building was definitely my favorite part of the book. I loved the way the author described both life on the spaceship and life in a wild uninhabited Earth.

The characters were all intriguing, but I didn’t really think four points of view were necessary. Honestly, I thought Bellamy was the best character in the book and I could’ve read the whole novel in his POV. The constant POV switching slowed down the plot for me and I found myself putting the book down more often than I usually do. I am a super fast reader, but this took me more than a week to finish.

Overall, I think the characters and premise are strong enough to carry the series along. The 100 was a nice setup for future books and I’ll likely pick up the next one.

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
