F you have watched the TV series based on "these books you now the basic premise However as usual the TV show takes a lot of liberties and " books you I Was A Stranger know the basic premise However as usual the TV show takes a lot of liberties and most everything except for character names and some basic motivationsThe 100 is set approximately 3 centuries after a nuclear event makes earth uninhabitable The onlynown survivors were on space colonies designed to escape Earth and eep the human race alive until the radiation levels lowered to a survivable level Unable to get any conclusive data from their tests and with the space stations deteriorating the council decides to send the 100 teens awaiting re trial on their 18th birthdays to the surface to see if their data is correct and the surface is survivable For obvious reasons this idea is fraught with danger Beginning with the fact that an entire group of teenagers is who have never even been out of a climate controlled area are now expected to survive and feed themselves in the woods with little to no shelter supplies provided by the adults sending them there Of course on the way down the incredibly old and ill maintained ships begin to fall apart upon re entering the atmosphere so supplies are lost as well as livesMost of this book is spent in flashbacks Hardly anything on Earth actually happens The flashbacks of main characters give the reader background of why they are on Earth and how they relate to each other They also provide context for the society and culture they left I am not against flashbacks but this was too much set up What actually happens on earth is perhaps 10% of book one As usual the book and characters are so much better than in the TV seriesThis book is neither terrible or good It was interesting It had enough to eep me reading until the end I will probably read the second book mainly due to curiosity of whether the story line becomes current even focused vs flashback focused It was the perfect book the story line becomes current even focused vs flashback focused It was the perfect book read while on the Stairclimber easy and reuiring no real brainpower All in all it s your typical shallow YA story love triangles included I enjoy reading sci fi and dystopian books and I was pleased when I stumbled across this book that it was part of a series of 4 I had no idea that there was a TV show until I googled the book and I plan to work my way through the books before watching the TV seriesThe premise is pretty simple there was a nuclear war on earth 300 years earlier and some of humanity have survived by living on spaceships above the earth s radioactive The 100 is the first book in a series of four by Kass Morgan The series starts off in space where the human race is living after a nuclear explosion on Earth many years ago There is only one problem they are running out of air on the ship and need to return to Earth To test whether the Earth is survivable they send down 100 young criminals all under 18 The series is written from the point of view of different members of the 100If you have watched the show be warned this is completely different This book is most similar to the pilot episode but after this book they go in completely opposite directions I loved both the show and the books but don t expect them to be similar WARNING First off in three books a month goes by These books have a snail pace Also the TV series is nothing like the book other than the basic premise ppl from space return to earth after apocalypse and six character names Relationships are changed and that powerful female lead in the TV series is a pathetic lovesick puppy reliant on men and mostly used as plot device to fill in background informationAt first I was excited to get a new story from the characters I love and to get backgrou.

nants of humanity live on modular space station divided between perceived class and privilege Strict laws are put in to save the last of mankind and there is little tolerance for those who put the space station at risk The story of The 100 focuses on four main characters who have all challenged the rules of the station for different reasons some selfish and some innocent Clarke was arrested and placed in jail for secrets she tries to hide from everyone around her Wells sacrifices everything family and friends for the love of a girl who refuses to forgive him Bellamy grew up in a family that defied the restrictive class rules of the station and is still haunted by the decisions of others though he would do anything to protect his family Glass finds herself caught between love and law and takes too long to make a decision about what she values mostclark wells and
about what she values mostClark Wells and are sent along with 97 other minors to earth in order to test the habitability of the planet Only convicts facing death are sent on what everyone assumes is a suicidal mission Glass was meant to join the trip to Earth but escapes at the last minute only to face different dangers on the space stationOne hundred children land on Earth to face challenges there were never prepared for And of course nothing is like it seemsWhat sounds like a great story premise is ruined by poor dialogue stunted character growth and a plot that works harder for the cliff hanger ending than it does to setup the reader in the previous 320 pages Each character tells their own story in present day narrative and flash backs It is interesting to see how the characters interact from different viewpoints but the jumps make the story feel disjointed Each character s story has a plot twist that The Lives of Stay-at-Home Fathers: Masculinity, Carework and Fatherhood in the United States
keeps the reader hooked but feels emotionally devoid when the predictable happens There are twists in the last third of the book that earned the story two stars but it doesn t make up for the failure of the rest of the taleOne other glaring issue was the immaturity of all the characters It makes sense that a group of teenagers would act like teenagers but unless space somehow retards the growth of adult minds there is no reason for the parents and leadership of the space community to act like juveniles There is very little common senses and logic applied by the surrounding characters and the rules that are carried out sound like the decrees of a defunct third world nation than a working government of a society that made its way into spaceI m sorry Kass but I will not be reading any books in this series I still plan on watching the TV show eventually I ve heard the show writers have handled the glaring flaws I m reading these after watching the series and there are uite a few details that are not the same whicheeps the books interesting in this situation I can t say I have a favourite out of the book or the series the different plot lines are really exciting to readThe story is relatively simple but works at a good pace and I m constantly excited to eep reading and find out what happens next Despite several issues with inconsistancy where parts of the plot contradict other parts of the story such as timelines of how long people are in certain places etc the stories flow well If you re a stipler for accuracy then I d maybe recommend avoiding them but if you can ignore the occasional thought of I m pretty sure it said they were there for double that amount of time in the first chapter then it s a really exciting read with some moments of thoughtfullness and consideration of class and poverty Ultimately it seems that these issues aren t too relevant to the plot. Ck Morgan Ka. Nd on the ship life But as it went along it became very clear this writer preferred cliche characters to the inspired writing that the TV show uses I decided to read this book after watching the first season of the TV series Immediately I was hooked mainly because I realised the book was so different We ve got new characters in this book including main character Glass and new storylinesThe narrative is split between four POV characters Wells Clarke Bellamy and Glass And I guess because I read this after having watched the series I can t help but compare it I soon realised that characters who d died in the TV series early on weren t going to die in the book instead we get to now a lot about them And these four characters are really well written They ve got flaws Though I have to admit that with the exception of Bellamy their narrative voices sounded a little similarWhile these four characters are extremely well written I found many of the secondary and minor characters a little flat I d have liked to see Luke and Thalia especially fleshed out a bit Octavia s characterisation seemed a little stronger but again not as strong as the POV charactersSo I loved the worldbuilding in this book Perhaps than in the tv series though it is of course similar But the book feels a lot realisticThe narrative is told through a mixture of present day action for all four POV characters and their flashbacks And the flashbacks are what really held the book together They made everything so much cohesive they also really helped me understand the lead up to the book s set up Reading the final flashbacks at the end was an aha moment as it made me truly understand what had been happening at the beginning Not to say that there hadn t been enough info provided at the start there had but the ending just gave it all that little bit of extra meaningSo this book is shorter than I was expecting it to be And although Glass had a clear arc in her narrative there wasn t so much a complete arc for Clarke Wells or Bellamy Instead the final few pages introduces another element the other people who have survivor on earth This clearly sets up For The Next Book the next book because of this for me the book s written like a TV series than a novel series I thought that was especially interestingAnd I do just want to say that although Clarke has two love interests Wells and Bellamy it s not really a typical love triangle which I really appreciated We see her with both of them at different times in the book but
I really appreciated We see her with both of them at different times in the book but romance is definitely not a huge drive force of the book which I really appreciatedThe writing is so addictive though and I couldn t put it down Highly recommended if you want a YA dystopianpost apocalypticscience fiction read I recently started watching the TV show that s why I decided to give the books a try and I m so happy I did there s so much detail and backstories in the books compared to the show and I loved Luke and Glass s story it s a shame they never made it to the show I was always interested in the books but I never read them until now and
to the show I was always interested in the books but I never read them until now and regret it because I love the sibling relationship between Octavia and Bellamy which in the show is so much different There s an actual bond to Bellamy and Clark in the books compared to the show where they re plat Okay I Gone: The Disappearance of Claudia Lawrence and Her Father's Desperate Search for the Truth
know it s YA And Inow many reviewers said its not like the TV show But I thought it would be in depth character driven not less I read the hunger games YA can be better than this This is terrible Unreadable I got two thirds through and stopped It s all teen girls and b In The 100 humanity has evacuated earth and moved to space after a devastating nuclear war The re.
