Summary

The Hunger Games meets Lost in this spectacular new series. Now a major TV series on E4.

No one has set foot on Earth in centuries - until now.

Ever since a devastating nuclear war, humanity has lived on spaceships far above Earth's radioactive surface. Now, 100 juvenile delinquents - considered expendable by society - are being sent on a dangerous mission: to recolonize the planet. It could be their second chance at life...or it could be a suicide mission.

Clarke was arrested for treason, though she's haunted by the memory of what she really did. Wells, the chancellor's son, came to Earth for the girl he loves - but will she ever forgive him? Reckless Bellamy fought his way onto the transport pod to protect his sister, the other half of the only siblings in the universe. And Glass managed to escape back onto the ship, only to find that life there is just as dangerous as she feared it would be on Earth.

Confronted with a savage land and haunted by secrets from their pasts, the 100 must fight to survive. They were never meant to be heroes, but they may be mankind's last hope.

Certainly worth a read if you’re a fan of YA dystopian fiction!

Very well narrated, if for a few cringe-worthy gruff moments, and a good first book by Kass Morgan. Certainly can see her writing style progress as the book goes on. As a result of this it takes a moment to engulf yourself in the narrative but then you’re in for the long run. Certainly worth a read if you’re a fan of YA dystopian fiction!

Disjointed utter garbage

From the very start I knew this was going to go downhill very quickly for me. The overall concept and story isn't bad if the author had spent any real time telling it and not spent most of her time making every single character have a love interest. It's a YA novel so there is always some bits of that but this book cannot go a chapter without giving us lines upon lines of lovey dovey garbage while not actually advancing the overall story. The book feels disjointed as it feels you spend more time in flashbacks than the current story and it isn't always clear you are in a flashback until you are a few minutes in, the narrators didn't help with this and they had pauses mid chapter for no reason etc. Overall a terrible experience and I wish I got that 7 hours of my life back.

Great value

I got this as I liked the e4 series and wanted to read the original. The book is a multi voice tale with plot twists the TV misses out and is a great listen. I shall now be getting the next parts of the series

Caught my attention

I gave been struggling to enjoy an audible book for awhile. This book grabbed my attention immediately and kept me going for 90% of the book.

read it before watching the TV series.

when you have watched the series, you realize the huge differences between the 2. Which makes it a bit difficult to go through the book, after havimg watched the TV series.

Starts slowly compared to the TV show

Alot more background story than the TV-show has. Not that much "action" in this one though, but i expect the next book in the series will have quite a bit more of it
