Summary:

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, one hundred 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 pair of 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 hundred must fight to survive. They were never meant to be heroes, but they may be mankind's last hope.


Review:

The 100 is a YA sci-fi trilogy that has been made into a TV series that I haven’t watched yet but I’m excited to watched after I read this trilogy. Shortly after finishing this book I had the urge that I needed to pick up the sequel right away and I still do! The only thing keeping me from picking it up is I need to go out and buy it, soon!

I found this book to be captivating and very interesting being set on a spaceship and also on earth after it’s been abandoned for hundreds of years. This story follows four characters, Clarke a criminal in the eyes of space law, Wells, the chancellor’s son trying to save the girl he loves from being executed, Bellamy, trying to save his sister who’s been locked up and Glass, who manages to escape the spaceship being sent to earth. All four of these characters have been convicted of crimes for different reasons and as an experiment to know how toxic earth still is, they send 100 criminals with vital trackers to see.


I really enjoyed following all four of these characters and I enjoyed the adventure and exploration of earth but a couple of things that bothered me were that no one thought of exploring some more of earth after they landed, they decided to just stay put and the love triangle that happens on earth, I don’t get it! Trying to survive on a planted that hasn’t been lived on for so many years with minimal food and a love triangle start so quickly, I though that was so bizarre!

Overall I really enjoyed this book, I gave it a 4/5 stars and I will definetly be picking up the rest in this series. I would recommend this to readers who enjoy YA sci-fi, it was really fun to read.
