Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Dark and riveting, Morgan’s entry in the very popular dystopian, postapocalyptic YA subgenre blends science fiction, romance, and characters’ shadow sides with a mostly engrossing plotline. In a future lived on spaceships, long after the earth’s destruction, teenage delinquents are usually sentenced to die for their transgressions. Then 100 of them, who are deemed disposable guinea pigs, are instead sent to the ravaged earth in order to see if it is habitable for humans. Clarke, Wells, Bellamy, and Glass are the four narrators, through whose voices the story line sometimes glides and sometimes bumps along. The differing perspectives shed much light on the otherwise lightly drawn world setting, but it can sometimes be hard to leave one character for the next. Regardless, Morgan’s debut clips along at an easy pace because of its simple yet direct writing style. A mash-up of The Lord of the Flies, Across the Universe, and The Hunger Games this has already been tapped by the CW network for television production. It should appeal to fans of postapocalyptic novels seeking the next potentially big new thing. Grades 9-12. --Julie Trevelyan

Review

"It's easy to be drawn in by the Lord of the Flies-style tension that builds as the teens struggle to set up a new society on a battered Earth, and by the smoldering romances that hang in the balance."―Publishers Weekly

"Dark and riveting...A mash-up of The Lord of the Flies, Across the Universe, and The Hunger Games."―Booklist

"A mash-up of the hit TV reality show Survivor and traditional science fiction...Morgan's weave of pop-culture elements and politics make for a gripping read."―School Library Journal

"Likely to be a hit with readers who want their Pretty Little Liars mixed with Lord of the Flies."―The Bulletin

So I had been dying to get to read it for myself, and I finally managed to do so, and I was pleasantly surprised, abet a little let down. I think I had built up too my hype for myself and that my friends who read the book before me did the same, totally not on purpose but it happened.

I think the biggest deterrent for me was the 3rd person 4 Points of View. I was a little lost at first, which is something that is standard, but what killed me was that the book wasn't long enough nor were the chapters. And some characters got 3 pages, while others got 10. It was a little lop sided which made it somewhat difficult to really connect with them.

What I did love was that we got these flashbacks. Each chapter was half real time and half this is what got them there. We learned what went down with Wells and why he and Clarke had such issues. We got to find out about Bellamy and Octavia and Glass and Luke and their past discretion and what landed them on this ship.

I am excited to check out the next installment to see what happens. What is also cool is that the CW has picked this up as a show, although I haven't decided if I'm going to watch it yet. I suppose I'll just have to wait and see.

“This is going to be a TV show?” was the first thing I thought of when I turned the last page of this book.

I was initially interested in 100 by Kass Morgan when I found out it was going to be adapted into a TV show on CW channel (I think. I may have got this wrong, so please correct me if I got it mixed up!). As I have mentioned over and over again in my reviews, Dystopia and Post-Apocalyptic remain as my favourite genres ever, so it’s a no-brainer that I really wanted to get this book as soon as it was out. Conspiracies! Suspense! Thrills! I was expecting these all!

And yet…

Like many others before 100 by Kass Morgan…

It left me disappointed…

AGAIN.

It started with a bang. We’re introduced to Clarke, imprisoned somewhere in a space settlement, for allegedly doing a heinous crime, a crime which was also related to her parents’. We’re informed that in this world, as soon as a prisoner turns 18, he is granted a trial and can either go free or be put to death. Fortunately, Clarke has been chosen as one of the hundred teenage prisoners to be sent to Earth, their previous they left three hundred years ago due to the Cataclysm, an nuclear-something-radiation-something event that crippled their planet. They are to be sent there to find out if the world is still liveable, and if they survive, they will be pardoned of their felonies.

Sounds exciting, right? Yup, I was ecstatic myself. The general plot sounded like something that could attract A LOT of twists and conspiracies!

And then the romance came…

Which pretty much ruined this book for me.

Seriously! I get that all YA books have to be trilogy's but at least each one has a full arc of a storyline. The 100 doesn't end, it just stops. In the middle. No conclusion, no wind down, nothing. It's like she was wring a story and just walked away from it. It had such potential but turned out to be such a waste. You can't even write a spoiler because there are none. I can't believe I spent $10 on this.

Format: Hardcover
First impressions: Why hello there, Star Trek-lookalike cover! You are pretty. And very Star Trek-like. Is that font trademarked? I mean, seriously? Okay, I actually really like the cover--it's sharp and edgy and it is full of promising sci-fi action! I like sci-fi action! Give me all of the sci-fi action! And the kissing!

Also, this premise. One hundred juvenile delinquents get sent to a nuclear-devastated Earth as punishment, and also to see if it's safe to return to Earth. But of course, there are secrets about Earth and about their space station and no one really knows what the hell is going on. Not an entirely unique premise, per se, but I like it. I want to go down this path. Also, re: prettiness of the Star Trek cover!

Characters: I love that Morgan tried to make this an ensemble story. It's like, Lost, if the island were Earth and the rest of the world were the Universe. You have a really varied group of characters who come from different social stratospheres and have committed a variety of different crimes (some aren't even crimes), and they're all thrown together and abandoned. Some people are dangerous. Some people just want to help. The problem? I never felt the connections between the characters. They all know each other fairly well, some are best friends up in space, but it's like the moment this book starts, they're complete strangers.

But! We have Lost characters!

The Doctor: Clarke is a medical apprentice until she's thrown into the slammer. She's an orphan, and she hates humanity's government. She can also sew people up, which is a useful skill when you get dumped on Earth without any supplies or food or anything.

The Golden Boy: Wells is the Chancellor's son and he always does what's right.
