I truly have enjoyed this series up to now, but I am a bit apprehensive about what will happen in the next book. Honestly, I find the storyline as it relates to those on Earth compelling, but was always turned off on the chapters dealing with Glass and what was going on back at the space station. However, this book ends with Clarke and Bellamy looking up at the sky and realizing that the drop ships are now coming to Earth. I hope the arrival of the larger group doesn't upset the story line so far like it did in the series.
Also what I found strange that in the last few chapters, Wells realizes that there might be a sociopathic killer within the group, but instead of warning the others and investigating this, he and Sasha, and also Bellamy and Clarke, are just sitting around laughing and smiling like lovebirds. It was not the kind of ending that makes me want to rush off to find out what happens next.
I said in my review of The 100 that the book comes up wanting in comparison to the TV show and that is especially true of this second book in the series. There is a complete lack of conflict, except in the most superficial sense that some people don’t like each other, that makes the plot feel incomplete. The conclusion of The 100 promised action and tension, but every scene that could have been a point of rising tension was skipped over in favor of romance and coincidental relationship connections via flashbacks.
Book Review: The 100 day 21
I am writing an analysis on the book The 100 Day 21, the second book in the series, written by Kass Morgan. I liked this book very much. I liked it because of how the author always kept you on your toes and had a great storyline. I also liked how the the author told the story from 4 different characters ,Clarke, Wells, Glass, and Bellamy’s perspective. The book is more science fiction and I think that pre-teens and teen-agers would enjoy this book more. I think that younger kids and adults would not be interested in it as much.
I would rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 I gave it this rating because while the book was very good I feel that I would have given it a 5 if the author had more detail in some of the parts story that needed them.In the book the author used a lot of dialogue and I thought that was very good for the book. The book is written in third person so you don’t get to know what the characters are thinking. Also the use of a lot of dialogue is good because the book is told by four different character's perspective so we get more of an insight of what the characters are like from the dialogue. For example one of the main characters Clarke says “ This is insane.I can’t believe I’m talking to someone from Earth.” (pg.89) This quote shows Clarke’s emotions that we wouldn't be able to know without the quote because of the way the book is written.
In the book the author also made the characters very realistic which was good for the story because the book is science fiction so she made one part actually seem real. Throughout the book the author would show emotion in the characters through dialogue and from what other main characters in the book saw. For example Clarke says “ But it was terrible. I hated myself everyday” (pg.172) This quote from the book is showing how bad Clarke felt and how she hated watching the things that her parents did to children by testing on them with radiation. This makes Clarke realistic because she is expressing her emotions like disgust and anger through what she is saying.
Another thing that the Author did with the characters is that in every chapter she would give them a flashback moment. I thought that, that was very smart and helpful because when I started the book series they didn't explain what had happened in the past. We had to pick up with them in their current situations and figure out what happened from the flashback moments. For example when I met clarke she was in confinement but I did not know why. Also when I met Bellamy one of the main characters the police are crashing through his door but I did not know why either . I thought this was very effective in the story because not knowing what was going on made you want to read more so you could figure out what was happening from the flashback.
I think that there is also a theme to this book. Although it is not actually stated in the book I feel that the message the author is trying to convey is to not harm the Earth. The whole book series and book are about how after a nuclear war humans had to evacuate Earth because it was unsafe for them to live there anymore. They have been in space for over 300 years and finally they send humans down to check on the planet to see if it is able to inhabit life. The rest of the book is how they discover that there is already humans , animals, and plants on Earth and what they learn about them. So I feel that not harming the Earth is the silent message the author is trying to give the reader.
So in conclusion I feel that the book was very good. The author made the book good by making the characters realistic with emotion, having a lot of dialogue, and having flashback moments. Also I think that this is a good book for pre-teens or teenagers who like sci-fi or fiction books.
Middle books of dystopian trilogies are often just not as good as the other two books, but this is not the case with Day 21. There are fewer flashbacks in this one than in the first book, but the ones included really help gain understanding of the characters’ motivations. I found myself barely able to put the book down because I really wanted to know what would happen next. The last two or three chapters are the best with, like in the first book, some pretty dramatic twists.
