Publisher's 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.

tv series is better

I saw the tv show before I saw the book so I was exited to see it was a written story, as they are usually better. Not really the case with this one. perhaps seeing the show tainted my expectations, but I was a little disappointed. I finished it because I thought it would take me beyond the first season of the show, but it actually ended much sooner. I am a 28 year old male, so I don't care for a ton of emotional love story stuff. I really don't mind a little, but the written book seemed to be way over the top, at least for me. 14 year old girls will probably love it. I did like having two narrators, one for male characters and one for the females, that was a good touch. but over all I think the tv series is the real winner.

Formulaic and repetitive

I loved the TV show on the CW so I thought I'd give this one a shot and bought the book. While the performance was mediocre the plot and characters were so poorly developed that their performance is the only good thing about this. Each chapter is told from a 1 of 4 character perspectives which is interesting BUT each chapter is basically written as "2 pages talking about what they are doing now, then flashback for the rest of the chapter". While I'm intrigued by how life was like before they landed on earth, I wanted a story that was equal parts "life in space" and "life on earth" but it was more about space. You hear a bit about the character's concerns about living on earth but you don't really see or hear about the struggles of survival. How do you build a fire? How do you learn to track animals? How do you build a shelter? How do you build a weapon? I mean as a reader, how am I supposed to believe that these children who have lived their WHOLE LIFE in space magically know how to survive on earth? There's only so many times you can say that a character "read it in a book" so they knew how to do it in real life.

I'm extremely disappointed in this book, from the characters, to the low vocabulary used, to the poorly described and developed scenery. I've read better fanfic on this concept/show than this, the original novel.
