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.

I enjoy the TV Series more.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I think young people will enjoy this book. It is a great idea and has been a very successful TV series that I enjoy very much. The book was more about teen romance than the story of survive and exploring a new world.


What could Kass Morgan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I like the changes that were made from the book to the TV series. I also think Kass could have gone into a little more about the space station and what was really happening to the people that they had to send 100 kids to the planet. The book only went into how superficial the different groups of people were, but it felt more like everyday groups, not people trying to survive on a space station.


What three words best describe Justin Torres and Phoebe Strole ’s voice?

Enjoyable to listen to.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. It was too short and the story did not evolve enough for me.

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.
