Review: The 100 (#1) by Kass Morgan
Summary from Goodreads:
In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland... before it's too late.
Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again.
I managed to grab both this book and the second in the series from Netgalley and I flew through this book (and now I plan on watching the CW show).
My only problem with the book was the fact that it had four POVS in the book (and so does the second) and I'm so sick of duel POVS. However, at least the author names the chapters with the characters name so it was easy to tell who it was. Some authors don't do that, ugh.
Despite that I loved the pacing and the authors writing style, it only took me a few sittings to finish this book. But the main thing I liked about this series is the characters, at around 50% done I loved all of them (expect Wells, lol).
I recommend checking out this series if you enjoy sci-fi and great characters.
