My Rating: 3/5
There are four point-of-view characters in The 100 which I liked however they often sounded quite like each other which made it jarring to read at times – Bellamy was the best written character, when it comes to unique voice, by far.
The story in The 100 itself wasn’t that interesting. I was expecting there to be adventure with the hundred roaming the woods, finding new plants and animals – more of a survival story. But the story felt shallow.
This book felt more like an introduction to the characters, not a story on survival which I was expecting. Maybe it’s my fault for assuming the ideal plotline, but after the reveal at the end of this first book, I am hoping to see more of what I came for in the second one.
Overall, The 100 was not terrible, but certainly not great either.
