Day 21- Day 21 picks up right where The 100 leaves off. The 100 have been on earth for 21 days and things are not going that well. Tensions are building between the main characters, they’ve lost a few of thier own, and the biggest shock, they’ve discovered they aren’t alone. The characters left on the ship are suffering their own crisis as well. This kind of story appeals to readers of all ages because we all wonder what would happen if. This was also a fairly quick read and there was a lot packed into these short pages. I can’t wait to see how to story continues and if there will be more books.
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.
In this pulse-pounding sequel to The 100, secrets are revealed, beliefs are challenged, and relationships are tested. And the hundred will struggle to survive the only way they can – together.
It has been twenty-one days since the hundred landed on Earth. They’re the only humans to set foot on the planet in centuries . . . or so they thought.
Facing an unknown enemy, Wells attempts to keep the group together. Clarke strikes out for Mount Weather, in search of other colonists, while Bellamy is determined to rescue his sister, no matter the cost. And back on the ship, Glass faces an unthinkable choice between the love of her life and life itself.
The 100- This was a great dystopian story. Nuclear War has happened and the human race has been relegated to living on a ship in space. Its been many years and the powers that be want to know if Earth in inhabitable again. They choose 100 teenagers, that are confined for a myriad of offenses, and send them to Earth to see if it’s liveable. That’s where this story really starts to take off. The story is told from 4 of these teenagers POV’s, switching off throughout the book. There is some great action, a little love and a lot of questions in this book. To me this has a bit of a feel of a futuristic Lord of The Flies. The strong survive and the weak are left behind, or worse. This was a fast read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I give it a 4/5.
