The Bulletin
"Likely to be a hit with readers who want their Pretty Little Liars mixed with Lord of the Flies."
From the Publisher

Praise for The 100:"It's easy to be drawn in by the Lord of the Flies-style tension that builds as the teens struggle to set up a new society on a battered Earth, and by the smoldering romances that hang in the balance."—Publishers Weekly

"Dark and riveting...A mash-up of The Lord of the Flies, Across the Universe, and The Hunger Games."—Booklist

"A mash-up of the hit TV reality show Survivor and traditional science fiction...Morgan's weave of pop-culture elements and politics make for a gripping read."—School Library Journal

Kirkus Reviews
2014-10-06
The 100 teenage convicts sent to recolonize Earth (a need more pressing than they know) in The 100 (2013) discover just how inhabited the planet really is. As in the series opener, the narration is divided among characters. Amid frequent flashbacks, Bellamy, Clarke and Wells struggle through love triangles on Earth, while up in space, Glass updates readers on the colony's status. The situation's deteriorating rapidly—they're running out of oxygen, and the colony doesn't have enough dropships to take everyone to Earth. Class conflicts among the three ships are highlighted in the subsequent struggle, yet the root of this animosity is still a mystery. On Earth, the survivors of the 100 cope with both the most recent attack by the Earthborn and a mysterious illness—possibly radiation poisoning. The teens capture an Earthborn girl and discover that they aren't the first colonizers sent. Rather than getting any useful information from the girl (it's all withheld for last-minute reveals), they waver between wanting to execute her and including her in relationship drama. It's amazing anything survival-related happens considering the amount of energy spent on characters' rapidly vacillating feelings toward one another (the dynamic appears to be a binary one: love or loathing). Despite this, the novel is still faster paced than The 100. Additionally, Glass' storyline speeds up at the conclusion, positioning readers for the next installment. A logic-light, romance-heavy novel that evidently has no aspirations beyond accompanying the CW series. (Science fiction. 14 & up)

    (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis Thanks to Little, Brown Books for Young Readers and NetGalley.)

    This was a really enjoyable sequel, and I really want to read the next book in the series now!

    I really liked the characters in this book, and I liked how they developed during the course of the book. Each had their own problems, and each had their own strengths. I really admired how strong Clarke was against adversity, and how Bellamy continued to look for his sister, even if he did come off as a bit of a jerk at times!

    The storyline in this was good, and I liked how we moved forward in this book. It was good to see what was happening to the people on earth, as well as what was happening back up on the ship that they had left. There were some plot points that I saw coming, but there were also some parts that I really enjoyed.
    There was a little bit of romance in this, but not a lot. It was more a continuation of how some couples got on rather than anything new.

    The ending to this was another cliff-hanger, but I really liked the action. Can’t wait for the next book now!
    Overall; great sequel,
    8 out of 10.

    I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
    As soon as I finished book one and had my review up and posted I dived into book two. 

    So we are 21 days into the kids or young teenagers on Earth. They are slowly learning how to survive, with the help of Wells everyone is learning how to build huts to live in, we have Bellamy who is hunting and helping by bringing food when he can, and of course Clarke is doing all she can to help those that are injured or sick.
    We still have 4 POV's and they are the same characters as in the first book which I thought was pretty good to keep the same characters so we didn't get thrown off. 
    The only problem I had with the POV's was in book one the author did a great job letting us know in each chapter the present and the past. By the change of the font so it all didn't blend in together. In this story she didn't do that. I found myself on more than one occasion going back to make sure I was reading the past and not the present as it was hard to tell being as the font was not changed. I know something silly to complain about.

    So at the end of book one we learned that Octavia who is Bellamy's sister was kidnapped. Then in this story Wells actually captures someone who is trying to sneak away from their camp. But this is not just someone this is someone who actually lives on Earth. That means that there have been people here before the one hundred. And we get to meet them just once so it makes me want to read more to find out about these people. And revelation that was revealed to Clarke!
    There are no laws that are set and everyone well almost everyone wants to kill this Earth person. But Bellamy needs her alive to tell him where his sister is at. The question is will this girl live or will she die? Will Octavia be found?

    As we are getting POV's from Bellamy, Clarke and Wells on Earth. We are getting the POV from Glass who is still on the ship. And what she is going through is something that is scary. They are running out of oxygen in space and some people will live and some will not. From those in space who will make it to Earth?
    There is some action, and still a whole lot of people kissing each other. I did enjoy how the characters were learning to adapt to living on Earth, and were trying to come together as one. I have to say I did enjoy this book not sure if I liked it more than the first or if I like them both the same. Hopefully there is another book.

    more from this reviewer

    Great

    Another good book. This book still switched between the same people. I'm really digging the characters. I like them immensely the more I read about them. I'm really angry about t.v. show Wells now especially with the big reveal near the end of this book and I think he's a cool dude. I really like Sasha and hopefully there will be more of her. There wasn't much of Glass but I have a feeling there will a lot of her in the next one. That girl has been through a lot and I think she may be my fav in the series.

    There were some slight inconsistencies. Nothing major but I caught because I read these books back to back. I do wish there was more when it came to the rebel "Earthborns" but I think (hopefully) in the next book we'll see more of them. If not there is something else to look forward to reading that involves Clarke. So, yeah I liked the book and was disappointed when I got to the end because I didn't want it to be done. I don't think I can wait for the next one.

    *I received this through NetGalley*

    I wish it had been longer.

    I loved The 100 and was super excited about this book. Kass Morgan doesn't disappoint this book had lots of excitement and I love the romance between Clarke and Bellemy and Luke and Glass. The only thing I didn't like was the darn book was too short! I am looking forward to book three! I also like the idea of the earthborns not being crazy war painted killers....like the show lol

    I left book 1 hoping that book 2 would fulfill some of the promise in this story line. I am happy to report that I got my wish. Read my review of book 1 here.




    Day 21 does a nicer job of telling the story at hand; I suppose it's easier with the world-building and character introduction out of the way in book 1 to concentrate just on plot here in book 2. This series avoids the usual slump of the second book, which has to recover from book 1's climactic ending; I think this is a happy side-effect of the serialized structure. 




    The structure here is still quite episodic, but cleaner than in book 1; transitions are more skillfully executed, and the focus is easier to follow. The reading experience is more enjoyable as a result, and the reader is better able to engage with characters in their struggle to make sense of what's going on.




     There are two distinct stories going on here: the one on Earth's surface and the one that takes place in the space colony. While Clarke, Wells and Bellamy struggle to survive both the wilds of nature and their emotional natures on the surface, Glass and Luke are caught up in their own Romeo and Juliet- like drama in the colony. My favorite chapters were those that focused on Luke and Glass, though I certainly enjoyed the surprise twist in the Wells/Clarke/Bellamy dynamic. 




    I am really excited that this series has been translated to the small screen, and look forward to viewing those episodes while I wait for book 3. Things are really starting to cook with this plot, and I am really excited to see where it goes next.

    Day 21 
    by Kass Morgan
    Day 21 is an interesting addition to the background and history of the 100 television show.  I find that the divergence of character and plot to be enlightening. The book explains how many of the situations and circumstances with in the series are possible. 
    The aftermath of the attack by the grounders has left the camp of the 100 in disarray. The divergent reactions and responses range the gambit of emotions, to violence, to political compromise. Now some of the kids seem to be coming down with an unknown illness. Did they miscalculate the nature of the air and water is the Earth killing them.  
    Back on the Colony, things have taken a turn for the worst. They have lowered the bridge, and blocked interactions between the three stations. Glass has been separated from Luke. Weighing the needs of the few and the many is not an easy question when the few are those you love, and the many is the entire upper class Phoenix population.

    Once I finished reading The 100, I moved on to Day 21. I wasn't

    Once I finished reading The 100, I moved on to Day 21. I wasn't a fan of the first book, but having already requested the second one, I figured I would read it next to get it out of the way. Thankfully, Day 21 was a significant improvement over its predecessor. Going into the book knowing it focused a lot more on the romance then on the science fiction aspect helped a lot too, I suspect. :)

    A bunch of new characters are introduced in this one, some of them from the original hundred. I liked that we got to know more of them, but it felt like since the narrators were already semi-familiar with them, the reader never got a real introduction to them. It felt like some new names were just thrown in, and that left me feeling really confused for a while. I kept wondering if I should remember the characters from the first book, haha. But it was really nice to be introduced to more of the hundred, especially because I was hoping they'd be more likable than the main characters.

    Day 21 has the same structure as The 100, with three POVs on Earth and one on the Colony. While I still felt like this was too many, at least the reader knows the characters now, and in Day 21, we finally get some of the much-longed-for character development that was more or less absent in the first book, due to the fact that the reader gets very little time with each character. I still didn't really care for the main characters much, but it was still a pretty big improvement!

    In terms of world-building, there is a bit of an improvement versus what readers got in the first book, at least on Earth, though I will still disappointed on the "savage Earth" front. One entire section of the ship still remains unexplored, though, so that was pretty underwhelming.

    I honestly wasn't too enthralled with this book, but about 2/3 of the way through, things picked up quite a bit, to the point that I'm interested in checking out the third installment in the series at some point. I still haven't seen any of the TV show, but I'm considering it, since I've heard it's better than the books. Day 21 was, despite its faults, a solid improvement over The 100, and I am happy that I am looking forward to learning where it's all going in book three.

    I received a copy of the book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
