Title: Day 21
Author: Kass Morgan
Series: The Hundred #2
About: No one has set foot on Earth in centuries — until now.
It’s been 21 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.
My Thoughts: If you’re someone who’s been with Proud Book Nerd for a while, you know that I loved The 100. I was very eagerly anticipating the sequel — and the TV series. Unfortunately, the series I think worked against me in my enjoyment of this book.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed both — I’ll try to explain. The books and the TV show are quite different. While the premises and characters (names at least) are the same, there are some key differences between the two. Major plot points (like Clarke’s mom is still alive and on the ship in the show, and the Chancellor is not in a coma on TV but is alive and well) are different from one to the other. And they work between each other. It’s just that the last I was into this series, it was the TV version, so it was hard to reconcile what I was reading in the book to things I remembered according to the TV series, as opposed to the book. Now, I am very glad that the TV show and the novels can stand apart from each other. I think it works well that way. But I think it made it harder for me to get into the book like I had the first. If I had had a chance to reread the first before delving into this, I think I would’ve been much more into the book.
Still, I found Day 21 by Kass Morgan hard to put down. I wanted to see where things were going, how various scenarios were going to play out. Plus, I was excited to find out what’s going on with Glass and Luke, who are absent from the TV show.
Will I read this again? Quite possibly — especially once the series is completed (unless this ends up being one of those that goes on and on forever LOL). And I DEFINITELY will continue the series. Fortunately, the wait for Book 3, Homecoming, will be much shorter. It appears that’s scheduled for release in February!
