DNF The 100: Kass Morgan

"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.

Hello Fellow Readers,

Usually if I don't finish a book I don't post a review, however in this case I read more than I normally did. I tried, I really did try, but I just could not get into it. Reading over half of the book and I just did not like the characters, nothing really happened at all and ultimately I just started not to care. This book put me in a huge reading slump too! I didn't want to start another book on the off chance that I will finish this one, but I decided to just drop it off at the library ad pick up one other.

One of the reasons I think I couldn't get into this book is because most of the stories are told in flashbacks, while I was more interested in the present, ultimately I just started skimming the flashbacks. Plus, a took such a long time for anything to truly happen, I literally yawned with how boring it all was. The characters were just not my cup of tea and while I did like Clarke sometimes, having one okay character is not a book saver. Half the time I got a headache over how  frustrating everything made me.

Since this was made into a series on the CW, it must have been a popular book, people must have liked it and I think that's why I kept reading because I thought maybe I'm missing something.  Alas, I don't think I did, I was really excited to read this but maybe I just overhyped the book. If you read the book and did like it let me know why, I am interested to see your point of view.
