Book Review: Day 21

DAY 21 (The 100 #2) by Kass Morgan
3 Stars
Verdict: It's okay.
#1 - The 100
#3 - The Homecoming

Oops, I forgot to write a proper review for this one when I read it last December, so this might be a bit short.

In truth, I read it quickly and moved on. Nothing really stood out, good or bad, that I haven’t already said for book one.

It’s an easy read and it's written in a straightforward manner… plus with further explanations to make sure you really get the point. From that, I gather this is aimed at the younger side of the young adult spectrum, so maybe it lost me a little there.

I enjoyed the unravelling of the characters’ pasts alongside where are they now. It's not a style I usually enjoy, but Morgan does it well.

I think the ending got to me the most. It’s anticlimactic, and once after watching the TV series, I expected depth, grit, and shocking twists, and instead it was easy, simple, and – how dare it – happy. In the end, I just expected to feel more from it.
