It was an instant hook, from the summary to the first chapter... I love trying to guess what might happen next, and all the twists and turns already in only the first chapter! The imagery was on point, the originality was check plus...livelaughanimals : The book had me hooked from the get-go... Overall, this book was definitely deserving of the Wattys Award. The imagery is AMAZING, and the plot and word choice is very polished. This is definitely a must-read!Wolfsbane753 : No other book can compare. I may be a boy, but this book about mermaids has gotten me completely hooked. I read this book start to finish, never stopping once... You had an amazing plot, with a wonderful array of characters. When you added the magic, I just couldnt stop reading...zeinabdel : It is really interesting and well written... As for the story itself, the plot is very original and different than the other stories we see which makes it very interesting to read.starry_dreams_ : its enthralling and well written, with a mysterious touch that leaves me wanting more.Harmony_Sea : Its amazing Ive read it so many times and cant stop reading it!ashlynnhigginson : Its very unique and always keeps you guessing. Each chapter gets readers asking for more. The storyline is unlike anything Ive read before, filled with magic, mermaids, and a futuristic setting. I think it is probably one of the most creative stories Ive read on Wattpad! :)EmanAlAdl : This book is my new favourite, with no doubt... the book content is decent unlike most of the books on this site. It also proves how a 16 year old girl can possess such a determined and an independent personality which is striking the image of the girl being weak that is spread by media. This book deserves all the support and success....AND SO MANY MORE!"The One-Hundred" was an instant hit, reaching about one thousand reads on just the introduction within a short amount of time. As chapters were added on, the reads grew and grew--and its reaching over EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND reads today, growing rapidly.So jump head-first into the mystery of the unknown, and read something like youve never read before.
