Inside Out; Maria Snyder



ARC



  • Reading level: Young Adult
  • Publisher: Harlequin; Original edition (April 1, 2010)





Synopsis

I'm Trella. I'm a scrub. One of thousands who work in the lower levels, keeping Inside clean for the Uppers. I do my job and try to avoid the Pop Cops. The Trava family who rules our world from their spacious Upper levels wants us to be docile and obedient, like sheep. To insure we behave, they send the Pop Cops to police us.

So what if I occasionally use the pipes to sneak around the Upper levels? Not like it's allthat dangerous--the only neck at risk is my own.

Until a lower level prophet claims a Gateway to Outside exists. And guess who he wants to steal into the Upper levels to get the proof? You’re right. Me. I alone know every single duct, pipe, corridor, shortcut, hole and ladder of Inside. It’s suicide plain and simple. But guess who can’t let a challenge like that go unanswered? Right again. Me.

I should have just said no...

My Review

I really felt like I was missing out after reading all these fantastic reviews about how wonderful Inside Out is. I had this sitting on my shelf and I just couldn't put it out of my head anymore. I was not disappointed. It really lived up to the hype. What a wonderful thing you bloggers are. Trella fit like a glove as the main character. She was almost selfish while finding the true her. So many dimensions in this book. I also enjoyed that the love in the book took a little bit of a backstage to the plot. I loved Cog.  I really felt the loss with him.

   The excitement never ended. It actually had some real and extreme moments. Nothing that was gruesome or that had me want to put the book down. I probably could talk wildly about this for days. I thoroughly enjoyed this.  I LOVE Maria Snyder's writing.

Nice review!
I do want to have a look at this book but Studies 2 and 3 disappointed me so much that I do not dare to

Wow. I gotta read this.

BTW, I'm totally digging your reviews. They feel shorter and more succinct since your return and I honestly dig it. They really rock.

I've been wondering if it was as good too. However, your review has changed my mind. I want to try this one.
