Author Lynda Engler sent me an e version of her book Into the Outside for reviewInto the Outside is a post apocalyptic story one of my very favorite genres Engler has written a new twist at least for me but then I don't get out much on the genre Without giving away the whole story the mutated descendants of the big war are presented as intelligent caring and peaceful people for the most part anyway A pretty refreshing way to tell a survivalist type story Into the Outside is a fairly short 160 some pages in my version although other sites list it as 276 pages hmm uick read Still the main characters are pretty well developed Like most entries in the genre the government is bad well they are usually responsible for the apocalypse in the first place but the real difference is between the two types of survivors; shelter dwellers and those who didn't have that luxury The negative for me and it is very very slight is the good guys are a little too good if you know what I mean almost Pollyana ish but again only slightly so That said there is stark reality hardship and tough choices to be made Into the Outside is at times heartbreaking uplifting and thought provoking It does make the reader think about post apocalyptic survival long term than many of its genre matesOh yeah Into the Outside is the first in a series it did end in a bit of a cliffhanger but not so much as to draw my cliffhanger ireInto the Outside by Lynda Engler is probably directed a little younger audience than other books of this genre but was still an enjoyable read for a cynical old coot like me If your in the mood for a thought provoking stark yet clean story with action adventure young love idealism and suspense; Into the Outside works well EnjoyMike

Into the Outside is a thought provoking YA post apocalyptic science fiction romance set in a world that projects vivid imagery and conveys powerful emotions that draws the reader in and rivets his attention Fifty years ago the Earth died The Earth is now a fertile but dangerous jungle world Wildlife has prospered although often in oddly altered forms Survivors live in underground shelters waiting generations for the environment to become safe enough to emerge Above ground the radiation and poison has mutated the few humans that are left but they do their best to survive for the 20 to 22 years they might live before the toxic planet or disease kills them16 year old Isabella has grown up believing mutants are sub human stupid and would eat every shelter person if they had the chance until she spies a wandering mutant tribe through the glass bottom sw. I was so looking forward to listening to this The reviews are all mostly positive so I dived in eagerly but oh my word the narrator was awful Maybe it was this fact that had me disliking the book too I don't know for sure The world is separated into two different factions as such the below ground dwellers who are waiting till the world is habitable again and the mutations people who live on the surface but have some form of mutation Isabella is a below ground dweller and has never been outside in her 16 years Her grandfather tells her that the mutants are dangerous not really human and would kill and eat you if they had the chance But Isabella is curious and when she sees some mutants swimming in a pool above their shelter don't ask me why they have a see through pool above them anyway she needs to investigate Night after night she puts on her grandfathers safety suit until she is caught by one of the mutants Malcolm She soon learns that he isn't like her grandfather said and she decides to leave with Malcolm and his tribe and step into the outside Sounds good right It kind of was but also wasn't Isabella was annoying at times and I couldn't connect with her She literally falls in love with the first guy she has every seen that wasn't related to her and is completely focused on him I really wish she would have experienced some of the outside first and then met Malcolm and fallen in love I think it would have made it real instead she wants to marry a boy she only just met and knows next to nothing about Plus she has no problem leaving her family behind she didn't realy hesitate It felt too unreal The overall plot was slow Not much happens for ages only Isabella fawning over Malcolm and I felt like giving up then but I kept listening because I had to give it a fair chance And while I finished it I really don't think I'll keep on with the series I didn't connect with the characters or care what happens to them unfortunately Now onto Carlo Libertini I rarely give a one star to any narrator because they put a lot of effort into their work but this narrator read the whole book as if he was reading it to a young child He read it in a happy uplifting tone the whole way through and it really really grated on my nerves and I had to speed up the narration to make it any bit bearable He made the story extra hard to get into or like I was given this free audiobook at my reuest and have voluntarily left this review This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts
