Inside Out | [Maria V. Snyder]

Inside Out

"I drew a deep breath. I’d spoken more in one burst to this stranger whose room I’d invaded than anyone else in weeks. And with a single word he could alert the Pop Cops and send me to the Chomper. We stared at each other for a few heartbeats. Before I could retreat he said, 'My name’s Riley Narelle Ashon. Any time you need peace, you’re welcome to use my hideaway.'"

Publisher's Summary

“Imagine every space in this room filled with people, constantly being jostled and pushed. In the lower levels there is no quiet place. No peace. To a scrub, this room is paradise.

"I drew a deep breath. I’d spoken more in one burst to this stranger whose room I’d invaded than anyone else in weeks. And with a single word he could alert the Pop Cops and send me to the Chomper. We stared at each other for a few heartbeats.

"Before I could retreat, he said, 'My name’s Riley Narelle Ashon. Any time you need peace, you’re welcome to use my hideaway.'

Keep Your Head Down. Don’t Get Noticed. Or Else.

"I’m Trella. I’m a scrub. A nobody. One of thousands who work the lower levels, keeping Inside clean for the Uppers. I’ve got one friend, do my job, and try to avoid the Pop Cops. So what if I occasionally use the pipes to sneak around the Upper levels? Not like it’s all that dangerous - the only neck at risk is my own. Until I accidentally start a rebellion and become the go-to girl to lead a revolution.

"I should have just said no.…"

What the Critics Say

Inside Out surprised and touched me on so many levels--it’s a wonderful, thoughtful book full of vivid characters and a place--Inside--that is by turns alien and heartbreakingly familiar.” (Rachel Caine, New York Times best-selling author)

    "Interesting world"

    I like Ms. Snyder's other series (Poison Study, Glassblower, etc.) in which she creates a fairly complete world. So I thought I would try this one. It is targeted a little more towards a young adult audience, but is quite clever and kept me listening whenever I could. I like her character development and exploration of group dynamics.

    "Better than I expected -- by a long shot!"
    Where does Inside Out rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I was a bit skeptical of the plot line, and wasn't sure if i should get it. I really liked Amanda Ronconi's reading of the Jane Jameson series, and decided to give it a go. I am _really_ glad I did! This is one of the more enjoyable books I have listened to in the past several months.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was intriguing. A seemingly impossible world brought to life in a way that I believed it and kept wanting to hear what would happen next.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I bought this book primarily because I have liked Amanda Ronconi's narration of other books. This is right up there with the best of her stuff.

    I am a voracious reader (average about 4-5 Audible books a week, in addition to those I "eyeball".) I have been hooked on recorded books since the time of cassettes/CDs and was thrilled when I became an Audible member in 2007. I find reader reviews good guides to spending my credits, so have finally decided to write a few (although, I would rather be reading!)

    "Better than expected for dystopian YA fantasy"

    I am a big fan of Maria Snyder's adult fiction (particularly the Poison Study series), so decided to give this book a chance, despite not being an aficionado of dystopian fiction (well, with the exception of those works involving zombies -- I have a soft spot for the occasional zombie romp.) Also, it seems that most YA fantasy books nowadays seem to require a sappy love story (or triangle) interspersed in the plot, so, despite being a fan of Snyder's other work, I didn't start this book with high expectations.

    Snyder, though, does a good job of world building here and I became invested in learning what became of the characters, even though this novel wasn't non-stop action. I was glad I stuck it out until the end, though, as this was well plotted and although there was a love interest, it wasn't sappy.

    The narrator did a good job of delineating the different characters and her narration didn't distract from my enjoyment of the story.

    I love the vampire, shifter, Paranormal, sci-fi fantasy Books! Favorite Narrator is Amanda Ronconi and Favorite Authors are Rachel Vincent, Jeaniene Frost, Molly Harper, and now Suzanne Wright. If your in to the same Genre I highly recommend these Authors!

    "Worth the credit!"
    Any additional comments?

    I passed by this book many times while looking for other books. I finally decided that I love Amanda Ronconi and I should just try it. I am so glad I did! This is a great take on another world. It is unlike any book I've read and keeps you interested the whole book, before I knew it the book was over and it left me wanting more! I recommend trying it out. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    "Skip this one"
    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom. And no connection to the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Maria Snyder's other books and thought I would try out INSIDE OUT. I was mistaken. This book held no interest of mine and I didn't care about the characters. I kept hoping it would get better, as I am addicted to Ms. Snyder's other series, but alas - the book disappointed me even in the end. I would skip this read.

    "Cool idea."
    What did you love best about Inside Out?

    The concept of Inside Out. Not an entirely unrealistic look into the future.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Inside Out?

    The overcoming of the Pop Cops! And that jerk Carla. Ooo she made me mad.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yup. It is a great book. Can't wait to listen to book 2.

    "Awesome book!"
    Where does Inside Out rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I absolutely love Maria V Snyder. This book, though very different from her other series, was no exception. Even those who do not like sci-fi futuristic books will like this one!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like the protagonist the most. While there are plenty of other characters, the main character drives the novel.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This performance was well done. Amanda Ronconi does a great job of bring ing the book to life. I hate when narrators give teenage girls a "little girl" voice. Amanda Ronconi did not and it was much appreciated!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really.

    "The first book is great"
    What did you love best about Inside Out?

    There were some unexpected surprises that I wasn't able to guess ahead of time which I liked.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Riley because he is the only person in the book that ever makes jokes.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    The first book is definitely worth your time but unfortunately the second book in the series just drags on and on. I am assuming you don't want to begin a series without seeing it through until the end. I am continuing to listen because I want to know how it gets wrapped up but I have never been so bored listening to a story before. I listen to many dystopian YA books and this one is probably my least favorite. Well this series, the first book itself is very interesting but the second book is not exciting at all.

    I LOVE Maria Snyder and want her to write more books! All of her books have these different worlds with amazing stories. I get hooked on each book and cant put my headphones down. I have to limit myself on when I can listen or I would not get anything else done.
