Incarceron is a prison so vast that it contains not only cells, but also metal forests, dilapidated cities, and vast wilderness. Finn, a 17-year-old prisoner, has no memory of his childhood and is sure that he came from Outside Incarceron. Very few prisoners believe that there is an Outside, however, which makes escape seems impossible.

I wasn't sure what to think of this book. It was well thought out and well written for such a difficult setting. Has some good twist and turns, a few predictable and a few not so. I think it is well worth the time and money to get.

The narrator was not very good. I still muddled through and found the story ok for most of it, then strange by the end. The story line was rough and didn't seem to have a clear direction. I would only recommend this if you didn't have to pay for it in any way.

I thought this book was great. I really can't say enough about this book. I laughed so hard. It had a great story line and the writing was well done. The Narrator also was great. It is clean, fun and enjoyable. Great for mom's as well as kids.
