Inside Out (Insiders #1)
Keep Your Head Down.
Don't Get Noticed.
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? The only neck at risk is my own…until I accidentally start a rebellion and be...more
More lists with this book...
I'm not going to say much, because it's not really a book you can review in detail without giving much away.
Maria Snyder creates an intricate world which is so easy to get caught up in. I must admit, it confused the heck out of me at first and on several occasions I considered setting the book aside, but I'm so glad I didn't. I needed to do a few 'read-then-re-read's of sentences to make sure what I was reading made sense, but after you catch o...more

My rating would possibly be higher, but the fact that I've read The Hunger Games this year is keeping me from liking this book any more. Comparing the two is unavoidable.
Suzanne Collins said she was watching a reality show on one channel and footage of the Iraq war on the other when she got the idea for The Hunger Games. I'll take a wild guess and say that Snyder got the idea for Inside Out while watching that great National Geographic special about the Berlin Wall. :)
Because she doesn’t connect.
But the chance to find Gateway. The chance to escape the Inside.
THAT is a challenge Trella can’t turn down.
A challenge that matters to everyone on the Inside. Enough for people to risk their lives. The workers in the...more
Because of all of the amazing dystopian books that are available, this one needed to be amazing to really stand out in such a large market. And while I enjoyed it, it kind of fell flat. The premise was good and ove...more
Inside is an intriguing place. Divided into four levels, it is the home of the uppers and lowers, also called scrubs, and a wonder of modern technology. Especially the scrubs suffer from shortage of space and the constant presence of the Pop Cops, who ensure that everything runs smoothly and according to the Controller’s orders.
Trella is a scrub...more
Inside Out was so good, I could not stop reading it. Ms. Snyder simply picks up the reader and drops him or her right into a new world. Usually, when you read one of her books, it takes you awhile to figure out what the heck is going on. What time era is this? What technology are they talking about...more
I really loved this book! Everyone who enjoys sci-fi or dystopian will definitly enjoy this book too. Read it! :D
summary: horrible book
This book was atrocious and was the first book I've read by Maria V. Snyder I have since given her several more opportunities to "wow" me or show me what kind of writing she is capable of and each time it has been quite disappointing.
'Inside-Out' is another typical young adult dystopic, novel where the main character for some reason can change/save the world and of course has a love interest blah, blah, blah the list goes on.
The main character I found VERY ha...more
Jeg tror dette må være noen av de mest spennende bøkene jeg har lest. Det var slik at jeg hadde ly...more
It's hard to say much about this one that isn't a spoiler. Inside Out is a dystopian story with a science fiction twist. There were many things that were similar to several other dystopian books I've read recently, it helped to remind myself that this one was written prior to those book...more
Trella is a scrub - but she's not your average scrub. She has one friend and prefers to spend her time in the pipes rather than with the overcrowded living quarters of the other scrubs. They're forced to clean the Inside for the Uppers. Trella doesn't know much about the world, but when her friend comes to her and says there's someone who wants to meet her, she's suspicious.
What she discovers is something she never imagined. Unknowingly, she starts...more
Inside there are three types of people, the Scrubs who do all the hard and dirty work, the Uppers and the Pop Cops who enforce the rules. Trella is queen of the pipes and as a Scrub has learnt than she should keep her head down and avoid trouble and the Pop Cops. Her only friend Cogon asks her to talk to a new prophet, The Broken Man, who says he has info about the gateway to Outside, hidden in the pipes. Trella fol...more
Trella, Riley and Cog are great characters and I enjoyed learning the differences between the Uppers and the Scrubs right along with t...more
Trella, otherwise known as the Queen of the Pipes, is a scrub who lives in the lower levels. It's her job to clean the pipes and ensure Inside stays clean and rust-free. She deliberate...more
INSIDE OUT is the perfect example (at least for me anyway) of why you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. This cover didn’t do anything for me, in fact I thought the cover model looked like Miley Cyrus which really didn’t do anything for me. Once again my shallowness almost had me missing out on an excellent book.
In a sentence, INSIDE OUT is 1984 meets The Hunger Games. And if you’ve been living under a rock somewhere and haven’t read The Hu...more
Trella is an interesting character. It was interesting watching her change, in the way that she thinks, behaves, and speaks from the beginning of the novel to the end. We see her go from uncaring and unsociable to a very caring and responsible person, who happens to want to create a better wo...more
Wow! This book surprised me so much. I am so freaking speechless after I read it. Maybe because I am not expecting that ending to be that way. I still can’t figure out if I love the ending or if it frustrated me but nonetheless this story is brilliant.
I love Trella’s character; she is a-ma-zing! I really love how cool she is and her character is admirable. She can go inside the pipes and know places that she alone knew. She is so strong and courageous. Although she is stubborn...more
In this world where everyone lives "inside", the society is split between Uppers (living a rather...more
Okay, so I first heard that this book was not that good. When that happens, I tend to have less expectations or expect it to be boring at least. So maybe its because I was expecting it to be bad, or maybe because I just love anything dystopian, but I really, really enjoyed this book. I've been thinking for a while how to put my thoughts into words, because I feel I liked all the aspects except the romance part. And that never happens! Or shouldn't happen at least. I will try to explain this as b...more
