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

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
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.

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
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
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
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
InsideOut was just kind of dumb. I spent the whole book annoyed because there is no explanation for anything, it's all very random, and the main character is pretty hateable.
The whole centiweek system is distracting and unnecessary. The scary villains are actually not that scary. The big relationship plot twist is visible from miles and miles away. The "shift rotation" stuff made no sense - and it was like, she was working, she didn't work, sh ...more
From the off with this book I was instantly reminded of Wool by Hugh Howie; an amazing book about a population living in a silo. The similarity in plot lines may have tinted some of my preconceptions about the book but my general opinion not so much.
To cut a long story short, it was pretty much everything I don't like in a YA book - the main characters were annoyingly self righteous, there was an unwanted predictable romance, and talking about predictable, the whole story was ob ...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
