Kurzbeschreibung

A post-apocalyptic romance thriller.

The world of the future is divided by Perimeters: high-security gated communities where life goes on as normal. If you’re inside you’re lucky, if you’re outside life expectancy takes a nose dive.

Sixteen-year-old Riley is fortunate to have been born on the right side of the fence. But her life of privilege comes crashing down when someone breaks through the Perimeter and murders her sister. She forsakes her own safety to go in search of the killer. Luc decides to go with her otherwise she’ll be dead before she’s past the security gate. But what awaits her outside is more unbelievable than she ever expected.

Cut to the present day where Eleanor's world is falling apart. This time next year, civilisation won't be quite so civilised . . .

Praise For OUTSIDE:

'I was completely shocked at how all the events unfolded at the end. I really did not see it coming ... If you like post-apocalyptic books, this story is for you.'
- Cynthia Shepp Book Reviews.

'Outside is written in a way that kept me flipping through the pages, biting my fingernails and that good old 'one more chapter' feeling was ever-present.'
- The Aussie Zombie.

'A post-apocalyptic road trip thriller with the accelerator firmly on the floor.'
- Faye Meredith, author of Becoming Edward

Suitable for adults and teens.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Outside" was a wonderful surprise! 7. Dezember 2011
Von Kammy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was such a wonderful surprise. I purchased this Kindle ebook edition off Amazon recently for only $2.99 and so was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be a great read. From the first page I could not put it down. The book was tagged as a "post-apocalyptic romance thriller," but it is so much more than that. This truly believable future world is divided by Perimeters: high-security gated communities for the privileged, where life goes on as normal. The strong female lead Riley, is a seventeen year old girl who was lucky enough to be born on the right side of the fence. But when someone breaks through the Perimeter and murders her younger sister Skye, she talks her seventeen-year-old neighbour Luc into helping her go in search of the killer. I was intrigued with Shalini Boland's unique writing style as she weaved a mysterious secondary storyline throughout Riley's first person account of the main story. There were lots of twists and turns and nonstop action and this book will keep you guessing right up to the last page. Finally mixed in with all the mystery and action is a wonderful tender young romance. This book ranks right up there with my all time favourite books. I give 'Outside' five big stars.*****

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fantastic read by a great writer 4. Dezember 2012
Von Rea200289 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As a lover of post-apocalyptic fiction, Outside by Shalini Boland appealed to me from the start. Add in that this is post-apocalyptic Britain, and I was hooked.

Outside is told from the perspective of two teenage girls, Ellie and Riley; Ellie lives in pre-civil war Britain, and Riley in a post-war time of gated communities and the dangers of `Outside'. While the civil war and the decline of civilisation is witnessed by Ellie in one time, Riley's younger sister is murdered by one of those who become uncivilised in another. Riley, along with her neighbour Luc, goes on a quest to try and find her sister's murder.

The story is both believable and engaging, the characters painted very well and the settings are terrifyingly believable. The story unfolds in ways that are both clever and subtle. I did not link the two narrating characters together initially, as the writer cleverly hides their connections, but towards the end of the novel the two timelines intertwine in a way that could not be predicted!

A fabulous book - well written, engaging and very `real', in a world where terror attacks and riots are becoming all too familiar. I will be eagerly anticipating the next installment in this series!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Why did I waste my money? 6. Januar 2012
Von Joni - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought Outside based on all of the great reviews and because it was only a few bucks. Sadly, It wasn't even worth that. To begin, I really liked the first 1/4 of the book. The beginning was creative, and really captured my interest. But as I read on I was disappointed. To summarize, the book just didn't go anywhere. Riley and Luc get into a mishap, rescue themselves, and then get into another mishap. There wasn't really a plot; it was like a bunch of mismatched adventures. And don't even get me started about the religious zealots.

But the worst part was the ending. The ending was ridiculous.I won't give anything away, but basically it made the whole book pointless. The ending didn't accomplish anything. Anyways, I did finish it, so it wasn't completely terrible, but I wish I didn't waste a few bucks.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great first book in the series! 14. Oktober 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I'm an admitted YA post-apocalyptic/dystopian addict and really enjoyed this book. The ending left me wanting to know more about what happens in and outside the Perimeters, so I'm anxiously awaiting the second one in the series.

3.0 von 5 Sternen It was okay. 10. April 2012
Von Janyaa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This was a decent book, I'd rate it 3 1/2 stars. It's one of those books that you blow through in one sitting and enjoy the ride while you're on it, but it doesn't necessarily stick with you afterwards.

Although I liked the characters, they didn't feel fully realized or fleshed out to me. Riley seemed inconsistent in her mannerisms. First she's strong and wants to go pursue her sister's killer, she manages to keep her wits about her and save herself and Luc from certain danger, and then she's breaking down and crying and feeling too overwhelmed.

Luc was a guy of few words, so it was hard to get a good read on him. He loves Riley enough to leave the perimeter with her, but then seems to get easily irritated with her and chooses to be cold and distant. Not only that, but it was very convenient that both of them were highly trained in weaponry and combat. While it makes sense that all kids would have that type of training, it doesn't get mentioned until they actually need the skills. Plus, it goes directly against the image that these kids have grown up in a pampered, privileged existence up until this point. If the author had found a way to incorporate that into the story before it was needed, it would have felt more authentic.

I did like how there were two storylines running from chapter to chapter, although at first I didn't catch on that it was two different perspectives because the tones were so similar. Yet, even with the backstory of Eleanor, I found that I couldn't have a lot of sympathty for what she'd done in the end. After all those years of being loved and building a life, I would have thought her choices would have been different. Or, at the very least, harder to make. She seemed to throw herself into her misdeeds so completely as to not feel any compunction about the pain she would be causing. It made me not like her very much, and I don't think that's entirely the reaction the author was trying to make.

The other thing I liked about this book was the world construction. I think things would probably happen very similarly to how the author envisioned them, especially at the beginning, during the transition period.

Overall, it's not a bad book and worthy of keeping you company on a rainy Sunday afternoon. I'll probably end up reading the sequels, but I don't have that eager, grinding anticipation in my gut waiting for the release date like so many other trilogies I've picked up recently.
