A thrilling post-apocalyptic adventure...
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.
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 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 . . .
Post apocalyptic England thriller
I liked this a lot.
There’s two storylines - one starts before the devastating events that cause end-of-society and takes you through it, and the main story line is a thriller set years after; although the two threads are obviously linked, it’s difficult to work out how they are actually linked - until the last few chapters. It’s keeps you guessing throughout - I liked that.
Non stop action, interesting romance, unexpected plot turns. Great to read the description of post-apocalyptic southern England.
If you like Terminator, Mad Max, Blade Runner, Hunger games, that sort of thing, then you will really enjoy this book.
Couldn't put down!!!
This book was amazing as always shalini captured my imagination for yet another one of her thrilling books the characters ha me captivated and I will be ready and waiting for the next book!!
A Great Read
This hooked me straight away. Firstly because the set up is so good and believable. I could imagine 'Perimeters' springing up everywhere, keeping the rich people separate from everyone else. I really liked Riley. she's vulnerable but has the gits to go outside to find her sister's killer. In fact all the characters are strong and some are downright terrifying. There's a wicked twist and a smart secondary story running along alternately with Riley's.
For me, Outside sits quite happily alongside The Hunger Games on my bookshelf.
