This is one of my top ten favourite books of all time and I haven't even read the second or third book yet so that's saying a lot. You know those books that haunt you long after you've finished reading? That's the kind of writing you'll find in Dark Inside. Days later I am still thinking about the story, the character and the unbelievable dark world the author has created. There is something so realistic about this novel. It compares to our world in so many ways.
There is an earthquake. A crack in the world. Darkness escapes and engulfs all of humanity, awakening the most evil of things buried inside us since we first came into existence. The story is told from several different characters who are trying to survive this new world and fight the evil inside them. It is easy for some and damn near impossible for others. Main characters can be villains and villains can turn out to be the saviour of humanity. Clementine is definitely my favourite of all the characters. She's on a one woman mission to find her brother and she will die trying if she has to. I love her strength through everything that she has been through. I love zombie books and even though the people aren't zombies they are crazy, murderous and evil.
Dark Inside grips you from the first page and pulls you unwillingly into a monstrous world that compares to ours in so many dark and twisted ways. I usually find books that feature multiple POV of different characters extremely annoying, but the author does it so beautifully in Dark Inside that it isn't annoying at all. I have already purchased the second and third book and will be binge reading them for the next couple weeks. This books is a cross between The Crazies and Darkest Minds...kind of.
Rating - I rate this book a 5 out of 5. If you love apocalyptic books like Darkest Minds and zombies, this book is for you. Highly Addictive.
