Reviews of Inner City by Scott Norton Taylor

The book started a bit slowly discussing life in the city, and introducing us to Callen. But as the plot developed I got to understand the deeper implications of the interactions with the city and the world beyond the borders. This was not a boring story, I could not have anticipated the ending.

The story starts off with the main character, Callen, as a 7 year old. He lives in a walled city where stories about the world outside the walls are so bad that no one from the city wants to leave. Callen, as a child, is being attacked by an older boy and as he runs, he discovers a tunnel to the outside. He is injured and is briefly taken care of by the Outlocked, the name given to the people who live outside the walls. He then is returned to the city where he is told that it was all a dream. While Callen is attending the University, he decides to see if it was all a dream or for real. The author really grabbed a hold of me and made Callen a character that I cared about. The writing was well done and I thought that the ending of the book was beautifully done. I can't wait to read some of Mr. Northon's other works... if they are as good as "Inner-City," then I will definitely enjoy the ride.

I really liked this one. The story really hooked me and it was easy to feel this could happen. It is set in the future but the science fiction aspect isn't overwhelming. Young Callen discovers a world different to the one he's been taught about and he's not a person to simply accept like everyone else. I liked how the world outside the city was so simple and in tune with nature. It was more adventure romance than science fiction. And the love affair between Callen and Eve was cool. Not too much, but really nicely handled and emotional. This is well written and a really good story. Thanks. More please!

Inner City starts out with Callen in his own seemingly small world that expands enough to make him question everything he knew as truth. From the first page, the author's prose style captured and held my interest while creating a believable fictional world (that could very well be our own one day). This was an enjoyable read although the pacing towards the middle did slow down a bit. It picked back up during the last third of the book in which the suspense, drama, and climax all led to a satisfying ending.
