The Outs
The Outs - E.S. Wesley

During the Outs, strange things happen. But it doesn't seem to matter no one can remember what happened afterwards as everything gets a reset at the end of them. However, things must be changing as Caleb realizes he's kidnapped a little girl during the last episode of the Outs.

This was such a confusing read. A little bit of that was of course to be expected when memory stealing black-outs are taking place, but even then it was too confusing. I never got a clear idea as to what happened during the Outs, and strangely I thought the 'bringing everyone who died back from the dead when the Outs end' felt a bit like cheating. It creates a world (together with some other things that I won't mention so not to spoil) in which anything can be explained so easily, it becomes very plot-convenient.

More than Caleb, Kitzi was a very interesting character. As Caleb's only friend she tries to keep him safe, but she also has a secret of her own. Also, something is wrong with Amanda, the little girl who's kidnapped.

Will it make an easy read? That depends on how much you want to be able to follow the book. For quite some time I'd no real idea of what I was reading, but I have to admit that it was a very compelling read and I wanted to know how it would end. It was definitely not your everyday read, so for who likes those, I would recommend The Outs.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

I seem to have skipped a few weeks! Things have been a bit strange around here, due to a combination of general life peculiarities. I think normality meter is starting to flatten out. I hope!

 

Outside it's turning into the moors of Wuthering Heights around here! Which suits me just fine... I love a bit of wild and spooky weather, even if it means power outages and flickering internet connections.. 

 

Anyway, Books!
