    One thought on “Inhuman”

    1. If love triangles where at least one of the dudes is an über-douche don’t bother you, you might be fine reading this book.I hate triangles. I frigging hate them. I want to kill all of them with fire. This is one of the ones that I’d like to kill slowly with fire. I’m not exaggerating when I say that Rafe, one of the love interests, ruined a lot of this book for me. More specifically, I should say that it was our MC, Lane, and her interest in him that ruined this book for me. The guy is an [...]

    2. UPDATE: Listen up, I'm fucking sick of dealing with trolls on this review. You do not need to inform me that I made the judgment on very little of the book. I'm aware of this, and I'm up front about that. I'm not going to change the review, no matter how often people troll me on it (often). Trolling comments will be summarily deleted. You want attention? Well, you're not getting it here. All trolls may kindly fuck off.Pages Read: 18, the first chapterReason I quit:All of the characters are idiot [...]

    3. See more book reviews on my blog.This book starts out by comparing a land full of virus-infected, bestial people to Africa. And then it manages to go downhill from there.There were so many problems with this book, they drowned out the good parts. The premise for this story was fairly good, if you can accept comic-book-science, and the plot line was exciting and engaging. It’ll keep readers interested, even readers like me who are busy rolling their eyes the whole time, so that’s actually imp [...]

    4. This was such a great story! Full of adventure, mystery, and surprises, Inhuman is a definite must read. Lane grew up in the West and, like most people under the age of 19, has never seen what is on the other side of the wall that separates them from the East. Having lived a relatively sheltered life in the West, she and her friends have only heard stories of the feral territory of the East where the Ferae virus, which turns humans into feral human-animal hybrids, is still very much active after [...]

    5. I DNFed this book at 50% and could not bring myself to read on. I was extremely confused by the world building, I really wanted to me immersed by the danger of a dystopian world plagued by mutant creatures, but how this world was presented in the book did not capture my attention. I felt that there was an excessive amount of time wasting right after Lane left the wall, and I was extremely bored by what follows afterward to the time she finally escaped from the soldiers.I truly found the idea of [...]

    7. Attention YA dystopian fans! Ready for a slightly different teen heroine in a slightly different dystopian society? Inhuman by Kat Falls was a VERY pleasant surprise for me! Sure, we have a teen girl, raised in a sheltered environment who has a germ fetish and an almost endless supply of hand sanitizer, but that’s all explained! We also have two handsome guys, one the definitely the damaged good guy, one the definitely damaged bad boy, both strong, brave and interested in Lane. The best part o [...]

    8. This review can also be found on Book ProbeActual rating: 3.5 starsInhuman by Kat Falls is a fast paced, action packed novel that will thrill many readers to come. I went into this book without any expectations at all however I was pleasantly surprised in the end.One of novel’s strongest points is its premise. From the very beginning, it immediately grabbed my attention and it certainly did not disappoint as the story progressed. The effects of mutation from the fictional, man-made virus were [...]

    9. I give 3.75 starsIf you don't read past 50% of this book then you really have not read this book at all because that's when the REAL action startsGGGGG this book would've totally been 4 stars if it didn't take so long for the plot to really begin, though I can see the desire in wanting to have a thorough foundation for the story. So let me get to the main pointCAN THERE BE TWO MORE PERFECT GUYS IN ONE STORY!? ANSWER: UHH-NOOOOOI can't even blame Lane for not making a conscious decision between t [...]

    10. Well, NetGalley is giving away ARCs of this one for free, so sure, why not? Sounds pretty crazy. Also is it just me, or does the cover look an awful lot like the Divergent covers?

    11. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to and Netgalley.)16-year-old Lane lives in a dystopian society, where beyond the boundary wall live people who are known as ‘feral’ – part-human, part-animal hybrids.When Lane is picked up for possibly being infected (having the disease that turns people feral), she soon learns that the reason is that her father has been going across the boundary to the old city of Chicago to bring back priceless a [...]

    12. DNFit went from this.Whatever the tiger-man was planning, I couldn’t tear my eyes from him. He was a fairy-tale creature come to life. Rings glinted on his fingers and diamonds sparkled in his ears. He was heavily muscled, with pale orange skin and luxuriant fur covering his chest and arms. The pictures I’d seen in Dr. Solis’s office had made it seem like the Ferae virus deformed its victims, but this man’s appearance was more alluring than horrifying.“Your kindness astounds me.”He c [...]

    13. I loved this book, which I got from my librarian as an ARC. The only thing I disliked was the ending, and the fact that she did not end up with the guy I wanted her to end up with. WHY I don't know. But it is only the first book, right? Things can changeThis is also the first book I've read by Kat Falls, and I am impressed with her storytelling. Her sentences are okay and all, but the whole story formed together really well.Things I liked:-There was a plot that actually moved and surprised me, o [...]

    14. Wow.Can we just talk about the characters for a minute? Because their relationships with each other and their dialogue had me laughing hysterically! Rafe is so snarky and hilarious that I was practically rolling. He’s been so hardened by his life in the Feral Zone that he has a sarcastic sense of humor and has toughened himself to survive at all costs, yet as the story progresses you learn more about his background and about how caring he can actually be.Then there’s Everson, the stoic line [...]

    15. I laughed out loud quite a few times in this book, but not in any way the author would have intended. The plot was right on the border between okay and ridiculous. A talented author could have salvaged it with a good story, but Kat Falls does not deliver. Her characters are flat and uninteresting. I can't be the only person out there who is sick of gorgeous characters running into countless other gorgeous people (even though it's the end of the world) especially when the supermodel-like girl mee [...]

    16. OMG!!! This is one of the best books I've ever read!!! Once I got into it (and that was almost immediately), I couldn't put it down. At times I yol (yelled out loud), col (cried out loud) and lmh (lost my heart) to the story. The book was exciting, heartwarming, full of surprises and wonderful characters. Thank you for the ARC through ' First Read Giveaway Kat Falls!

    17. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: Action-packed dystopian novel filled with great characters, sweet romance, and suspenseful moments. This is a must read for all YA Dystopian fans, it will not disappoint!Opening Sentence: Now that I was actually on the roof of the skyscraper, I was having second thoughts.The Review:It is the year 2026 in America and life as we know it no longer exists. 18 years ago there was a virus unleashed that killed millions and left many more mutated w [...]

    18. 4.5 starsInhuman by Kat Falls is one of the craziest books for content I’ve read in a long time. But in a good way. For me, it held flavours of Under the Never Sky blended with a twisted Wizard of Oz vibe blended with Alice in Wonderland yet still managed to remain itself, and that somehow gave it a uniqueness, allowing it to stand out in its own right, and making it a very enjoyable read.The MC, Lane, is a strong character for leading this whacky tale. Her development shows her strengths comi [...]

    19. I'm not even going to try with this one. After barely finishing the first chapter, I can tell that I will hate all the characters, it's a racist piece of crap that should burn and wellI'm too lazy to get into another uncreative dystopian.

    20. This review and others are posted at Inspiring Insomnia.This is my third round of "Fun With Limericks," a (hopefully) fun way of dealing with books I didn't finish, or I finished, but for whatever reason, I felt I could not write a proper review.Today, I bring you a limerick for Inhuman by Kat Falls. I actually did finish this book, even though the experience was quite unpleasant. It was easy to forget that this is a novel with a post-apocalyptic setting, because the protagonist seemed less conc [...]

    21. I will love this forever and ever because it takes place in my hometown: even though not all the details are totally perfect, it's still cool to have your hometown name-checked as a partially civilized fortification in a post-apocalyptic horrorscape overrun by human/animal hybrids. I mean, come on! So cool. But don't be confused by my unabashed love for it - it really, really sucks. That Divergent-y cover is not an accident: this is clearly a cash grab by a publisher (and author) that know "any [...]

    22. Despite a clunky beginning, this story held true to my expectations; it gave me a rollicking adventure with a new outlook for a dystopian novel. I'd enjoyed Kat Falls storytelling with Dark Life and Rip Tide, and Inhuman was terrific storytelling, too. I didn't like the obvious background knowledge that was just plopped in the reader's lap in the beginning as I wanted to be teased into the storyline. However, once I was there, I couldn't let go.Delaney Park, so named for a now off-limits city, i [...]

    23. (I received a copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review) The premise to Inhuman was quite an interesting and original idea.I really liked how the author made a dystopia / apocalyptic with human/animal hybrids instead of zombies.Unfortunately though, the story didn't live up to my expectations.The pacing was slow through the majority of the book, and i found my self bored quite often.At times, i found Lane quite stupid. After an encounter with a feral hybrid, where she was left uncons [...]

    25. When I heard of this I knew Id read it because it sounds so different. Lane lives behind the wall. She has heard the tales of the East. She has heard about the Feral Zones and like everyone else, to her its just a story. She knows the history of why the wall was there but it still doesn't prepare her for whats outside. The Fereae virus has decimated the world. It caused animals to go feral and turns people into savage animals, literally! The wall in the West was built, by the same company who cr [...]

    26. The world has been decimated by a deadly virus. At first the virus killed you quickly, then it mutated into something else. Now if you get the virus you may mutate into an animal and become savage or you might just die. The East has been cut off because of the virus. A giant wall divides the US at the Mississippi River. No one in the West is allowed to cross over into the East and no one in the East is allowed in the West. Delaney Park lives in the West with her father. She has a privileged life [...]

    27. It Would be Inhuman to Deny Your Teen Reader This Book Anyone who read Kat Falls' previous 2 novels, Dark Life and Rip Tide, will not be surprised to learn that I raced through her new book, Inhuman.Inhuman describes a world in which a virus, Ferae, has changed human society. Those who don't carry the virus live in the West behind a wall and live in constant fear of contracting Ferae, and for good reason. Ferae causes its victims to genetically mutate, and eventually become more animal than huma [...]
