I don’t know how to feel about this. On one hand, I liked it. On the other… something about it bothered me. The very beginning, and the conclusion left me miffed, but the heart of the novel, when Malila is in the outlands, was the exact opposite.
I just did not like the non-outland parts at all. And it’s not because of any reason that I can coherently describe. It’s more like a feeling in the pit of my mind nagging, pulling on my attention saying: “Hey, this should be more fun.”
Overall, I’d say my time reading Outland was not time wasted, but neither time well spent. 3/5
As of January 19th, 2016, I am reading a post-apocalyptic novel by W. Clark Boutwell titled Outland Exile Book 1 of Old Men and Infidels.
I received this book for free through Goodreads Firstreads.
