4.0 out of 5 stars Simple story with nice elements 28 Dec 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Cassia Tiponi is a twenty-year old student who needs to make some extra money to cover her tuition fees. She volunteers as a guinea pig and is subjected to a series of medical tests. She doesn't like it a lot, but she goes back several times as the pay is quite good.

One day, when she goes back, she is questioned and locked in a room as it turns out she has non-human DNA. As she was abandoned at birth she has no idea what her background is but she's being kept locked up as a criminal.

Unpleasant things happen to her and some good things too. Like the strong and handsome Keanu! Eventually Cassia learns more about her birth family.

The book was a quick and easy read. The writing was fluent but not very intricate. There was only the one storyline and chapters often ended with a bit of a weak "cliffhanger", which was totally unnecessary.

I felt like this book could be the first of a series as the ending had potential for a further story.

Wow.. I have read Inhuman last week and it still lingers with me. It is the kind of story that stays with you long after you have finished reading the book and put it back on the shelf. It is hard to find the words and do justice to the way Inhuman made me feel. Because isn't the ultimate goal of reading: to make us feel someway? Be it excitement, trepidation, thrill or joy, we read to experience these emotions. And Inhuman is certainly one novel which will take you on an extraordinary ride of emotional rollercoaster.

Inhuman is an emotionally unsettling, deep and moving novel. Danielle Lee's writing is exquisite. Through her narrator Cassia, the story flows freely and naturally, feeling more like a memoir with Cassia's honest and unguarded voice.

Cassia, Keanu and the other supporting characters are all interesting, well developed, flesh and blood characters. Cassia is a very sympathetic and reliable character the reader immediately identifies with her as she is such a typical, ordinary young girl. Her reactions and emotions are exactly as one would react were they in her shoes, and that is why the reader trusts Cassia's and her narration.

Though Inhuman is not a long novel, it is such a condensed, deep story that it packs more emotions and will elicit more reactions than most longer novels do.

The subtle philosophical/spiritual message is both unsettling and uplifting. Despite the gloomy and sad events in Inhuman, there is a beacon of hope that shines through and that elevates the novel from the dark despair it could fall down into.

Verdict: An extraordinary read that will definitely provoke some thoughts and reflections. Beware though that it is not an easy read, there are scenes/mentions of rape, torture, mental and emotional abuse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressed 31 Dec 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Considerring the cover and that it was free (so my expectations weren't exactly high) I was hooked, I read the book start to finish in about four hours - please do NOT allow this to deter you, I'm very much a speed reader (cover to cover on the thickest of the Harry Potter novels in less than 20 hours and that was with meal times and other breaks included).

It was all over a little faster than I would've liked, in fact I was rather upset when the story ended but that was because it was EXTREMELY well written and I have since read in excess of 30 books yet can remember this one in detail - quite the accomplishment.

The detail, narrative, plot and characters were very detailed yet not overly so. I was hooked and should there be any other work from this author I will be HAPPY to pay for it.

The ONLY reason for the 4 stars instead of the 5 is that apart from an oddly misleading cover, it was shorter than I would've liked (this did not however detract from the story itself which in no way felt rushed) I reccommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read and thought provoking 7 Mar 2011
By 1vicki1
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked this book it was different from many SF books and enjoyable.
The story was good throughout and it had an ending (not left open incase the author wants to relight it)
As it cost very little, I cant see what there is to complain about.
I will be looking out for more of her books in the future.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter Despair 28 Dec 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
*The following review may contain spoilers*

Inhuman is a short book that seems to want to make a point that never does. Or at least it does fairly early on and doesn't really elaborate. It's interesting to see what can be taken away when you are labelled "inhuman" but it seemed like the author could have made more of this point. Early we learn that Cassia's friend is suspicious of the government so when the explanation of what the men in black are it's almost a disappointment. I would have liked to see the reaction of a politician perhaps, seeing it all happen and letting it continue all because she's not human. Or maybe the reaction of Joe Bloggs in the street to someone inhuman. Instead all we have are the men in black or may as well be the boogy men.

Much of the book is set around Cassia's time in her prison cell of sorts. Yes she is treated badly but in my opinion not enough to warrant how much she goes on about it. When she is first taken in they take blood tissue and hair samples in a pretty brutal way but after this not much else happens. In fact I think Cassia is put under more experiments when she's being paid for it. Of course the worse that Cassia has to cope with is the repeated rape by one the agents where the author likes to skip details. Perhaps too much detail may lead the book in to too much despair so I'd understand if others disagree. However James Clemens has described such horrible scenes in his first God Slayer book and it worked to empathize with the the main character whilst furthering the horror of the man.

In "The Writer's Tale" Russel T Davies told how he usually skipped to the end when there was a dream sequence since he felt they never furthered the plot, after all there is nothing happening if the main characters asleep.
