There is so much of the same thing out there vampires and zombies and such. They are all so annoyingly shallow but when you try to read something with some semblance of meaning (besides the perils of a love triangle) its so complex it gets boring. Not so with the inferior it was action packed and dazzling. A world that not even I the imaginative one had ever thought to consider a world with cannabels(sorry if misspelled) Stopmouth isnt the perfect hero he doubts himself but there is a simple honesty to his character that makes you love him. Im rambling now and I dont want to give away the story. If you are looking for something fabulously diffrent and wonderfully written besides look no farther.

Stopmouth isn't the most respected hunter in the village, but he is the fastest. His speed makes him a valuable member of any hunting team because every team must come back with flesh. Lives depend on it. The consequences of a failed hunt don't just mean the possibility of starvation. In Stopmouth's world, if there isn't enough flesh, members of the Tribe must volunteer to sustain their neighbors. If there aren't enough volunteers, the Tribe leaders choose people for this "honor." Stopmouth lives in a brutal world. Life becomes very complicated for Stopmouth when a beautiful woman named Indrani comes into his life. She was piloting one of the Globes that fly through the sky when she was attacked by a fellow pilot and forced to crash in the village. Indrani speaks a different language and is feared by most people in the Tribe. Only Stopmouth gets to know her and attempts to communicate with her. After a great betrayal, Stopmouth is forced to run away and leave the home he's always known, forfeiting his membership in the Tribe. He takes Indrani with him and together they face many dangers on their journey to safety. Stopmouth learns a lot about his world and finds out things aren't what they seem at all. He is forced to make difficult decisions that affect him, Indrani, and his entire world. THE INFERIOR is a fascinating story. Stopmouth is a wonderful character and it is great to see him grow throughout the story. He goes from an insecure young boy to a respected and skilled leader. There could easily be a sequel to THE INFERIOR, but at the date of this post, there hasn't been any definitive word of one being planned.

This book had romance, was action-PACKED, and almost a mystery because you had so many questions about how things happened, why, how certain things the characters accept as true ever came to be... It takes a little bit of time to get used to the character's point of view, it doesn't take place in our modern-day world, or any past time period. It might be future, but that's all part of the mystery. You (and the main characters) have no idea. It's a really good read if you don't mind a bit of gore and a casual attitude towards death to feed yourself (that's what this whole book revolves around). But good luck looking for the sequel, I can't find mention of it ANYWHERE.

Survival of the fittest is understood by Stopmouth and his tribe either kill or be someone else¿s meal although his people expect him to be fodder because his stupidity makes them believe Stopmouth is inferior to them. Expediting his demise is his brother who betrays Stopmouth.------------ In this dangerous environs of the law of eat or be eaten, Indrani falls from the sky landing in the midst of Stopmouth¿s tribe. They debate what to do with the intruder as some want to trade her to those who relish fresh human meat. Stopmouth is attracted to her and wants to keep the beautiful intelligent woman who fell from the glowing Roof as his even though that violates the one commandment of eat or be eaten. Meanwhile she hides from her protector the truth of what she knows about the origins of her benefactor and his tribe and their prime reason for existence.----------- Avoiding a spoiler makes the review difficult to write as the key to the story line and the relationship between the lead pair is the knowledge that Indrani possesses although that takes quite a while before the obviously not so stupid Stopmouth figures it out. The action is fast-paced but not enough of it especially for the intended young teen audience as much of the plot is used to describe in too much detail the surface world. Still this homage to Tarzan in the Twilight Zone will engage the reader who will be appalled to learn the truth behind the connection between the Roof top intellects and the INFERIOR surface dwellers.----------- Harriet Klausner

Very different fantasy story for kids and adults. Fast-paced, fresh story that has wide appeal. I read this one last fall in Ireland and bought copies for Xmas gifts back in the USA. Can't wait for the second one to come out!
