Inside The Outside

By the time Timber Marlow is fifteen years old, she has already killed three men. Despite the bloody and violent nature of their deaths, Timber is hardly a murderer, at least not in the traditional sense. She has lived her entire life as a cannibal within a cult tucked away in the San Bernardino Mountains called the Divinity of Feminine Reproach. The Divinity keeps itself isolated from the Outside, which is the mainstream society beyond its invisible borders. When the opportunity presents itself, Timber escapes into the Outside, bearing witness to some dark and unsettling truths about the world around her and the integral role she plays in it. But no matter how long she stays away, Timber finds out the past isn't as far away as she thinks it is. In this debut novel, laced with scenes of horrific violence and uplifting humanity, Martin Lastrapes has written a one-of-a-kind story about love, friendship, sacrifice and cannibalism.
Thanks to Martin Lastrapes for the honor to review this book for him. Also for writing it. I must say this is well deserving of 5 stars. Totally over and beyond what I usually read. LOVED LOVED LOVED it! AMAZING!
When you think about cannibalism, might gross you out but don't let that keep you from reading INSIDE THE OUTSIDE! Very well written. I never got bored or uninterested. I wanted it to keep going. I was sad when I was done reading it, not because the way it ended because I didn't want it to end. 

I totally loved this book. It was hard to read at times imaging what was laid out about cannibalism. Made me cry and laugh. I am not quite sure how to review this book with out giving spoilers. I want more, more of the same twisted story but also more of Martin Lastrapes amazing imagination and his talented writing. The way he can lay a story out I am in awe of. I recommend this read to any adult reader that doesn't have a weak stomach and enjoys a good warped, distorted story.
