Found this a good book. Liked the contrast between the Pod and Outside. Wonder what my kids would do without all their tech gadgets. I imagine they would be much like Aria. Disoriented at first, then coping as best they could. I'm looking forward to reading the next book!

I loved this book so much. And how the author expressed her conflicted emotions... she's supposed to be afraid of him and run, but he knows how to the survive the Outside, and she doesn't. Even though she doesn't want to admit it she needs him and soon some feelings about him start to change and she confuses herself. I love how they end up falling in love! <3!!!

I read this book in just 2 days. It was truly fantastic that I just couldn't put it down. The way that the author describes Aria and Perry, that would always make me get goosebumps. They couldn't stand each other and at the end they are like in love and I found that so adorable.I found this story really enjoyable and I would recommend it to anyone to read :)

Wow, I was really blown away by Under the Never Sky! It's everything I could want in a Young Adult Scifi/Fantasy story. The virtual reality of the world Aria lives in is both intriguing and terrifying. Everything Aria knows as reality is entirely false and she is thrown out in the world she thought had been left behind. Instead, people have survived the intense change the earth has gone through. These so called "savages" are trying to eke out a living amid severe weather storms caused by the Aether. The descriptions of the Aether (a different sort of sky) are some of the most beautiful I've read in a while.

The characters we meet in the outside world are compelling. Perry, Roar and Cinder give this story an immense depth. The human race has mutated and developed gifts such as supersonic hearing, perfect night vision and the ability to read others' emotions.

There is something for everyone in this novel. Love, battles, laughter, grief and as is the case with dystopias, lingering questions on how our society and race are evolving.

I'm looking forward to the sequel with unabashed anticipation. Through the Ever Night comes out in early 2013!

Once I got into the book, I LOVED it. It was a refreshing take on a dystopian young adult novel. A 17 year old girl is cast out from the safety of the "pods" her people retreated to after experiencing storms that killed people. The pod people create virtual realities to take the place of "out of the pod" experiences. She is saved by a "savage" who becomes an ally, then someone she understands and learns from and respects. They each help one another in their quests to help a loved one.

This read will stand out among the numerous options in this genre since it has a unique twist of Outsiders possessing Senses that render them to each other. Dwellers who reside within pods are conducting experiments to extend their lives seeking the solution through "stolen" Outsiders. All the while an odd Aether atmosphere violently attacks both societies. Aria and Perry find a undying love amidst it all.
