A critically acclaimed, award-winning author, Alix Ohlin pens a masterpiece of emotional complexity with Inside. In this literary tour de force, a therapist named Grace attempts to help a man recover from his failed suicide attempt. Meanwhile, Grace's teen patient Annie runs away from home to reinvent herself in New York, and Grace's ex-husband leaves the comfort of a successful relationship to attempt to help native peoples in the bleak Arctic.

    " I loved this book. I felt so connected to the characters that I actually missed them when I was finished reading it. Very interesting book that gets you thinking. "

    " Wow. In the middle of it, I was crying, from contemplating all the ways people and life hurt and damage each other, the cycle, or maybe spiral, never ending. Tug, experiencing the horrifying things people did to their friends, neighbors, family, being damaged beyond repair, causing his own damage, of a less horrifying but still life-changing nature. Annie's parents failing her over and over, creating a wary person lacking a center. Mitch just muddling through his life, failing and injuring and unable to have a satisfying life. Grace never really getting past the struggling stage. It may not be the most subtle book, or the most complex, but what it contained felt real to me. "

    " I enjoyed it. It asks a very I interesting question, can anyone really help anyone else if they don't really want to be helped? I think it's a smart and touching novel and would make a great book club selection. Great one for discussion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Careyleah | 2/14/2014

    " Characters are clear, sharp; love how she repeats their appearances in different times/spaces... "

    " I just could not get myself to care about any of these characters. The therapists displayed no sense of boundaries. Everyone just came across and shallow, self-absorbed and frankly, pathetic. "

    " Okay, I wanted to like this book - it was about a therapist, so it should have been right up my alley. But I got about 1/3 into it and I just thought, "This book is not doing anything for me, why am I wasting my time waiting for this to get better?" So, I stopped. It started out well enough - therapist skiing, stumbles across a man trying to kill himself, she stops him takes him home, starts "therapizing." Then things shift to her guilt about her life and the reader loses track of the man and the intricacy of that relationship and moves into "when I was young I did something I have a lot of guilt for therefore I shall moan about it forever." Urgh. So, it could have gotten better, I don't know. But for me, it wasn't better fast enough. "

    " Characters are fascinating and the story is full of lovely details but the ending is less than satisfactory. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 12/9/2013

    " It was okay, but I didn't bother to finish it. I know why would I rate it a 3 then? Well I think other people will like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren Markon | 12/8/2013

    " Interesting but odd...Ended poorly "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 6/3/2013

    " just a peek inside the lives of others, very well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy Sansom | 3/26/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. It is a bit different but delves into the mind of several people and why they do the things they do. I haven't talked to anyone else who has read this but I would recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Niki | 2/4/2013

    " Entertaining. It had so much potential but fell a bit flat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 11/13/2012

    " I found it hard to love this book. Most of the characters were completely unlikable and I dreaded reading the chapters that involved them. The idea of the book was interesting and the way the stories and characters were linked together I liked. I think this book is definitely overrated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aben | 10/13/2012

    " The book is soft and subtle with its knives, but they cut just as deep. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 gwen | 8/22/2012

    " I usually love it when authors use different sections and times to play with interconnected characters -- in this case, four Canadians who are all therapists and/or varying levels of screwed up -- but all these people felt unrealistic, and the whole thing left me cold. "
