"Boys are being trained at one school for geniuses, girls at another. And neither knows the other exists--until now. The innovative author of Bird Box invites you into a tantalizing world of secrets and lies. J is a student at a school deep in a forest far away from the rest of the world. J is one of only twenty-six students, who think of their enigmatic school's founder as their father. His fellow peers are the only family J has ever had. The students are being trained to be prodigies of art, science, and athletics, and their life at the school is all they know--and all they are allowed to know. But J is beginning to suspect that there is something out there, beyond the pines, that the founder does not want him to see, and he's beginning to ask questions. What is the real purpose of this place? Why can the students never leave? And what secrets is their father hiding from them? Meanwhile, on the other side of the forest, in a school very much like J's, a girl named K is asking the same questions. J has never seen a girl, and K has never seen a boy. As K and J work to investigate the secrets of their two strange schools, they come to discover something even more mysterious: each other"--… (lisätietoja)

Oh, well. The Bird Box was fabulous and still keeps the bar pretty high for everything else Malerman. And I keep on getting slightly dissappointed. The idea is great in Inspection, but somehow the story didn't really ignite. The kids were too young and the focus was always a bit off the mark for me, I would have seen the spotlight elsewhere. I'll keep on trying nonetheless. ( )

I love this audiobook. It was a slow simmer at first, but man when it gets going it’s amazing! The characters were singular, the storyline fresh and creepy a.f., and I literally couldn’t put the book down. I loved the audiobook so much, I listened to it twice! The Inspections themselves seriously creeped me out, way beyond anything else I’ve read this year alone.
The only issues I’d had with this novel was brought up by a friend of mine, Karyl. With that many children involved, there had to have been at least one of them that was LGBTQ , don’t you think? Same-sex and individual exploration would have happened. There is no way to stop this, no matter how you sequester, or “train” children. But maybe he just we all taught that masterbation was a sin, who knows.

Michael Crouch And Brittany Pressley were the narrators, and they were brilliant. I’ve no idea if they have been used before, but I’m going to try and keep my eye on these two names.
4.5 stars, and recommended. ( )

INSPECTION is a wildly imaginative and thought-provoking tale!

What would happen if boys were raised without any knowledge of the opposite sex? That's the basic premise behind this book, (there's more to it, but I won't get spoiler-y.) Just think about that for a minute, think about what would be involved. How to explain where the boys came from, for instance? How to explain puberty and changes to the body? The answer to those questions and more is easy. You LIE. And what happens when those lies are discovered? You'll have to read INSPECTION to find out!

I've never read a story quite like this before. That's a good thing. Josh Malerman's work may not always work 100% for me, but at this point, I know that I can always count on him for an original tale.

There were a few moments when the narrative took a completely different direction, the first one worked for me and worked well. But the second one? Not so much. I didn't think that much of a change was totally believable and I deducted one star for that. Don't get me wrong: I did enjoy the denouement, but I don't think it will work for everyone.

I had a LOT of fun reading this and stayed up way too late last night to finish it. When I'm willing to sacrifice the next day at work, to stay up reading- because I just have to know? That's a sign of a great book to me, and if you decide to try out INSPECTION? It might be good to arrange to have the next day off.

Recommended!

While I enjoyed every minute of Kate Hope Day’s debut, Inspection is a novel I almost quit reading on more than one occasion. The premise is decent, and you connect with the characters almost immediately. The problem is that nothing happens for a good two-thirds of the novel. Josh Malerman spends that much time showing the reader his school, what it is like for the students there, and why some staff members may have a problem with it. In other words, the first two-thirds are boring.

Once Mr. Malerman introduces readers to the girls’ school, the story takes off like a rocket. Suddenly, we can see the entire picture and get an idea of where the story is going. We understand the real horror behind the schools’ establishment, and we recognize the manipulative greediness of the headmaster and mistress. The story also gets dark – so very, very dark. While Mr. Malerman avoided showing the monsters in his previous novel, Bird Box, in Inspection we don’t just see them, we get into their minds and see the world from their eyes. We also see the steps the kids are willing to take to gain control of their lives, and it is not pretty. Or tidy.

Inspection is the type of novel I am glad I finished but did not necessarily enjoy. The ending is nothing like I thought it would be. The story went to places I was not expecting, and I am glad it did if only because it improved a subpar novel. I did not enjoy the slog to get to that point though, and the shock and awe of the ending only moderately overcome the monotony of the story’s beginning. That ending certainly allows the story to earn its place in the horror genre, but the true horror is getting through the monotonous first two-thirds of Inspection first.
