Off the Book Shelf - Incarceron by Catherine Fisher

This book is a teen level book, but I was happily surprised by the world that the author creates.  There were moments when it was hard for me to wrap my brain around the fact that the prison, Incarceron, is alive, but by the end, I was able to grasp it a little better.

I loved how there was a heroine to the story and that they didn't portray the girl as the weaker character.  There is a sequel to Incarceron and I am interested in reading it so I can now how the story progresses and ends. 

I would recommend this book if you looking for something different from the normal read.  This isn't the type of story that you read everyday.  And no surprise, they are going to make this into a movie.

Incarceron is a prison so vast that it contains not only cells and corridors, but metal forests, dilapidated cities, and wilderness. It has been sealed for centuries, and only one man has ever escaped. Finn has always been a prisoner here. Although he has no memory of his childhood, he is sure he came from Outside. His link to the Outside, his chance to break free, is Claudia, the warden's daughter, herself determined to escape an arranged marriage. They are up against impossible odds, but one thing looms above all: Incarceron itself is alive . . .

Have you read the 2nd book yet? I really liked Incarceron as well, but Saphique COMPLETELY ruined it for me =( The way the whole story ends still has me completely confused!!!
