  1. Cora and the five other encaged teenagers Lucky, Rok, Mali, Rolf and Leon have to, in the human zoo they are confined in, conform to three rules before the twenty first day of isolation from Earth had passed or else they will be removed The following directives were created by an extraterrestrial specie 1 Decode the puzzles hidden inside their custody2 Provide their body everything necessary in order to stay healthy3 ReproduceYou know, I frankly think that this could have worked a little better [...]

  2. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss I also believe the infinity paradox is responsible for the headaches we ve all been complaining about Our minds can t handle this much predictability In short Ugh Just ugh.This review will contain spoilers from here on and it won t be pretty.I didn t like any of the characters in this book Cora was irritating She s on an alien planet, in a cage as she calls it, and she wants to [...]

  3. Everything considered, this is not a bad book at all the writing is good and flows well, the world building is excellent, and the characters well developed but I was kind of meh about a large portion of it My biggest complaint is how a big part or the book is spent bickering and pointlessly planning an escape I mean, how do they expect to get back home They re in some alien world for gods sake and Cora s plan is to make a run for it and hope for the best It s like she never even takes this into [...]

  4. Gah, I m not sure what to think about this book One one hand, I feel like it s definitely unique and refreshing, partaking on a sci fi idea and molding it into something new On the other hand, it had a lot of things that made me raise my eyebrow, want to bang my head on a wall, and gouge my eyes out.Let s get one thing straight, though the writing is mad awesome It s been a while since I ve read such beautiful writing that reads like a sweet harmony, as if reading it is like listening to angelic [...]

  5. Zugegeben, das Buch hat definitiv seine Schw chen und die Charaktere sind bis zum Schluss allesamt sehr unrealistisch und unsympathisch geblieben, aber die Geschichte hat mich echt gepackt und ich bin super gespannt, wie es weitergeht

  6. A brilliant, exciting tale of what it s like to be human, even when all hope is lost Shepherd perfectly contrasts freedom and entrapment, humanity and alien nature, loss and love.

  7. An Electronic Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher via Edelweiss for review.Cora wakes up in a desert, with no knowledge of who put her there Thinking the impossible, she ventures out only to meet a boy her age Both have no memories of how they got there As they explore the area, certain things don t make any sense How different parts are different seasons, how the town square is a mash up of different cultures and how the other three people who are also locked up are also hiding s [...]

  9. Rating 3.5Take a seat children, I have a story to tell.I am going to try and do my review in a different format this time Might be a little easier for me So I picked this book up a couple days before the release, I do believe my local bookstore was getting sick of me I was honestly stocking the store for when they got their deliveries and asking if they had it in yet The Cage was one of my highly anticipated books of 2015 The Good Cassian or The Caretaker I loved him throughout this whole book H [...]

  10. This review was done by KissinBlueKarenTHE CAGE is such a unique story What would you do if you woke up in a fake reality with 5 strangers Cora wakes up in the desert with no recollection of how she got there She meets a boy there named Lucky and together they find 4 strangers One is dead Together they find out that they are being watched everywhere they go Soon they are introduced to their captors, a race called Kindred There are three rules solve the physical and mental puzzles that are every [...]

  11. Initial reaction 2.5 stars overall, I liked the setup and really liked the beginning, but it dragged its heels far too many times and force fed the relationships far too much for me to really like it than what I did I want to follow the series, though.Full review This is another YA sci fi dystopian series I ve picked up in the past year where the premise had a ton of potential for the set up, but the way it executed left me feeling exhausted and uber annoyed by the time I finished it Pretty muc [...]

  12. So promising.So disappointing.Megan has a tendency for inconsistency and terrible romance I love her plot ideas I like her engaging writing style, but she fails to deliver the complete package.EDITthedailyprophecy 2Shepherd s previous series, The madman s daughter, had its up and downs I loved her writing, so I had hope for this book It started as a promising story, but it went downhill and ended up being nothing special Cora wakes up in the middle of a dessert She has no memory of what has happ [...]

  13. 4.5 StarsFREAKING FANTASTIC Things I loved It was so interesting and different ALIENS There was a sort of love triangle that I actually really liked I could not put this sucker down I was GLUUUUED to those pages Until like 4am Yikes The ending had me CLAWING for But it was still a satisfying ending not open ended or annoyingly cliffhangery.Things I didn t like I didn t like Rolf s character development I loved him at first but HATED him at the end Sometimes Cora could do annoying stupid things [...]

  14. Today is the day of celebration I knew this day will come and I waited and waited and waited I finally met a book where love triangle ruined the story It was not just bad, it was catastrophic I should be glorious and celebrate, but I don t want to, because I actually would ve loved this book if not for this ruin of a romance Megan Shepherd knows how to write, she knows how to make you sympathize MCs, she knows how to intrigue and how to give you a mouth dropping cliffhanger The concept of The ca [...]

  15. This a cover that is sure to catch the eye and draw you in, The Cage truly has a unique premises.To say I liked this would be, well it wouldn t quite be enough and maybe than enough all at the same time.This was oddly alluring and I don t even know why exactly other than I was intrigued by the gorgeous cover and the promise of an original read that would keep me on my toes.Constantly wondering if their captures were telling the truth or not about Earth and of course wondering whether the captee [...]

  16. Ich bin absolut begeistert von dieser Geschichte, eine geniale Mischung aus Maze Runner, Panem und noch einen Buch, das w rde allerdings zu viel spoilern Ich bin jedenfalls absolut begeistert und m chte mehr

  17. 2.75 stars I had really high hopes for this book since I loved The Madman s Daughter by Megan but unfortunately it was pretty disappointing for me The premise sounded really promising but the execution and the characters I wasn t a huge fan of This book could have been suspenseful and mysterious but instead it was just kinda irritating and annoying All the teenagers in this novel did was sit around doing basically nothing The only character who didn t irritate me was Cora, I actually read her PO [...]

  18. Tof plot met onverwachte wendingen, maar ik heb echt een hekel aan special snowflake Cora en aangezien het grootste gedeelte van het boek uit haar perspectief geschreven is en de romantiek was ook enorm cheesy Geen topboek wat mij betreft, maar aangezien ik het vervolg in huis heb zal ik wel verder lezen.Mijn complete recensie lees je op Oog op de Toekomst.

  19. Remember that post from a few weeks ago, about whether you review with your head or your heart Keep that in mind, because this one is really not coming from my head, or any logical place For a logical breakdown, I am sending you over to Kirsty Marie Studio Reads, because her review has logic and explains how she feels, and I agree with a lot of what she says.My review Well I really, really liked this book It was addicting to me, really At first I wasn t sure about it, because it is seriously an [...]

  20. The Cage is a good read But it had the potential to have been a great one if only it wasn t struck by a severe case of ridiculous instalove.People fall into the same routines of thinking day after day toss an apple and it falls to the ground Pick a flower and it withers Fall asleep and wake the next morning But this This was like dropping an apple and having it fall toward the sun.16 year old Cora and four other teenagers wake up with no idea where they are or how they got there As they slowly b [...]

  21. Geweldig Soms had het wat spannender gemogen maar voor de rest was het top Dit verhaal is zo origineel en ik had nooit verwacht dat ik dit zo leuk zou vinden Ik begin zo snel mogelijk in deel 2

  22. Well that was fun The Cage by Megan Shepherd is the story of a young girl who awakens and finds herself in a strange place, surrounded by 5 other young adults They ve been kidnapped by an alien race known as the Kindred and they are in a kind of a habitat under 24 hour observation Which reminds me of that Star Trek episode where the crew was being watched by those black and white people, but I digress The kids are told that they need to follow three simple rules 1 They must solve enrichment puzz [...]

  23. 3.5 STARSTHE CAGE was surprisingly an okay read Not great, but not terrible either I never read anything by Megan Shepherd so I really didn t know what to expect from her books But I always thought her synopsis s sounded fantastic and like something I would enjoy But for whatever reason I never gotten round to reading anything by Shepherd, until THE CAGE And when I first heard about a human zoo run by Aliens, I was instantly intrigued and knew I had to read it So of course I HAD to check it out [...]

  24. GLASS CASE OF EMOTIONS I m going to flat out honest right here I almost didn t read The Cage Sure the cover was interesting, but I wasn t a huge fan of Her Dark Curiosity though I loved The Madman s daughter , so I was pretty much about to avoid this book But then after a month of seeing the cover everywhere, I skimmed across the synopsis and all of a sudden this was a read it now or die type of book So I downloaded And I read it in one day.Holy shit guys Just Holy shit.There were so many unique [...]

  25. What would you do if you woke up as an exhibit in a zoo Well that s pretty much what happens to Cora Mason and 4 other teenagers that inhabit The Cage.Taken by an alien race, they must discover the motives behind their captivity to survive the challenges that are put before them Some want to escape, some are happy with the status quo and some will do anything to create changebut will they all survive Cora finds herself attracted to the strange and mysterious caretaker , Cassian Can her relations [...]

  26. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.I don t have much to say about The Cage It wasn t bad, but it wasn t great It was right in the middle books, which usually means that it didn t leave a big impression The world and concept were really interesting I hated how Cora was treated by the other characters, but it was also interesting to see how everyone interacted and adapted to the cage and each other The romance was meh I didn t feel it It felt odd, like it didn t belong in the s [...]
