    1. What a pleasant surprise this book turned out to be I m a major John Sandford fan but wasn t sure how a young adult version of his books would turn out Though not as gritty as his Virgil Flowers or Lucas Davenport stories, there is still plenty of grit to go around I listened to the audio book and the the narration is pretty good The voices sound like they do for young children s cartoon TV programs Yet she still conveys the story rather well.The story starts off with a group of teenagers and yo [...]


    2. I always get a little nervous when my favorite authors step outside the series for which, I already love them I get it I mean how many times can you write about the same characters without wanting to try something new, right Still, when I heard that John Sandford was teaming up with Michelle Cook to write a YA book, I was worried And frankly, my immediate thoughts were along the lines of Why doesn t he just write an extra Prey novel or and extra Fucking Flowers novel this year Well I love those [...]


    3. Uncaged is a real thrill ride of a book Once you start reading you ll find yourself immediately and completely immersed in the plot and unable to put the book down It s not a short story, it s than 400 pages long, but thanks to Sandford and Cook s captivating writing style, you ll be flipping through those 400 pages at a break neck, finger blistering pace It s really a well written, refreshingly bold, often times deeply disturbing, thought provoking and intensely gripping novel, and I highly re [...]


    4. Well this has been laying around on my reading shelf for a while as I haven t gotten around 5to reviewing it That s because I never really interested in it.Yes we start out with a raid in a lab to raise attention on animal experimentationat goes very wrong From there we do get chases, conspiracies and so on but for me it all dragged and left me wondering why i was putting my time into the book Where the synopsis led me to expect an action adventure what I got in the end seemed to be an introduc [...]


    5. I read anything by John Sandford so I was intrigued when I found out he had taken on a co author and tried his hand at a young adult novel Of course this stars all new characters, including Shay, a teen who is basically homeless along with her older brother They fall into a fight against a corporation that not only tests its products on animals but humans as well While I swear this reminded me of an old Dean Koontz I read decades ago with its race to take down a giant, evil entity with total dis [...]


    6. Even though this novel is a young adult novel I think many adult readers will enjoy reading this series I usually don t care too much for novels that get political or preachy about causes, they can alienate some readers including myself This novel doesn t get too involved with advocating the politics of the rights groups, but allows enough to make a story that keeps you interest in seeing what happens to Shay, Odin, Twist and X.I do hope to learn about these characters along with Cruz and Cade [...]


    7. Review also appeared on my blog Book Addict 24 7Okay, so I read Uncaged by John Sandford because I had a copy of the sequel which I didn t read and I m not going to lie, I was excited for this Why Because mystery thrillers action type books are totally a guilty pleasure for me While the beginning of Sandford s novel was interesting and had me admittedly hooked, I slowly started to lose interest The book was winded and random and kind of boring in parts I kept waiting for something exciting to ha [...]


    8. A grabber of a prologue in this series starter has our heroine, Shay Remby, changing her looks and preparing for danger in a seedy hotel room Then, we flash back to a raid on an animal laboratory in which her brother, Odin, was involved The action is non stop several characters are intriguing the eco activism is or could be refreshing Except for the often confusing plot, the book is an easy read, written with rapid fire sentences and ample dialogue I will probably suggest it to reluctant readers [...]


    9. 3.5 stars While entirely too long, UNCAGED was nonetheless a competent YA thriller The story is touched off by a lab break in conducted by alleged animal rights activists, which is what originally got me interested in this book While the experiments being done on the animals are gruesome and obviously based upon some real research protocols, the activists don t come off that well in the book That said, the research company turns out to be far, far worse, and is the principal villain The activist [...]


    10. This is the first book in this young, adult series This book is a nice start to this series I would have rated this book better if the plot storyline had not jumped around as much It was like the two authors had all these ideas in their head and they could not decide what to edit so they added them all to the story For example there was the whole animal science experiment that Singular Corp was doing, the teen homelessness which I did not see where this really had anything to do with the story l [...]


    11. This is the first book in this series and the only one I have read I really enjoyed it John Sanford and Michelle Cook do a good job the plot is interesting and it is a fun read.



    12. My star rating Probably a 4.75 but it deserves a round up not a round down Plot 4.5 5 Pacing 4.5 5 Characters 5 5World 4 5Romance NAEnjoyment level 5 5 starsOnce upon a time I read John Sandfords adult novels and thoroughly enjoyed them This is his first YA novel and I have to say I think he and Michelle Cook did a fantastic job It was very difficult to tell this was written by two people I loved the style of writing I could tell that this was a adult writer of the YA genre.The pacing was a lit [...]


    13. This one wasn t as bad decent mystery action novel about animals abused in medical experimentation, but there was something about the style in which this was written, or the details, that just made this seem too skeezy for middle school It read like an adult mystery I felt like I needed to take a shower after reading it And yep, Sandford writes rather disturbing adult novels He should converse with Harlan Coben and get some teen feedback, perhaps Or it could just be me For example, I get a litt [...]


    14. This is mostly a first YA effort worthy of John Sanford, whose Prey books have been favorite of mine for many years The characters were engaging and the action was nearly non stop The plot could have deteriorated into clich , but thanks to Sandford s considerable talent, did not So why only two stars THE ENDING STINKS Don t expect to have anything, even the smallest part of the plot, resolved It simply stops Anyone who has read any of my reviews knows that, for me, an ending that is not an endin [...]


    15. I used to finish every book I started whether I liked it or not This book changed that for me I got to about chapter 8 and just couldn t take it any The writing is disjointed and melodramatic, the characters are flat and cliched, the plot at least as far as I got into it lacks imagination and originality The book is billed as a YA thriller, but I feel like the authors underestimate the intelligence of their supposed target audience by writing down to them I only gave this book two stars because [...]


    16. That was a great book Pretty long, not in like length but like reading it it took a long I felt But yo that was great The main character Shay was awesome and Twist seems soo badass I also liked how there wasn t really a love interest, like there kind of is but it s not even a part of the story It was basically Shay wanted to get her brother back by any needs necessary which means no time for love and it was great 4 5


    17. In the book Uncaged by John Sandford and Michele Cook Shay Remby and her brother Odin Remby are foster kids being passed around from house to house after their parents had died when they were younger When Odin raids a lab in their hometown of Eugene, Oregon that is using inhumane methods of researching on humans and animals, he is left with a discovery that could destroy the company and stolen hard drives that could prove it He is forced to run away to Los Angeles right before his 18th birthday [...]

    21. Action packed from beginning to end, Sandford and Cook have written a thrill ride that begs to be read cover to cover without pausing Animal rights activists, computer hackers, thugs, and a benevolent but crazy artist pull readers of every type into this lightning fast drama Odin, an environmental activist, simply takes part in what set out to be a raid to inflict maximum possible damage at a laboratory of unscrupulous reputation That, culminated with extensive YouTube videos, should provide som [...]


    22. This thrilling novel opens with Shay Remby, a young teenage girl on the run, dying her pretty red hair black in a shabby motel As she recalls everything that s happened to her recently, and to her brother Odin, we learn why she needs to hide The reader is taken on a fast paced adventure, from Eugene, Oregon to Malibu, California, to Reno, Nevada, as a group of street kids battle a prominent corporation Secretly, the big business is experimenting on animals and humans When they kidnap Odin, it be [...]


    23. For a first try at a YA novel, this isn t bad, but it isn t great either I may or may not read the second in the series While it is occasionally action oriented, it loses steam in significant portions of the book that seemed unnecessarily long It could have been tightened up some, making for a shorter, but tauter and absorbing story I also think the advance blurbs were quite hyperbolic, and not fulfilled by the story s characters or plot Of course, that is somewhat to be expected, since their p [...]


    24. Uncaged follows the brother and sister duo of Shay and Odin Remby on the run from the police and, possibly disconcerting, the cooperate company Singular When Odin, along with other animal rights activists, breaks into a Singular headquarters, he discovers one of the company s biggest secrets Singular isn t just using animals for test subjects The company is now after Odin, so he must flee to Los Angeles Shay subsequently also finds herself there, searching for her brother As Odin finds himself [...]


    25. I have loved all of John Sandford s adult books Loved them So I was excited about a YA book.cially since I work for a YA and kids publisher I hated this book First of all, it begins with a violent trashing of the animal labs at the University of Oregon, Eugene, exactly where my daughter works All the nonsense about headless dogs and legless monkeys is bs and it pissed me off I listened to the audio, apparently knowing how to correctly pronounce Eugene was not required of the reader Readers often [...]


    26. Fans of Sandford s writing will enjoy his latest offering, eared for the YA crowd However, this is probably like New Adult fiction, as it seems pretty intense and serious in some parts Still, it is an enjoyable, tightly paced, and a definite page turner Shay is a believable Character, and the enigmatic Twist is intriguing Odin and his storyline adds to the suspense and urgency of Uncaged s plot A very fast and furious last 3rd of the book leads to a cliffhanger ending that will leave the reader [...]


    27. What a stinker Have read many of the Prey books by Sandford and thought Uncaged would be similar This book is about a group of teens that are a cross between eco terrorists and animal rights fanatics that are taking on an out of control research company The company is really bad, and the teens are sort of mad and the their solution to make things right is totally unbelievable and the author seems to sympathies with teens that commit federal crimes that would put most folks in the Supermax prison [...]


    28. While I know I wasn t the target audience it is an YA novel , I can honestly say this was the first piece of writing from John Sanford that I didn t care for The writing was good as always, but nothing else clicked for me I didn t care for any of the characters Two thirds of the way though the book when I was seriously thinking of just putting it down I wanted all of them to go under the wheels of a bus I didn t care about the storyline Even the dog bugged me.From now on I will stick to his Luca [...]


    29. This is about what you d expect for a thriller lots of tension, evil people corporation, good guys with a past Its well crafted and the characters are interesting If you like thrillers, you ll probably like this book and you will be glad to know there s to come If the subtitle isn t a big enough hint, the ending will cinch it for you.Thanks to Knopf to sending me an advance copy I ve read very few of Sandford s books and so it was good to expand my author list.
