Good old Zpoc with some new twists

If you like zombie stories, you really have no reason not to check this book out. It is 99 cents and reads with the quick pace of a thriller. The prison is an interesting take on the old gothic trope of an isolated setting. Total cliff hanger, but now we know this is just the intro to the series. A must-read for zombie fans.

Awesome!

I really enjoy this series so far. I cannot wait for the next book. I always found things about prisons to be interesting. I love the documentaries about them. So having a post-apocalyptic book about zombies and prisons, I'm in! I am excited to read the next installment of the series.

Exciting New Series

This is a great new addition to my favorite genre. Characters are interesting and we'll developed. The story flows well and I can hardly wait for number 2.

I really loved this take on the zombie apocalypse! Sort of an OITNB zombie style type book. The characters are interesting and what I would expect prisoners to be in prison. I would like a little more background on some of them to know why they are in prison and hope in future installments we do get a look into their lives prior to being incarcerated. As the first book delves into what is happening on the “outside” the inside isn’t a great place to be with a warden who is a little nutso and look ...more

Slow pace to a different take on the typical zombie story. If it wasn't advertised as a zombie story, it would take a while for the reader to realize that. Very quick read, makes it easy to want to continue reading the series. Hopefully the action picks up in future installments. Looking forward to the next one.

I got 3/4 of the way through and gave up. Just got so bored. Could not finish it. Too much talk about zombies but very little interaction with them. Oh well.

What a messed up story

Loved it. What would happen to to prisoners inside a prison. With a corrupt warden and worse guards. Can't wait for the next.

Good start to a series. Took me a while to get into the characters but Buda does a good job at ratcheting up the tension and keeping you engaged.

Not sure where to start on this one. I’m not familiar with the works of Chuck Buda and Caged 1 is the first book of his that I’ve read. So, I’m not able to judge the overall body of work by Mr. Buda but I was definitely let down by this novella. The story takes place in a prison during a viral outbreak and zombies come into the picture later in the book. Overall, I think the concept was good and unique but the execution was lacking.

1 AND 1/2 STARS

Oh, boy. Where do I start with this one? While I will continue to enjoy listening to author Chuck Buda on his podcast show, The Mando Method, I'm fairly certain I will not be reading any more of his books. At least for a while, anyway. Caged is apparently the first in a series of zombie books which is advertised as a 'Post-Apocalyptic Dystopian Thriller'. I guess Buda thinks 'zombie' is a bad word and 'horror' is beneath him so he goes with 'thriller' instead. Maybe he hopes to ge

The apocalypse has come, the world is falling, except for a out of the way prison in the woods. But the warden needs to prepare the prison for life after the collapse of civilization... at the expense of the prisoners. But the prisoners aren't going down easy.

Good start for a series - this short novella is a quick and easy read.

*I got this book through GoodRead's Giveaways - an excellent source of interesting books!
