I read this book way back in the day. It stuck with me as a great read ever since so I thought I'd reread it. I really like Schulman's writing style--I think this might might be her first book. The characters are rich, the plot well drawn, and the underlying thread of real and competent female strength is still fresh and rewarding. I doubt that Audry Schulman spent time in a small cage with giant polar bear's drooling and breathing on her but there are parts that feel true. She has a nice way of enriching Pip, her protagonist, with background flashbacks that are sometimes to strange to be made up.
The Cage has a simmering ominous atmosphere that makes for compelling reading. Brrrrr. Maybe it's an over-statement but I'd keep this gem on the shelf next to Jaws and Deliverance if I had bought a hard copy rather than the K version. Hmmm, maybe I should reread those as well. I'm glad I found The Cage again. Try it. You'll like it, I'm sure.

This book.....wow. I am so close to giving it 5 stars. I have rarely been so compelled to read on, to see these characters through one of the most harrowing, unimaginable experiences I've ever encountered in fiction. While I was in the final chapters, where things really "heat up" (as much as things can "heat up" in the Arctic Circle), I was trembling, really trembling, with tension from the suspense, drama, danger, and fear I felt on behalf of these characters. They're "real people" in that they're pretty well fleshed out, believable, relatable--especially Beryl (the protagonist) and David (a companion photographer on the same expedition). Short book, page-turner in some places (especially at the end, as I've mentioned), nicely thoughtful but still well-paced character study in other places. Schulman is one of the masters of matching physicality to character, of making this reader, at least, truly feel present in her characters' lives.

Audrey Schulman is the best writer you've never heard of. She captures the inner working of a mind and has powers of description like no one else.

I liked everything, except the ending.. it left me with no ending

This was required reading for a feminine gothic class. It reminded me of Into the Wild but from a feminist perspective. Good read, I'll probably read it again when I have more time.

This is such a lovely story, poetic as she observes the polar bear from up close. Hypnotic. I have read it several times and love the imagery.
I so enjoyed this book that I bought a second copy to pass along to others. I had misplaced my first book years ago but couldn't forget the story.
