Review of Skin Cage


The story held my interest from the very start because the author so vividly describes what it is like to be trapped in your own body, aware but unable to move or communicate with anyone. I have known two persons who were in a coma. In fact one still is for the past four years and I kept reading this book to find out more of what it is like to be in a vegetative state and what it is like to be a caregiver to people in that condition..
The author’s descriptive writing held me glued to the book. The ending was indeed surprising.
Although this book is fiction I recommend it to relatives of persons who are in a coma. They will learn from this book to be careful what they do or say in front of them
