Survival is the name of the game as the line blurs between reality TV and reality itself in Alexandra Oliva’s fast-paced novel of suspense.
She wanted an adventure. She never imagined it would go this far.
It begins with a reality TV show. Twelve contestants are sent into the woods to face challenges that will test the limits of their endurance. While they are out there, something terrible happens—but how widespread is the destruction, and has it occurred naturally or is it human-made? Cut off from society, the contestants know nothing of it. When one of them—a young woman the show’s producers call Zoo—stumbles across the devastation, she can imagine only that it is part of the game.
Alone and disoriented, Zoo is heavy with doubt regarding the life—and husband—she left behind, but she refuses to quit. Staggering countless miles across unfamiliar territory, Zoo must summon all her survival skills—and learn new ones as she goes.
But as her emotional and physical reserves dwindle, she grasps that the real world might have been altered in terrifying ways—and her ability to parse the charade will be either her triumph or her undoing.
Where do I start? I got this from Netgalley as it looked good. I must admit it took me a while to get into the story and a while to finish but towards the end of this book it seriously messed with my head! Like woah! What just happpened? It took me a while to work it all out but I loved it Which is why I awarded four stars. The Last One is written well, easy to read and contains short chapters. I know for certain I wouldn’t like to go on this TV show. Be careful while reading this book as everything is not as it seems. I would highly recommend this story to you all even though it started off slowly for myself.
