Gly ending and they can t reach all the contestants still out thereThe show our contestants are on is In the Dark Basically the winner gets a million dollars It s about survival and is a new show with a ginormous budget It s to air three episodes a week A lot of details are kept under wraps from the contestants but they are told there could be times they are on their own for long periods of time They say they are always watchingeven from afar So as you can seeeven when everything gets real bad it s still pretty logical to not piece everything togetherThe story alternates between present day from the perspective of Zoo and about three weeks earlier from the reality show perspective meaning what the production team is piecing together from the footage The contestants all ave clever nicknames such as Zoo Banker Tracker Waitress Black Doctor Exorcist etc Well maybe not so clever but that is Aga(c)Silas how the characters were referred to throughout In Zoo s chapters she would refer to people by their actual names leading to confusion in who was who for a while I put some of it together though I still probably couldn t match up all the names to their nickname Some of the chapters also feature a blog post about the show with comments from viewers allowing for additional viewpoints on the whole situationI loveow Zoo s chapters became a sort of psychological examination with all the trauma she was experiencing both mentally and physically and Crushing Low Stakes Poker her strong belief in knowing she was on a reality show leadinger to refuse to believe what she was seeing and experiencing The way the line between reality tv and real life was so fuzzy it was even unclear to the reader at times There is a lot to be appreciated about this one I think it Disney Princess Learning to Count had it s slow moments and confusing ones but it than made up for that One thing is clear Alexandra Olivaas talent I am very excited to see what she writes next Well that escalated uickly seems to be the theme of this book I Ella, The Slayer (Serenity House, had a blast reading this one it was disturbing in an in your face type of manner with no concern for the reader s feelings just as I like it I will say that I agree with most of the other reviews before mine if thisad been cleaned up just a bit it would Modern Viking have been a 5 star read for me no uestions asked This wasn t your typical YA dystopian novel there are relationships but in reality no romance is portrayed The content is adult than your typical teen story whi 35 stars This book will be popular not just because of marketing but because it will appeal to different types of people You get a little bit of a lot of different things and not too much of any one thing It s an interesting commentary on everything fromow the media shapes public perception to psychological unraveling in the face of severe trauma to subtle messages about choosing to eat organic foodWhat I wished there would The Spirit of Intimacy have been of the dystopianapocalyptic factor It is pretty much in the background until the end The main focus was onow the first week of the reality show unfolded t0ld in flashbacks Even if you aven t seen a survival type reality show you pretty much already know exactly ow it goes Alliances team challenges bickering etcI didn t really feel anything for any of the characters unfortunately The crazy Exorcist dude was kind of funny but an ass I kind of liked Tracker and Air Force guy and Engineer Biology and Carpenter Chick were okay I guess but we don t really get to know anyone I didn t really like Zoo I felt like she was in denial for way too long I know there were reasons to explain it but still I felt frustrated and The Amory Wars, Volume 1 her actions didn t really evoke any feelings of sympathy from me I felt like a lot of boxes were checked offer atheist modern woman didn t want kids although she did angst about it enough so we are not sure what she really wants didn t change One Night with The Sheikh her last name when she married it s the end of the world and she is in a grocery store and what does she seek out uinoa and Kashi cereal She makes sure to only put a tiny bit of maple syrup oner food because extra caloriessugar facepalm Maybe it was intentional to portray er that wayThe ending was Unsatisfying Very I Am Still Very I am still sure ow much time was supposed to go by during the whole thing It seemed like she was out in the woods for less than a month but yet she Family Wanted had basically loster mind Was she already a little mental before it all started I just wasn t sureI did really like the young teen Brennan I would like to see of the world after the epidemic I m rating up because I Keys to Tulsa have to admit I was very interested despite feeling somewhat unsatisfied and it was a uick easy read I may add later Not sure Overall I would recommend it and I think it will be very popular Original postI just won this in a GRs giveaway Yay However the Station Eleven and The Passage references worry me since I DNF d both those books HAHA How did I miss that I mustave entered before DNFing those Didn t I When did this contest start I don t even remember P Ps I didn t think this was anything like Station Eleven to be Secret Africa honest But then again I DNF d that one This was rough and definitely the biggest disappointment of my reading year I was really looking forward to this book I love the premise and was excited by the comparisons to Station Eleven a book I loved immensely but man did this ever fall flat for me The story is told from two perspectives before and after The unnamed protagonist was a contestant in a reality tv show when a plagueit and is left alone but thinking that this is still all part of the show I Crush (Awkward, have watched an awful lot of reality tv and the parts about the show were really enjoyable I likeow the author plays with the tropes of the genre and مهارت در بازی زندگی how real that felt My problem was with the second story line following the protagonist who just does not realize that the showas ended and that the plague really really really is real The reader knows the plague really really really is real The reader knows from the beginning and my patience with The Dragon in the Clock Box her wore thin a long time before she caught up While there was some sort of explanation given forer idiocy sorry that still didn t work for me at all We spend so much time in My Amazing Dinosaur (Tib Tumtum, heread that at around the 30% mark I just wanted to shake The Nazi Revolution her and that wish never left me Everytime she sees something that should give away that the showas indeed ended she just thinks wow they really are spending an awful lot of money on special effects but they cannot fool me I only finished the book because I wanted to know what Bloods a Rover (American Underworld Trilogy happens to the child she finds on the way a child she treats soorribly because she thinks e s a camera man meant to stir up drama for the rating that I lost all remaining sympathy I ad for the character Her self loathing tendencies only led to me nodding and agreeing and I am fairly sure that was not the reaction that was supposed to comeI think part of the reason is that I listened to the book on audio so it took me a lot longer than if I Wylde Bears (Wylde Bears, had read it Also it really drivesome the fact that the protagonist is so much in Cooking Light Lazy Gourmet heread there is a scene in the middle where she contemplates what to cook in excrutiating detail and then thinking back on memories the spices bring and Arise her relationship wither Archies Americana, Vol. 1 husband and and and while theungry child is looking at er And I am fairly sure that wasn t meant to feel like forever So yes I am disappointed because I LOVE the premise and parts were Really Interesting I Wish The Story Had Been Told Broader interesting I wish the story ad been told broader the other contestants would Talk to Me have been fleshed out because there is real potential for a story I would love. Skills and learn new ones as she goes But aser emotional and physical reserves dwindle she grasps that the real world might ave been altered in terrifying ways and er ability to parse the charade will be either Educating for the New World Order her triumph orer undoing Sophisticated and provocative The Last One is a novel that forces us to confront the role that media plays in our perception of what is real Living in Little Rock with Miss Little Rock how readily we cast our judgmentsow easily we are manipulat. Gruesome stuff with The Character Of An Upright Man having to feed themselves in the wilderness And some tension between the contestants The explanation most viewers will jump to is as common an assumption as maternal instinct female jealousy Waitress is younger skinnier and prettier after all But Zoo doesn t care that Waitress is pretty or skinny or young All she cares about is that she s delaying their team She would be eually annoyed at a man doing the sameOnce the game starts you realize that in the outside world something is going on People are getting sick and dying The contestantsave no clue and after facing a few team challenges they are told that they are now on their own for a solo challengeIt s told from a retro look back at the game and real time with one contestant Zoo as she faces the challenge of being own Mr. Malcolms List her own and thinking that nothing is wrong and all the stuff she runs into is part of the gamewith all it s props She does know not to trust anyone named the Governor cacklesOne of the problems does ariseere for me also Zoo uses the contestants real names They aren t mentioned in explanation of which character is which and I never did figure out some of them It still kept me turning pages as fast as my fingers would go though To gain viewers because I GURPS Conspiracy X have to admit if I weren tere if I weren t a contestant I d watch this show I d soak in their vision of mangled familiarity and I d love itAll in allit s a dang good book It gives you a glimpse of Just One Golden Kiss how the media can distort the public s empathy also For a debut book this sucker is so worth reading Booksource Netgalley in exchange for review The only one of my friends thatave tried this book is TLshe didn t like it and she picks out some good books There may be a chance that I totally read this one wrong I ve done that before ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an The Tyranny of Guilt honest reviewFirst of all I want to give all the props in the world to Alexandra Oliva because this is one of the best debut author novels I ve ever read I was so impressed byer fresh take on a survivorpandemic story in this Phantom Encounters heavily saturated market That sow they do it they blur the line between reality and nightmare They give me bad dreams and then they make them come true The Last One is about a TV survival reality show that is airing right before a global pandemic Eat Your Way Through the USA happens The contestants are unaware still thinking they are participating in the show inopes of winning the one million dollar prizeThe cast is made up of 12 people with different color bandanas that are reduced to mere stereotypes 1 Zoo sky blue bandana female main protagonist loves animals white blonde glasses2 Tracker red bandana male survival expert My Dirty Janitor Book 4 has a sick mother3 Waitress violet bandana female very good looking viewed as dumb4 Rancher black yellow bandana cowboy5 Air Force navy blue bandana male military pilot6 Black Doctor mustard yellow bandana male radiologist calm 7 Cheerleader Boy pink bandana college student viewed as weak8 Biology orange bandana lesbian 7th grade science teacher9 Engineer maroon brown bandana male young Chinese American wants to learn10 Asian Girl neon yellow bandana very skilled in carpentry11 Exorcist lime green bandana male redair performs exorcisms viewed as crazy12 Banker black white bandana male filler Jewish super niceYou do eventually find out their names in a very tricky way that is lightly laced throughout the book This ended up being one of my favorite parts of the story and every time I would come across a name I would get giddy and Stories from Spain / Historias de España have to write it in my notes so I could figure out all twelve upon completion view spoiler1 Zoo Sam2 Tracker Cooper3 Waitress Heather4 Rancher Julio5 Air Force Ethan6 Black Doctor Tyler7 Cheerleader Boy Josh8 Biology Sofia9 Engineer Albert10 Asian Girl Amy Thank you so much Stacy11 Exorcist Randy12 Banker Elliotide spoiler I liked the premise but the book was just okay First Read June 2016 Rating 55 starsSecond Read March 2020 Rating 55 starsThis book sounded pretty much like it was created with my personal tastes in mind a thriller following the characters on a reality TV survival show as they traverse thr 2 12 stars Here s the problem this is a good book but I just didn t really like it that muchComparisons between The Last One and Station Eleven are spot on in my opinion So if you liked the latter there s a good chance this book will suit
*your tastes it *
tastes It another dense wordy literary post apocalyptic novel It s clever and yet I found it emotionally distantOliva presents us with a great premise a reality TV show turned nightmare Twelve contestants are sent into the woods with zero knowledge of what to expect The show is about survival and is meant to test their limits this they know but no one knows just Spanish-American Short Stories / Cuentos hispanoamericanos how far the producers are willing to go So when corpses and devastation show up it s kind of assumed that this is just a twisted staged part of the gameYeah it isn tUnbeknownst to the contestants a pandemicas broken out and shit Broken Bear has gotten really bad Communicationsave broken down and there s nobody out there to pull them from the game So this survival game turns into something very real Interspersed with Reddit like forums The Last One is a book about the media reality TV culture and the way our obsession with both impacts us in the modern and post modern worlds It s a fantastic ideaI also can t argue that Oliva spends a lot of time on er characters especially Zoo They get description and development and oh so many words but as with Station Eleven I was never convinced that the main characters were worth reading about I appreciated the book in a kind of abstract way but never engaged with it or cared where it was leadingFor the most part it s a very slow and dry survival story It alternates between the present where Zoo is experiencing a dying world and doesn t know it and the start of the competition where the contestants are referred to by nicknames like Banker and Cheerleader Boy This way of treating the contestants as things and not people was interesting but also didn t elp me warm to them With only a few rare exceptions I m just not the type of person to enjoy a story without caring for the characters I don t Hatter have to like them but Iave to be interested Oh the world ended But what does it really matter if there s no one in this world I find interestingA smart book with a lot of thought obviously gone into it Probably interesting to study than it is enjoyable to readBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Store 35 stars Alexandra Oliva s debut novel deserves all the Paint the Wind hype it s been getting The premise alonead me ooked A story where contestants are on a Survivor esue reality show cut off from society when something of catastrophic proportions affects the rest of the world causing even blurrier lines between what is real and what is reality tvSound interesting original causing even blurrier lines between what is real and what is reality tvSound interesting original exciting It fits all of these descriptions And even leaves room for social commentary on reality TV much in the same way that the TV show Unreal does with the behind the scenes look at one of the biggest parts of current pop culture We get glimpses of the way editing can change the way a contestant is portrayed the way an event plays out or it can leave out the moments producers ad to push someone to do something We see The Perfect Resume how producers create a character and give that character a storyline off what the cameras shoot and piece together what fits There s often an end game What these producers can t plan for is just what occurs when the world is seemin.

Congratulations semifinalist in goodreads best science fiction category 2016 It s all just part of the game As long as I keep that in mind I ll be fine no matter ow twisted things getfamous last words manthis book was so so fun and i Air Terisak Membelah Batu had such a great time reading it but the fact that some people i usually agree with did not means i gotta write one of those probably only interesting to me reviews to work out what i loved about it without giving too much away because spoiler policethe premise is shivery good twelve individuals are selected to be contestants on the premiere season of a survival themed reality series shrouded in secrecy with a feature film sized budget and a near simultaneous film to broadcast time three episodes a week many of the specifics and details are withheld from the contestants including the true name of the show itself they know only that it will reuire woodsy survival skills strategy endurance and it soon becomes clear there will be an element of theatricality three weeks into filming with episodes already airing and while the remaining contestants are scattered apart from each other into individual challenges there is a global pandemic and while the world doesn t end shit is really really bad communications are compromised and one of the contestants nicknamed zoo is oner own off course and unreachable and making Canned her way through an increasingly ruined wasteland she believes to be part of the show encountering corpses she assumes are props following what she perceives to be clues but in reality she s just witnessing what the world looks like when it dies believing she is still being monitored byidden cameras and drones zoo doesn t comprehend the gravity of GIFTED--2005 POETRY COLLECTION her situation she assumes she stillas a safety net an out if she needs one that the crew won t let er die or get into any real danger despite the very real and very dangerous situations in which she keeps finding erself not that she s planning on taking advantage of that safety net Nothing can be worse than what they ve already put me through I d never choose this not again But I m Lisa and David Today here and I m a woman of my word and I promised myself I wouldn t uitit s a fascinating situation psychologically considering the tricksy mindgames reality television plays even when there s not an apocalypse going on where viewers are complicit in their own manipulation for entertainment reuired to accept a semblance of reality with the tacit understanding that the reality is largely fabricated as one character observes before all the real bad begins Thoughe will not admit as much the cameraman s presence gave Clinton, Inc. him the courage toead off into the woods alone It s only pretend alone Dvorak Keyboard he thinksand as zooerself acknowledges unfortunately and unknowingly after the real bad begins The world in which I now move is a deliberate The Muslim Masquerade human perversion of nature s beauty I cannot forget this I must accept this Iave accepted thisit s a premise so rich with opportunities for psychological exploration and social commentary and oliva does an excellent job taking advantage of these opportunities the narrative switches back and forth in time between the show before the event setting up characters and challenges and motivations and to zoo on er own afterwards in the changed world maintaining er persona adapting How to Heal Your Body her behavior for the viewer who is no longer there trustinger life to a set of rules no longer in placethat is some scary shit manuick personal fact that may or may not be interesting or relevant i The Book of Revelation have never watched survivor or any of those shows iave seen commercials for where people are tossed naked into the woods or made to eat unusual things or dropped from Naughty Bedtime Stories (Naughty Bedtime Series Book 2) high buildings for cash prizes soow well this book reflects or references those shows is lost on me but even though i ve never personally witnessed this kind of situation on the teevee i understand the psychological strain inherent in this arrangement Practical Prinkery how the presence of the camera and the unseen audience affects behavior constructs personas as armor andow the editing of raw footage influences and manipulates people into caricatures of themselves within the book characters are referenced by nicknames reduced to roles based on their professions or skills banker asian chick who later gets upgraded to carpenter chick cheerleader boy etc which annoyed some readers but i kind of liked it since with the reality game shows i do watch like project runway and top chef this is exactly what i do when there s too many of them to keep track of at first and you gotta differentiate them by their salient characteristics affected or not The Problem of the Puer Aeternus (Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analysts, 87) here it drives the pointome that these people theeeeese peeeeeople The Art of Not Breathing have been reduced to stereotypes pigeonholed into roles to fulfill an audience s expectations and whatever doesn t fit into this role is edited away as though it neverappened the contestant s real names are occasionally used when they form bonds or in the outside world as fans of the showfriends of the contestants gather in a chat room to dish and it s a little confusing but it s also kind of a fun game being exposed to the personalities of these contestants in their day lives and contrasting them with their show livesit to the personalities of these contestants in their day lives and contrasting them with their show livesit a very strong debut there are a couple of weak parts and a bit of

not uncommon authorial choices made to maximize dramatic impact that come across as improbable including my own personal bugbear involving communication aka if this one character says this one wicked important thing they don t reallyave reason not to say and which is only not being said in order to prolong a dramatic situation syndrome although to be fair i think it is A Peoples Tragedy handled better I usually overlook some things in an arc copy of a book that bugs me but I m reallyoping that this one gets cleaned up just a bit because it s a full five star book if it does A reality TV show
