THE LAST ONE ALEXANDRA OLIVA

TWELVE CONTESTANTS
When Zoo agrees to take part in a new reality TV show, In the Dark, she knows that she will be tested to the limits of her endurance. Beating eleven competitors in a series of survival tasks deep in the forest, living on camera at the extremes of her comfort zone, will be the ultimate challenge before she returns home to start a family.
A GAME WITH NO END
As the contestants are overcome by hunger, injury and psychological breakdown, the mind games, tricks and hazards to which Zoo is subjected grow dark beyond belief. This isn’t what she signed up for: the deserted towns and gruesome props, the empty loneliness. Is this a game with no end? And what is happening away from the cameras’ gaze?
Discovering the truth will be just the beginning…
AN ALTERED REALITY Translated into over twenty languages, The Last One is a gripping, provocative tale of survival – of the fittest, of the best loved, of the relationships that sustain us.
MY REVIEW
Twelve contestants take part in a reality TV show. The story is a really good idea, but for me there were too many characters. I have read that when writing a novel it’s best to keep to a few main characters, not to confuse readers. And I was confused here, and didn’t bond with any characters as too many. I did have high hopes of giving this high flying reviews, but sadly this book wasn’t one of my favourite to highly recommend. The Last One is Alexandra Oliva’s first novel and although I didn’t enjoy this novel I didn’t hate it either, I have decided to follow Alexandra Oliva on Goodreads in hope that her next novel will have me singing at the top of my voice.  However I do recommend The Last One as every reader likes different reading choices.
