What We're Reading: The Last One

The Last One

A reality television show drops its contestants into an isolated, heavily wooded area, and after a few team challenges that pit them against each other, they're left on their own to survive with few supplies and little direction. The twist is contestants don't realize the show is set out to test them psychologically as well as physically, but that becomes clear after the first few challenges where contestants are made to believe that people have been killed or grievously injured. Everyone is at their worst, undergoing difficult challenges and living off the land in a rugged, harsh terrain.
