I thought this book was dreadful. The premise was great - a reality show like "The Amazing Race" in which the characters had to go on a scavenger hunt across the globe. But none of the characters were very likable and the author went out of her way to sensationalize all the characters flaws or "traits". Maybe she was trying to parallel the book with actual reality shows, but this book fell flat no matter what she was trying to accomplish.
As an avid fan of reality t.v., I was most anxious to read this novel about a mother and daughter on a reality game show. I was not disappointed. I acutally bought this book on Tuesday before New Years, and read nearly non stop until I finished it. The characters are well written, the behind the scenes peek at producing a reality show raised some questions in my own mind. Each chapter is told from the POV of a different character, a writing style that I personally like.
I thought this was a pretty good book. Thought provoking b/c of the ethical/ emotional conflicts of the characters. But, the book was not really deep. Fairly easy read... read it in about 2 weeks. Interesting characters.
Really entertaining book.
Development of characters is great. A fictional look at the emotions and personalities behind the "characters" you see on TV reality/game shows like Survivor and Amazing Race.
A good read!
I really liked this book! I thought each of the stories was interesting and I found myself continuing to read to find out what happened next. Also the concept of a reality show made it entertaining! Good book!
