it was amazing
bookshelves: arc, dystopian-apocalyptic, read-2016

I flew through this book and not because it's action-packed. Sure there's action, there's competitions, there's survival. But that's not what drives it, there's wonderfully compelling writing and storytelling here. From the beginning we know there's a deadly virus spreading and that an epic survival reality TV show is being filmed. At the same time. The contestants have no idea about the illness. The story goes back and forth between the early days of filming and Zoo's present. Is Zoo still competing against other contestants or is she simply just surviving?

Perfect for fans of non-zombie apocalyptic stories, especially Station Eleven.
