Nora Glass | 11 comments I'd like some stories where some crazy things are made to happen just to be watched on TV. Or maybe as some twisted experiment. Like the Hunger Games but different. I just watched this tv series called The Hollow on Netflix where.

The kids are hypnotized to get amnesia to be watched on a game show. Check it out it’s great.!


So I like the idea of giving people amnesia as well. Another similar book would be Masterminds but I'd prefer it if the results were watched by a bigger audience. I know this is a lot to ask but if you find anything similar, with one of these themes, let me know. Thanks!

Gillian Wiseman (gillianwiseman) | 193 comments There's always the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - game aspect, no amnesia.
And Maze Runner by James Dashner - the amnesia, a sort of game or challenge, but no live tv show aspect.
and my last suggestion - Horizon by Scott Westerfeld - kids crash in a plane somewhere mysterious - are they being watched?

Hope these help!

Nora Glass | 11 comments I've already read running out of time, the rest sound great! I’m definitely putting Maze runner on my want to read list.
