內容簡介

十二名參賽者,一個遭扭曲的現實,一場永不停止的生存遊戲
一場以遊戲為名的真實生存,想掩飾的,到底是什麼?
實境秀與現實,只有一線之隔

「《The Last One》無痕融合了兩項當代迷戀:將全球性災難的威脅與實境秀的上演戲劇,轉變為極具想像力的故事,以人類理智在承受壓力時的狀態為主體。這是一本堅定而引人深思的首部小說。」
--《末日之旅》系列作者加斯汀.柯羅寧(Justin Cronin)

她只不過想來場冒險,卻沒有想到場面變得如此失控。

Zoo參加了名為「In the Dark」的實境秀,與其他十一名參賽者一同被送往森林裡。然而,與外界完全失去聯絡的參賽者,面對荒廢的城鎮與過於真實的可怕道具,逐漸因為飢餓、負傷與精神崩潰而倒下,Zoo不得不質疑,這些發生在他們周圍的事件,是人為、還是自然發生?這是一場沒有結果的遊戲嗎?外面的世界,究竟發生了什麼事?

即使主持人說過,找到出口的唯一機會是退出比賽,Zoo孤身一人、失去方向時,卻仍不願放棄,因為她希望成為最後的贏家,拿走一百萬元獎金。然而,當她的理智逐漸斷線,生理與心理的容忍度到達極限,她漸漸發覺,也許真實世界,早已以她無法想像的方式產生劇烈改變。發現事情的真相,卻只是個開始……

A dazzling and unsettling novel of psychological suspense. Survival is the name of the game as one woman's mind and body are pushed to the limit.

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. It's a searingly modern thriller and a timeless story of a woman's journey home.

Praise for The Last One

'A high-concept, high-octane affair ... The conceit is undoubtedly clever and well executed, but what makesThe Last One such a page-turner is Zoo herself: practical, tough-minded and appealing' Guardian
'Clever in its concept and gripping in its delivery. This propulsive book is for everyone who ever thought reality television signalled the end of the world. Haunting, moving, and remarkable' Karen Joy Fowler, Booker-shortlisted author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves

'The Last One seamlessly melds two of our contemporary obsessions -- the threat of global catastrophe; the staged drama of reality TV -- into a fiercely imagined tale of the human psyche under stress. An uncompromising, thought-provoking debut' Justin Cronin, author of international bestseller The Passage

'Taut, tense and at times almost unbearably real, The Last One is both a compelling read, and a terrifyingly believable evocation of survival against the odds' Ruth Ware, author of international bestseller In a Dark, Dark Wood

'Page-turning and deeply unsettling' Rosamund Lupton, author of international bestseller Sister

'Tense and gorgeous and so damn clever. I loved every second' Lauren Beukes, author of international bestseller The Shining Girls

'Clever in the best sense: Oliva is able to skewer reality show culture and dystopian tropes while never letting concept or critique become more important than a good yarn. The novel is thoroughly steeped in its times-the use of a Reddit-like forum plays a key plot role-but unlike other dystopian novels, it doesn't so much use contemporary times to warn us about potential future collapse as it shows what impact our times have on the ways we think about identity and human relationships. An astute and compelling entry into the post-apocalypse genre' Kirkus

'Gripping portrayal of an ordinary person's evolving survival instincts as she realizes she can't trust the reality she sees' Booklist
