Book Review - Show Time

About the Book 
Future viewing audiences have become totally desensitized to violence and entirely dependent on sensation to escape their boring workaday lives an addiction nurtured by the media with graphic portrayals of war and crime and with so-called reality programming. Now, TV execs in pursuit of the only things they care about higher ratings and bigger paychecks have created the ultimate reality show: Seven people, each bearing the scars of his or her past, are deposited on an island in the middle of Lake Superior. Given some bare necessities and the promise of $400,000 each if they can endure, the three women and four men risk death by starvation or freezing as the Great Lakes winter approaches. The island is wired for sound, and flying drones provide the video feed, so everything the contestants do and say is broadcast worldwide. Their seven-month ordeal is entirely unscripted, they can t ask for help or they forfeit the prize, and as far as the network is concerned the fewer survivors the better.

My Take on the Book
If you are a fan of reality television, this book will bring you smack dab into the middle of an amazing new reality show that places people into immensely horrific conditions and encourages them to survive. The book is raw and uncensored and you will get a little bit of everything within it. From sex to violence, to the cold reality of the Northern Michigan climate and natural wonders that surround the Upper Peninsula. Once I started reading this book I could not put it down. There was so much action and intrigue and you really can not guess what will happen next until you get to it. This was my kind of book and I highly recommend it to all!
