Everyone Is Watching: A Locked-Room Thriller

We rated this book:


Five people are selected to compete in a new reality tv series, called One Lucky Winner. The show will be randomly live-streamed all over the world, with the contestants competing in both physical and mental challenges. The last one standing will win ten million dollars. The five contestants are: the best friend, the senator, the executive, the boyfriend and the confidante. As the show progresses, the stakes are raised. When a contestant leaves the show, all their secrets are exposed. There is a bigger game at play here and Everyone Is Watching.

While I wouldn’t say this story is super original or highly thrilling, it is entertaining. It definitely makes you question how far you would go for ten million dollars. It was also interesting to see how far people would go just for revenge. Twenty years seems like a really long time to hold on to things and the punishments didn’t necessarily fit the so-called crimes. If you enjoy crazy revenge stories, then you will probably enjoy this one. It wasn’t too bad, but not terribly exciting either.
