Foerst litt om boka.
De trodde det var et eksperiment, de tok feil. I et avsideliggende kompleks lang fra sivilisasjonen moetes 8 mennesker til et 7 maaneders opphold uten kontakt med omverden. De har ingen kontakt med folk paa utsiden. Snart viser det seg at dette er en kamp paa liv og doed og bare en kan overleve. Hver deltaker er sponset av en millionaer, som har satt 2 millioner dollar paa sin deltaker som vinner. Og vinneren tar hele potten. Etter som moeter den ene utfordringen etter den andre faller den ene deltakeren etter den andre fra. Et spill uten regler.
Boken bygges fint opp, og bakgrunnskildringen av de to hovedpersonene er bra. Utfordringene de moeter i oedemarken er mange og flere av dem er uforstaaelige til aa begynne med. Den minner meg litt om Matthew Reilly’s foerste bok – Contest. En typisk survival thriller med et brukbart persongalleri. Det forundrer meg faktisk ikke om noe lignende kunne ha skjedd i virkeligheten. I USA er det mange rare ting som skjer. Jeg gir den en klar femmer og vil absolutt lese flere boeker av denne forfatteren.
