I really liked the main character Rory. She was familiar and there were moments I saw myself in her. She meets Adam on the show who she becomes drawn to, but at the same time he also becomes the annoying, nagging conscience and morality she can't ignore even when she wants to. There is also a tugging mystery when things start to go wrong and it keeps me hooked. Everyone in the reality show reveals their true colors. Even the show and the audience themselves.
While I don't like reality shows in real life, this book is a captivating mystery. The author reveals the coldness of society and people and our selfishness in a stark way. It will make you wonder if we really are like this and if we would act the same way. I highly recommend this book if you love or hate reality shows, or if you just love a good thriller.
To be picky I did notice a couple of typos towards the end but there were very few. Overall it was excellent writing and a well told story.
26 year old Rory Stephens feels trapped… smothered by a life that is being controlled by those around her. Safe choices and predictability define her world, until she can’t stand it anymore.
And then she sees it… nestled in among a slew of spam emails in her inbox. Bored of everyday life? Dream of being rich? Famous? So begins an invitation to audition for a new reality TV program called The Retreat, complete with a hefty grand prize to the winner. Sure, it could be a scam, but what if it isn’t? Rory decides to do something crazy- the first unpredictable, spontaneous thing she’s ever done. She auditions for a reality TV show.
To her great surprise, she’s selected as one of eight contestants. But just what she’s signed up for remains to be seen, as the details of this new show remain shrouded in mystery- and it doesn’t help that the other contestants are a pain. Yet, just when she thinks keeping the peace will be her biggest challenge, the power suddenly goes out on the second day of filming, leaving the contestants completely cut off from the outside world. Could this really be a part of the show, or has something gone horribly wrong?
Determined to find out, Rory knows that she and her companions must work together, but rising tension has everyone at each other’s throats. It seems like things couldn’t get any worse. And then one of them goes missing….
The Girl on Camera is a refreshingly original and captivating thriller with a modern twist, though you don’t have to be a big fan of Reality TV shows to enjoy this book. A fast-paced plot and richly drawn characters hold the readers attention while they follow along with Rory in unraveling the mystery of The Retreat- as well as a painful secret of the past that haunts her relentlessly. A brilliant first novel from Morgan Dun-Campbell, if you are a fan of modern thrillers, you’ll love this one!
