    One thought on “The Contestant”

    1. I started reading this and abandoned it at 30% because I found it very far fetched and unrealistic However, I picked it up again because I the reviews were so good All I can say is they must have got something out of it that I totally missed because my opinion didn t change I find it hard to believe that even a person who is paralysed from the waist down could carry with exposed bones, burned skin etc without suffering from blood loss weakness etc I realise this is fiction but I like my books to [...]

    2. About the author Catherine lives with a fox terrier that thinks he owns the house She has sold international satellite capacity, worked in IT recruitment, and run her own communications store.When Catherine isn t writing, she s dog wrangling, wrestling with technology, or going crazy trying to maintain control of the yardE CANDIDATE S DAUGHTER is her first published work, now followed up by the newly released sequel CHILD OF THE STATE She also writes gritty thrillers under the pen name C.J Lea.B [...]

    3. Such a confusing book What makes it confusing There are a lot of characters The author has done a good job of delineating sections of chapters or entire chapters for each character, but there are just so many to keep track of And some of them are not important, which you don t discover until later There is one character who is important than the others, and the author does focus on him a bit But because there are so many, and each character has two names, I found myself trying to remember why [...]

    4. Catherine Lea, who wrote the excellent The Candidate s Daughter, says the reason she used the pen name CJ Lea for The Contestant is because the books are so different The Candidate s Daughter is a billed as a thriller with a heart The characters in The Contestant Completely heartless However, like the first book, it is a fast moving thriller with well drawn characters and the perfect amount of description to allow you to watch along in your head It definitely pulled me along with the same relent [...]

    5. I m really not sure about this one Raymond is a behavioural analyst, who s career was ruined and after a accident disabled in a wheelchair To make ends meets he becomes a competitor in online competitions, and is fairly successful When a new competition appears, with a 10million prize, he gets drawn into a side of the competition world that is lethal This does get quite violent, but within the context of the book, it s not gratuitous, and makes sense.On the plus side, there s a lot of twists and [...]

    6. Well this was a great ride and a mix between Saw and Headhunters Raymond, a former behavioural analyst who after a hit and run accident leaves him in a wheelchair, is an avid entrant into online competitions This book is really cleverly written and tells the story from a number of the character s viewpoints It makes a refreshing change that none of the characters are likeable and shows the extent to which people will go to knock out the competition in very extreme ways and win that final prize A [...]

    7. This is a seriously good thriller I was absolutely gripped by the story of Raymond, a serial killer who, since an accident left him wheelchair bound, has made a living entering online competitions I find that stories told from the perspective of the bad guy can be hit and miss, but although Raymond is thoroughly despicable, this novel is creepy, chilling and extremely well written basically everything you want in a thriller I loved every page, couldn t wait to find out what happened next and am [...]

    8. On the positive side, this well edited, with only a couple minor errors, which is rare these days The author clearly knows the rules of English grammar Again something that is slipping away The story concept is very good, but lacks zing Every time I tried to read it I fell asleep after a couple chapters Better than a sleeping pill Like her book The Candidates Daughter, there are no likeable characters.

    9. Different kind of a thriller.Treasure hunt and on line give away, contests singing up Getting killed because they were coming close to winning Raymond in the wheel chair, how did he cleaned blood and brain matters from the walls and ceiling, or reached and removed the camera from the ceiling Also after the bombing his wheel chair was mangled but next he was riding, even up the stairs Didn t make sense But I did finish reading.

    10. Terrible novel I am not sure how the ratings for this are so high, as I found the plot to not only be boring and uneventful, but also highly stereotypical and predictable Many of the events in the novel were completely ridiculous and unbelievable I would recommend everyone stay away from this unless you are looking to be amazed at how bad a book can be and still get published.

    11. The story seemed a bit too full of details and improbable events The story itself was a bit hard to follow as the flow kept getting disturbed The view from different characters was interesting, but overall it seemed as if the author kept getting in the way of the story.

    12. Not sure I ll be entering any online competitions, any time soon after reading this book An interesting journey into the lives of those that make entering competitions than just a hobby Makes you wonder whether this could happen in real life Thrilling or just plain scary

    13. Thrilling and full of deadly twistsRaymond was a man that was dealt a bad hand in life He entered a simple online contest that turned out to be deadly Not knowing what he was up against he took a chance that could cost him his life.

    14. What a fast RideThis was a great book It kept me guessing to the end with twists and turns than a slinky If you like fast paced thrill rides without the nausea, then you will LOVE this book

    15. Some what confusing novel about a group of online contestants in treasure hunts and other contests for prizes who take the challenges way too seriously with murder being one way to eliminate competition.

    16. A treasure hunt run for psychopaths, people willing to kill for 10 million It got long, chasing each other to kill the other contestants to be the big winner Only ok.

    17. Great readCould not put it down I can t wait to see if Raymond comes back, he is the guy you love to hate

    18. GoodGoodinteresting read, easy to follow yet involved plot page Turner enjoyed most all the characters give it a try if crime thrillers are your thing.

    19. Long in ToothYes, this book had many great moments I would start to get bored, then it would grab me again Glad I finally finished it, though.

    20. Very good.I liked this book but the subject matter wasn t very interesting and not the type of book I usually read.
