One of my favorite genres!!! The whole… “surviving in a deserted *area* with a stranger” thing. I LOVE THAT! ‘Cause it’s already sheer torture considering you’re in “survival” mode and in a desperate state, but to have to depend on (or trust!) someone you don’t really know (or know at all), to aid in your survival is even scarier.
Or maybe more exciting. To me? More exciting. ‘Cause WHO the heck wants to be on a deserted island, or stuck in the thick of the rainforest, or be in a dystopian world (where it’s all about survival of the fittest)… alone? To be with someone you don’t know at all, and maybe don’t like or trust, is scary. But to be completely alone? Even scarier, if you ask me. Best with a “partner” but let’s hope he or she is a true teammate.
