The Wheel of Justice (Review)

April 20, 2012

The Wheel of Justice” has received the following review by Nena at Goodreads:

Nena rated it 4 of 5 stars false

Kindle Edition:

“This is a really short story but excellently done. The author shows true creativity and imagination with the idea of a televised game show where criminals of the worst kind are executed in living color before a live studio audience after prospective contestants vie for a chance at the Wheel by answering trivia questions relating to crime and justice. The gameshow itself reminded me of a cross between Wheel of Fortune, The Price is Right and Jeopardy. There is even a spokesmodel in the mold of Vanna White.

Each segment of the game show is interupted by commercials which are hilarious. Particularly the home security commercial. I actually laughed out loud when reading these commercials.

There are lots of things going on here, one of which is a satirical look at just how low we are willing to go in the name of television entertainment. This is most likely the next step in the evolution of reality tv, it’s almost inevitable. Also, the way this country is going, it would not be that far a stretch to see the government taking a liking to game show executions as a way to deal with prison overcrowding. It’s so cost effective.

I think I would best describe this author as being a genius and this short story ingenious, creative and a really fun read.”
