I'm Thinking of Ending Things
|That was probably the weirdest book I have ever read.
And I loved it. This short little book packs a punch.
You are scared the entire time and yet you have no clue why.
Jake is on a road trip with his girlfriend. Little does Jake know that she is thinking of ending it. Narrated by the girlfriend, we are taken into a horribly creepy tale about relationships and the secrets that they hold.
Now I have read mixed reviews of this book and I will say this. Yes, I did feel confused at times and had no clue WTF was going on. And that in itself can turn off even the most intelligent people. However, the unnerving atmosphere had me gasping for air. And the ending.
I saw this book on some random list of horror novels and honestly was sold when I read the synopsis. You know those reoccurring dreams people have? Well, mine is being locked and stalked in a high school at night. Really. Hence, why I wanted to read this book despite the not so great reviews.
I had a feeling I knew where the book was going halfway through because I felt like I have been in that frame of mind before. It made me think. It made cry. Bravo Iain Reid
