Book Review: I'm Thinking About Ending Things by Iain Reid

This book was ridiculous. It was crazy. It was completely off-the-wall nuts! I can't even. I JUST CAN'T EVEN!!

And yet, if I am to write a book review, I suppose I must. Let's put it this way. This book is just over 200 pages long, pretty short when you get down to it. The last couple lines of the book pretty much tell you in a sly sort of way that now that you've got a bit of an idea of what the heck just happened, you ought to read it again. Just to see the not-so-obvious big twisty reveal unfold before you. Just to get a handle on what was going on the entire time that was staring you in the face, but you just didn't allow your head to go there while reading it.

Man, this book is chilling! It's spooky to the Nth degree. DO NOT read this if you get nightmares. Or, at least, don't read it late at night if you get nightmares. It's not gory. It's not gross. It's just plain spooky. Everyone acts super weird, totally abnormal, and you're wondering while you are reading this, "How is anything that is going on even remotely normal? Why doesn't this girl just get out and run away? What the heck is going on?"

All this said: 10/10 would read again and I am definitely looking forward to the next Iain Reid book.
