Review: Iain Reid - I'm Thinking of Ending Things
I’m starting to run into problems. Of the books I read, most of them are chosen at a monthly rate. I mostly put the books aside that I’m going to read in the next month. When I run out of books, I pick them off my to-read list. My very long to-read list. Many times, I can’t choose!
And so I find books that have been on that list for a long time. Like I’m Thinking of Ending Things. This one had gotten on my list because Goodreads has tagged it as a horror book. As a fan of the genre, I had to read it. Here’s my review!
I started this book without any expectations. Like I said, I mostly needed just something to read. From the first sentence, I was into the story. I’m Thinking of Ending Things. It was really hard to put down this book at times. In the beginning it was okay, but near the end I was so gripped by it. I had to finish it to know what was going on!
Even though you don’t know a lot about the narrator, you soon get this “watch out, girl” feeling. You’re really living the life she’s leading. The story builds up to a point where the author punches you in the face. Or at least, that’s the feeling you get. Well done, Iain Reid. Well done.
This book is worth 4 stars for me. Especially the ending. I loved it. I had the urge to re-read the book instantly. That doesn’t happen much. Now I’m really looking forward to what more Iain Reid has to offer. Can’t wait to read again!
