Publisher Description

Now a Netflix original movie, this deeply scary and intensely unnerving novel follows a couple in the midst of a twisted unraveling of the darkest unease. You will be scared. But you won’t know why…

I’m thinking of ending things. Once this thought arrives, it stays. It sticks. It lingers. It’s always there. Always.

Jake once said, “Sometimes a thought is closer to truth, to reality, than an action. You can say anything, you can do anything, but you can’t fake a thought.”

And here’s what I’m thinking: I don’t want to be here.

In this smart and intense literary suspense novel, Iain Reid explores the depths of the human psyche, questioning consciousness, free will, the value of relationships, fear, and the limitations of solitude. Reminiscent of Jose Saramago’s early work, Michel Faber’s cult classic Under the Skin, and Lionel Shriver’s We Need to Talk about Kevin, your dread and unease will mount with every passing page” (Entertainment Weekly) of this edgy, haunting debut. Tense, gripping, and atmospheric, I’m Thinking of Ending Things pulls you in from the very first page…and never lets you go.

A good read

It was really good honestly I couldn’t stop reading. I do feel the ending was rushed and I was like what?? I don’t get it… until I got it. Honestly I still think it is worth the read!

Well written but horrible story.

This book was well written, but it seemed as the author was more intent on being "literary" rather than providing a good story. It was dark yet boring. Couldn't wait to finish it, not because I wanted to see what happened but so I could move on to a better book. Don't waste your money.

Good book overall-ending was messy

The first half of the book was very addicting as you dive into this couple’s relationship dynamic and the main character’s questions around relationships in general. The dialogue is good and the actions are suspenseful. However, when you enter the high school scene it gets very messy. The explanation of her surroundings and what comes next is rudely interrupted with more questions and inner dialogue that didn’t feel like it fit in the part of the book it was in. It got rocky and the writing flow just didn’t make sense to me.
The twist was pretty cool which is why I give it 4 stars, but the delivery took away a star.
