What should be a cozy and fun-filled weekend deep in the English countryside takes a sinister turn in Ruth Ware’s suspenseful, compulsive, and darkly twisted psychological thriller.

Sometimes the only thing to fear…is yourself.

When reclusive writer Leonora is invited to the English countryside for a weekend away, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. But as the first night falls, revelations unfold among friends old and new, an unnerving memory shatters Leonora’s reserve, and a haunting realization creeps in: the party is not alone in the woods.

Takes too long

I read this straight through, but mainly to find out how it ended. Scenes were drawn out too long, and like Melanie, I just wanted to leave early. And the last sentence of the book was confusing, at least to me.

Predictable

The book moved quickly and kept my attention. However, I felt the plot line was completely predictable. From the "big secret" the main character was hiding for years, to the final murderer, I called it all before it happened because it just wasn't original.
Also, there was a lot of extras that had no point to the book. Example: Papa Begby? Matt? Cocaine? There was just a lot of extras that were added in and I was waiting for a point to why they were there, but they never came. Even in the end, having Matt email Nora, there wasn't a reason. It was just filler. And there was a LOT of filler. I found myself skipping paragraphs at a time because there was just no need for them.
Decent book, ok writing, predictable throughout and pointless fillers. Better luck next time.
