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.

Approved!!

Overall, the book was a good one! Personally I don’t think it was WOOOOW but i did enjoy reading it! At first, without giving any spoilers away it did take a while to hook my attention. I was a little disappointed at first because i felt like it was giving me nothing to hang on too. Once I reached chapter 7 and on things immediately got wayyyyy better! Then, the last chapter has you feeling like hmmmmm? That’s it? But, nonetheless it was a good book. If you like suspense and mystery then this is the book for you. I love how the author describes things and makes you feel a certain type of away as you’re reading. You can really visualize it and feel it!

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.

Ridiculously predictable

Sadly predictable, elementary writing. Colossal waste of $10 and time.
