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.

Drama thriller

I loved it. Sure in the beginning it was much slower but you still can’t put it down. The end had me going nuts! I couldn’t believe what I was reading. Did not expect it at all. If you like drama then this is it for you. No it’s not horror thriller dont expect that.

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.

Long resolution

Why are all her conclusions SO UNBEARABLY LONG?
