  1. Jake and his girlfriend are on a road trip to go and see Jake s parents at their rural farm.The point of view is from the girlfriend and inside her head we find out that she is thinking of ending things with Jake Jake is perfect and smart and all that stuff but it s time to just move on Except for the fact that we are on our way to the whole meet the parents thing Once we get to the farmwe get to meet the parents.With a smidge of this Then we find out some stuff and thangs I m totally trying to [...]


  2. Holy shit that was brilliant What a mind f ck I have to tell you that I thought this was going to be a 1 or 2 star book for me until the very end I mean like the last 15 minutes of it I m not sure whether to give this book 4 or 5 Stars I m going with 4 for now because the book was filled with so many things that made my stomach turn I get why the journey was like this now I m so ready to hit the fifth star button I listened to the audio version of the novel I think this might have played out bet [...]


  3. I don t write a lot of reviews where I give a book under 3 stars I d like to think its because I typically know what type of book I like to read, but every now and again I get it completely wrong and I have to write an embarrassing review on why I disliked a novel that everyone else seems to rave about This was one of those books I was immediately requesting this one on NetGalley the second I saw it, as it sounded right up my alley Creepy, suspenseful, vague YES However, I ll say that my not lik [...]


  4. I listened to the audio of this one and at first I didn t find it too bad A woman and her boyfriend, Jake are on their way to his parents for dinner She is like the title saysing of ending things You will be scared But you won t know why That quote from the book is very true I was so confused and felt very uncomfortable for almost the entire book I think this book might be too smart for me because I still don t think I understand it I wonder if reading the actual book would have made a differenc [...]


  5. The back of this book merely promises that you will be afraid and not know why There are no other details Funnily enough, that is the most accurate summation of this novel possible.I don t want to say too much about this novel, because the puzzle and atmosphere are really the ghoulish, psychological fun of it It s a deeply unsettling novel that s the point of it, and as such, it s brief I finished it in a couple of hours.It s certainly not for everyone Read the first chapter you can find preview [...]


  6. Holy crap on a cracker I put off reading this book for such a long time because there were so many negative reviews and I don t see why I freaking loved this book It blew me right way I got if from the Overdrive library and I m going to be buying it to keep Okay, so like the narrator is this woman that I have no idea who she is, name wise Unless I missed it, they never say in the book She s on a road trip with her boyfriend Jake He is taking her to meet his parents for the first time and they li [...]


  7. WINNER OF BEST AUDIOBOOK 2016 Dig it This book is a perfect example of negative reviews selling a book Specifically Shelbs sand Kells sreviews I had to see what all the fuss was about So, yeah, the negative reviews of this book sold me I paid money for this book based solely on negative reviews Some authors need to hear that They need to let that shit sink in Are Shelbs and Kells stupid for not getting this book Nope And I ll explain why.Iain Reid s I m Thinking of Ending Things is 224 pages in [...]


  8. Oooooh, this is a tough one to review, because it s not going to be for everyone, and I also don t want to give too much away It s a slim volume that packs such a WALLOP that creeps up on you, it would be super easy to spoil it for someone if you weren t careful Many people have this filed as Mystery or Psychological Thriller and it s sorta a blend of those, but way closer to Psychological Horror for me than anything else It s an unsettling, paranoid mindfuck that at first appearances seems pret [...]


  9. Yep All of them Stars, that is This psychological horror novel clicked with me immediately The level of dread and unease were almost completely off the scale before it was over The tours of the barn and the abandoned school were fantastic An instant recognition of a perfect stranger, whispers, the Caller, there is only one question view spoiler What if we are all just alone hide spoiler Thought is reality, context is everything It s not surprising that the ratings are all over the place with thi [...]


  10. the universe is so strange i was sick for a couple weeks koff, koff and for a few of those days, i was too sick to even read i know it was DIRE , so i watched a lot of movies, including one that i did not have high expectations for at all, but i was curious about its well publicized OMG twist ending and it was pretty bad but i was glad to have seen it so i could discover the surprise on my own and not come across it on the careless internet and once i could read again, but was still too sick for [...]


  11. Seriously, what the hell was this I think what I want is for someone to know me Really know me Know me better than anyone else and maybe even me Isn t that why we commit to another In Iain Reid s I m Thinking of Ending Things I ll admit I thought of ending my reading of this book than a few times , an unnamed woman is on a road trip with her boyfriend, Jake They ve been dating six weeks, and she enjoys his intelligence, his sense of humor, his intensity, and the way he surprises her with simple [...]


  12. I m thinking of spoiling things, or to be specific, I m thinking that anything I say about this could spoil it, so I will just say that I read this in one sitting and I was intrigued 4 stars.


  13. My immediate reaction upon finishing What was that It started out with a certain amount of promise, then the last 150 pages just rambled into an incoherent ending Either that, or I didn t get the memo Update If you re spoiler averse, don t read this Readers have a plethora of reviews available to them which dance around this novel so completely that the innocent and unwary can t assess whether it s a book they d like I m here to help Really I initially had difficulty identifying why I found I m [...]


  14. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum The following quote pretty much sums up my dream thriller My story is not like a movie, I ll say It s not heart stopping or intense or bloodcurdling or graphic or violent No jump scares To me, these qualities aren t usually scary Something that disorients, that unsettles what s taken for granted, something that disturbs and disrupts reality that s scary Oooooooooo so much excite Unfortunately the above referenced quote occurred at the 83% mark of I m Thin [...]


  15. I finished I m Thinking of Ending Things then I went back to the beginning and read it again.You will want to read this book than once Or you ll want to hide it in the depths of the earth never to be seen again Probably won t be that much inbetween those two things and the range of reviews would seem to back me on this.Me I m going to tell everyone I know to read this book then read it again.It scared the living crap out of me but no, don t ask Iain Reid has written, in my humble opinion, a mas [...]


  16. Sincere appreciation is extended to Simon Schuster and Edelwiess for providing this e galley for my reading pleasure and honest review To be published June 14, 2016.I m Thinking of Ending Things is the kind of book that is difficult to describe as well as unequivocally recommend It will appeal to a niche group that likes a well constructed psychological read It will not be for everyone but for those of us who like a dark, brooding tale, it will be a winner.It didn t start out that way Let me go [...]


  17. This was a very quick read and it kept me in suspense until the very end That s the good news The bad news I don t know what the hell happened I don t know how it ended Seriously In an bout of frustration, I Google searched spoilers I found an entire web site dedicated to discussing this very issue Even the people that loved the book were, for the most part, confused The general consensus seems to be that if you read the book twice, it ll all become very clear Here s the thing I m not genius but [...]


  18. This was good, but not great It took me a really, really long time to get into it and for such a short book, that s not exactly ideal.


  19. JUST POSTED MY REVIEW There are certain things in life, not very many, that are real, confirmed cures for rainy days, for loneliness Puzzles are like that We each have to solve our own Iain Reid s fiction debut is unsettling, disturbing, and nerve wrecking, an atmospheric novel about the fragility of the human condition I m Thinking of Ending Things will draw you in from the first page and drive you crazy trying to figure out what in the world is going on The most important things are perpetuall [...]


  20. One thing s for sure I ll never hear Hey Good Lookin again with having chills go down my spine Iain Reid s novel is not for everyone I think that you will either hate it, or, as I did, love it Some reviewers termed it a mind f k I have to agree It is the type of book, that to appreciate all the nuances, you have to read twice Even though my TBR is long, I did go back and reread many pages in order to get my head around it This review will be different because I can t say much without giving too [...]


  21. It s so difficult to review this book without explaining the book It s a short quick read and that s good because you might want to read it twice At the least, go back and read the italicized chapters separately I think even telling how the book made me feel will give it away.Reviews are divided the book is unique and clever If you read it, I hope you get it.



  22. Not sure what to say about this one Very suspenseful, moody and atmospheric, with a sense of impending doom Well written and very odd in a good way It s a fairly quick and engrossing read.I think you will probably get the gist of what is going on early in the book, but the exact way it plays out isn t clear until the end I put quotes on clear for a reason clear as MUD I am pretty sure I understand the end, but I don t know that it was executed as well as it could have been Might be a cool movie, [...]


  23. Entsprechen deine Gedanken tats chlich der Realit t oder doch nicht Nach der Lekt re dieses Buches hatte ich wirklich das dringende Bed rfnis mit jemanden zu reden oder mich in einer Lesegruppe auszutauschen Beides ist Freitagnacht im Bett nur begrenzt m glich M chte man sich vergewissern, ob die eigenen Vermutungen stimmen, bl ttere man zur ck auf START Das verschafft Gewissheit und eine ruhigere Nacht Ich hab mich entschlossen 4 Sterne zu geben, weil ich es schlichtweg genial finde, wie hier e [...]


  24. 4.5 starsOoooooooooooooh YES Iain Reid, you got me You reeled me in with your intelligent writing, got me to wade in those murky waters with your off kilter narrator, got my imagination going with the image of The Caller , freaked me out good in that farmhouse with those dead lambs and chickens who eat their own eggs, and kept it going all the way through until the merciless ending, where I said PARDON Now I need to read this all over again.This is Reid s debut fiction novel, and he has truly do [...]


  25. I really enjoyed this twisted little read.I can absolutely see why it s a love it or hate it read I can also see why everyone says to go into it blind It s one of those books that really benefit from the reader knowing hardly anything.I felt real tension building in me as I was reading this book I desperately needed to keep reading, to find out what was going to happen.The ending, oh my god the ending I kind of half figured it out, but got it the wrong way round If you ve read the book, you ll k [...]


  26. Weirdest little book of 2016 so far with a superbly ambiguous and most apt title At 224 pages, this can easily be read in one sitting and maybe the best way to enjoy it My initial reaction on finishing this was too rude to be repeated here, and I was all set for a 2 stars rating Then I went back to the first chapter and went over it again, and that s when I started to appreciate the real brilliance of this As the road trip in the cold and dark to the remoteness of the parents farm started, it wa [...]



  27. Thought is reality Actions can be faked.It s hard to talk about this book without talking about its Big Twist Ending, which, depending on who you ask, is either stupefying or trite, a sharp slap in the face or a damp squib For me well, at a certain point I saw it coming And for what it s worth, I think it s a good twist But that is not why I loved this book, and I think it s a shame the twist seems to swallow up all other discussion of its many strengths.The narrator, a nameless woman, is in a n [...]
