Genre: Thriller, mystery
3.5 stars because of the ending, otherwise I would have given this a four.
Interesting read and an excellent use of an unreliable narrator. The book was well written, well paced, so that the reveals didn’t seem to come from no where, but weren’t too expected either. However, the ending was entirely cliche and expected, and it rendered a greater part of the book and it’s exploration of certain characters pointless. And really? We get an epic bad guy monologue at the end that makes no sense? The first 3/4 of the book were riveting because of the mystery, but also because of how trapped we became in the narrators’s minds. The ending, however, did not live up to not only the hype of the “amazing twist” I’d been promised, but also the first 3/4 of the novel.
