I’m Thinking of Ending Things

As I scroll through the Goodreads Reviews for, I’m Thinking of Ending Things, I couldn’t help but wonder if I read the same thing as all of the reviewers who have left glowing feedback or if I’m completely missing something…? Recently while at work a colleague praised both the book and the movie and while their exact words escaped me I again couldn’t help but wonder if they had actually read the book or if they saw the movie and were just repeating what someone else had told them…

To be perfectly honest, I was not a fan of this novel. In fact I loathed it. I found the repetitive nature of the story to be annoying and the twist when it finally arrived to be lackluster. What I did like about the story was the atmosphere. I loved the cold snowy and gloomy vibes. I loved the creepiness of being in a dark school late at night. But all in all this was a very underwhelming read. What are your thoughts? Did you like it? And if so what was your favorite thing about it?
