Summary:

SOON TO BE A NETFLIX ORIGINAL FILM DIRECTED BY CHARLIE KAUFMAN
AN NPR BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR 2016

“I’m Thinking of Ending Things is one of the best debut novels I’ve ever read. Iain Reid has crafted a tight, ferocious little book, with a persistent tenor of suspense that tightens and mounts toward its visionary, harrowing final pages” (Scott Heim, award-winning author of Mysterious Skin and We Disappear).

I’m thinking of ending things. Once this thought arrives, it stays. It sticks. It lingers. It’s always there. Always.

Jake once said, “Sometimes a thought is closer to truth, to reality, than an action. You can say anything, you can do anything, but you can’t fake a thought.”

And here’s what I’m thinking: I don’t want to be here.

In this “dark and compelling…unputdownable” (Booklist, starred review) literary thriller, debut novelist Iain Reid explores the depths of the human psyche, questioning consciousness, free will, the value of relationships, fear, and the limitations of solitude. Reminiscent of Jose Saramago’s early work, Michel Faber’s cult classic Under the Skin, and Lionel Shriver’s We Need to Talk about Kevin, I’m Thinking of Ending Things is an edgy, haunting debut. Tense, gripping, and atmospheric, this novel “packs a big psychological punch with a twisty story line and an ending that will leave readers breathless” (Library Journal, starred review).

    I read some rave reviews and I love psychological thrillers, so I thought this would be right up my alley. I was disappointed all around. The narrator's voice really irked me for some reason--her voice inflection was difficult to follow at times. The storyline was confusing and just when I'd think I knew what was happening, it got even more confusing. I still don't get the ending--I think I know what it means, but it wasn't a satisfactory, "all the pieces came together" type of ending in the slightest. I was very disappointed and wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

    This was terrible. Im sorry for the author but it felt more like a vessel to put random thoughts and not a story. It should have been free.

    The book was not that great, I couldn't follow it. I listened for at least 2 hours and still had no idea what was going on.
