    Inhaltsangabe

    In this deeply scary and intensely unnerving debut novel, Jake and a woman known only as "The Girlfriend" are on a drive to visit his parents at their secluded farm. But when Jake leaves "The Girlfriend" stranded at an abandoned high school, what follows is a twisted unraveling of the darkest unease, an exploration into psychological frailty, and an ending as suspenseful as The Usual Suspects and as haunting as Misery.

    Deeply scary and intensely unnerving, Iain Reid's debut novel is a tightening spiral of a story about a woman's uncertainty of her relationship with her boyfriend, Jake. After an uncomfortable and confusing trip to meet Jake's parents at their isolated farmhouse, reality unravels, and events spin out of control when Jake and "The Girlfriend" make an unscheduled stop at an abandoned high school.

    Part murder mystery, part psychological thriller, I'm Thinking of Ending Things is about doubt, psychological fragility, and the lengths we'll go to avoid the truth. As twisted as Shutter Island, as suspenseful as Under the Skin, and as atmospheric as The Sisters Brothers, Reid's breakout literary thriller is sure to keep listeners guessing until the last minute.

    Sadly as underwhelming as the movie

    After all the hype surrounding the movie, we watched it a couple of months ago and were incredibly disappointed – it clearly considered itself to be quite deep and clever, while not really diving below the surface of any subject and instead resorting to name-dropping of other, better writers and thinkers. Digging around online, I saw that many who loved the book felt similarly let down by the movie, so I gave it a try myself. However, I don’t feel that the original boasts any layer of depth beyond what we’ve seen on screen. Many of the narrator’s supposedly deep or eye-opening thoughts and ideas revolve around subjects and reach conclusions that any introspective person is likely to have reached on their own at some point in their life. And perhaps that’s one reason for this story’s popularity – it pleasantly tickles the ego to find one’s own, often mundane ideas presented as deeply philosophical and deserving of artistic representation. A story that can offer neither an engaging plot nor any new concepts or ideas feels like a waste of my time.

    As an aside, I am heartily sick of horror/thriller stories whose frightening element can be summed up as “mental illness”.

    What I will give this is that I enjoyed Candace Thaxton’s performance.

    Great story

    After I watched the movie I had to check out the source. The book added a lot to the over all experience.

    The story really sticks with you I'm still thinking about its true meaning. There is a lot of subtext to discover.
