*4.5 stars*...Sickeningly delicious storytelling!
Boom. That ending. That "WTF-That-Ending" heard 'round the world, or at least, the social media book-reading community.
It feels like this author just said, "Know what Screw this, I'm doin' it", and then she did it.
Seriously. She WENT for it.
It's been a while since I've been legitimately shocked as a reader, and I don't care how much this ending can be reduced down to utter nonsense, I'm embracing the hell out of it and you can't stop me.
Because the fact is, when I swiped those last few virtual pages, my tired eyes narrowed, my offended guts twisted, my face took on a just-sucked-lemon contortion, and my lips curled into a tight little opening that spewed a whispered what the fuck declaration. And there is was.
Sarah Pinborough's writing is strong, and she paints a picture well without having to tell us the colors she's using. There were no holes in this plot, no loose ends left untied. Everything made sense, even when it somehow didn't. The perspectives shifted between characters, and the narratives sometimes switched from first and third person at random. It's as though this story unveils itself from every angle possible, and yet still it goes and throws me off my feet.
I know some readers couldn't get past some of the farfetched scenarios in this one, and I get it. I really do. I'm not one who readily ingests an over-the-top idea if there's not enough conviction behind it. In fact, I typically hate when I'm forced to suspend too much belief for an idea to "work". But this story was clever enough to become an exception.
I can't tell you details of the plot because I am your friend and I won't ruin it for you. But I can tell you this: Soften your critical eye (if possible) when going into this one, so you can just enjoy the journey. Because it really is one hell of a ride...
