I'm Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid
In the beginning it seems like a simple story about a couple heading out on a road trip for the narrator to meet her boyfriend's parents. They are still fairly new in the relationship and she isn't sure if she wants to continue on or break up. Maybe meeting his parents isn't the best idea. Plus, she's been getting these bizarre phone calls that are starting to scare her. She doesn't know if she should tell her boyfriend, or the police and the calls are becoming more frequent.
Then it starts getting strange. Strange. Super, super strange. I can't say a lot more without spoiling it, but the last quarter of the book takes you on a lot of twists and turns.
I read most of the book in one day, so it is a quick read. I've read a lot of other reviews where people said they finished it and then went back to the beginning and read it again to try to make sense of it all. It is a suspenseful, fun read and your mind will be reeling when you are done. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, then give this a quick read. It certainly won't be for everyone, but I think you'll have some fun with it. Then talk to me about it, so I can figure things out!
