Publisher's Summary

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.

What a ride! This is a must read!

You will read the summary and think you have an idea what this book will be like. YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO GET INTO! This book will stay in your head long after you put it down. It's not for everyone, I'm sure. It's creepy, bizarre, philosophical and really makes you use your brain! It's unsettling but in a good way in my opinion. Again, not for everyone but if you like something creepy and bizarre this is for you!

An ending I never saw coming

This audiobook was 10 different layers of conflicting emotions. Twists and turns and a last chapter I never saw coming. The banter between the two main characters was intelligent and witty. The backstory was told beautifully. As it went along I definitely got engrossed in the storyline but I would never have guessed how it ended. The narrator did a great job and the story was told well with great inflection and emotions that were believable. If you’re looking for something different, a challenge to see if you can figure it out, this audio is for you.
