AN NPR BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR 2016 I'm Thinking of Ending Things is one of the best debut vels I've ever read. Iain Reid has crafted a tight, ferocious little book, with a persistent ter 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 velist 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 vel packs a big psychological punch with a twisty story line and an ending that will leave readers breathless (Library Journal, starred review).
