Product description

Review

“An ingeniously twisted nightmare road trip through the fragile psyches of two young lovers. My kind of fun!” (Charlie Kaufman, director of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Adaptation)

“An addictive metaphysical investigation into the nature of identity, one which seduces and horrifies in equal measure. Reid masterfully explores the perversity of loneliness and somehow also creates a very entertaining thriller. I found myself yelling at the characters to put their feet on the pedal and drive.” (HEATHER O’NEILL, author of Lullabies for Little Criminals and Daydreams of Angels)

“Here are some near-certainties about I’m Thinking of Ending Things. Number One: You’re going to read it fast. Over the course of an afternoon or an evening. The momentum is unstoppable—once you start, you won’t be able to stop. And Two: once you race to the end and understand the significance of those final pages, you won’t be able to stop thinking about I’m Thinking of Ending Things. It will find a spot in your heart and head and it will live there—for days, weeks, months, or (in my case) the rest of your life. Yes. It really is that good.” (CRAIG DAVIDSON (aka Nick Cutter), author of Cataract City and The Deep)

“An utterly compelling modern Gothic that stakes its claim in the inner precincts of horror. Reid builds tension the way Edgar Allan Poe builds brick walls in his basement.” (WAYNE GRADY, author of Emancipation Day)

“One of the best debut novels I’ve ever read. Iain Reid has crafted a tight, ferocious little book, with a persistent tenor of suspense that tightens and mounts toward its visionary, harrowing final pages.” (SCOTT HEIM, author of Mysterious Skin and We Disappear)

“In a novel this engaging, bizarre, and twisted, it shouldn't come as a surprise that its ending is even stranger than the narrative route that takes us there . . . but it does. Reid's novel is a road trip to the heart of creepyness.” (SJÓN, author of The Blue Fox, From the Mouth of the Whale, and The Whispering Muse)

“Reid’s tightly crafted tale toys with the nature of identity and comes by its terror honestly, building a wall of intricately layered psychological torment so impenetrable it's impossible to escape.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“These characters are carefully developed and the plot takes some frightening turns, leading to a shocking ending. The construct of this book is brilliant and unusual and should appeal to fans of psychological thrillers, as well as to some horror fans. A dark and compelling debut novel, it is a most uncomfortable read but utterly unputdownable.” (Booklist)

“Reid fuses suspense with philosophy, psychology, and horror in his unsettling first novel.… Capped with an ending that will shock and chill, this twisty tale invites multiple readings.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“This slim first novel packs a big psychological punch with a twisty story line and an ending that will leave readers breathless.” (Library Journal (starred review))
