I'm Thinking of Ending Things


Prefer your spooky with a side of sublime surrealism? The narrator of this eerie novel is thinking of ending things with her recent boyfriend — if only she can get through a visit to his parents’ remote home. But as a snow storm complicates an already fraught dinner, the night turns from tense to utterly terrifying. I won’t say anymore. Whatever ending you’re expecting, you’re wrong. It’s a masterpiece of misdirection, amorphous narration, and utter horror. Okay? Trust me. Whew. -Evelyn Maguire
