So, i finished this book in a day when work was not too hectic. It's engaging and you will keep on reading to find out why is the character doing what he is doing. But, sadly the climax just doesn't keep up to the expectations. Nevertheless, it's not a bad read. Little creepy but I felt that the negative character sort of lost its soul towards the end. Would give it a 3.5 star.

Hard to put down psychological thriller!

Usually when I read a mystery or thriller that's not very good I skim or skip to the last chapters to see the "twist." This one was so poorly written with such unbelievable and underdeveloped characters I didn't even care what the "twist" was. The author didn't do a very good job researching supporting details of the plot and it's just all so unbelievable - for example, the idea that Bangkok has beaches is laughable.

This book takes it too far. It is incredibly disturbing. Could not finish reading. I felt SO uncomfortable and just disgusted by the actions of one of the characters. I did not like the turn this book took whatsoever, and I read a lot of crime/mystery books and watch true crime shows so I have a thick skin. I think what puts me off the most is that this is fiction that someone spent time coming up with.

This is one of my favorite books of all time. Very hard to read in places as it is so horrifying. Has an incredible plot and will written characters. Would totally recommend this but be prepared it will get stuck in your head!

this book is messed up on a supreme level. it was a little confusing, but once you understand just exactly what's happening, it's terrifying.

The writing is so basic and the characters are so bland that I am forcing myself to read this. The first scene is the most inane dinner party with zero tension. It’s obvious something is off in the perfect world, but it could have been shown in one page — not an entire scene of eye-roll-worthy conversation.

I’m only going to power through for a writer’s group discussion.

This book kept me engaged the whole way through. I read it in one day and couldn't put it down! Good characters and a great story line. At times I felt that the circumstances were just as hopeless as Grace felt, and thought it was a clever ending.
