This book has caused major hype, and it's been a great read for those who crave the genre that Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn created. It is coming to theater near you very soon, and if you've seen the trailer, you'll understand me when I say this is one story (may it be on screen or on paper) to watch for. For those of you who have not seen the amazing trailer, here it is:
Now, I am seriously not lying when I tell you that I've seen this trailer so many times and I never tire of it. I easily saw it about some 10 times, much enough to hype me into buying and reading this book instead of studying for my finals. Oh yeah, that is how good it is: I ignored studying for finals just to finish this book. Instead of sleeping early for one of the hardest finals in my major, I stayed up reading this book. Not going to lie neither when I say that I also thought about this book while I took this exam!
The plot twist in this book is... amazing. That's all I have to say. The plot twist is something you never expect, taking a turn on the road you least expected it to take. Not to mention the writing of this book was truly great, I sympathized so much with Rachel. I got as angry as Tom. I felt for Anna. I struggled with Megan. I was each and every character, something so very hard to achieve, but totally aced by Hawkins.
I sometimes lost sleep with this book - not for how great it was, although this happened on various occasions -- but for the chills it would give you. It got in my head, and made me scared to be alone. Even though I knew all these characters were made up, the chills I got while reading this book stayed with me while I tried to sleep.
I highly recommend reading this book before you see the movie. Overall, I highly recommend reading this book!
