I don't want to ruin this book for anyone, but I found the ending to be truly awful. This book was incredibly suspenseful and original in its story line, but I hated they way I felt when it was over. I'm unsettled and not in a good way. I didn't find the end to be clever, but written specifically for shock value. I hated it. I wish I had never spent my time listening to this book. I'm saddened by it.
