Disappointing ending - twist came out of left field and was pretty unsatisfying

This one had its hooks in me pretty quick and it had a lot of extra elements that appealed to me personally, like Psychology and Greek mythology.

An average read! Can't see what a hype was all about.

This is a true psychological thriller. As Theo's investigation into the mind of a silent, but tormented young woman progresses, we see different sides to the central event, culminating in what is truly a masterful and well-crafted plot twist. You won't be disappointed!

As saturated as the "psychological thriller" sub-genre is now, this particular book I thought was a standout. This might be the only book where I literally said out loud "a-ha!" when I realized what the twist in the story was. Recommend!

What a roller-coaster of a ride! Psychological thriller par excellence. Really looking forward to reading what Alex Michaelides writes next

I loved the suspense in this book, a new kind of twist. I would read it again.

Lots of interesting comments about this book - from waste of time to just great. Found it easy to read and intriguing - really do not see how some of these people saw this ending coming. Guess you will have to read and come to your own conclusion.

I found this to be a page turner filled with suspense and elements of a psychological thriller.
