The Westing Game is a very interesting and mysterious book. i felt as though i was watching a movie where i could plainly see all the actors in play. The plot is very original, and reminded me of one of those reality tv shows pitting ordinary people against one another. the Westing Game is about a group of strangers invited to compete against one another to try to find out the reason for the death of a millionaire. this millionaire named Sam Westing left this proposal to sixteen individuals who were invited to live in the Sunset Towers.
Throughout the book, there are many twists and turns which is probably what makes the reader feel so on edge. the infamous idea that a killer is living among the strangers you just met is quite thrilling.
The Westing game makes you want to keep reading until you find out the truth, and while you read, fingers are pointed to all sorts of different people and possibilities. the reader gets the luxury of predicting the outcome of the detective games played by these people.
i recommend this book to anyone who likes movies that keeps you guessing, and novels that don't reveal an obvious cliche ending.
