"As you will see, it’s an incredible story—of that there is no doubt.
Whether you believe it or not is up to you."

This book. It's my kind of thriller. The kind that immediately draws you in, keeps you hooked, and then blows your mind with a twist so unexpected that it leaves you reeling. And thinking. And wondering.

Especially thinking through all those thoughts & inconsistencies that crossed your mind, while you were reading the story, but for some reason you never paid attention to. And wondering why on earth were you instead focusing on and evaluating the red-herrings.

But I don't think it's just me not paying careful attention. Because I think even if I was paying attention, I might not have guessed the final twist. And it's not even all about the twist really, because I personally was more fascinated with the psychology behind the why.

All in all: A fascinating concept that is masterfully executed. Totally unputdownable.
