Praise

“I’m Thinking of Ending Things is an ingeniously twisted nightmare road trip through the fragile psyches of two young lovers. My kind of  fun!” -Academy-award winning writer Charlie Kaufman

“The boldest and most original literary thriller to appear in some time. . . In addition to Cronenberg, the ghost of Stephen King hovers over these pages.” –Chicago Tribune

“Your dread and unease will mount with every passing page of this relationship tale.” – Entertainment Weekly

“This is a deliciously frightening novel, Reid has a light, idiosyncratic touch but never lets his vice-like grip of suspense slacken for a second. Once finished, you will be hard pressed not to start the whole terrifying journey all over again.” –The Independent

“I’m Thinking of Ending Things is one of the best debut novels I’ve ever read. Iain Reid has crafted a tight, ferocious little book, with a persistent tenor of suspense that tightens and mounts toward its visionary, harrowing final pages.” -Scott Heim, author of Mysterious Skin and We Disappear

“An addictive metaphysical investigation into the nature of identity, one which seduces and horrifies in equal measure. Reid masterfully explores the perversity of loneliness and somehow also creates a very entertaining thriller. I found myself yelling at the characters to put their feet on the pedal and drive.” -Heather O’Neill, author of
Lullabies for Little Criminals and Daydreams of Angels

“Here are some near-certainties about I’m Thinking of Ending Things. Number One: You’re going to read it fast. Over the course of an afternoon or an evening. The momentum is unstoppable—once you start, you won’t be able to stop. And Two: once you race to the end and  understand the significance of those final pages, you won’t be able to stop thinking about it. This novel will find a spot in your heart and head and it will live there—for days, weeks, months, or (in my case) the rest of your life. Yes. It really is that good.” -Craig Davidson (aka Nick Cutter), author of Cataract City and The Deep

“Iain Reid’s I’m Thinking of Ending Things is an engaging and bizarre dialogue between normality and weirdness, where ‘normal’ equals dishonesty and ‘weird’ is synonymous with vulnerability. In a novel this twisted it shouldn’t come as a surprise that its ending is even stranger than the narrative route that takes us there…but it does. Reid’s novel is a road trip to the heart of creepyness.” – Sjón, author of The Blue FoxFrom the Mouth of the Whale, and The Whispering Muse

“This is the most unsettling book I have ever read…deliciously sinister, dark, and harrowing.” –Book Riot

“Iain Reid’s book is somewhat of a philosophical tract as well as a novel. The narrator often muses over big life-and-death ideas such as the one above, but in a disarming way that renders these thoughts to feel like a seamless part of the narrative. It’s an incredibly hard thing to achieve, and Reid has done it to perfection: introducing ideas
to the reader without taking them out of the narrative.” –Electric Literature

“A superbly crafted psychological thriller, with forays into the metaphysical, which promises to keep you up at night.” –Macleans

“I picked up I’m Thinking of Ending Things one afternoon this past summer at a bookstore outside a movie theatre, planning to read the first chapter or so before my matinee started. Two and a half hours later, I’d missed the film entirely…” – Hazlitt

“I’m Thinking of Ending Things rocked my world. This slim novel about a man on a trip with his unhappy girlfriend is a total mindbender, and when it ended, I immediately started flipping back through it to re-experience old scenes with new knowledge. Don’t risk spoiling it for yourself by reading reviews; just be brave and buckle up.” -Powell’s
Books

“I’m Thinking of Ending Things is an utterly compelling modern Gothic that stakes its claim in the inner precincts of horror. Reid builds tension the way Edgar Allen Poe builds brick walls in his basement.” -Wayne Grady, author of Emancipation Day

“Smart, dangerous and spooky as hell. Iain Reid takes you on a harrowing road trip that keeps you riveted until the final destination.” -Brian
Francis, author of Fruit and Natural Order
