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.

This book is actually quite charming - the development of the characters is pretty amazing, as well. And the ending? I never saw it coming!

Kind of dark about a psychiatrist and a patient- a surprise ending. Recommend for book club, a real page turner.

I enjoyed this book! It was a quick read and I did not expect the twist at the end.

Just like a few of the other comments, totally formulaic and boring. Waste of time. Thought it would end a bit more unpredictably.

I loved this book. I found it to be a real page turner. The ending took me totally by surprise.

Another disappointment of a highly-touted book. Sorry I wasted my time.

Make another choice! Totally forgettable. Predictable, including what should be a surprising twist. Would make a better 90 minute movie than a book.
