not at all what the description leads you to believe

I am so torn like super frustrated - I hate leaving low reviews and have been fighting myself about this but I honestly didn't like the book and don't feel it was at all what I bought into from the description

I am not a fan of sci-fi and if the conclusion was founded in sci-fi I would not have bought it.

The description was like the book of my dreams - as a psychologist- this was THE BOOK!!! I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and once I started it I was in it!!! I was so excited but then the last like 20-30 pages I was so upset like please don't do this it can't be this.. then it just got worse!!

I hated the ending it felt abrupt, not well explained, and just out of place with the rest of the story and though this was described as a psychological thriller and took place in a mental hospital and was framed to be all about mental illness/ mental health issues etc it was not really at all it was about / is about the supernatural which for me was so disappointing because I was dying to see if I had figured it out / what this was and I was so fully invested! This was just a huge let down for me.

Again, I feel bad because I really did like the start of it and where it could have gone and again the description had me but man the ending was .... horrible and honestly ruined it all. I saw reviews saying this was the scariest thing they have read - it was not scary to me at all I am not even sure what would really illicit fear, some were offended by the terms used and references made that was no issue for me... i hate to leave low marks but this just wasn't what it was advertised to be, and it was so disappointing.

I really want to know / hear what other psychologist or psychiatrist think because I feel like I got invested for different reasons and this led to a bigger disappointment.
