This book was 100% unputdownable. The ending of this story will completely blow your mind, I read a fair share of thrillers, this book I wasn't able to figure and it made my jaw drop. Although this book is a little over 300 pages, it was a very fast read! I cannot wait for Alex Michaelides to release more novels, definitely one to watch out for. I wish I could give this book a million stars.
