solid 4 stars up until about halfway through The book alternates between the prospective of Rebecca Rob s wife and Craig Rob s brother Rob and Rebecca are heading to Craig s wedding and Rob is busy preparing a toast Rob and Craig have had a very strained relationship due to a game of over the top, crazy, life altering pranks they pull back and forth on each other The game was started by their emotionally abusive father who encourages the boys to be cruel to one another for his own sick pleasure.Rebecca has been a part of the family long enough to know how this game has affected both of the brother s lives That is why she is happy to be going to the wedding where she thinks Rob will end the game once and for all with his toast However, tragedy strikes and the story escalates very quickly from there as the game continues.In the beginning, this book was fascinating to read in its own insane way However, the direction it goes at the end of the book is too wildly unbelievable to overlook It was disappointing as I did enjoy the beginning of the book.I think some people will find this book fun to read so don t let my review deter anyone who thought the synopsis sounded interesting It also is a very quick read at under 200 pages so it s worth at least checking out flag 11 likesLike see review View all 5 comments Jayme Excellent review Since I prefer plausible endings though, will

sibling rivalry, most often palyful, can sometimes get a little out of my hand I have a little sister and we had our fair share of screaming matches and even physical fights, but the Krider brothers take that rivalry to a truly screwed up and outright disturbing level That s what this novel does so beautifully it takes the known, the everyday, the average and twists it until it s deformed beyond recognition and for that alone, it s a fantast Anyone who has a brother or sister will know that sibling rivalry, most often palyful, can sometimes get a little out of my hand I have a little sister and we had our fair share of screaming matches and even physical fights, but the Krider brothers take that rivalry to a truly screwed up and outright disturbing level That s what this novel does so beautifully it takes the known, the everyday, the average and twists it until it s deformed beyond recognition and for that alone, it s a fantastic read From bumping into someone in a doctor s waiting room to a flat tyre, everything is a move in a bigger game and nothing is what it seems.Flipping between the perspective of the younger Krider brother Craig and his sister in law, the now widowed Rebecca, we learn about the ever escalating game and the toll it s had on those participating As a result of this back and forth perspective, the reader is constantly left wanting and the tension remains high throughout I have read plenty of thrillers and often than not, they can lose a little of their pace along the way That is not the case with this book, which has just enough action to keep the pace steady, just enough questions raised to make the reader want to turn to the next page to find their answer.The characters are all wholly unlikeable, but for once that s not a problem Rob delights in the psychotic game he is playing and seems like he is evolving into his sadistic father quite nicely Craig comes across as slightly pathetic at times, wishing to escape the game but at the same time actively participating in it and producing just as many awful moves as his twisted older brother Rebecca, who unlike the brothers, willingly enters into the game rather than being bred into it by a parent, flits between being as cold and nasty as her husband Rob and being one of those pathetic women who desperately clings to the hope they can change a man However, the author depicts their internal struggles brilliantly, explaining why they are the way they are and how they came to be at this incredibly low point in their lives, so that I as a reader, whilst being disgusted by these characters and the things they do, found myself genuinely hoping there could be some kind of happy ending salvaged from the wreckage of their lives The game is the true star of the novel, showing what terrible things human beings are truly capable of doing, even to the people they love most in the world, and the participants of such a game could never be honest and kind.My only criticism is that, one of the narrators actively lies to the reader I always hated it in who done its and crime fiction, when the detective would solve the crime right at the end and reveal the murderer based on information and clues the reader was never provided It feels like cheating when the reader cannot guess what is happening in a book based purely on lies or withheld information Saying that, on this occasion, the idea of the author somehow cheating the reader fits perfectly with the nature and subject matter of the book Perhaps we too, are a part of the game.This is an incredibly dark and original book and at under 200 pages, it s a quick and enthralling read I give it five stars out of five and whole heartedly recommend it So what do you think, do you want to join
