Finished it!

Since We Fell - Dennis Lehane

And it was a wild ride, but ultimately left me thinking, is that all there is?

 

In the end, there were just too many plot twists. I love getting that huge "whoa, I did not see that coming" moment, but it gets a bit stale when it happens again, and then again, and yet again. Eventually the plot gets too far-fetched and it seemed to me that Lehane had no idea how to end the book, so it just limps along to the finish.

 

I do think this book would make a great movie, and I've got a sneaky suspicion that's what the author is hoping for. But if you want a Lehane book with the "whoa, I did not see that coming" moment, I would recommend Shutter Island over Since We Fell every time.
