The Escape Room by Megan Goldin. I’d heard a lot of hype about this book and I was super excited to read it. However, it wasn’t for me.
In the beginning I certainly enjoyed the chapters about Sara over the other chapters but by the halfway mark I still wasn’t finding the storyline compelling enough to keep me coming back, I really had to force myself to finish the book (I’m stubborn that way) and then I was rewarded with an ending that felt not only unbelievable but fairly slapped together. It felt like there was a lot of build up for nothing, as if the author spent considerably more time on the first chapters, but then ran up against a deadline and was scrambling to submit the final pages so just threw together an ending.
I love a good debate though, so if you enjoyed the book please leave me a comment and let me know what I might have missed that really grabbed you.
Vincent, Jules, Sylvie, and Sam are ruthlessly ambitious high-flyers working in the lucrative world of Wall Street finance where deception and intimidation thrive. Getting rich is all that matters, and they'll do anything to reach the top.
When they are ordered to participate in a corporate team-building exercise that requires them to escape from a locked elevator, dark secrets of their team begin to be laid bare.
The biggest mystery to solve in this lethal game: What happened to Sara Hall? Once a young shining star—”now gone but not forgotten”.
This is no longer a game.
They’re fighting for their lives.
