I'm Thinking of Ending Things is the debut novel by Holly Marie Combs. It's set in early 80's and centers around the life of a young woman who is starting to have issues with her own relationship with God. When her boyfriend dumps her, she goes on the road with him to the isolated farm of his parents. It seems like a perfect setting for them to talk and for her to ask him all of the questions that she has. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case.
I'm Thinking of Ending Things has been compared to Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles and Anne Rice's own Dark Ages series and while the setting may be similar, I'm not a big fan of either one because they are so repetitive and boring. I'm a fan of more original ideas and Holly Marie Combs does not disappoint with this novel.
The main character's name is Faith and in the beginning of the book, she is very beautiful and innocent. After the death of her parents, however, she becomes very depressed and has trouble thinking straight.
I'm Thinking of Ending Things also takes on the issue of what happens to people after they die. As someone who has researched these topics for years, I can say that most of the time, people don't really matter in the afterlife. For me, that's not an interesting thought process.
However, I'm Not So sure about the "big bad" at the end of the book. In one part of the book, the main character is confronted with the reality of her own love life, and what she has done to hurt herself and her boyfriend. This is the first of several chapters dealing with relationships and faith. The author states right from the beginning that she doesn't really want to focus on religion at all, but I guess it seems as though the writers just needed a chance to get the reader involved with the whole story.
Overall, I'm Not So sure about the book as a whole. It was intriguing to read, but at times it seemed to drag and it was hard to keep my interest because I was so bored with the overall concept of the book. I think the best way to describe I'm Thinking of Ending Things would be a short novelette about a teenager's search for herself in the afterlife.
