I loved this so much more than I thought I would! It was so absolutely creepy. And you guys. I read this in one sitting at midnight. Oh the SHUDDERS.
But I did have a few problems: While it got to a great start, so many "convenient" things just happened to make things fall into place and that sort of annoyed me. And Sawyer made some really...not-so-smart decisions sometimes which made me want to shake her.
I also sort of wanted to delve more into Kevin and Sawyer's abusive relationship and there were also a few plot holes, now that I think about it, but it didn't in any way affect the reading enjoyment!
But the atmosphere was absolutely chilling and haunting. Oh ugh. The note was absolutely creepy and wonderful. The atmosphere felt a bit psychological thriller and I loved the way I doubted the character at several moments. There were also so many suspects, but as they each went six feet under...well it got a bit obvious after a little after the halfway mark, but it still shocked me. Completely and absolutely. Like, HOLY CRAP.
There is a ridiculous amount of suspense and it had a great pacing, though a (very) few parts were slightly rushed. There were just so many creepy things that just accumulated until I was completely and utterly spooked. I even considered the fact that our Sawyer WAS the killer. This book just messed with my brain sometimes (and I was literally looking over my shoulder. Having a dark hallway at your back while reading a thriller, by the way, is not a good idea.)
Truly, Madly, Deadly, was absolutely suspenseful, absolutely creepy, and had so many twists. Recommended for thriller fans and people who are in love with these kind of stories!
