I was totally surprised by The Escape Room in the best way possible. I wasn’t sure what I expected going in, but I wasn’t expecting what I got. It was so hard to put down and I eagerly keep flipping pages wondering what was going to happen next.
I don’t want to spoil too much of the plot, so I’m just going to say that the novel alternated between two plots, which obviously came together at the end. The first was four high power employees getting locked in an elevator, being told that it was an escape room for a team building event. The second was the story of Sara Hall.
I loved the way that the novel was divided and I was hooked on both of the elevator scenes and Sara’s story. The novel isn’t your typical mystery thriller where there isn’t a big twist at the end. I think the novel was flawless throughout and I really felt my like or dislike towards the characters.
5 calculators out of a potential 5. One of my favourite novels of the year. Highly recommend this one!
