This Is How It Ends - ARC Review - No spoilers

If you could see the future, would you want to? After the disturbing visions Riley and his friends see turn out to be more than hallucinations, fate takes a dangerous twist in this dark and suspenseful page-turner.
Riley and his friends are gearing up for their senior year by spending one last night hanging out in the woods, drinking a few beers, and playing Truth or Dare. But what starts out as a good time turns sinister when they find a mysterious pair of binoculars. Those who dare to look through them see strange visions, which they brush off as hallucinations. Why else would Riley see himself in bed with his best friend’s girlfriend—a girl he’s had a secret crush on for years?

In the weeks that follow, the visions begin to come true...including a gruesome murder. One of Riley’s closest friends is now the prime suspect. But who is the murderer? Have Riley and his friends really seen the future through those mysterious binoculars? And what if they are powerless to change the course of events?

The book follows a male protagonist and I liked that a book like this did that. However, I did not like the male character. He kept going on about Sarah but, I the part that i read, never did anything about getting her to be his.

The writing style was good and the idea unique to me, but I did not connect with any of the characters. this is really important to me. If I do not fell the emotions that they are, it is not a job well done. I found myself making excuses not to read the book and went to read others.

I have to say that just because I did not enjoy it does not mean that others will not. I just did not connect with the story.

P.S. I LOVE THE BOOK COVER. book covers are immensely important to me because that is the first thing that draws me to clicking on the link or picking it up in the book store.
