The Escape Room by Megan Goldin book review


Synopsis (as taken from GoodReads)

‘Welcome to the escape room. Your goal is simple. Get out alive.’

In the lucrative world of Wall Street finance, Vincent, Jules, Sylvie and Sam are the ultimate high-flyers. Ruthlessly ambitious, they make billion-dollar deals and live lives of outrageous luxury. Getting rich is all that matters, and they’ll do anything to get ahead.

When the four of them become trapped in an elevator escape room, things start to go horribly wrong. They have to put aside their fierce office rivalries and work together to solve the clues that will release them. But in the confines of the elevator the dark secrets of their team are laid bare. They are made to answer for profiting from a workplace where deception, intimidation and sexual harassment thrive.

Tempers fray and the escape room’s clues turn more and more ominous, leaving the four of them dangling on the precipice of disaster. If they want to survive, they’ll have to solve one final puzzle: which one of them is a killer?



***Warning, contains spoilers***


What an absorbing read! I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and was blown away! While I figured out the Who, and the What early on, I still found it vastly entertaining and gripping to see how far Sarah was willing to go to extract her revenge. The Why was left more to be discovered later in the book which utterly shocked me. I was blown away with the fact of how thought out this novel was. You see clear motive and reasoning and honestly can’t say I blame Sarah one bit for doing the things she did.

The novel goes back and forth between Sarah’s pov and the things going on in the elevator in the current time. This novel keeps your turning page after page with I just have to know. I could NOT put it down. I feel like this novel focuses on money and how far you’re willing to go to keep it and how far will you go to keep your social standing.

Overall 5/5 stars
