I need someone to talk to about the ending!

Yes I've just finished it. Found it v v confusing.

Ah hurray! It's the bracelet I wondered about, right at the end - does that mean claire was still alive?

The bracelet confused me.
I wondered if sunbed man had somehow got hold of it and wasn't dead ...

I still don't understand why he had a sunbed, was that explained?
The other thing I wondered was whether Claire never existed at all? Whether taylor had mpd and in the end subsumed her into her personality? But then there's too much of a back story for both girls for that to work isn't there?

Just finished this....what was the last twist (re. the bracelet)? I fear I don't quite get it?

I've just finished this book and I need an answer regarding the bracelet at the end, so have come onto Mumsnet to see if there was a discussion about it and there is, but none the wiser!

Claire (who stole the bracelet) gave it back to Amber a few chapters earlier in the hospital, so not sure what the significance of it being on the room service tray at the end was. Any ideas?

I feel slightly miffed....

I just finished this also and I have so many questions! I thought it was because I listened to the audio book and I probably zoned out a few times. So was it really Claire who caused the accident? If it was then why was there no question as to who was driving? And who was the psycho child, was it Claire or Amber?? And the bracelet? Come on! I thought it was so gripping throughout but the ending let me down unfortunately. If it had just ended with Amber killing Claire and her husband I would have thought it was a kind of twisted poetic justice. But all of those twists at the end just left me feeling confused. Well done to the writer though, I can definitely see this in the cinemas. :-)

I just wanted to bump this as I'm really confused about the bracelet at the ending too. I think Edward's body wasn't found, was he (or did I misread)? But if so, how does he even end up with the bracelet?

I don't usually end up this stumped by books confused

"I unzip the body of who I used to be and step outside of myself; a newborn Russian doll, a little smaller than I was before, wondering how many other versions of me are still hidden inside”.

I like to read before switching the light off at night. I couldn't read it in one go but it was certainly difficult to put down.
At around 2:30 am having reached the very end, I did go back and read the early chapters and the last ones again ( no baby, no job to go to next day!) to see if I figured it out and I still don't know for sure what the answer is.

Gripping book.

I've just read this and googled what on earth the ending was about! The bracelet really confused me too. confused

Completely confused by the ending. What was that all about?

I found a quote from the author on twitter: 'It's about how, if we spend too long pretending to be somebody else, we can forget who we are' which makes me wonder about whether there's been some kind of switch and Paul was having an affair with Claire and they killed Amber. She (Claire) is now kidding herself but her subconscious is playing tricks (the bracelet). It could be read several different ways.

I think Edward had a sunbed to perpetrate his 'I'm a cool sexy successful doctor' persona when it was all actually bullshit

I was so pleased that I found this thread, but you’re all as confused as I am!! What the fuck was that all about?

I am so irritated by the ending after enjoying the book so much! 🙃

There’s going to be a sequel, so Amazon tells me. “Sometimes I Kill” our March 19. Hopefully there will be answers!
