Did Gen plan her own vanishing? Was there any fact to the novel?
The only problem I had with this novel was the ending however. If Gen had such issues how could she make it to where she did ? How could her brain comprehend to do what she did? I think that was a bit out there, yet Over all The Last to See Her was very well written by Tate, which kept us stuck to the page, as there were such countless twists, particularly when the realities are found. I will say that I thought the consistent changing of POV’s at various times might have been less, as on occasion it was somewhat befuddling. I additionally don’t have any desire to give more information, as it would be a significant spoiler. All in all, The Last to See Her was an extraordinary thriller.
