A suspenseful, totally gripping, and surprisingly enjoyable read.
THE THOUSANDTH FLOOR by Katharine McGee is a suspenseful, totally gripping, and surprisingly enjoyable read. Imagine NYC 100 years in the future, mostly located within a 1,000-story tower. The book begins with a mysterious death—someone has fallen from the top floor.
From the very first page it felt like I had to race to the finish line.The structure of this story is fantastic—beginning with a mystery made it nearly impossible to put down. I was desperate to figure out who had died and how everything had escalated to that point.
We follow 5 separate narratives, all expertly woven together. The multiple narrators took a little getting used to, but once you adjust it was quite an effective tool for pushing the story forward, as well as leaving the reader in quite a bit of suspense. Plus we were shown a variety of different life experiences in the tower (particularly class politics).
The finale was spectacularly satisfying, and the author still managed to leave readers with an incredible cliffhanger. I will absolutely pick up the next book in this series. Highly recommend!
Note: I received a FREE ARC (advanced reader copy) from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
