    1. 3.5 StarsMy reviews can also be seen at: deesradreadsandreviews.wordprWhen I read the description of this book I thought the plot sounded really interesting. In the blurb it says that nothing is what it seems. and they weren't kidding! My head was spinning right from the first sentence."Ted McKay was about to put a bullet through his brain when the doorbell rang, insistently."He waits because he knows he can't shoot himself while someone is at the door. Then he hears someone yelling for him to o [...]

    2. Mi tercer libro de Axat y uno más que me deja boquiabierto. Personajes sólidos, el misterio no cesa en ningún momento y cada uno de sus capítulos es una puerta abierta a lo inesperado. La última salida, con su ritmo vertiginoso y sus escenas apabullantes, logró captar mi atención hasta tal punto que se volvió un compañero inseparable en mi vida cotidiana. Pocas veces he leído una novela negra con tantos giros. La historia no deja de cambiar de manera completa el paradigma de lo que se [...]

    3. Hace tiempo que no leía algo que realmente me sorprendiera y, sin el ánimo de alardear, eso es cada vez más difícil. El autor juega con el lector en forma permanente y ninguna de las teorías que uno pueda ir elucubrando tiene sentido al llegar al siguiente capítulo. Me llamó la atención que el autor lograra tamaña intriga sólo con la trama y no, como en otros libros que he leído, con una prosa confusa. De hecho me encantó el estilo de Federico Axat, directo, centrado en lo que quiere [...]

    4. ¿Sabéis esa sensación de estar en una montaña rusa, esperando el segundo en el que caeréis a toda velocidad por la rampa? Pues bien, este libro se puede adaptar a esta metáfora; es vertiginoso desde el minuto cero. Y, si bien me ha parecido magistral el modo en que el autor juega con el lector, hay ciertos detalles al final del libro que me han frenado de darle las cinco estrellas.

    5. TL; DR: If you dislike gratuitous, graphic animal torture scenes, this book is not for you. If you really dislike sticking with a book despite multiple plot problems and two-dimensional characters just to see if there is some kind of payoff, only to be hit by a gratuitous, graphic animal torture scene in the final pages, well, you should run like hell.I'm sorry, I just didn't love this book. I did read the whole thing, even though I was frustrated with the two-dimensional characters, the plot th [...]

    6. Ted McKay has a terminal brain tumor. While his wife and children are visiting her family out of state, he decides it is time to end his life. Putting a gun to his head, he prepares to pull the trigger.But the doorbell ringing interrupts him. A stranger offers his a deal if he will shoot a criminal who walked away from justice before he dies, and also kill another man like himself terminally ill and waiting to die, the next man on the list will take Ted's life. It would be so much easier for h [...]

    7. Kill The Next One is the third novel by Argentinian author, Federico Axat. Successful businessman, husband and father, Ted McKay has a brain tumour. He is sitting in his study with a gun. He’s about to put it to his head when someone persistently knocks on his door.

    8. Brutal. Un novelón. Hace tiempo que no leía nada igual. Mi reseña completa en entremislibrosyo.

    9. Ted McKay had it all, a beautiful wife, two lovely daughters and a high paid job. He has just been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour.A stranger makes him a proposition. Kill two deserving people before you die. The first target will be a criminal, the second will also have terminal cancer. After Ted has killed his next two targets Ted will become the next persons target.I loved this book. With its well written and thought out plot and a different style to most. This is another storyline I g [...]

    10. Βαθμολογία: ★★★★Η «Τελευταία έξοδος» είναι ένα πολύ δυνατό ψυχολογικό θρίλερ, από αυτά που αλλού ξεκινούν και αλλού καταλήγουν, με μπόλικες ανατροπές στην πορεία που σε καθηλώνουν. Οι χαρακτήρες είχαν φυσικά τα ελαττώματά τους, αλλά το συγχωρώ, γιατί ήταν απαραίτητο για [...]

    11. It's been a while since I been so encaptured by a fiction novel as I was with this one . To be honest there were moments when I was like WTF did I just read? but the more I read on the more twists I was finding and the more it made me feel unsure as to what the ending would be . I had no idea what the e ding would be until the last 10 pages and for a seasoned reader that is very unexpected. The story is unique and complex , it moves in different levels and it keeps you in edge every page . high [...]

    12. When Ted McKay finds out that he has a brain tumor he decides to take matters into his own hands and end things his own way. With meticulous planning Ted comes to the day that he finds himself alone in his study with his wife and children far away so he is determined to end his own life but just as soon as he begins there is a knock at the door.

    13. Η άποψή μου για το βιβλίο στο site "Book City": Τελευταία έξοδος

    14. Το ξεκίνησα χθες το βράδυ και μόλις το τελείωσα.Αυτό δεν ήταν βιβλίο,roller coaster ήτανε!Αλλιώς ξεκινάει ,σε ανεβάζει,σε κατεβάζει,αλλού στρίβει ,αλλού πας ,ζαλίζεσαι αλλά συνεχίζεις.Θες να δεις που θα καταλήξει,κάνεις υποθέσεις και καθε φορά που νομίζεις οτι ξέρεις τι συμβαίνει [...]

    15. As soon as I turned the last page of this novel I had to question (once again) the publisher's decision to a) change the title and b) come up with a dustjacket blurb that hardly matches what goes in in this book, because when all is said and done, the original Spanish title is much more reflective of the nature of what happens here and the blurb points people in a sort of misleading direction. I'm not surprised that so many readers were frustrated with this book, since they were expecting one th [...]

    16. **3.5 stars**Yes well. Kill the Next One was certainly unexpected. But I liked it. Clever. Ok there are some things in here, especially the last bit, that may discombobulate and upset some (and I don't really feel that bit needed to be in there) but overall I found it to be highly addictive.A game of two halves really. Or 2 and a bit halves. Or something. Starting off with an offer, then heading into fairly surreal territory where you may clutch your head a bit then settling into a rather fascin [...]

    17. To Shutter Island για φτωχούς Γκρεμίζει την καταπληκτική του αρχική ιδέα ήδη από το 1/3 του βιβλίου γιατί καταλαβαίνει όταν δεν μπορεί να την υποστηρίξει. Από εκεί πέρα γίνεται ένας αχταρμάς διαφορετικών Points of Views, καταστρατηγεί βάναυσα τον περίφημο κανόνα "Show, don't tell" με ψυχαναλυτικ [...]

    18. Η αλήθεια είναι ότι άργησα πολύ να γράψω κριτική γι' αυτό το βιβλίο, οπότε το αρχικό συναίσθημα μετά το τέλος του σίγουρα έχει χαθεί ή μετριαστεί.Σίγουρα πάντως μιλάμε για μεγάλη απογοήτευση!!! Η πλοκή ξεκινάει στο πρώτο μέρος με τη λογική της 'Μέρας της Μαρμότας', σε παίρνει [...]

    19. Qué locura de libro. Me ha tenido en mi propio laberinto unos cuantos días, y cómo lo he disfrutado

    20. Thriller psicológico muy adictivo, bien escrito y desarrollado. Te mantiene enganchada prácticamente todo el libro. Me ha gustado mucho. Entre 4'5 / 5 estrellas.

    21. "Pero siempre hay una parte de ti que es responsable; responsable de no haber detenido a la otra parte. Porque una parte de ti lo sabe. Lo sabe todo."

    22. The number of twists that Axat brings to this brilliant force of a thriller almost exceeds the number of pages. I had never heard of a suicide daisy-chain before but an incarnation goes something like this: Ted is about to end his life before suddenly being interrupted by the stranger, Justin Lynch. Lynch’s tempting offer is to hold off on suicide and instead kill two criminals that have outrun justice. Ted’s reward? Lynch will arrange for him to be cleanly killed — a kinder ending for Ted [...]

    23. Un thriller psicológico imperdible para todos los amantes del género. Una trama que te engaña, juega contigo y tira por tierra todas las teorías que puedas ir haciendo desde el principio para dejarte asombrado e impactado cuando descubres la verdad detrás de la historia de Ted. Un libro muy adictivo que me ha dejado bastante sorprendida.

    24. Το "Τελευταία έξοδος" είναι το τρίτο κατά σειρά μυθιστόρημα με την υπογραφή του Federico Axat, ο οποίος έχει χαρακτηριστεί από πολλούς ως ο Stephen King της Αργεντινής, και το πρώτο του βιβλίου που κυκλοφορεί μεταφρασμένο στη χώρα μας από τις εκδόσεις Μεταίχμιο. Μια επιλογή που ταιριάζ [...]

    25. Είχα μεγάλες προσδοκίες για το συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο, νομίζω ότι ο συγγραφέας είχε μια πολύ έξυπνη ιδέα για τον σκελετό του μυθιστορήματος του. Λαβύρινθοι, μυστήριο, ανατροπές, ένας πρωταγωνιστής με αμνησία που με την βοήθεια της ψυχιάτρου του καταφέρνει σιγά σιγά να ανακαλ [...]
