False Ending is a dark comedy and a good one. The story starts in media res (in the middle of things) and you aren’t quite sure whether you started this episode of “The Truth” podcast near the end instead of the beginning.
Once you make it past the first hurdle of not knowing what the hell is going on, the story takes a darker turn and is immediately followed by a moment of humor. The process is repeated enough times where the creator’s don’t overdo too much of a good thing.
This story is a complete mindf**k and uses humor to soften the blow. Without it, the story would be far too dark.
