Night Film – Marisha Pessl
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
DNF at around 75%. There’s just something about this book that I couldn’t handle, it was a struggle for me to even get as far as I did. It felt like the main character was just going in circles and he didn’t really know what he was doing or what he was getting himself into, and the group he formed with the two teenagers felt a little forced. I loved how the book had extras throughout, like websites and photos to help you really feel like your in the story helping them investigate. I also really liked the paper the book was printed on, which sounds strange, but this is an almost 600 page book that looks like it is less than half that. Its a nice heavy paper, and made reading the pages an enjoyable physical experience. I do think that the idea behind the story is great and I do honestly want to know what happened to Ashley Cordova, and I do want to see how the book ends. I’ll probably get around to finishing it at some point since there is no way that I can leave a book unfinished.
