    hm. yeah, i think i am going to stick with a flat three on this one. it?s a shame, because i was looking forward to this with hearts in my eyes and a quiver in my loins and i even got a sweet signed copy, but while it is a thoroughly enjoyable, medium book, it stays right there in th...

    Plot: 2.5 stars Narrator: 4 stars I am not sure if I would have had a different experience with the story had I chose to read it versus listen to it; there was too much going on. I found myself losing interest and it was almost a DNF had I not wanted to figure out what the heck was...

    There's really nothing I would change about this book, and I couldn't put it down. That's why it gets 5 stars from me. I had heard pretty mixed reviews about this one from a lot of book reviewers & friends I follow online, so maybe going in with low expectations helped my readin...

    I liked this book a lot , from the setup to the settings and to all of the minor characters and the plot. It was such a wild ride listening to this audiobook, I had read some reviews and thought it was going to be a poor read but I was pleasantly surprised. ...

    I don't usually write long reviews, but I started to type up everything that was annoying me about this book, so here you go. Yeah, it's rambling and whatever. I'm just so disappointed that the author of one of my favorite books (Night Film) wrote this... The Plot I noticed a ...

    ***SPOILERS HIDDEN*** Marisha Pessl?s third book is her first offering not only in the young adult genre but also science fiction, and it?s a success. The story is a balanced blend of the solid (a murder-mystery element) and the fantastical (the ?Neverworld? sci-fi element, ...

    Read for Popsugar's 2018 Reading Challenge #23: A Book About Time Travel Let me start out by saying I don't think this is a bad book, as I think it was pretty clever and unique in a lot of ways, but the plot and characters just didn't appeal to me AT ALL. So I would recommend this t...

    What I liked about this book is that Marisha Pessl managed to tell a complex story that could've easily been confusing in a very succinct and beautiful way (I will always love her writing). The mythology of the neverworld wake was very out there but she managed to keep the story ground...

    Astonishing, captivating, wizardly. One of the best young-adult books I?ve read this year. Pessl is now on my list of authors to follow. I?m thrilled I found her. After a year of not speaking to any of her friends from her senior year in high school, Whitley startles Beatrice at...

    Though generically a YA, Neverworld Wake should appeal to older readers; it certainly does to this one. It is the book that I?d waited for Marisha Pessl to write, a school-story version of Donna Tartt?s The Secret History with teen-aged characters and set in New England. Pessl has ...

    We are all anthologies. We are each thousands of pages long, filled with fairy tales and poetry, mysteries and tragedy, forgotten stories in the back no one will ever read. I feel like a lot of people going into this book will come in with high expectations and somewhat of a buzz,...

    3.5 stars? This book was so weird that I still don?t know which genre this is or what the book was actually about. It was really addicting as the story is divided into three parts that each have an introduction, plot arch and a semi-resolution, so it?s easy to identify the stru...

    I really enjoyed this book. It was well-crafted and you can tell it was thought out right down to every detail. The reason why it lost a star is that it was a little hard to get into. I had to read the first few chapters before I was really invested with the story. Highly recom...

    I was absolutely captivated by the synopsis for this book initially. It had intrigue, mystery and sounded dark. My kinda thing! I won?t give too much of the plot away since it?s always best to go in blind with these types of books. It?s safe to say, the plot pulled me in. Th...

    3.5 What I liked: - really really fun. Especially the middle where things really got going, I had a lot of fun watching the characters relive the same day in so many different ways. Causing chaos, trying to figure out how to get out without having to cause the others to die, solvi...

    I really loved this book. There were so many twists and turns and the premise itself was just so cool. I loved the way that the only way out of the Neverworld was for four people to willingly die so that one could live. What I liked most about it is that there wasn?t an easy fix,...

    3.5 stars Folks, before you even think about picking up Neverworld Wake , throw out what you know about Marisha Pessl and Night Film right out the window. If you compare the two works of Ms. Pessl, you will be completely and utterly disappointed. Night Film is a mature, atmospheric...
