Night Film ~ Marisha Pessl

**** RECOMMEND ****

Edgy writing = On edge reading
Book Noir : the mean streets

This was a mysterious, moody suspense novel that was creepy and compelling.  Maybe what made it stand out so much was its creative approach with its mixed media inserts (that created a bit of a problem on the Kindle).  Rather than gimmicky, I found them tantalising, with the multi-media making and already creative story even more multi-dimentional.

The plot was deep and dark and had you second guessing what you knew, what was happening, what would happen.  It was a mesmerising page turner, continuously intriguing and sinuous in plotline.  I didn't even mind the end (rational? mystical? you choose!).
