    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    The first thing you need to know, before I type anything else, is that this book is not bad because it's YA. This book is bad because it's bad. Period. It is with a heavy heart that I must deem this book a complete failure. I've thought about it for the past few days (the book only ...

    Trust me, no one is more disappointed than I am right now. Considering that Night Film is one of my top three books of all time, I was so excited to get my hands on an early copy of Pessl?s third novel. I didn?t hate it, and I was engaged throughout the book. However, I think...

    ***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, ...

    I am confusion. ...

    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 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 ...

    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 ...

    4.5/5stars I LOVED THIS. normally i would give a 4.5 star book a 4 star but i want everyone to understand how much i enjoyed this so i'm giving it the full 5 for GR rating. This book, I legit couldn't put it down. I didn't even mean to read it all at once and even TRIED to set a ...

    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...

    *Disclaimer: A copy of Neverworld Wake by Marisha Pessl was provided to me by Indigo Books & Music as part of their monthly teen #IndigoStaffPicks promotion. This does not effect my opinion in any way. -- Actual rating: 4.5 Stars! -- ?We are all anthologies. We ar...

    Beatrice Hartley and her five best friends ruled Darrow-Harker School.  Sure there were secrets and alliances and love or something like it, but they'd do anything for each other. Then Jim, the brilliant writer and Beatrice's boyfriend, is found dead at the bottom of the quarry near ...

    Pessl's first two books were marvels in both construction and innovation, but after finishing them, I felt like I had just completed a 100,000 piece jigsaw puzzle... and was left with either a few extra pieces ... or a few gaping holes and no pieces to fill them. They also felt (at 514...

    ?Our friendship was born there?. You could feel life burning us, our scars as real as the wind whipping our faces. We knew that nothing would ever be the same, that youth was here and nearly gone already, that love was gradile and death was real.? So I guess I read mysteries...

    2 stars--meh. So disappointed! I normally love Marisha Pessl, but this had mediocre writing, a premise that didn't hold up under too much thought (and a premise I couldn't suspend my disbelief for), and characters that were caricatures and unlikable (seriously, why were they friend...

    THIS is how you leap from adult fiction to YA. YES, marisha! this book put me in its pocket and kept me there until i'd made it through all three-hundred-something pages, at which point i emerged, disoriented, unsure where the book ended and my world began. a wonderful combinatio...

    My sister and I received an ARC of this book. Oh my goodness... It's amazing! ...

    Reasons I enjoyed Neverworld Wake: 1. There's something so easy about young adult stories. I don't know what it is, but they're no work to comprehend, and I love it. You open it up and you're basically already settled into things. Maybe it's because of the formatting of YA novels? Ma...
