Where have you been all my life? Okay, guys. Since this book doesn’t come out for another 4 months, I’m not going to go into any crazy details (my synopsis here/ Goodreads synopsis here), but I just wanted to send this out into the world: I need Marisha Pessl to write more books.
Night Film is the most engaged I have felt with a book in a while. I cannot put it down, but I also can only handle it in increments. I NEED to know what happens, but I also need time to come up with my theories (not much beats having a theory that turns out to be right. Am I right?!) About 200 pages in, I had a talk with a coworker who raved about her previous book, Special Topics in Calamity Physics. I took my lunch to walk to the store and buy it. (Are you at all surprised?)
Now, over 75% through Night Film, I spent the majority of my morning researching Marisha Pessl and her books. Not sure if it is just being a wannabe know-it-all nerd, or if it’s the true bookseller in me, but when I love a book, I feel the need to know all that is to know. The internet becomes my new best friend. Here is what I have found:
- Special Topics in Calamity Physics (2006) has a kickass interactive website (here) and a neat trailer (at the bottom of this post).
- Night Film has a creepy and aptly constructed website. Talk about eerie suspense! (Here)
- Marisha Pessl is being published internationally! (Cover images seen on her Twitter @marishapessl.)
- Night Film has had it’s film rights sold to Chernin Entertainment; the company responsible for Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the new Tom Cruise action flick, Oblivion. It will be directed by Rupert Wyatt.
Since I’m still reading Night Film and have nothing new to share for my Friday Reads, this will have to do!
