Neverworld Wake Reviews
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? Maybe it's that the writing is generally less sophisticated? I have no idea, but this book was wonderfully easy to read.
2. The concept of the novel is quickly gripping (read the synopsis!!). The suspense aspect of the s ...more
why did no one tell me this took place in rhode island???? they have already mentioned del's lemonade!!! my HEART!
I WOULD STILL LIKE TO READ YOU, PLEASE, NOW THAT YOU HAVE A TITLE AND A COVER AND A SYNOPSIS JUST LIKE A REAL BOOK!!
I WOULD LIKE TO READ YOU, PLEASE, MYSTERIOUS UNTITLED NOVEL!
It’s so easy to hate the pretty one, worship the genius, love the rock star, trust the good girl.
That’s never their only story.
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.
Neverworld Wake confirmed it for me, Marisha Pessl is one of a kind. No one writes atmospheric, spooky and powerful profound story with a thought-provoking ending and memorable sense of doom like s ...more
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 stopping point for myself and failed THREE TIMES. I didn't eat or play with my cat or do anything but READ while I was absorbing this. I. Loved. It.
This book is about a group of ex best friends who find themselves in betwe ...more
I am confusion.
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 this could have been so much more, which is why I’m coming away feeling more disappointed than anything.
I went into this having absolutely no clue what this was about other than that the blurb sounded weird, so I’m ...more
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 and 640 pages respectively) a bit bloated and in need of judicious editing.
No such problem blights Pessl's third endeavor - which is both a blessing and a curse. The ending doesn't leave any loose strands or pond ...more
