Brilliant, haunting, breathtakingly suspenseful, Night Film is a superb literary thriller by the New York Times bestselling author of the “blockbuster debut” (People) Special Topics in Calamity Physics.   On a damp October night, beautiful young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding Ashley’s life and death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of her father: the legendary, reclusive, cult-horror-film director Stanislas Cordova—a man who hasn’t been seen in public for more than thirty years.   For McGrath, another death connected to this seemingly cursed family dynasty seems more than just a coincidence. Though much has been written about Cordova’s dark and unsettling films, very little is known about the man himself.   Driven by revenge, curiosity, and a need for the truth, McGrath, with the aid of two strangers, is drawn deeper and deeper into Cordova’s eerie, hypnotic world.   The last time he got close to exposing the director, McGrath lost his marriage and his career. This time he might lose even more.   Night Film, the gorgeously written, spellbinding new novel by the dazzlingly inventive Marisha Pessl, will hold you in suspense until you turn the final page.

4.0 Night Film by Marisha Pessl
Night Film gripped me. I was on the edge of my seat for most of the book, reading the book in large chunks, taking breaks and taking my time, because of dark and disturbing content, and also to just think. This book made me think a lot. The story isn't what I would call scary, but thrilling or suspe...

I wanted to love this book. Everyone loves this book. But I didn't love this book. It was just okay.I found it interesting at the beginning, but it began to drag on and on until I eventually lost interest in the mystery, because I just wanted it to be over. I didn't DNF it because I had just enough ...

This was one long mofo of an audio book. I will give it extra brownie points for holding my attention enough to listen to all 23 hours of it. That’s not a misprint. Twenty-Three Hours! Damn, that is a long ass listen. Worth it too. A very well done thriller/mystery/suspense tale that immediately gra...

2.0 Night Film by Marisha Pessl
Some books grab me. Some books don’t. This one didn’t. I realized this after I had to rewind five+ HOURS of audio because I was completely lost after sleep-listening my way through all of the incredibly boring descriptive details and goings-on and tidbits and interviews of whatnot and whoever. ...

Never trust the hype! I was really looking forward to be reading this novel and I was expecting a good mystery thriller with a lot of suspence. Instead I read a too long-drawn-out pretentious mess of a book. The plot is disappointing and not suspenceful at all. I´ve got the impression that Marisha...
