Review : Night Film by Marisha Pessl

“Everybody has a Cordova story. Cult horror director Stanislas Cordova hasn’t been seen in public since 1977. To his fans he is an engima. To journalist Scott McGrath he is the enemy. To Ashley he was a father.
On a damp October night the body of young, beautiful Ashley Cordova is found in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Her suicide appears to be the latest tragedy to hit a severely cursed dynasty.
For McGrath, another death connected to the legendary director seems more than a coincidence. Driven by revenge, curiosity and a need for the truth, he finds himself pulled into a hypnotic, disorientating world, where almost everyone seems afraid. The last time McGrath got close to exposing Cordova, he lost his marriage and his career. This time he could lose his grip on reality.

The first time i’ve heard of this book on goodreads i just knew that i would be reading it. And i’m so glad i did.
I don’t want to say much because the mystery in this book plays a big part. I liked the writing alot. I have found many good quotes while reading. Marisha Pessl is a good writer. I enjoyed the twists, they are perfectly timed and make a very interesting story. The first page grab your mind and you are stuck in the book until the last word. It’s a good page-turner. The characters are okay, i liked Nora and Hooper much more than our main character.
Overall, Night Film is a fantastic book, creepy, dark and fascinating.

Night Film : 4.5/5
