I really enjoyed this book, but nowhere near as much as Pessl's first novel "Special Topics in Calamity Physics" which I felt was on par with Donna Tartt's Secret History. In Night Film you are hooked by the strange, winding, layered mystery right away. If you like a bit of eerie creepiness, you'll love this book. There is an app you can download for all kinds of fun add-ons that make you feel like Sherlock Holmes. You won't know who or what to believe up to and including the final pages!

One of the most terrifying books I have ever read.

This book had my interest right from the get-go. However, it seemed as though the author ran out of gas towards the ending. I tried using the app associated with this book, but it wouldn't work. Will be interesting to see how good this book will be in movie-format.

5 stars for the plot and the humourous insights and the way I couldn't put it down. 1 star for the ending.

On the positive side, this book was suspenseful, creepy and full of twists and turns. On the negative side, it was unnecessarily long. The plot just went on and on without adding to the quality of the story. Also, some of the behaviours and actions of the characters became a bit ridiculous and unlikely at times, which diminished the credibility of the story. It often read more like a screenplay than a novel but overall, it was certainly fun to read and good for a thrill.

i love this book so much that im only reading little bits at a time. I dont want it to end.

A novel that truly blew my mind. It has taken a lot of time for me to get back into fiction with everything in the fictional world nowadays having to do with vampires and werewolves, this was a welcome relief while still erring on the side of mystery and lots of subcultural references towards the unknown. Pessl is beyond well thought out in her writing which made this even more of a joy to read. Her character development was excellent and the way everything tied together left me speechless. This really was the best book I have read in a long time and she is quite the storyteller. Can't wait to back track and read her novel she wrote 7 years ago, Special Topics in Calamity Physics. Sounds like another great read!

One of the best novels I've read in awhile. Could not put it down! Plot was complex and intricate but not too much. Interesting mixed media elements that complimented the story. Characters were fascinating and I had no idea which way the story was going to go. Very well written as well, with some very poetic lines. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves an exciting, thrilling, juicy read!

A really incredible story, and a great Autumn read--suspense, mystery, while remaining very realistic. Pessl is a wonderful storyteller, and this novel is so captivating! I'm really NOT a fan of horror movies, but I was not turned off by the plot a single bit. Definitely on the chilling side, but it did not give me nightmares.
