pessl's other book, night film, was good most of the way through, but fell apart completely in the end for me.
this book was so much better, including the end.
pessl's characters are so vivid--so distinct from one another. the turn in the end of the book is startling, given how well you think you know the characters by that point, but it somehow works.
the entire read is engaging, constantly leaving you wondering how exactly the narrtive will shake out.
i don't have a lot to say about this book--i really can't put why i like it so much into words, but i know i like it, and that's enough.
probable next read: a dance with dragons by george r.r. martin
