Neverworld Wake – Review

Neverworld Wake by Marisha Pessl

Neverworld Wake is a novel about 5 teenagers, whose friend is long dead. Their car crashes, and they find they’re stuck between life and death Neverworld, and can’t leave the infinite loop of days until they vote unanimously on who gets to continue living. So unique! I’ve never seen anything remotely like this, so it already gets good points for having an amazing premise. And the author carries it out very well. The stages that the teens go through in the Neverworld are so real and really are exactly what would happen in real life, and after a depressing and insightful montage of how people with no consequence and no escape spend their infinite lives, the mystery incorporated gang get together in one of the coolest mystery sleuthing I’ve seen in a long time. Our perspective into this world is a fairly bland character called  Beatrice, though she is a lovely describer of emotions. A splendid gripping read for those who can stand a little gore and love books of the premise less used.

Rating – 4.5/5



I run a website where I post whatever's in my head that I want to shout into the world. Hope you stick around and enjoy it!
