Marisha Pessl's mesmerizing debut has critics raving and heralds the arrival of a vibrant new voice in American fiction. At the center of this "cracking good read" is clever, deadpan Blue van Meer, who has a head full of literary, philosophical, scientific, and cinematic knowledge. But she could use some friends. Upon entering the elite St. Gallway school, she finds some--a clique of eccentrics known as the Bluebloods. One drowning and one hanging later, Blue finds herself puzzling out a byzantine murder mystery. Nabokov meets Donna Tartt (then invites the rest of the Western Canon to the party) in this novel.

The reading of this book by Emily Janice Card is very hard to listen to. The delivery often sounds juvenile and superficial, unconnected to the real content of the material.
I will read the text instead of listening to the recorded version. Too bad.

I wish I had read it on paper instead of listening.
