Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl
Special Topics in Calamity Physics

ctolliver, October 27, 2008

I just read a review that criticized Pessl's prose as overdone. But it's not "Pessl's prose"; it's the interior monologue of a precocious 16-year old, and it represents Blue beautifully. She's so over the top; you can't help but laugh, and like her.

Blue reminds me a little bit of Holden Caulfield, and a little bit of the female protagonist in The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.
