"Neverworld Wake is a shape-shifting binge read . . . It's a 'clear your calendar' kind of one-day read, singular as both a psychological thriller and a new addition to Pessl's uncategorizable canon." --Melissa Albert, New York Times bestselling author of The Hazel World

"[A]sophisticated novel ... similar to Libba Bray's acclaimed Going Bovine."—VOYA, starred review

“A dark and twisty tale brimming with psychological suspense.” —Bustle
"An altogether eerie, philosophically challenging exploration of the ways in which our actions have consequences . . . the kind of book you'll tear through and then want to talk about with everyone you know immediately after finishing." -- Nylon

After letting it set in for a couple of days, I'm landing at a solid 4 stars and sticking with it. I don't know how to really compare this book to anything else I've ever read. I was so immersed in this story and this world that I couldn't pull myself away. I found myself questioning if this was a thing that really happened - what if every time some tragic accident/act of violence happened where only one out of many survived, the survivor was determined by an endless cycle of negotiating and reliving one day until everyone decided whose life was most worth living? I definitely recommend this book. It is a true one-of-a-kind and something that will stick with me for a while. Even if it's a kind of different that you don't end up enjoying, it's worth a shot because it's not a huge time commitment.
I only didn't give it 5 stars because I'm one of those people that hopes that there might be an unhappy or tragic ending in like 9/10 books that I read. I expected Bee to end up committing suicide after she was spared. I was kind of disappointed that she was the one chosen to survive. Most people would be infuriated, but I felt like it could have just ended with them all fading away in the icy water because our main character and narrator hadn't survived. I assumed when Martha disappeared, it was because she was the one who had been saved.
I didn’t want to leave this strange world.
Overall, disappointing. I hope Peesl returns to adult fiction for her next book, and figures out how to make her conclusions as riviting as her setups.
This is a story that follows Beatrice who lost the love of her life in a mysterious accident and a year later decides to reconnect with their friends to find answers. Only to unlock a multitude of secrets. 5 lives, a tragedy, a mysterious stranger, 1 survivor. Vote, vote, vote. I highly recommend this story; I could not put it down.
