Day Twenty-Four: A Book That You Wish More People Had Read
Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl.
At this point I usually have to point out to people that this is NOT A PHYSICS BOOK.
What it is, however, is quirky and sweet and bookish. I read it a while ago, so I don’t actually remember all the details, but the plot goes somewhat thusly: a girl’s father disappears mysteriously, her teacher commits suicide, and her quest to find out why leads through literature and beyond.
Look, I know that sounds like the most depressing thing in the world, but truly, it is rather lovely. It’s also the book I like to think I would be if I were a book. It’s adorably meta, oh-so-clever, and just generally awesome in so many ways. So…go read it, Constant Reader. Because that is the point of this post.
Hang on. Was there something else?
