Book Traveling Thursday #7: Choose a book with a major plot twist.

It’s time for Book Traveling Thursdays! This meme is created by the wonderful bloggers from Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much. If you want to participate in this meme, you just have to go to the Goodreads group where the weekly themes will be announced at the beginning of each month. I will link the group here. After that, you have to just select a book according to the theme and explain why you chose this book in a blog post. In that post, you also have to choose different covers of the book you select. To be more specific, you have to post the original cover, the covers from you country, your favourite cover, and lastly, your least favourite cover. So, here goes!

We all have a moment of shock when a super unexpected plot twist happens. So, this week’s theme is to choose a book with a major plot twist that surprised me. For this theme, I chose Night Film by Marisha Pessl. This book has too many plot twists to count and each one is better than the other. Just when you think that you know where the story is going, it changes direction. It messes with your mind, and though the book is of more than 600 pages, it makes you want more of it. This book is amazing! It may even be one of the best books that I’ve read this year. I highly, highly recommend this book to everyone!

Original Cover:

10112885This is the original cover for the book and I really like it. It has this mysterious feeling to it that lingers throughout the book. Then, there is the girl in the red coat which is an important detail of the story. So, as a whole, even if there is not much to the cover, it is good.

Cover from my country(India):

18070787This cover also has the same elements as the original cover. But I like the original cover better. This one is average. I don’t know any other way to describe it.

Favourite Cover:

22138511This Greek cover is amazing! It perfectly describes the book. It describes what you’re in for when you read the book. The dark, unending stairs reaching down is almost a symbolical object to describe how Scott reaches the deepest and the most horrifying truths about himself and about the Cordovas. It’s like this unending path to darkness! I can’t say any more without giving some spoilers, but if you’ve read the book, you know what I’m talking about. This cover is perfect.

Least Favourite Cover:

18486830This Finnish cover has got it all wrong. It doesn’t have any relevance to the story and it isn’t attractive. It doesn’t encourage the reader to pick it up. It is dull and uninteresting. So, I think this is my least favourite cover of the lot.

So, here it is! A book with major plot twists. Please comment what you think of it if you’ve read the book. Also, comment what you think about the covers. For those of you who haven’t read it yet, pick it up immediately! It’s amazing! Well, until next time then.

Fin!
