10.07.13 A mystery/semi-thriller about an investigative journalist on the trail of a reclusive mysterious underground film director upon his daughter's apparent suicide. The book really starts off great. There's a multimedia approach where they include webpages and newspaper clippings and other forms of composition throughout as well as playing a bit with the layout (lots of black-background pages for instance) that keeps things fresh and draws you in. The last act gets pretty esoteric though and I found myself slogging through parts. The ending is... fine I guess but I personally found it a bit anticlimactic. I definitely liked the first half more than the last half. So it's no Flicker or House of Leaves but it's still a pretty good read and I'm glad I read it.
