Marisha Pessl made a splash with her debut novel  " Special Topics in Calamity Physics" in 2006. She's back with " Night Film", the tale of  a reclusive horror movie director  and his daughter's apparent suicide. The book entered the New York Times best-seller list at #6 this week and is building buzz on the strength of its multimedia components including online, videos, a smart phone app, and more. But is it worth the read? To help you decide, we consult with Day 6 books columnist,  Becky Toyne.
