Special Topics In Calamity Physics - Marisha Pessl I liked the literary themes, the main character, and her relationship with her dad. The last third was a fantastic mystery story, and is the main reason this gets four stars. Overall it is a bit too derivative of [b:The Secret History|29044|The Secret History|Donna Tartt|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327733397s/29044.jpg|221359], but the supporting characters in the inner circle are not nearly as well realised. There never seemed a credible reason why the teacher, Hannah, would select that group of students to hang around with and they almost never got rose above basic stereotypes.
