The Prestige - Christopher J. Priest

Staff Pick

The Prestige, as directed by Christopher Nolan, is one of my favorite films of all time. As it turns out, the book from which it’s adapted isn’t too shabby either. The story of two magicians trading pranks, tricks, and attacks is almost Biblical in its treatment of the concept of the rivalry, and is so incredibly compelling in its perspective switches that I barely stopped reading before I finished it. Fellow fans of the film adaptation need not worry—you’ll know some of the twists, but the two products are so different that they’re nearly two separate works of fiction.
