”It is better to know one book intimately than a hundred superficially.”

Pure art. Masterpiece of fiction. I enjoyed it so much and had many hard times putting it down. So brilliant, it’ll haunt me for the rest of my life. ( )

Volevo leggere Dio di illusioni da un sacco di tempo: il medesimo desiderio di molte persone, a quanto pare, visto che in biblioteca non era mai disponibile! Alla fine, però, sono riuscita ad accaparrarmelo e ora eccomi qui a non sapere esattamente quali siano le mie impressioni su questo romanzo.

Teoricamente, Dio di illusioni avrebbe potuto diventare uno dei miei libri preferiti. Donna Tartt è una scrittrice che sa il fatto suo e non ho davvero niente da eccepire sul suo stile. Inoltre, la sua capacità di inglobare la dualità presente nella mitologia greca in un romanzo ambientato venti o trent'anni fa è ragguardevole.

Tuttavia, non posso proprio annoverarlo tra i miei libri preferiti: anzi, probabilmente finirà tra quei romanzi letti e presto dimenticati. Infatti, tutto quello che posso dire di aver provato leggendo Dio di illusioni è un enorme senso di vuoto. Un vuoto che, in parte, credo sia anche voluto, in quanto i giovani protagonisti e il loro insegnante di greco sono persone vuote. Al di là del genio e dell'amore per la bellezza che mostrano al mondo, infatti, sono persone vili ed egoiste, in grado di compiere qualunque nefandezza per mantenere la loro patina di luminosa moralità.

Ora, ho cerebralmente apprezzato tutto questo, ma il romanzo non è mai riuscito a coinvolgermi emotivamente – e non solo perché i personaggi sono sgradevoli. Per quanto mi riguarda, il senso di vuoto ha prevalso e ha fagocitato qualunque tipo di interesse da parte mia. Arrivata a metà romanzo circa, il mio unico desiderio era finirlo e passare ad altro.

Non mi ha coinvolto nemmeno il romanzo di formazione che scorre di pari passo con la trama del giallo. Droga, sesso e rock&roll: non posso proprio dire che sia stato coinvolgente, o anche solo originale, per quanto, lo ripeto, lo stile dell'autrice sia notevole – abbastanza da invogliarmi a leggere un altro dei suoi romanzi e a darle un'altra chance.

I definetly need to re-read this book!
This is one of those books that have so many layers and secrets, that I feel that I didn't understand everything from the first read. Totally fascinated by the idea of the book, and its caracters.
All of the friends have some kind of secrtets but we only know what narrator knows. However, the writer tries to give us clues to discover those secrets but we are too focused on the main story.
Great plot and story! ( )

I tried to read this not long after it came out and failed, and now that I have read it I have no idea why I gave up first time around. It's an astonishingly accomplished and confident novel, one that tackles classic themes (crime and punishment) and is so packed with memorable, believable characters and incidents that it's quite dizzying at times. The story is simple, and a synopsis might back the book's 600 pages seem excessive, but every one adds something. The writing is wonderfully rich and immersive, conjuring up a world that demands attention and pulls the reader in.

Boy is it bleak though, it has a kind of dark inevitability to it, like watching a car crash in slow motion, that I suspect is a lot harder to pull off than it might seem. I was reminded of Scott Smith's 'A Simple Plan' although that, whilst still excellent, is a lesser book. ( )

I read this because several book tubers recommended this as a 'dark academia', and I've just finished Ninth House (which I liked a lot), and was looking for something similar. Obviously this is nothing like that, but that is not the reason why I rate this so low. Firstly, there should at least be one character in a book that I like and for which I would turn the next page. However, in my opinion there was not one likeable character, I hated them all, they frustrated me, all of them. In fact, this was more a work of non-fiction than fiction, as I actually know some people like this in real life, and I honestly try to ignore them at all costs.

As other reviewers said, this book was too long, describing on every second page how all they did was study, lying around, drinking, doing drugs, screwing whatever and whoever, taking pills and smoking. I can write some more, but frankly, I'm tired of this book, and only finished it because I hoped page after page that it would get better. Now, I want to be rid of this and go on with my sober and stable life. ( )

As a ferociously well-paced entertainment, ... "The Secret History" succeeds magnificently. Forceful, cerebral and impeccably controlled, "The Secret History" achieves just what Ms. Tartt seems to have set out to do: it marches with cool, classical inevitability toward its terrible conclusion.

I enquire now as to the genesis of a philologist and assert the following:
1. A young man cannot possibly know what Greeks and Romans are.
2. He does not know whether he is suited for finding out about them.

...how I longed to be an orphan when I was a child!
[They were] sitting at a table that was spread with papers and pens and bottles of ink. The bottles of ink I remember particularly, because I was very charmed by them, and by the long black straight pens, which looked incredibly archaic and troublesome.
[The tutor] reached for a pen in a cup on his desk; amazingly, it was full of Montblanc fountain pens, Meisterstucks, at least a dozen of them.
"Guess what," said Bunny, "Henry bought himself a Montblanc pen." ... He nodded at the cup of sleek black pens that sat on Julian's desk. "How much are those things worth? ... Three hundred bucks a pop? ... I remember when you used to say how ugly they were. You used to say you'd never write with a thing in your life but a straight pen." ... Bunny picked [the pen] up and turned it back and forth in his fingers. "It's like the fat pencil I used to use in first grade," he said. ... "Now, what kind of pens do we all use here? Francois, you're a nib-and-bottle man like myself, no? ... and you, Robert? What sort of pens did they teach you to use in California?" "Ball points," I said.
