good not great. moody erudite but written by one too young. ( )

Donna Tartt's writing style instantly clicked with me the moment I opened the book and read the words, whispering under my breath on a suitably silent night, the ticking of the clock the impervious bystander and witness: "Does such a thing as 'the fatal flaw', that showy dark crack running down the middle of a life, exist outside literature? I used to think it didn't. Now I think it does. And I think that mine is this: a morbid longing for the picturesque at all costs."

Sure, the dialogues get neurotic, and the Romantic façade sometimes cracks when the main characters start talking like normal humans, and the drug references was a bit too much. But I was completely seduced by the reverie invoked - sometimes shimmery and pale, and at other times resembling the nightmares invoked by sleep paralysis. However, I could understand why this book was so polarising. Readers who prefer their reading to be less flowery and romantic are well advised not to touch this one. ( )

I found this book lurking unread among my boxed-up library during a recent move across State. I read page 1 rather than shelving it and was hooked. Erudite, literary and intriguing. But it’s a big book and sometimes felt over long. Nevertheless, I kept picking it up again and immersing myself in its world of odd characters. Especially the somewhat hopeless and frustrating protagonist, whose voice tells the story. It’s a straightforward and predictable plot, and not a pretty story, but satisfying to the last word. ( )

Way too long for the topic. Could have cut 200 pages out and had a more intriguing story. ( )

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.

Come then, and let us pass a leisure hour in storytelling, and our story shall be the education of our heroes.

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.

The snow in the mountains was melting and Bunny had been dead for several weeks before we came to understand the gravity of our situation. (Prologue)
Does such a thing as "the fatal flaw," that showy dark crack running down the middle of a life, exist outside literature?

...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.
