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. ( )

The good:
A gripping, easy read. 200k words had gone by quite quickly, the last half in one day.
The early part of the book - interesting world and personality building. Memorable characters, an alluring combination of ancient scholarship with hints of mystery.
The ending has a deep, realistic, melancholy feel to it.

The bad:
Nothing much happens after the main event, with 100k words left to go. Well, things do happen, but they are not really interesting.
World building halts completely. The characters develop but along pretty extreme, unrealistic paths. Julian, the most mysterious character doesn't get any significant development and what he does get feels underwhelming. ( )

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

Eh... I knew before I started this book that it wasn't the type of 'crime' book that I generally like. It is not a mystery in any sense but rather a character study of a group of criminals. Unlike some other books of this type (such as [The Getaway] or [The Friends of Eddie Coyle]), the criminals in this case are "nice" college kids. I guess that is why this book got so much attention...

The beginning section of the book reminded me of [The Talented Mr. Ripley] and I suspect that fans of that book will love this one.

A minor problem for me was the narration - Tartt was an excellent narrator but it just felt odd to me to be hearing this first person narrative of Richard coming from a female voice. ( )

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.

For Bret Easton Ellis,
whose generosity will never cease to warm my heart;
and for Paul Edward McGloin,
muse and Maecenas,
who is the dearest friend I will ever have in this world.

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.
