Glacially paced, very much with the connotation of being steady and inexorable. (Thank goodness for audiobooks; still, 20 hours is a lot.) Incredibly campy.

I'm never going to be over the fact that she named the twins who sleep together Charles and Camilla. How much of an upper-class twit in-joke was this in 1992?

The teacher, Julian, is a side character at best. His sexuality is lampshaded and played for laughs more than present; early on I could have sworn we were going to get a Julian/Henry relationship. I never had any doubt how the ending was going to go down. I was only surprised he didn't turn out to be two steps ahead of his students.

There are so many books and movies that must be intentionally riffing on this one---[b:The Likeness|5941114|The Likeness (Dublin Murder Squad, #2)|Tana French|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1538062804l/5941114._SY75_.jpg|6504351] was one that occurred to me.

I don't think this book needed to be 559 pages but it sure kept me flipping them to find out how it all ended. At a couple points I was so stressed about what was happening (like Bunny not going on a walk at a certain time, or when THE LETTER makes an appearance) that I felt like I was personally the one all caught up in the scheme.
Tartt's writing itself and the unsettling, unreliable characters she has crafted are certainly the strengths of the novel and make up for a slightly predictable plot and lackluster ending, but again, I was absorbed by them anyways so that says a lot. I'm definitely wanting to read more of Tartt's work to see what she has to offer. ( )

look, i cant take it anymore. I got to about 60% and i think its safe to say that if i read any more, i will die. i found myself highlighting quotes relating to death, and wishing that it too would come upon me if this book didn't speed up. (spoiler alert, it never speeds up)
"I wondered what it would be like to fall and break my head open on one of those bright rocks"
me too cuz, me too
Perhaps this is a problem only faced by me, but Donna Tartt has a way of writing where ill be engaged for a good 30 pages, and then simply wish the characters would all disappear the next.I hated all the characters, and i know i know, you're supposed to hate them, but it wasn't even a nice fun hatred, No. These characters are so annoying and full of themselves that i simply could not find myself caring what happened to anything or anyone. Im not going to subject myself to reading another 200 pages of absolutely nothing when everything has already been done. At this point, there is nothing Donna Tartt can shove in the ending of this book that is worth me risking death by boredom attempting to finish this. thank you good night ( )

I read this book a number of years ago, ten or so, and I found it off putting then. The characters were odd, annoying, and pretentious, even the one with a working class background, who was the narrator, and therefore wholly unbelievable. Since my book club is reading this book, I was not relishing the idea of re-reading it, so I got the audiobook. The author, Donna Tarrt, read it, which I found to be an odd choice given that the story is told in the first person and the narrator is a man. Hard to believe, the audiobook annoyed me even more than the print version. It seemed to me a vehicle for the author to show off how much she knows about classical studies. I read a number of glowing reviews about this book before the first time I read it, leaving me to wonder if I was not in the right frame of mind or simply missed something. Nope. It did not improve the second time around. ( )

Donna Tartt writes a novel every decade, in her words "sentence by sentence", that define Gothic. This is her first, an absorbing psychological novel ,based loosely on her college years at Bennington. It seems to have started a trope of creepy secrets shared by classics students. Tartt's other novels, The Little Friend and The Goldfinch are more complex, and equally amazing. ( )

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.
Republic, Book II
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.
