Book Review: The Secret History

The Secret History

By Donna Tartt

Review by Claude

This book will make you drop everything! From its shocking first page to the very last word, this psychological thriller is filled with mystery and murder. Tartt’s masterful writing immerses us in an exclusive and intoxicating world of secrets. The characters are witty and eccentric, conceited and clever. They create a seductive web that draws us in alongside our friendless and frustrated narrator, Richard Papen. This book will leave you gasping for more as Tartt laces her addictive, eloquent prose with scatterings of antiquity and mythology, making it all the more rich and delicious!This cult bestseller is a unanimous and enduring staff favourite. Perfect for book clubs.
