What the community says about The Secret History

    Written on May 11, 2018
    "Donna Tartt, winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for her most recent novel, The Goldfinch, established herself as a major talent with The Secret History, which has become a contemporary classic. Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality their lives are changed profoundly and forever, and they discover how hard it can be to truly live and how easy it is to kill."

    "There's a good reason that this book won a Pulitzer prize. The characters are super compelling, and the plot is kind of like Breakfast Club except with more action and intrigue. "

    "This follows a similar formula to Gone Girl. It's a good and suspenseful read."

    "Not sure this book would be a good read. Seems like it starts off slow which would make me not want to continue with reading it"

    "The Secret History is great. Suspense and thrills throughout."

    "There is a whole world that normal people never get to see or even know about. It involves drugs, alcohol, and violence. Although The Secret History is fictional, it makes me second guess the story and the actual group of students involved in this underworld. This is one of the most interesting reads I have completed in months and can't recommend it enough."

    "Boring as can be. A college professor leads the non desirable students out to the woods to get high. You know those kids who think their interesting because they smoke weed? That's these kids. Nothing happens."
