What the community says about The Secret History
- "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 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."
