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.

A Rare Good Read

Mesmerized me for an entire weekend...a shadowy mystery that reminds me of The Magus, My Cousin Rachael..the characters, the of those books to read over and over.

The Secret History

Intelligent. Dark.


I found this book through a recommendation from a blog, it took a while for me to purchase the book, but boy, it was definitely worth it. The author put their heart into this book, making you feel as if the narrator, Richard, was literally talking to you and making you feel as if you're living every detail. It's such an amazing book, with rich words, and every sentence you read makes you want to read more and more. I couldn't take my eyes of my phone while reading this. This is a MUST GET! I loved it, and I know that you will too.
