The Secret History is undoubtedbly a very good book; highly original and fascinating enough to warrant your full attention. What is really impressive is that Tartt manages to keep your attention to the end, despite the fact that you know what's going to happen. There is a murder - and the narrator, Richard, tells you straight off. The development of the story, the plot, and in particular the characters, are all responsible for how good this book is. It also set off my interest in the classics.

Suzy You know already, but I detest this book. Richard is a boring little swot and the girl...whatshername...blinks, simpers and spends much of her time saying dodgy things like 'beauty is terror'. Argh!!
