it was ok
bookshelves: 1001-list, bookclub, 2009

This is on a bunch of Top Read lists, and I'm not really sure why. The premise of a student being killed as part of a secret society's ancient ritual sounded really interesting, but in fact the book falls really flat. Tartt trys to be overly academic, and at the end of the book I couldn't help asking, what was the point?
