"The Secret History" had been lurking unread in my bookshelf for over a year and now that i've finished it, i'm so happy to finally have crossed it off my list. i enjoyed this book thoroughly; this book was very well-written. it was very clever and intriguing. Donna Tartt is a remarkably talented writer and this book and The Goldfinch are the only proofs you need. there are lots of lines or paragraphs i've highlighted solely because of how poetic they were. if you like dark-academia and Greek tragedies with a sprinkle of murder, this one's for you.
