The Secret History — Donna Tart

The_Secret_History,_front_cover

This is an absolutely stunning book that I just got around to reading. It has language that will fully engage your senses and intrigue your intellectual appetite. Usually, I’m a fan of concise writing, to the point, Hemingway-esque. But, Donna Tartt does something pretty cool here, she writes a stylized Greek Tragedy about Greek Tragedies. It’s not a murder mystery in the sense of ‘whodunit’ but a murder mystery in the sense of ‘whydunit’. I have to say, I was skeptical at first, and it is a long read, but you’ll lose yourself in it.
