The Secret History by Donna Tartt


I really enjoyed this book, it’s a real page-turner, once I started it, I couldn’t put it down.

This book is about a group of greek students in Vermont’s Hampden College who kept themselves apart from the remains students: Richard is the narrator; Henry is their leader in all senses: Charles and Camilla are the twins brothers; Bunny was a real nuisance to all of them. And Julian is their teacher.

Henry is manipulative among his friends.

Money surpassed their friendship.

After a bacchanal, they accidentally kill a farmer. However, only a second murder occur, the plot takes new direction.

The author is able to provide a surprise ending reminding, in some way, Patricia Highsmith books.
