  1. I will start by saying I loved The Goldfinch Loved it So, it was interesting to see how Tartt s brilliant writing was shaped and honed during the intervening years But that writing could not redeem such tedious and pretentious characters None of them were genuinely interesting, or remotely believable I went to college during the years this seems to have been set, and almost none of it rang true NO ONE wore fancy suits around campus, even for dramatic effect or as a pretentious affectation And I [...]


  2. A superior and engaging work of paradigms really a microcosm of the dispassionate elite Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Donna Tartt offers up a unique look at a vastly disordered set of personal and moral values that become ensconced within a group of ill fitting, often puerile and misanthropic students at a prestigious Vermont college Forming and then further refining each character we fundamentally have six main actors outside of our narrator to the degree that each becomes his or her own imme [...]

Here s my review the epilogue felt earnt This was because the book felt so very bloody long.It s not a bad book but it s pretty anemic fare when you look closely You d think that ancient Greek would provide a charming and interesting motif You d be wrong Like most of the book, it s thin set dressing for a medium interesting melodrama that doesn t really go anywhere.It s nicely written, but not so much as to ever make you stop and marvel.The characters are strangely thin The plot seems poised to [...]


  5. I read this book on a recommendation, and have to admit that after reading a few pages I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did I do not generally like books that are overly descriptive and feature pretentious prose, in fact I detest classical literature, yet the description and classical language, is what gives The Secret History it s charm.This book was published in 1992, but harks back to a time reminiscent of the early 1900 s in style The language used by some of the characters, namely [...]
