  An excellent read

my favourite of Donna Tartt's novels, this book will suck you into the world of it's protagonists- every reader will be able to relate to Richard on some level as he attempts to catch up socially and culturally to the group, ultimately becoming entangled in a story which will alter the course of his life forever.

This book filled me with an intense desire to learn Ancient Greek, which should suggest how good it is- very few books can instill a want for dead languages- this one manages it by making everything that happens in the novel, bad or good, seem ultimately real, yet covered by the hazy idealism of youth.

A must-read novel.

  A compelling, well written, suspense-filled read.

This is brilliant book you will not be able to put down. A clicky group of advantaged students studying classical greek are joined by a new student who is sucked into the complicated group dynamics and tragedy ensues.
