A brilliant read - and reread,
This review is from: The Secret History (Paperback)
A brilliant book and one of my all time favourites.
The story is completely believable, but very frightening. I made the mistake as reading it as a bedtime book and found that I was too scared to read on, but too frightened to put it down and not find out what happened next,
It captures so well the strange bonding of disparate friendship groupings at college, a timeout from the real world, and the clash of the college and home environments.
I have also enjoyed rereading it to try get beyond the narrator's version of events but, while I sometimes think I may have seen "something else", it remains mysterious .
