A great read,

I loved Donna Tartt's first two books, so I wasn't surprised to be equally blown away by this one. Beware - it's a long, long monster of a novel, but that only makes it perfect for curling up by the fire and reading to your heart's content. And Donna Tartt knows how to write - line after line of beautiful, almost poetic prose that sits next to argot, slang, violence and cracked Russian. Despite its length, the story seldom falters and builds slowly but relentlessly towards its climax. When I finished the book, a couple of nights ago, I felt bereft. Specially since it'll be another decade before we get the next one!
