Simply superb. A dark, utterly convincing story of lost innocence, friendship, and the terrible experience of guilt. I envy anyone who has not read this. Unlike so many novels praised for the quality of the writing, the writing here is so good you don't notice it, you don't see the joins, it carries you with it like a fast-flowing river. Scenes and characters from The Secret History stay with you forever. It is not a perfect novel: one character is peculiarly under-developed (Camilla), and the narrator's family background is rather glibly dismissed, but as a whole, I would say this is one of very few novels from the last 40 years that will still be read in 50 or 100 years' time.

The Secret History is my all time favourite book. I had read it 6 times now over the years (maybe more I have lost count) and still find something new each time. Fabulous. Compelling. It has gotten under my skin in a way no other book has.

She is a master writer who manages to surprise and inform with every sentence. Never dull or mediocre. A gifted author.

This book kept me enthralled and scared the wits out of me, but I loved it. I love all Donna Tartt's books.

I loved the characters and language on this book. Surely a film just waiting to be made? Worth a read.
