Customer Review

on 20 July 2002
Having just finished this today I wanted to share how much I enjoyed this wonderfully written novel. Tartts erudition absolutely leapt out of this novel so many times, yet her skill in characterisation and control of the plot meant this was the icing on the cake rather than something to be intimidated by. Like other reviewers on this page I too felt absolutely engulfed in the setting and atmosphere of the Vermont location. The narrator character, Richard, was superbly drawn and through him Donna Tartt was willing to take the time ( as not a lot of contemporary authors do with half an eye on a potential screenplay ) and literary effort to develop situations, characters and motivations which were a joy to read and be swept along with. Truly I believe there are many more layers within this great novel to be discovered in future re-reading, which I am already looking forward to. A novel about remorse and the consequences of terrible actions - it will, as it did me, leave you deeply moved by the power of great writing.
