    One thought on “The Secret History & The Little Friend”

    1. This was the second time I've read this, and I enjoyed it even more the 2nd time round. It was fun to bring the characters back to life and go through all they went through all over again. There are not many books that have as much work and detail put into them as Donna Tartt does with her books. It almost reads as if it were a true story, and the book was written as a confession to clear its writer's conscience. I recommend reading this with a Kindle if you want to learn a lot of new vocabulary [...]

    2. Very captivating story. My only complaint about Donna Tartt (having now read two of her books) is that she seems to struggle with closing it out. I thought there were a couple of places toward the end where it could have ended with drama, but she prefers to drag out the ending with some (in my view) unnecessary narrative (same issue in The Goldfinch). But she has great style and tells a good and unusual story.

    3. I was a bit worried that the sheer size of this novel would hold me back. As it turned out, it was a relatively quick read for me. Especially the last two hundred pages when I was trying to figure out if the Greek students would get away with everything. It was fascinating, in a terrifying way, to watch everyone fall apart under pressure.
