Review:

The Secret History succeeds magnificently ... A remarkably powerful novel [and] a ferociously well-paced entertainment ... Forceful, cerebral, and impeccably controlled (New York Times)

So irresistible and seductive it's almost a guilty pleasure (Guardian)

A huge, mesmerizing, galloping read (Vanity Fair)

Donna Tartt is an amazingly good writer. She's dense, she's allusive. She's a gorgeous storyteller (Stephen King)

Takes my breath away (Ruth Rendell)

Brilliant and compulsive (Evening Standard)

A haunting, compelling, and brilliant piece of fiction ... Packed with literary allusion and told with a sophistication and texture that owes much more to the nineteenth century than to the twentieth (The Times)

From the Back Cover:

'It takes my breath away, it is so accomplished' Ruth Rendell

'Excellent; Donna Tartt has discovered not the usual collegiate mix of sex, drugs and rock and roll, but a heart of darkness as stony and chilling as any Greek tragedian ever plumbed. A thinking person's thriller' Newsday

'Enthralling. Imagine the plot of Dostoyevesky's Crime and Punishment crossed with the story of Euripides' Bacchae set against the backdrop of Brett Easton Ellis's Rules of Attraction. Ferociously well-paced, remarkably powerful' New York Times

'Brilliant' Sunday Times
