Does such a thing as 'the fatal flaw,' that showy dark crack running down the middle of a life, exist outside literature? I used to think it didn't. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Format: Taschenbuch
Donna Tartt's first (and only) novel is, in my humble opinion, one of the most exciting books of the 20th century! It's one of those rare books that is both, intelligent and thrilling! I had to read it in one go, getting hardly any sleep during those days, yet always hoping that it wouldn't be finished too soon! Set in an New England élite college, 'The Secret History' manages to introduce the reader to the world of ancient Greek mysticismon the basis of a modern-day murder mystery.Ms. Tartt's writing is so elegant and powerful, yet so thrilling it takes your breath away.I bought this book shortly after its initial release in 1992 almost by accident: I was waiting for a plane in Frankfurt airport and decided to buy a book in the airport bookstore. Somehow the cover of 'The Secret History' caught my interest. And what a surprise... Since then, I have read this book 3 times and it never failed to thrill and enthrall me, time and again.Highly recommended, a definite must-read !!Matthias Gumz - Berlin, Germany

7 von 7 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Peter Berlin VINE-PRODUKTTESTER am 20. Januar 2008
Format: Taschenbuch
The book is exceptionally well written and has an interesting plot with remarkable characters that keep your interest to the very end. It is told in the first-person perspective by a young college student from a a humble background who becomes a member of a clique whose members are from a a better social class, well, at least some of them. Their privileged background doesn’t really help their characters and morals, so very soon a murder occurs which needs to be covered up. The reader learns early on about the murderers so the tension lies, among other things, when the murderers will be discovered. Nothing is, however, that easy or even what it seems. The author keeps you guessing till the end, but then the novel is more about the moral depths in all of us than a simple tale of murder and cruelty. Very recommendable.

5 von 5 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Brent R. Herring am 27. Juni 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
The Kirkus review is way off the mark, the usual drivel in search of profound statements. I don't know what he/she has been reading, but I will say, this is a story which reaches to the primal streak in all our souls. The story is fantastic. The detail is worthy of Michener but focused entirely around emotions and affairs of the mind of people, those elusive, rational yet clearly unpredictable qualities all of us are afraid of revealing or even thinking for fear we could get get comfortable with being the monsters we know humans are capable of. The story revolves around the fallacies of life, the follies of thinking, and the lines of so-called normality we all brush up against and fear we might cross. And this book lays out those fears, that indeed, in a different time and place, we are all capable of not only seeing the demons inside us most clearly but embracing them to act uncivilly in the most civilized manner. A great read, but be prepared to have a more than passing knowledge of Classical history. A good reference to the Classics will be helpful, for many of the references serve only to underscore the truly barbaric nature from hence we all sprang. On a different note, being from Vermont I was a tad dismayed with the apparent lack of knowledge of the area displayed by the author, which took away from the credibility of the story. Another failing on the part of the author and the editor(and contradiction) to clearly establish the time period. If it's the early to mid 60's (which is the right time frame for the feelings and practices) then there are at least three references which cause someone who pays attention to that consternation (I know, it's only a story!) I'll still give it 5 stars, and hope I never visit the depths of my mind as these characters do.

4 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von That one guy am 11. Dezember 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
I read this book the summer after it came out and it changed the way I look at contemporary literature. The characters are well-developed and you learn to know them as if they were your friends down the street. Eventually, as if you've known them for years. The descriptive details that Ms. Tart uses paints the scenes beautifully. She truly captures the feel of each season as the book unfolds. I have two copies of this book. I read it every winter and it reminds me that the contemporary literature isn't dead yet. Those who don't like this book, i'm going to guess, may lack the skills to comprehend the many references to popular culture and classical literature and art. For those of you clued in and intelligent, you'll wish you'd have found it years ago. A read you won't put down until it's finished, this book is for unpretentious, well-read intellectuals who think most books that are written today are simple formulas by people out of touch with the real world. The Secret History is written by a brilliant young writer for clued-in young readers, simply put. If you don't understand this novel, you probably weren't supposed to. And please, please Donna Tart: Those who read this book and feel it, are patiently awaiting your second novel.

Format: Taschenbuch
There is no question that Donna Tartt is a writer of great talent. She masterfully creates her characters and vividly potrays their isolated world. The mystery is well-paced and makes reading this book a very intense pleasure. Perhaps "pleasure" is not quite the right word, however, because my ultimate feeling from this book was deep depression. The characters are revealed as vapid, egocentric, spoiled rich kids with no moral compass whatsoever, and -- for all their academic brilliance -- too ignorant to realize their fundamental weakness. Tartt's detailed description of the characters' downward spiral into alcohol and drug excess demonstrates a powerful talent. Unfortunately, "The Secret History" uses that talent to present a story that is both troubling and depressing. I have read far less talented writers who succeeded in identifying, examining and explaining noble aspects of the human spirit. There is none of that here. Perhaps that is why the book has remained so long on my mind: I wonder what Ms. Tartt could do if she focused her enery on a broader world -- the world beyond the snobby, amoral world of privileged preppies and their wannabe hangers- on.
