5.0 von 5 Sternen Truly a modern classic, 11. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Secret History: A Novel (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.
