Going the wrong way,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret History (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.
