Donna Tartt Ý 8 Summary

Donna Tartt Ý 8 Summary Read & Download ß eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ý Donna Tartt Summary The Secret History ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Un profesor de literatura clásica con mucho carisma y pocos escrúpulosLos chicos sueltan comentarios en griego y se ríen de la ingenuidad y la torpeza de los demás pero bien mirado se pasan el día bebiendo y engullendo pastillas h. The first paragraph of The Secret History roughly sums up the mood of the book In it the narrator Richard Papen says that he thinks his fatal flaw is a morbid longing for the picturesue at all costs If you can relate to these words chances are you ll love The Secret History If not you ll probably wonder what the fuss is all about Personally I can totally relate to these words so I love the book I ve read it over half a dozen times and while I do think it has its problems I never fail to find it utterly gripping The Secret History is both an intellectual novel of ideas and a murder mystery without the whodunnit element The reader learns right on the first page that Richard and his friends have killed one among their midst The rest of the book goes on to explain how they came to their gruesome deed and what happened to them afterwards Against all odds it makes for compelling reading despite the fact that you know right from the start who the killers are Such is the power of Tartt s writing that you find yourself turning page after page waiting for answers justifications and possibly a sign of remorse Once these have been dealt with the book loses a bit of its power but until that time it s near perfectDonna Tartt s great gift as a writer is her magnificent talent for description Her evocation of life at a small private university in New England with its oddball mix of ivory tower intellectuals and ditzy cokeheads is rich in detail both shocking and funny If it s not entirely realistic she makes it so Likewise her skill at characterisation is superb While Richard is not entirely convincing as a male narrator a fact I find noticeable every time I re read the book he and his friends make up a fascinating cast of characters six aloof self absorbed and arrogant intellectuals who are obsessed with ancient Greece and don t particularly care for modern life They re snobs and they have major issues but somehow that only makes them alluring Together they form the ultimate inner circle the kind of tight knit group you know should always stay together Which makes it almost understandable that they should be willing to kill anyone who might jeopardise that group dynamic incomprehensible though this may seem to the average readerI can think of many reasons why The Secret History strikes such a chord with me For one thing I have a thing for timeless and ethereal stories and this is one of those Somehow the book has a dreamlike almost hypnotic uality despite it being very firmly set in the rather unromantic 1980s I love that For another thing I have always been drawn to the unabashedly intellectual and this book has that in spades It makes geekdom alluring and I just love Tartt for that I wish I were as geeky as HenryUltimately what I think I respond to most in The Secret History is the friendship aspect The Secret History is very much a book about friendship It s about the very human yearning to belong and be accepted by people we admire It s about the sacrifices we make to keep friendships intact the insecurity we feel when we think we might not be completely accepted by our friends after all and the paranoia we experience when it seems our friends may have betrayed us About the feeling of invincibility we get from having great friends and the melancholy and loneliness that follow the disintegration of a once great friendship The book basically reads like an elegy on a great friendship and one doesn t necessarily have to share Richard s intellectual attitude towards life his morality or even his morbid longing for the picturesue to be able to relate to that It s enough to have yearned for close friendship and been insecure in friendship And let s face it who hasn tI do not think The Secret History is a perfect book As I said I find Richard somewhat unconvincing as a male character there is too much about him that screams female author to me Further the ending is decidedly weak although to be fair I have no idea how else Tartt could have finished her book The story does seem to be inexorably heading in that particular direction Insofar as the ending reflects the disintegration that is going on in the characters lives it could probably be said to be appropriate Still I wish Tartt could have come up with something on a par with the rest of the book If she had this would have been a six star book I don t know many of those
