Publisher Description

A 'haunting, compelling, and brilliant'(The Times) novel about a group of students who, under the influence of their professor find their lives changed forever, by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Goldfinch

Truly deserving of the accolade 'modern classic', Donna Tartt's novel is a remarkable achievement - compelling and elegant, dramatic and playful.

Under the influence of their charismatic Classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality, their lives are changed profoundly and for ever as they discover how hard it can be to truly live and how easy it is to kill.

'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

Kept me hooked

Great reading, to describe the story it may sound depressing, but I didn't find it so, I would say more of a thriller waiting to read what was next. I would recommend!!

Best book

The best book I have ever read- a true literary triumph. Tarrt weaves a complex world together with eloquent language and intriguing characters.

Intoxicating

Could not put it down. A brilliant web of intrigue and curiosity. Though the ending was a little disappointing.
