Publisher Description

THE BESTSELLER THAT DEFINED AN AGE

'Everything, somehow, fit together; some sly and benevolent Providence was revealing itself by degrees and I felt myself trembling on the brink of a fabulous discovery, as though any morning it was all going to come together---my future, my past, the whole of my life---and I was going to sit up in bed like a thunderbolt and say oh! oh! oh!'

Under the influence of a charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at a New England college discover a way of thought and life a world away from their banal contemporaries. But their search for the transcendent leads them down a dangerous path, beyond human constructs of morality.

The book was good, not so much the audio

The book was amazing and had I just read the book alone I would’ve loved it even more. The narrator wasn’t bad but she just didn’t suit the role. I mean it’s great when authors read their books but doesn’t mean they should and Donna Tartt most definitely should not have narrated the book.

One of the best

This book is absolutely unmissable and even better when read by the author. Donna has an incredibly charming accent, and easily switches between voices for each of the characters.

Incredible story

Extremely well developed characters, great story and makes one think a lot- I can definitely recommend this.
