In this brilliant novel, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Donna Tartt gives us a richly textured and hypnotic story of golden youth corrupted by its own moral arrogance.
Richard Papen had never been to New England before his nineteenth year. Then he arrived at Hampeden College and quickly became seduced by the sweet, dark rhythms of campus life -- in particular by an elite group of five students, Greek scholars, worldly, self-assured, and at first glance, highly unapproachable.
Yet as Richard was accepted and drawn into their inner circle, he learned a terrifying secret that bound them to one another ... a secret about an incident in the woods in the dead of night where an ancient rite was brough to brutal life ... and lead to a gruesome death. And that was just the beginning ...
I love this book and the author's narration. I felt as though I had the rare privilege of listening to a book from the author's perspective and voice. The book is absolutely incredible!!! The narration brought the vivid characters to life in a way I would not have imagined without the audio. Hang in there in the beginning. It only gets better!
Love her voice and book is interesting
I purchased the book today and i love her voice and reading skills. I purchased other books before and I couldn't finish them because the reading was horrible. The guy was too loud and his voice was so annoying. She did amazing job I understand every single word and English is my second language, her voice makes me calm and I am loving it.
I absolutely adore this book and her narration is perfect. Wouldn’t change a thing.
