 Tedious and somewhat repulsive and confusing.

I will start by saying I loved The Goldfinch. Loved it. So, it was interesting to see how Tartt’s brilliant writing was shaped and honed during the intervening years. But that writing could not redeem such tedious and pretentious characters. None of them were genuinely interesting, or remotely believable. I went to college during the years this seems to have been set, and almost none of it rang true. NO ONE wore fancy suits around campus, even for dramatic effect or as a pretentious affectation. And I went to a massive and diverse university. The characters run around in a drug and alcohol-soaked haze. Okay, that much rang true for the late 80s/early 90s, but they were way too functional for spending so much of their time so heavily inebriated. Richard says Bunny was well liked, but he was a ridiculous caricature, and his behavior was relentlessly boorish. How charming! I dunno… I just found it impossible to suspend my disbelief, because there was no payoff for doing so. And instead of being able to relax and enjoy Tartt’s fantastic gift for writing, I was constantly brought out of the story with thoughts of “this doesn’t sound like something that could have happened!” or “I hate these people and don’t care WTF happens to any of them!” I’d say skip this one. Just read The Goldfinch. It’s worth it.

A superior and engaging work of paradigms…really a microcosm of the dispassionate elite. Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Donna Tartt offers up a unique look at a vastly disordered set of personal and moral values that become ensconced within a group of ill fitting, often puerile and misanthropic students at a prestigious Vermont college. Forming and then further refining each character (we fundamentally have six main actors outside of our narrator) to the degree that each becomes his or her own immensely flawed persona, Tartt then furthers the narrative by weaving a masterful thriller, combining intellect with meritable readability, making “The Secret History” certainly worthy of inclusion into ’s 100 Books To Read in a Lifetime.

Richard Papen, our narrator, is a sort of California expat, transferring to Vermont’s Hampden College from a small Northern California community college. Desperate to continue his studies in the Greek Classics, he reaches out to the only professor who teaches this curriculum at the college, one Julian Morrow, a wonderfully eccentric intellect who seemingly chooses his students with an odd personal/intellectual criteria and who then demands their complete and utter loyalty while assuming their entire syllabus and becoming their principal teacher.

Initially turned away after confronting Morrow, Papen nevertheless gets accepted into the course following an encounter with the group of students in the campus library one evening. This faction (their “leader” of sorts, Henry Winter, twins Charles and Camilla Macaulay, the loud and obnoxious Edmund Bunny Corcoran and the abstract Francis Abernathy) are noted for being rather standoffish on campus, almost socially outcast while also being looked upon as offbeat and peculiar. Fitting in immediately though, Papen finds himself initially mollified with his station at the college, being invited to lunches and dinners at the twin’s apartment and spending a good deal of time on long weekends at Francis’s Vermont country estate.

Soon though he witnesses the true inner workings of this group…secret conversations and side meetings are being convened most notably by Henry, which lead to one evening finding the group (minus Bunny and Richard) transformed somewhat “supernaturally” into a chemically induced awareness, attempting to achieve an ancient Greek “higher consciousness” state whereby anything becomes possible. Things, of course get out of hand and the balance of the book concerns the intrigue involved with this surprising and deviant outcome. Each character, seemingly already heavily developed, suddenly becomes not as previously thought…Tartt is exquisite here with the demanding role of emotional roller-coaster for each persona, giving additional depth and believability to each. All of our actors undergo severe and manifest transformations with the result, at times, being rather shocking.

A work that requires a commitment (559 pages in paperback form) but is nonetheless rewarding, “The Secret History” was Donna Tartt’s literary masterstroke prior to her Pulitzer winning “The Goldfinch.” A beautiful combination of intellect and rarefied mystery, this book will have you turning the pages and contemplating not only the human condition but those rare circumstances where one becomes thrust into and must immediately consider one’s actions. I thought this a brilliant vehicle for introspection and examination into one’s own personal character and I believe many readers will come away with the same thoughts.
