Don’t we all like to waste our Sundays curled up in bed with a good book? Maybe that’s just me. Honestly though, there’s no other way I’d rather spend a day off.
On a whim, I decided to buy a paperback copy of The Secret History by Donna Tartt from the Book Depository. The package arrived three days ago, and I immediately dove into it. I’ve seen this book everywhere, but I’ve never bothered to pick it up. Clearly, I’ve been missing out.
This book is a 600 page monster, and it’s taking me longer to read than most books typically do. I think this is partially because of Donna Tartt’s writing style, but also because I want to absorb every word. The story has a dark, haunting quality to it, and I can’t help but feel like there are clues on every page. I’ve been told that this story isn’t a whodunit, but rather a whydunit, since the murder is revealed in the very first chapter. The characters don’t seem very likable, and yet, you can’t help but like them anyway. I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds!
I feel like this one may take me awhile, especially since I have a few Netgalley ARC’s to read and review in the meantime. For today, I have no obligation other than to snuggle up in bed and devour this world that Donna Tartt has created.
