The Secret History

Truly deserving of the accolade a modern classic, Donna Tartt’s novel is a remarkable achievement—both 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 forever, and they discover how hard it can be to truly live and how easy it is to kill.

was also waiting for part 2 contrarian but then decided to just read it myself.

I didn't get the whole dark academia aesthetic before starting the book but after the first 30 pages I started to grasp it pretty well. Due to the writing style which I cant describe as anything else now but VERY 'dark academia' it might be a little streinous in the beginning but once the story starts to progress it is gripping, even though it doesn't grip in a sensationalist way - it's more of a dull ache and it keeps aching through the whole 500 something pages. I would have loved to say that the ache subdues at some point but now I'm done and it seems stronger than at the heaviest parts of the story. I get what all the fuss is about now - this book has done something to me and left me with an ache for I don't know what. Frankly, it is upsetting but I would let it do that to me again anytime.

sorry to keep you waiting everyone, country underwent a coup some time ago

anyway let's get into it.

Most of sense of dark academia will be prevalent in Book One, since after that things do seem to go to shit a lot. The story is interesting enough to keep me reading late into the night but that comes at the cost of skimming through some (probably important) paragraphs.

Nonetheless, the whole elitist snobbery is here on full display and all the characters are unlikeable bastards. Just what I expected.

So to sum it up, it's not the crack I had been promised but it is crack (with some coffee sweetner cut into it because the dealer is a massive crook) that I'm fortunate to read
