Reader recommendation: The Secret History

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


For the second time, I am reading Donna Tartt's masterful book, The Secret History. It's every bit as spine-tingling as when I first read it years ago. Set in rural Vermont, it's the story of six very unique, strange, off-balance, college students who find themselves drawn together in a web that pulls them relentlessly toward mayhem, inner turmoil, and eventually evil-doing. Scary stuff!!!!!
