The Secret History - Donna Tartt 3.5Contrived and utterly unbelievable, right down to the creaky, sometimes unintentionally hilarious dialog. Forget the annoying bacchanal Greek-wank, what contemporary 20 year old talks about going "out of doors" and comports himself as if he walked with great purpose out of Brideshead Manor and off into the Lost Generation? Still, I can't remember when I've had so much fun loathing a full cast of thoroughly detestable characters. (I wish that Dorothy's house Bennington College had landed on the bunch of them.) I have to admit, though, I was so caught up in my outrage, I was sorry to see the whole thing end. The tsuris!
