My Review ***** This is a stunning work of a literary novel. I devoured this book in just two days. The characters in the book a rightfully endearing, very entertaining, that will have you swept away in the pages in no time. The professor is a delightful secretive person, who shares little with his students he seems to harbor for his own accord and doing. Donna Tartt, writes with such charisma and grace, she should be on every bookshelf in the world.
