I read this book AFTER I read The Goldfinch, based on the recommendations of many friends and family members and I was disappointed. There have been many comparisons of The Goldfinch to The Secret History but I did not find them. In fact, all of the aspects that I loved about Tartt's writing in The Goldfinch, such as her characters and rich descriptions, irritated me with this story, which I found to be unrealistic. I also did not enjoy any of the characters the way that I did with The Goldfinch.
