Although Tartt has a gift for writing and a gift for creating likeable and intelligent characters (Harriet, Ida Rhew, etc.), the plot didn't grab me until about 400 pages in. The climax occurred, but there was no resolution of which to speak. This novel was a disappointment in many ways.

Really? A novel based on an unsolved crime, that after 600 pages never tells who did it? If you're looking to be really pissed of at the end of a long book, search no more,this is it. On the other hand it's very well written. Total waste of superb skills.

I have to be honest, I could not finish this book. The characters were interesting, but nothing happened in the plot! After about 250 pages, I gave up. You might enjoy her first book, "A Secret History" more.

Could not get into this book, it seemed to drag on forever. Other people in my office book club loved it, though.

Good book but bad ending....I liked this book until the end as it did not resolve the whole basis of the story....too bad as it is a long book.
