Helpful Score: 10

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.
