    Summary

    If this could settle the score, if this could allow Bunny to move on, then didn’t Henry, as his killer, have a duty to allow it and take his place? Perhaps, if karma really was proportionate, he too would die instantly.

     

    Or, Henry Winter has the complete wrong idea about duty.

    Summary

    after reading donna tartt's the secret history, i compiled a list of my favorite quotes from the novel. after this, because i am so unbearably pretentious and annoying, i started to write out my thoughts and analysis of each quote. because there is so little circulating about this book, i decided i'd copy it from microsoft word and put it here for probably zero (0) people to read. enjoy!

    [keep in mind i have no expertise in the world of literature so please don't judge me. i'm gonna post them as i go, so it'll be a few at a time. ok bye]

    Summary

    Henry thought he of all people should know just how quickly a person could die, just how comparatively little force or effort had to be expended to end a life. A punch here, a push there, the wrenching of an arm in just the right way – what did it matter, in the end? It had all finished the same way, with a man dead by Henry’s hand.

    Someone died at the hotel that day, but it wasn't Henry.

    Summary

    Suddenly she hated the way she felt she had to defend herself. She hated the way that she had to stand there and beg him for forgiveness, give him her excuses and try and make him accept that she was an adult, damn it, who made her own choices and could do what she damn well pleased.

    Also known as Charles Macaulay should learn how to knock, or perhaps Camilla Macaulay should learn how to lock doors.

    Summary

    Over the years she’d thought extensively about what she’d say if she saw him again, if she ever did. She wanted to ask if he still hated her; if he ever had. And if he didn’t, why had he hurt her, or done that to her?

    Summary

    He had found that, in his experience – coming to terms with the decision was the agonising part. When it was finally time to act, it was invariably an easy decision; almost a relief.

    Summary

    „At the party? Are you sure?“

    „Yes, absolutely. There was this rather dishevelled looking guy in a chalk-stripe suit – dark hair, dark eyes?“

    „Oh my god“, Theo groaned. He covered his face with his hands.

    Summary

    “There’s a thread of frenzy inside your soul that’s never been plucked. You’ve been aching for it for years, aching to know what it is to lose your rational mind, lose your words, lose every thought in your head, become nothing more than an insensible body, a panting, rutting animal, - but nobody’s ever drawn that out of you, have they? Is it that nobody’s ever known how...or perhaps that nobody has tried?”
