    The Lessons Characters  106 The Lessonsthis may be one of those books that is a four star book for me but maybe not a four star book for everyone elsefor starters it is a combination of secret history and the talented mr ripley so if you like those things get in line it is about an average man from an average background coming to the attention of a wildly charismatic man and his circle of friendshowever this is a book which simply tells a story that's itno bells no whistles no uncovering the mysteries of the universejust a story about people and the things they do and the choices they makeso why did you like it so much karen1 i love secret history and any time someone writes a book about close knit friends who all live together in a crumbling mansion and are among the careless wealthy entitled elite with a scholarly bent but then there are seeeeeecrets i am a

    The Lessons Characters  106 The Lessons The Lessons Naomi Alderman's second novel is reminiscent of Donna Tartt's famous The Secret History featuring a young and naive narrator from a relatively poor background who enrolls in at a prestigious university Tartt's is located in a sleepy Vermont town where he

    The Lessons Characters  106 The LessonsThis book has a number of trope that I would normally gravitate to a really close knit group of friends academic setting murder mystery and so on however this fell a bit flat for meIf you liked the idea of The Secret History but found it to be too complex then this is probably for you

    The Lessons Characters  106 The Lessons★★✰✰✰ 2 starsThe premise itself was enough to intrigue me A close knit group of friends attending Oxford Yes please Naomi Alderman's style lends itself well for this it has a 'polish' that evokes notions of privilege However the characters and plot do not convey the good ualities of Alderman's style Throughout there is a sort of entitlement which feels hollow Oxford is not the forefront of the story and it is the annoying attitude of the characters which render this novel so self important rather than the 'exclusive' setting The Lessons lacks the compelling characters of The Secret History the atmosphere of The Likeness and the dramatics of If We Were Villains The focus of the novel isn't as clear cut as I expected For

    The Lessons Characters  106 The LessonsAs you may already know The Secret History by Donna Tartt is one of my favourite books possibly my all time favourite Nothing in all the modern fiction I've ever read has matched it so I tend to be interested when reviews compare a new novel to it as they often do particularly with novels by relatively young female authors like this one There are indeed many similarities between the two a

    The Lessons Characters  106 The LessonsThere is an almost endless supply of novels about college friends Brideshead Revisited The Group The Secret History The Line of Beauty The Emperor's Children and at last count 83477 others They all use the same basic formula desperate people make intense friendships by virtue environment than choice and are led by the most charismatic of the bunch into making bad decisions and the same basic characters the snob the innocent the addict the rich one the charity case Thelma and Daphne In order to stand out within that huge pack a novel needs to be at the very least excellent Enter The LessonThe sun of this group of collegiates is the flamboyant and impossibly rich Mark The satellites are James Simon Emmanuella Jess and Franny A lifetime of reading has already taught you that there will of be affairs changing partners tested loyalty betrayal financial success financial ruin and tragedy The author Naomi Alderman brings nothing new to the plot of The Lesson but then the plotline for this k
