Sobre o livro
THE BESTSELLER THAT DEFINED AN AGE
'Everything, somehow, fit together; some sly and benevolent Providence was revealing itself by degrees and I felt myself trembling on the brink of a fabulous discovery, as though any morning it was all going to come together---my future, my past, the whole of my life---and I was going to sit up in bed like a thunderbolt and say oh! oh! oh!
'Under the influence of a charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at a New England college discover a way of thought and life a world away from their banal contemporaries. But their search for the transcendent leads them down a dangerous path, beyond human constructs of morality.

Esta obra é tão perfeita que eu não sei o que possa dizer que vá acrescentar alguma coisa, mas decerto que é impossível pousar este livro. A escrita é fenomenal. Recomendo a todos os amantes dos clássicos gregos e romanos, mas também de bons romances com suspense e um lado mais negro.
