Captivating, very hard to put down. I have always been intrigued by English boarding schools , their secrecy, rituals, internal hierarchy... this one tops them all ... and could very well exist . Revisiting the classics so artfully blended in the plot increases the reader's interest .The inner beliefs and psychological depth of the main protagonist are well developed. The eerie and oppressing atmosphere of this isolated institution adds to the mysterious aspect of this engrossing story. Beware, the prologue is a spoiler.
