In the book The Crucible, one of the main characters surrendered to the lust of her “love” and ended up being the reason for many innocent killings, even the one of her love.

Tartt uses her characters to portray how literature does not shy away from the truth. She exposes her characters; making me develop a love-hate relationship with them.
