I finished The Goldfinch this morning, and the only reason I'm pleased that it's over is that I will no longer have to carry it around with me!
This is my first Donna Tartt novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The vivid descriptions of people and place, and intense emotions experienced by the characters, gave the book a dreamlike quality.
You do not need to have a passion for art to understand the profound impact the titular piece has on Theo and others in the book, their experience is so well imagined that you feel part of it.
