"The Goldfinch is sprawling and wonderful. Tartt can detail the process of antique furniture restoration, make you see in your mind a painting that you’ve never seen with your eyes, mine the depths of grief and unrequited love, and make you care about all of it. It is all inextricably bound, what one of my co-workers described as Dickensian. Despite its near 800-page length, I lugged the book on a trip to NYC with me because I couldn’t even think about leaving it behind. I wanted to stay with the characters without pause. Like Donna Tartt’s other novels, The Goldfinch will stick with me in the best possible way – when a story is close to your heart for the mere fact that it is a great story, one that spellbinds you and demands your attention."— Consuelo
PRAISE FOR THE GOLDFINCH
"A long-awaited, elegant meditation on love, memory, and the haunting power of art....Eloquent and assured, with memorable characters....A standout--and well-worth the wait."--Kirkus (starred review)
"Drenched in sensory detail, infused with Theo's churning thoughts and feelings, sparked by nimble dialogue, and propelled by escalating cosmic angst and thriller action, Tartt's trenchant, defiant, engrossing, and rocketing novel conducts a grand inquiry into the mystery and sorrow of survival, beauty and obsession, and the promise of art."--Booklist (starred review)
"There's a bewitching urgency to the narration that's impossible to resist. Theo is magnetic...The Goldfinch is a pleasure to read."--Publishers Weekly
