Descrição da editora

A young New Yorker grieving his mother's death is pulled into a gritty underworld of art and wealth in this "extraordinary" and beloved Pulitzer Prize winner from the author of The Secret History that "connects with the heart as well as the mind" (Stephen King, New York Times Book Review).
 Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by a longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into a wealthy and insular art community. As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love — and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle.
 The Goldfinch is a mesmerizing, stay-up-all-night and tell-all-your-friends triumph, an old-fashioned story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention. From the streets of New York to the dark corners of the art underworld, this "soaring masterpiece" examines the devastating impact of grief and the ruthless machinations of fate (Ron Charles, Washington Post).

Amusing

I discovered "The Goldfinch" when I was 11 years old. I saw the movie first, which actually motivated me to read the book. I'm glad it happened that way because the novel turned out to be an incredible experience.
The main character, Theo Decker, immediately captivated me. His journey through so many traumatic events, starting with the bombing at the museum that killed his mother, is heart-wrenching and beautifully written. I fell in love with how he coped with his grief and the struggles he faced as he grew up.
One of the most interesting parts of the book is Theo's relationship with Boris.
Their friendship is intense and sometimes reckless, but it shows how important human connections are, especially in difficult times. Boris's influence on Theo is both good and bad, adding depth to the story.
Donna Tartt's writing is detailed and vivid, making every scene come alive. She captures Theo's internal struggles and his ways of coping with loss and guilt in a very real and touching manner. The themes of finding beauty in a broken world and holding on to hope really resonated with me.
