Publisher Description

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).

The goldfinch

This book completely immerses the reader in its world and characters. So much to think about, and Theo, a fully developed and wonderful character, just grabs the reader and demands attention. I loved the story and am only sorry that I will have to wait so long for Tartt to write another.

The Goldfinch

It could have been a great book because of its story of loss and love. Instead the pages are filled to the brim with the ramblings of a pathetic drug addicted and self destructive protagonist.

Wow

I read her other two books many years ago - both memorable books, so when I saw another from Donna Tartt, I snapped it up. No regrets. This is the bet book I've read in quite awhile. Great characters that I loved, despite their imperfections. I can't stop thinking about this book.
