by Donna Tartt
Rating: 4 Star
Donna Tartt was working on The Goldfinch for over a decade and this time invested into the novel really comes through during the reading. The long writing process explains the 800+ pages too, this definitely isn't a 'quick' or indeed 'light' read.
As soon as you start the novel, you you immediately feel both the complexity and depth of the world that she creates through Theodore Decker's eyes. The characters, locations, and even dialects of the main protagonists are all very richly described.
