Book Review: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt


 

Amazon’s Book of the Year 2013, the much-hyped Goldfinch by Donna Tartt is a hugely compelling exploration of the dysfunction created by the early loss of a loved parent. I fell head-first into a highly emotional world after a dramatic incident early in the book and was carried through the 784 pages by the strong and engaging writing. Highly recommended!
