Staff Reviews


The long awaited third novel from Donna Tartt was well worth the wait. She is back and better than ever in this epic novel of life, death, fate, memory and love. Her characters and plot are carefully thought out and executed without flaw. The art of the novel is alive and well! Rejoice! If you read one novel this year make it this one! — Whitney Kaaz

The Goldfinch is as long and drawn out as Theo’s miserable existence, but that won’t keep you from needing to know how he comes out. Months after finishing I still worry about him, the little boy whose mom was killed in a terrible tragedy, the young man plagued by a moment of foolishness. Tartt’s masterful writing makes the length forgivable. — Amelia Stymacks

A 13-year-old boy takes a painting during the chaos that ensues after an explosion at a New York art museum. The stolen 17th century masterpiece will haunt Theo Decker's life for decades to come; affecting every decision, threatening every attempt of happiness. Powerful storytelling worthy of all the praise! — Alden Graves

Description


A young boy in New York City, Theo Decker, miraculously survives an explosion that takes the life of his mother. Alone and determined to avoid being taken in by the city as an orphan, Theo scrambles between nights in friends' apartments and on the city streets. He becomes entranced by the one thing that reminds him of his mother: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that soon draws Theo into the art underworld.

Composed with the skills of a master, The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America. It is a story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the enormous power of art.
