    An irreverent, hilarious insider's look at big-time NCAA basketball, through the eyes of the nation's most famous benchwarmer and author of the popular blog ClubTrillion.com (3.6m visits!). Mark Titus holds the Ohio State record for career wins, and made it to the 2007 national championship game. You would think Titus would be all over the highlight reels. You'd be wrong.

    The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America and a drama of enthralling force and acuity. It begins with a boy. 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 his unbearable longing for his mother, he clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.

    B.J. says: "A stunning achievement - for author and narrator"
    "Best Narrator Ever."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Goldfinch to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely! David Pittu did such a marvelous job bringing each character to life with each of his accents. I'd recommend this one be listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The great characters that Tartt creates. She makes you really care about each one.


    What does David Pittu bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The different accents and personalities of the characters are brought to life by Pittu. I hope to listen to more of his readings in the future.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Theo went home to wait for his mothers return.

    Sophie Dempsey wants to help her sister film a video and then get out of Temptation, Ohio. Mayor Phin Tucker wants to play pool with the police chief and keep things peaceful. But when Sophie and Phin meet, they both get more than they want. Gossip, blackmail, adultery, murder, vehicular abuse of a corpse, and slightly perverse but excellent sex: all hell breaks loose in Temptation.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I absolutely love Jennifer Crusie books and this is another winner. Funny, romantic and little bit of action and drama make this one a winner.
