    More than 20 New York Times best-selling authors team up to create a first-rate serial novel -- a collaboration that combines the skills of America’s greatest storytellers to produce a gripping, spellbinding mystery.

    Overall

    Disappointed. A different narrator for each chapter was annoying and disruptice. The characters never developed to any depth and were almost uniformly unlikable. And the ending was disappointing. Maybe it's a better read on paper but I wish I hadn't wasted the credit on this.

    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"
    "Loved this!"

    What made the experience of listening to The Goldfinch the most enjoyable?

    The book flows beautifully. Descriptive, detailed, it may seem like too much to some, but for me the book came alive.


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

    Wonderful narrator. His character voices were amazing and his main narration voice was perfect, emphasis and inflection in all the right places.


    If you could take any character from The Goldfinch out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Boris. I may not agree with all his views but I enjoyed him.
