    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"
    "Meanderingly long"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    More editing please. While the story was interesting and the characters well described, there were too many scenarios that were repeated and repeated, at length which did nothing for the overall story.


    Would you recommend The Goldfinch to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. I had to work to get through this. Had I been reading instead of listening - I wouldn't have bothered past the middle of the book.
