    Private, the world's most renowned investigation firm, has been commissioned to provide security for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Its agents are the smartest, fastest, and most technologically advanced in the world, and 400 of them have been transferred to London to protect more than 10,000 competitors who represent more than 200 countries. The opening ceremony is hours away when Private investigator and single father of twins, Peter Knight, is called to the scene of a ruthless murder: a high-ranking member of the games' organizing committee has been killed.

    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"
    "Don't listen to the critics. Just read it."

    Story
    What did you love best about The Goldfinch?

    It was almost like reading an opera. I was enthralled with each part and each word. Such marvelous writing. Thank you so much. I completely neglected my life for about 4 days while I listened -- I couldn't stop. As a person who knows young people well, the perceptions were "right on." Love, sex, school, drugs, etc. memories & friendships too were amazingly described to a point where I could have cried in parts.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Goldfinch?

    When he realizes that his red headed beauty was not the woman he needed and could love.


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

    Oh, the voice was perfect. As the book changed, the voice changed beautifully.


    If you could rename The Goldfinch, what would you call it?

    I'd keep it the same because it is and isn't about a painting.


    Any additional comments?

    I am excited to read other works by this author.

    Nevada Barr is a brilliant writer and the narrator excellent. But, I had to really push myself through the end. I became a bit much with many loose ends to tie.
