Narrator took a bit getting use to, but did a fairly good job at expressing different characters.
Story left me wanting to know what happens next.
Sime plot points a little too over the top.... talking furniture was a bit much.
Overall entertaining story that was fun to listen to but lacked the intensity of other paranormal stories.

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.

The entire story is so intense and sad and wondrous all at the same time. Sometimes I was rooting for the main character, Theo. Sometimes I wanted to reach in the book and shake him. I have never read a story quite like this one.

It's 1942 and talented young artist Emily Torrance is brutally murdered. Seventy-five years later, Jim Mercer, a reporter for the LA Times, covers a J. Paul Getty Museum showing of Emily's work and is smitten by her self-portrait. Eventually becoming obsessed with the slain artist, Mercer investigates her murder and discovers something the cops of 1942 missed: evidence of Emily's killer, but more - proof of time travel.
