A review by rocks4cats_lower
The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt

adventurous dark emotional sad slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? N/A
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


It was a bit long for me (beginner reader) but it was so worth it. Anyone saying it was boring, yea sometimes the descriptions were long, but it was all necessary for the book. It’s not an quick action fantasy or whatever, it shows mc’s emotions and thoughts, good and bad, in the best way possible.
