A review by kellyldriver
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt


I had been wanting to read this for so long. Had seen so much about, Best Book of The Year, Pulitzer Prize winner, and on and on. I finally got around to reading it and I have to say I was completely let down. I didn’t like any of the characters and when a book is 771 pages long it’s nice to care about at least one character. I will admit that I did like some parts of it but O feel like it could have been cut down to half it’s size. It got to a point at the end that I skimmed through most of it because it just kept rambling on. I guess I’m glad I finally read it but I just don’t understand all the hype.
