The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Unfortunately, I'm sensing a common theme among Tart's female characters. They are shallow and exist as objects of desire to the male protagonists, or just to be ridiculed. A lot has been said about it online so I don't need to expand on it.
