The Goldfinch

Once in a blue moon a fantastic book comes along, one that you place on your shelf and know you'll read it over and over again. Donna Tartt's masterpiece, The Goldfinch, is one such novel, and even at 700+ pages you'll hope that it doesn't end (at least I didn't). Tartt's first book, The Secret History, was a favorite (and earned a spot on the bookshelf as well). If you crave fantastically written literary fiction, there are plenty of reviews about this new work.  Stephen King's is here:

If you're not a reader, then you're going to really miss out.  At the very least this famous little Dutch painting has gotten a lot more famous thanks to Donna Tartt.

  1. Love all of Donna Tartt's books! The Goldfinch ranks up there as one of my favorites. This is actually her third book. If you haven't read it yet, The Little Friend (written in 2002) is very good.
