It seems as though people either love or hate this book. I haven’t really read any reviews so I have no expectations. The Goldfinch is a long read! It’s about 31 hours long on audible. I have read that many people loved The Secret History by Donna Tartt so that might have to be my next read. Have you read The Goldfinch?

The Goldfinch, 4 ✨ . “and I'm hoping there's some larger truth about suffering here, or at least my understanding of it -- although I've come to realize that the only truths that matter to me are the ones I don't, and can't, understand.” . I absolutely loved The Secret History so it’s no surprise I rated this one so highly. it’s beautifully written, the characters are complicated and nuanced, the plot alternatively divine and bleak. it’s definitely a labour of love, demanding attention and emotion, but despite its length you keep going back to it. it’s SO worth the time and patience. definitely one I won’t forget.
