Goldfinch Audiobook Summary
A young New Yorker grieving his mother’s death is pulled into a gritty underworld of art and wealth in this ‘extraordinary’ and beloved Pulitzer Prize winner that ‘connects with the heart as well as the mind’ (Stephen King, New York Times Book Review).
Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don’t know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by a longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into a wealthy and insular art community.
As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love — and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle.
The Goldfinch is a mesmerizing, stay-up-all-night and tell-all-your-friends triumph, an old-fashioned story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention. From the streets of New York to the dark corners of the art underworld, this ‘soaring masterpiece’ examines the devastating impact of grief and the ruthless machinations of fate (Ron Charles, Washington Post).
Goldfinch Audiobook Reviews
This book held me spellbound from beginning to end. I didn’t want to finish it but I couldn’t wait to finish it to know the ending! The light for me in this dark story was Boris…his character was broken and a little scary yet he was such a strong character and had a loyalty and love for Theo the best he could given his circumstances. Even though Theo was truly the main character, Boris and Hobie were my favorites and the most dimensional for me. This is the only Donna Tartt book I have read but it was exceptional, the feelings it could evoke through the things that happened, how Theo waited for his Mom to come back to the apartment, the happiness when Boris was on the floor with Popper and he was so happy Popper remembered who he was…I felt like I was there with the characters and that’s quite an accomplishment. Loved this book.
