The Goldfinch Summary î 108 And at the center of a narrowing ever dangerous circle The Goldfinch combines vivid characters mesmerizing language and suspense while plumbing with a philosopher's calm the deepest mysteries of love identity and art It is an old fashioned story of loss and obsession survival and self invention and the ruthless machinations of fat. I Boris character in this book will give you honest opinion Very honest If you are reading this asking yourself should I read this book which is 771 pages Very heavy not that The Idiot was not 656 pages so not length I am afraid of If you are wondering should I read I answer for you already and say no I am one of best things in book at least not all the time moody gloomy and so stupid I do not not even look in package Even though I am very important character I must tell you not worth your time to read this Okay to read beginning some middle end but if was me better to be having a pop than all the time reading about depressed guy who wastes so many good drugs Bad things happen All the time bad things Does not mean cannot enjoy life Does not mean should make many people spend very much money on depressing book Not to say is not masterpiece to some people but why spend money on this misery Cannot all own masterpiece Potter think he is only one lose mother In book we none of us have mother Does not take 771 pages to figure this out I would maybe read this if just 400 pages as long as there would not be such long stretches without me Potter needs me all the time Not good without me His one girl Pippa is smart not to let him make her into mother If I was my good friend Theodore Decker and could not enjoy life at all I would do better job at killing self Also honest opinion on how they say everyone is reading this book If I tell you jump off cliff you do it Many times I drag Potter from middle of road where he claims to be waiting for car Did I tell him lie in street No So I tell you Only good thing can come from reading this book maybe not even need to finish is lots to talk about with people Much discussion Maybe if book from library or stolen worth it But to buy own heavy copy Could not even drop in canal without Dutch police all over you Is better this way Trust me

The Goldfinch Summary î 108 It begins with a boy Theo Decker a thirteen 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 hi. I have not read Tartt s two previous and by most accounts superior novels In The Goldfinch you can see that the talent is there but something is drastically off in the storytelling The book drags and drags It exasperates with unnecessary detail that calls annoyed attention to a critical lack of credibility throughout The narrator is like one of those panhandlers who stop you on the street and provides too long a story about some travail my mom and I were just mugged they took her to the hospital and I need to get to New Jersey to tell my dad who s deaf but first I have to get to the hospital which is like a thirty minute cab ride away in Brooklyn and she needs this medication that was in her purse which got stolen but I didn t get a chance to tell the EMTs about so I have to find a Duane Reade and get the prescription filled which costs about fifteen dollars if you could just help me out with part of it I ll pay you back like tomorrow I have my address and phone number written down here I am really embarrassed and would never ever ask a stranger for help like this but this was our first ever trip to New York City and we never thought anything like this still happened but They are telling you so much because they want than the average panhandler not uarters or a buck but a ten or twenty They hope the detail dazzles or distracts However the they tell you the you know it s all a lie The extra details only betrayIn The Goldfinch the betraying detail is in things large and small Theo the narrator notices and remembers everything but no one else seems capable of noticing anything in the moment even when it s their job to As a reader you are left wondering for example would a teenager struggling in shock through a scene of devastation have noticed and remembered fourteen years later the names on office doors as he is trying to find his way out of a bombed building You never believe that Theo could have left the museum without anyone noticing him but he has to So an immense amount of detail is added to provide a masking confusion But if he was in the building long enough following the explosion for emergency personnel to arrive begin rescue efforts and then leave the building because of fear of another bomb would there have been a door within the cordoned off perimeter that didn t have police and emergency workers watching itReduced to a plot line everything in the story can be made plausible transformed into 771 pages of excessive description and your skepticism is teased and taunted from the beginning and at every turn of the pageA book this long needs to be put down freuently you are at your stop on the subway it s time to move a load of laundry from the washer to the dryer time for a meal or bed Only once did I put The Goldfinch down with regret that I couldn t continue reading Every other time I was relieved At page 100 200 and even at page 700 I wasn t sure I was going to continue reading until the end This isn t to say the Tartt can t craft a sentence isn t well read or a capable researcher or smart as a whip She can and is But in execution this is tied for the most tedious and disappointing reading experience in 2013 The Goldfinch is the story of a stolen painting and a lost boy and the many bad decisions he makes influenced by bad genetics and the bad example of his father by the trauma of violence of the worst kind and several kinds of dislocation At no point does Tartt convince you that Theo is something other than a poorly realized grand idea and that the plot character and actions are than an academic exercise The novel has been called Dickensian in its marketing campaign and by some critics It has also made The New York Times s list of five best works of fiction in 2013 Both facts baffle me beyond words

Donna Tartt è 8 Summary

The Goldfinch Summary î 108 S unbearable longing for his mother he clings to one thing that reminds him of her a small mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of artAs an adult Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiues store where he works He is alienated and in love. This was a huge disappointment for me The opening New York sections were excellent the description of the museum bombing and the whole Mansfield Park thing Tartt has going with Theo and the Barbour family all of this works beautifully I was excited to keep on reading to see where it all ended up but once things move to Las Vegas the story takes a seriously wrong turn I seem to be a minority opinion here but there you have it I do remember sitting up all night in 1992 reading The Secret History But this is something elseI have to wonder for whom Tartt thinks she s writing Does she really imagine that intelligent adult readers are going to be enthralled with hundreds of pages detailing the antics of a pair of burned out druggie teenagers who spend their time smoking weed swilling vodka and dining on packets of sugar and whatever junk food delicacies they can boost from the local supermarket Well perhaps they will the book is on the NYT besteller list But once all the hype and interviews die downwho knows The comparisons to Dickens are particularly inappropriate Dickens wrote about orphans and other unfortunates who are on the receiving end of undeserved bad luck but his characters struggle against degradation and dissipation Poor little Joe the crossing sweeper sleeps in Tom All Alone s because he has no other choice But here Theo and Boris revel in their sualor and dissipation Boris is the kind of character who seems to exist only in books and movies the burn out loser druggie who is failing all his classes in school but is really a secret genius who reads Dostoevsky and Thoreau in his rare sober and lucid moments Yeahright I ve been to high school Burn outs are burn outsNor is there any hint of Dickens rollicking and life affirming humor in the book In fact there is no humor of any kind whatsoever at least not as far as I read Not a drop of wit No one even cracks a halfway decent dirty jokeAnd then there is Theo s father an inveterate gambler deep into the loan sharks and his aging sexpot girlfriend Xandraboth potentially interesting characters except they are presented in one dimensional terms throughout their stay in the novel and really exist for no other purpose than to end up the way they do at least in the case of Theo s dad Wasted opportunity Too bad I gave up halfway though the book There is just such an incredible ugliness about all or almost all of the characters that I found I didn t care a damn what happened to them and certainly didn t want to spend any time with them The ironic part is that Tartt is an incredible writer a master of descriptive prose attentive to detail and able to create a truly believable world on the page Too bad it s such a rotten world
