This book has strong reoccurring themes of obsessive love, self-destructive behavior, attempts at redemption, but I didn't feel like the protagonist had real depth. In many ways he was stereotypical, and his actions often contrasted in strange ways with his motivations and previous actions. Even though this is a coming-of-age story, it was hard to understand the arc of the character's growth. His progress and regress seemed more random than character-driven.

I was often interested in the artfully-crafted sentences while the events they described bored me. By the end of the book I was rather sick of it, but I remember enjoying the start a great deal.

I think what disappointed me the most about this book was that I was expecting an intricate mystery and instead found a coincidence-driven literary examination of an angsty teenage boy. ( )

I still haven't read the blurb - I need to do that - so I went into this audio book blindly. I'm happy I did because I was so pleasantly surprised that I never knew what was going to happen.

In a nutshell, I enjoyed this book a great deal. The characters were so real and complex, even a good number of the secondary characters, that I felt invested in the various story arcs. The only reason I'm not going five stars is because I felt some of the passages about art and furniture went on too long and I found my attention wandering away from the book while the narrator went on for what must have been pages of background information. Much of it was interesting and certainly showed how vast Theo's knowledge was but it couldn't hold my attention.

I finished the book yesterday evening and I'm actually missing Theo and Boris and Hobie. ( )

I wouldn't recommend this book. It is slow, the protagonist is...deeply annoying to read about, the ending is tritely wrapped up, and all the threads that Tartt spends several hundred pages making don't really go anywhere other than being metaphysically tied together in the last thirty pages, in what reads to me as a last-ditch attempt to bullshit an ending through 'art as an experience' and 'connects people through time', which is told to us directly by the narrator, in a horribly twee epilouge. Do I think that Tartt realised that her highly-anticipated book was really bad, but she'd already blown her advance on women's suits for the author photo, and tried to make it seem literary to paint over all the bad prose and lack of coherent plotline? ...maybe. It's what makes sense to me, because I loved "The Secret History" and think Tartt is in general a good writer. But man, this was painful to read. ( )

Goldfinch follows a boys life to adulthood and his painting that although hidden from sight, plays a crucial role in every aspect of his life since a horrible accident occured. The morals of the child are challenged and are sometimes lost because of his companions or because of his situation, but are also learned through characters that mean so much to him. Overall this was a good read, but found the "action" parts of the book were too forced, and did not fit the style the rest of the book had established. Overall a good read. ( )

Theo records in sensory detail the story of him and The Goldfinch as he moves from an comparatively idyllic life in New York City into a dystopian one. In either world, visual art and craftsmanship are painstakingly described, and seem to rise above daily life. I don't think I'm giving away any spoilers here but I'm trying to put my finger on what Tartt was getting at and am not sure she's clear about this herself. The writing changes in the last chapter and is less diary and more authorial voice. Before then, I thought her main theme was about the power of art (and craftsmanship) both to elevate and to abase -- those who were elevated were Theo (though he's a bit conflicted about it), Audrey, Welty, and Samantha. The others used works of art mainly for profit. Tartt depicts (through Theo's eyes) stark contrasts between a dystopian world without art appreciation and a rarefied one where it's loved and appreciated. ( )

Good things are worth waiting for. . . a tour de force that will be among the best books of 2013.

It’s my happy duty to tell you that in this case, all doubts and suspicions can be laid aside. “The Goldfinch” is a rarity that comes along perhaps half a dozen times per decade, a smartly written literary novel that connects with the heart as well as the mind. I read it with that mixture of terror and excitement I feel watching a pitcher carry a no-hitter into the late innings. You keep waiting for the wheels to fall off, but in the case of “The Goldfinch,” they never do.

It seemed like the kind of room where a call girl or a stewardess would be murdered on television.
He's telling you that living things don't last--it's all temporary. Death in life. That's why they're called natures mortes. Maybe you don't see it at first with all the beauty and bloom, the little speck of rot. But if you look closer--there it is.
Every new event--everything I did for the rest of my life--would only separate us more and more: days she was no longer a part of, an ever-growing distance between us. Every single day for the rest of my life, she would only be further away.
But sometimes, unexpectedly, grief pounded over me in waves that left me gasping; and when the waves washed back, I found myself looking out over a brackish wreck which was illumined in a light so lucid, so heartsick and empty, that I could hardly remember that the world had ever been anything but dead.
When I looked at the painting I felt the same convergence on a single point: a flickering sun-struck instant that existed now and forever. Only occasionally did I notice the chain on the finch's ankle, or think what a cruel life for a little living creature--fluttering briefly, forced always to land in the same hopeless place.
