I loved The Gold Finch. I couldn't put it down! Like b Byond Mar 18, Ms. Tartt has repeatedly avowed that the fun is primary. If she is not having fun writing it, the reader isn't going to either. On the other hand, somebody is taking her seriously; nearly eight hundred pages. My case attests to her power to engage the reader; I took this to the bitter end after finishing 'The Secret History'.
From such shows we find that she is a fragment collector. I suppose she is alert and observant.
There are good bits. On the whole though, much is marinated in drug and alcohol episodes.
Those characters so occupied and those not generally are presented as shallow and duplicitous Brett Easton Ellis was her good writing school colleague. I doubt most will find enlightenment on the practices of antique dealers square and crooked what they were looking for. I'll give it three stars. A page turner, certified important. I don't suppose I'll ever know who is really supporting this. Our certifying agencies of late are seeming rather curious in their choices. I read quite a bit, I am patient, this novel came recommended, I am not sure why it won the Pulitzer.
I echo a few of the comments I have read here, because I just could not get past the first few chapters of this audiobook, despite it being highly recommended. Someone recently said to me that the goldfinch is complete garbage, I think that is far from the truth. I could see how aspects of this book could be boring to some readers but I was all in from start to finish. The beginning, ending and a lot in the middle is a major snoozefest.
The editor really dropped the ball on this one. The book is simply too long, for no reason, but hey it won a Pulitzer so what do I know. It took forever to finish and I was unsatisfied from the ending and generally disappointed that I wasted my time.
Three people recommended this book to me. I was extremely disappointed. The basic storyline was somewhat interesting, however it was about pages too long. I don't mind reading lengthy books, but half of the words in this one added absolutely nothing to the story. There were so many passages that were redundant, unnecessary, and extremely boring. I kept reading with high hopes that it would get better. It didn't. Interestingly enough, AFTER I finished it and talked to various reader friends, I found no one else who liked it, other than the original three who recommended it.
I definitely do not recommend this book. Why does it cost so much, a thing like from kindergarten class? But even these soul-free, sealed-off places are drenched with meaning, spangled and thundering with it. Sky Mall. Portable stereo systems.
Mirrored isles of Drambuie and Tanqueray and Chanel No. I look at the blanked-out faces of the other passengers—hoisting their briefcases, their backpacks, shuffling to disembark—and I think of what Hobie said: beauty alters the grain of reality.
And I keep thinking too of the more conventional wisdom: namely, that the pursuit of pure beauty is a trap, a fast track to bitterness and sorrow, that beauty has to be wedded to something more meaningful.
Only what is that thing? Why am I made the way I am? Why do I care about all the wrong things, and nothing at all for the right ones? What if the heart, for its own unfathomable reasons, leads one willfully and in a cloud of unspeakable radiance away from health, domesticity, civic responsibility and strong social connections and all the blandly-held common virtues and instead straight towards a beautiful flare of ruin, self-immolation, disaster?
Is Kitsey right? If your deepest self is singing and coaxing you straight toward the bonfire, is it better to turn away? Stop your ears with wax? Ignore all the perverse glory your heart is screaming at you? Set yourself on the course that will lead you dutifully towards the norm, reasonable hours and regular medical check-ups, stable relationships and steady career advancement, the New York Times and brunch on Sunday, all with the promise of being somehow a better person?
Or—like Boris—is it better to throw yourself head first and laughing into the holy rage calling your name?
That first glimpse of pure otherness, in whose presence you bloom out and out and out.
A self one does not want. A heart one cannot help. Which is perfect. You do? I thought, bewildered. A matter of self-preservation?
