Worth waiting for,

This review is from: The Goldfinch (Hardcover)
I believe it took 10 years of gestation but this is a big and bouncy baby of a novel of Dickensian grandeur.
The characters are boldly drawn and the contrast in "texture" and colour between Manhattan and Las Vegas that she describes sucks you into the narrative better than any cinematic depiction I've ever seen. Having once been a teenage boy I find it quite remarkable how Donna Tartt describes the thinking and emotional roller coasters of such an alien being!
