5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, profound and gripping, 5 Mar 2014
This review is from: The Goldfinch (Kindle Edition)
This novel has everything I love within one cover (even that is intriguing): gripping story that hooks you then takes you on a roller coaster ride for 800 pages; wonderful characters that you would love to meet; a story line which is never predictable; deep and magical philosophy of life and exquisite, breath-taking prose. It has a breadth of geography, lifestyle, culture and class. It is a thriller, a crime novel, a love story, a psychological novel and an exploration of life's meaning. The novel kept the picture at its core; such beauty and vulnerability across the centuries. It touched my heart.
This is fiction at its very best. It fired my imagination on all cylinders. It articulated thoughts and feelings which are usually beyond words. It expressed an aesthetic for our age, a contemporary existentialism. Yet it never lost touch with the reality of modern life in America. It has given me such pleasure and I wanted it to last forever.
