This review is from: The Goldfinch (Kindle Edition)
Its a very long book, I stuck with it, as I always feel a loyalty to a book, I hate not to finish one. But this did not repay my steadfastness. The first part is grand, interesting story about a boy who loses his mother. But during the last part, I found myself skipping page and pages of waffle to get to the end. I read this on my kindle and that is what stopped me from flinging the book across the room when I reached the end. I loved Secret History so feel betrayed and let down by this book.
