***The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

  • Published in 2013, USA
  • Audiobook read  by David Pittu
  • Pulitzer Prize Winner
I enjoyed most of this novel, yet felt the ending dragged out for too long. The excessive details did not enhance my enjoyment or understanding of Tartt's story - which was fairly cut and dry. It is unfortunate to begin a book with one feeling and end it with another; one cannot help but project the last impression on the entire novel.  The premise for The Goldfinch was intriguing, but the outcome was simply average.
