BY DONNA TARTT
A book this long needs plenty of energy. Take your seat, indulge and enjoy this rollercoaster journey that you can expect from award winning American author, Donna Tartt. But we tell you it’s worth it!
It’s a modern day epic adventure, kicking off with a bomb explosion in the New York’s Metropolitan Museum and follows the young survivor, Theo Decker, who escapes with a valuable piece of art, The Goldfinch and finds himself sucked in to an intoxicating criminal underworld that takes him to the wilder West - Las Vegas.
As a club, scores smashed 10/10. It’s a breath-taking read and definitely one of the reasons you join a book club - to reach the end!
Full of darkness and colour, light and shade.
Perfect for a book club summer read when hopefully you have a little more time.
Or indulge in Tartt's international bestseller The Secret History (1992).
