The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

Having heard from my sister-in-law, Janice Northerns, that “The Goldfinch”  by  Donna Tartt was an excellent novel, I proceeded to borrow it from the Abilene Public Library on my Kindle.  Since beginning the journey, I find I cannot put this book down.  The writing is so genuine amidst an all-too-common tragedy in our world today, that the characters so horribly moved by the events truly grasp your heart and your mind.  One might say that the pace in the beginning is almost in slow motion, but isn’t that the way it is reported by people experiencing a sudden, moment of destruction and loss of human life?
