Publisher's Summary

Learn what the experts are saying about Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch with this literary review. Dark themes prevail throughout the novel as protagonist Theo Decker copes with the violent and untimely death of his mother. As a 13-year-old boy, Theo's grasp of reality is limited, and the tragic event forces despair and self-defeating behavior. With sophisticated themes like death, abuse, and sex, this book is better suited for a mature audience. If you are looking for an intellectually stimulating audiobook that keeps you guessing, then The Goldfinch may be just what you need.

Avoid This Purchase

What would have made The Goldfinch better?

The Goldfinch is a fine book. I'm reviewing a review of the book. This review seems to have been written by a humorously inept computer program. It is the most insulting book review I've experienced in years, and I'm a middle school English teacher.

What could Expert Book Reviews have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I'm sorry. Nothing could have made this review more pleasant. I'm generally a kind, patient person, but I felt cheated out of a credit with this purchase.

Would you be willing to try another one of Julie Sears’s performances?

No.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Goldfinch?

Again, I'm reviewing a review of the book. The Goldfing, the novel, was splendid. I would cut the entire review from your catalog.

Any additional comments?

Thanks, Hal.

Dreadful. Do not buy this review

What disappointed you about The Goldfinch?

Dreadful review and absolutely not an expert review even though its publisher is called 'Expert Reviews.'. Appalling ' automaton' narration. Not good enough to sell. I enjoyed the actual novel and was expecting a proper assessment of the book. DO NOT BUY. YOU WILL BE WASTING YOUR MONEY.

What could Expert Book Reviews have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Get a reviewer who has actually read the book.

How could the performance have been better?

Get a narrator who does not talk like an automaton. It was appalling.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None. Take it offf your list.

Any additional comments?

Please make it obvious in your listing that it is a review, not the actual novel. The novel ' The Goldfinch' is very good. This review on the other hand is extremely amateur and that's being kind.....
