Wanda's Book Reviews

I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles.  (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).

Reading progress update: I've read 240 out of 771 pages.

The Goldfinch - Donna Tartt

I don't read blurbs before plunging into a book, but maybe I should have in this case.


I started this one on the anniversary of my mother's death in an automobile accident and I think I may be a bit over-invested in Theo at this point.  I'm identifying very closely with his feelings on the death of his mother. 


Tartt must have some experience of traumatic loss--she writes it very accurately.
