Kurzbeschreibung

22. Oktober 2013
WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE

"The Goldfinch is a rarity that comes along perhaps half a dozen times per decade, a smartly written literary novel that connects with the heart as well as the mind....Donna Tartt has delivered an extraordinary work of fiction."--Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review

Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.

As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love--and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle.

The Goldfinch is a mesmerizing, stay-up-all-night and tell-all-your-friends triumph, an old-fashioned story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the ruthless machinations of fate.

Pressestimmen

"Dazzling....[A] glorious, Dickensian novel, a novel that pulls together all Ms. Tartt's remarkable storytelling talents into a rapturous, symphonic whole and reminds the reader of the immersive, stay-up-all-night pleasures of reading."--Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

"The Goldfinch is a rarity that comes along perhaps half a dozen times per decade, a smartly written literary novel that connects with the heart as well as the mind....Donna Tartt has delivered an extraordinary work of fiction."--Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review

"The Goldfinch is a book about art in all its forms, and right from the start we remember why we enjoy Donna Tartt so much: the humming plot and elegant prose; the living, breathing characters; the perfectly captured settings....Joy and sorrow exist in the same breath, and by the end The Goldfinch hangs in our stolen heart."--Vanity Fair

"A long-awaited, elegant meditation on love, memory, and the haunting power of art....Eloquent and assured, with memorable characters....A standout-and well-worth the wait."--Kirkus (Starred Review)

1.0 von 5 Sternen Superficial, shallow, boring and inconsistent 10. Februar 2014
Von B. Lutze TOP 1000 REZENSENT
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This was easily the most overrated book of 2013. I hated it. Let me try to explain why:

1. The constant use of superlative language: Every slam is deafening, every headache splitting, the narrator is "tormented" by small things (not the bombing that takes place in the beginning itself). Donna Tartt writes in a language of a cliche New York snob, where every little thing is forced to mean something or to be special. Horrible.
2. Cultural, but superficial name dropping (all the freaking time): 13 year olds with Palestrina on their Ipods (or Shostakovich), art history books that a kid carries with him, Tupac Shakur courses at high school, and on and on and on. Neither the narrator, nor the main characters are really affected by art. It does not serve any purpose here, other than Tartt showing off, in a patronizing and preaching manner: Disgusting.
3. Oh, boy, her problem with time: Ipods in 1999? Or references to 9/11? The research here is lousy, brands and products appear at times when there were not even launched or invented. Bad job, Donna, what did you do in those 10 years?
4. Length: 770 pages? Really? With endless sections about furniture restoration and drug use? With completely shallow and inconsistent characters, that are sketchy at best?

I am really sorry that I am using the superlative language I complained about myself, but this book was the worst I forced myself to read in a long time. What a waste of time.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too Many Words! 16. März 2014
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It took me a month to read this novel. It was a major investment on my part. I am a slow reader, but even the fastest of readers will have to make a definite commitment to get through it.

I’m not sorry that I read “The Goldfinch.” I just wish I could have liked it more. When I was finished, the first thought that went through my mind was that the book’s page count could have been reduced by half and it would have had not only the same, but likely a greater impact on the reader. Another first gut reaction: too much drug description. Too much alcohol. Again: less could have been more. It got absolutely tiresome reading all this. Didn’t Tartt have an editor? I understand, of course, that everything is beautifully written, but enough is enough.

I was fascinated by the worlds Tartt opened up for us: the life of wealthy New Yorkers via Mrs. Barber & Co; the antique furniture world via Hobie, the restaurator; seedy Las Vegas as seen through the eyes of teenagers who have to live there. I appreciated her craft in building these worlds.

And I thought she did a great job developing her characters. They were life-like. Each had his or her own cadence, quirks, etc . Their inner life shone through. They were complex human beings.

Nonetheless: there was only one character, one character amongst dozens, who we really like: Hobie. And he’s not the protagonist. He’s the mentor character — I suppose metaphorically speaking, the one who not only fixes up the furniture, but other characters, ie. Pippa and Theo, too. But he’s not the protagonist who takes us through hundreds upon hundreds of pages. Theo is the protagonist and he’s not really likeable. I can appreciate that Theo’s “goodness” dies the moment his mother dies, but I really do wish he had some redeeming factor.

5.0 von 5 Sternen My absolute literary highlight in 2013 4. Dezember 2013
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Certainly this year has seen a lot of memorable publications but Donna Tartt's new book is my absolute highlight. A novel of Tolstoyan dimensions it describes the life of Theodore Decker, a teenager who survives a bombing of the MOMA in New York and retrieves a priceless painting from the destroyed gallery he happens to be in at the moment of the attack. Injured and traumatized he succeeds to smuggle the painting out of the building, returns home and starts to wait for his mother, who was with him at the museum. It turns out that his mother is among the casualties, which means that his life is about to change totally. Orphaned he is taken up into the family of a school friend till his estranged father shows up and takes him from New York to Las Vegas. Over time the painting becomes Theodore's - as the New York Times wrote - prize, guilt and burden. We will follow Decker, who at the time of the accident is only 13 years old through early adulthood into his twenties, when he is working in the antique business. The novel starts in Amsterdam and Theo retells his life with a remark early on, that everything would have turned out different, if his mother had lived.
I had seen the Dutch translation of Goldfinch in Amsterdam at the beginning of October and was surprised by its sheer volume of well over a 1000 pages. Naturally, also the English version is long but the nearly 800 pages stand for a perfect reading experience. In the end you will have spent quite a few hours with Theo Decker and the characters surrounding him. You will know his life inside out. So much that you could be tempted to believe, he really exists and can be contacted in New York. (The painting actually is real and somehow currently on exhibition in New York).
Anyway a very good story and worth waiting for all the years that Donna Tartt needed to compose this literary cosmos of Theo Decker's world.

Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Donna Tartt has done it again! I was transfixed by this amazing novel. A multi-levelled story that - despite its 770 pages - remained rivetting and exciting to the very last page. An absolute must-read!
