Already hooked.

And DH has left me all alone this weekend to go on a stag. Oh no. Poor me. Guess I'll just have to read all evening! gringringringrin

Lucky you. Haven't read it for years - think its due a reread!

I think I may have to re-read it too.
I can't really remember much about it - but I remember that I thought it was fantastic. smile

It's a great read. I really enjoyed it.

Haven't read this for years but would still say it was oneof my ffavourite books ever. I hope you enjoy it! I must dig it out and reread it.

I'm jealous! One of my favourite books of all time. Enjoy!

It's really excellent, one of my favourites. Enjoy! I bought The Goldfinch cheaply for my Kindle in December - not sure when I'll get the chance to read it as I had DC1 in January wink

I'm reading it for the first time too. I read The Goldfinch recently too grin

AttitudeOfGratitude Sun 25-May-14 01:32:55

Did you enjoy Goldfinch More? I see it's had very mixed reviews on here

I read The Goldfinch - I really enjoyed it, I would love to read again. The end is great and really unusual. I'd highly recommend it ( just to show I'm not a Donna Tartt fanatic, I didnt really like 'the little friend'

The Secret History is brilliant, but like daimbardiva I can't say I liked The Little Friend. Haven't tried The Goldfinch yet.

Ah loved this book. Read it in my final year of uni after exams under a tree next to a boy I adored.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 01-Jun-14 21:07:22

I gave up on it. I was so disappointed.

JesusInTheCabbageVan Sun 01-Jun-14 21:10:36

Oh, it's amazing. One of those books I wish I hadn't read, so I could read it... iykwim

I loved The Secret History, and THe Goldfinch, but agree with the others. Couldn't get on with her second book at all and gave up on it.

Jealous. One of those books I wish I hadn't read so I could do it all again. Mind you, it was 20 years ago(!) I read it so maybe it wouldn't resonate now. That thought actually makes me sad. I will re-read to ascertain.
