Book Club: The Goldfinch

Tommy Engstrom

“Caring too much for objects can destroy you. Only—if you care for a thing enough, it takes on a life of its own, doesn’t it? And isn’t the whole point of things—beautiful things—that they connect you to some larger beauty?” 
Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

I am about to embark on a bold undertaking. Months ago, we are talking about beginning on summer months ago, my cousin and I decided that we wanted to have a little book club of our own. We would go out to the nearest Barnes & Noble, buy the same book, read it at the same time and then have FaceTime dates where we drank wine and talked about the book. 

The plan started without a hitch, I went out and bought my copy of The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. I purchased a bottle of Dreaming Tree Crush. And then I never started reading the book.

Life: 1 | Tommy: 0

I completely failed at the plan and never did the book club with my cousin. So here I am now, October 1, 2015, attempting to read The Goldfinch once again. Fingers crossed this attempt proves to be successful.

"I now understand every freshman in high school's experience with this book. The wonder of being in a new world but the many challenges and tribal instincts that sneak in. I fully understand why this is a classic."
