Supposed to be a goodie!  I’ve barely started.  I waited for The Luminaries to settle in before tackling another doorstop.  I had to get both the Audible version and the Kindle version of that to keep track of stuff.  I wonder if that will be necessary with The Goldfinch,  right now (on short chapter 3),  it’s  too soon to tell.

And as it turned out I enjoyed it very much – huge allusions of Dickens and Dostoevsky,  good story well told of an innocent corrupted.  No huge themes, that I was aware of but fun although a bit too long.
