*The Goldfinch*, by Donna Tartt

Many people are calling this book the novel of the year (reviews here).  It’s pretty good and it held my attention — I read 780 pp. and was never tempted to quit.  It is an ideal plane read, but I don’t expect it will stick with me.  I put it in the “worth reading if you’ve read most of the other books you want to read” category, but that is not a space you should wish to inhabit.
