“The Goldfinch” by Donna Tarrt – “So I am reading The Goldfinch and likely will be reading it all summer since it’s almost 800 pages and I am a slowwwwww reader. It amazing, today’s Great Expectations.”
This was my first Hemingway book. To be honest, I picked it up because it was the name of a Metallica song, and I was like "Hmm, that's very strange, I wonder why they named it after a book." Well this became a "gateway drug" into the works of Hemingway. No matter what people hate about him for some reason, he was also my gateway drug back into reading in general. I enjoy him, and should really finish the rest of his books. I don't have many to go.
