Book Club: The Goldfinch (discussion)

Spoilers ahead...

Happy Tuesday everyone! Breaking from our normal posting schedule, we will be discussing The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt today. So here's how it works...

I will leave a series of discussion questions below and answer them in the comment section. I'll be checking throughout the day and will respond to your comments and share my own thoughts and opinions about the book. 

1.  How did you like it? 

2. What did you think of Andy's family? They take on an important role in Theo's life after the death of his mother, and then obviously his engagement Kitsey. 

3. The relationship between Theo and Hobbie is one that I personally loved. What do you think of Hobbie as an individual? What did you think of their relationship?

4. We are clearly meant to dislike Theo's father. Were you able to find any redeeming qualities about him?

5. Do you think Theo shares any qualities with his father?

6. What are your thoughts on Pippa and Theo's relationship?

7. What do you think will happen to Theo?

If you have suggestions for the July and August selection, leave it in the comments below. We will be announcing the next book on Friday. 

Till next time,
