This is a mini-thesis on "The Goldfinch," packed with very readable/understandable information on themes, symbols and character motivation. It's not only great for book clubs, but also for anyone who might want to delve a little deeper into "The Goldfinch." Find out about the literary influences on the book, bird imagery used throughout, location and mood and the role weather played, as well as a full (and detailed) plot summary and questions for book clubs.

Good information as background for discussion. I found the summary, information about characters, and themes especially helpful.

I was astonished at how much better I understood The Goldfinch after I read through this guide. I almost wished I had read it before I read the book.
