    I have not read Tartt s two previous, and by most accounts, superior novels In The Goldfinch you can see that the talent is there but something is drastically off in the storytelling The book drags and drags It exasperates with unnecessary detail that calls annoyed attention to a critical lack of credibility throughout The narrator is like one of those panhandlers who stop you on the street and provides too long a story about some travail my mom and I were just mugged they took her to the h I have not read Tartt s two previous, and by most accounts, superior novels In The Goldfinch you can see that the talent is there but something is drastically off in the storytelling The book drags and drags It exasperates with unnecessary detail that calls annoyed attention to a critical lack of credibility throughout The narrator is like one of those panhandlers who stop you on the street and provides too long a story about some travail my mom and I were just mugged they took her to the hospital and I need to get to New Jersey to tell my dad who s deaf but first I have to get to the hospital which is...
