Very intrigued by this one, Donna Tartt seems to divide people. It's been sitting on my 'to read' list for some years now.

I read this one several years ago (this is Victoria’s review) I preferred Secret History over the Goldfinch, which I reviewed a few weeks ago.

Yup, that's what I hear as well. Secret History > The Goldfinch. Can't wait until its turn comes in my reading queue!

I read Bataille's Story of the Eye many years ago, but nothing else of his. I can see why you'd make the comparison, but this book isn't really erotic in that way, and what I described comes more in the way of mundane cruelty, curiousity or despair, all told through the eye of a child. Despite how it sounds, its really remarkably understated for its subject matter.

You tend to focus on the kid's grief and need to understand death and what is happening to her family. It's a really skilfully written book.

This looks beautiful! I really enjoyed both the Scorsese film and the charming little Melies film that it is based on. However, I can't ever seem to watch the latter without also thinking of the music video for Tonight, Tonight by The Smashing Pumpkins or the old Victorian Papers Catalogue. Thank you for sharing! ♥

Oh! And this piece of art by someone dear to me: https://bit.ly/3j7XGnW

All three Selznick books are incredible pieces of art with fascinating topics from the past woven into their contemporary stories. I loved the movie, too, although I reviewed The Marvels for this website. Victoria reviewed Hugo Cabret. Both are great, as is Wonderstruck. I read that one before I started this site, so it's been passed over unless someone else does it.

I just watched the music video. I don't listen to much music and I hadn't seen this before. The look is obviously inspired by George Melies. O course the name on the ship atthe end is a dead giveaway. Thanks for sharing. Loved your friends art too!
