Aged 13, Theo Decker, son of a devoted mother and a reckless, largely absent father, survives an accident that otherwise tears his life apart. Alone and rudderless in New York, he is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. He is tormented by an unbearable longing for his mother, and down the years clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, strangely captivating painting that ultimately draws him into the criminal underworld.
Would you consider the audio edition of The Goldfinch to be better than the print version?
Excellent thought provoking story, slow start but worth it. Good twists to the plot and lots of feelings and emotions explored
Who was your favorite character and why?
Have you listened to any of David Pittu’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
haha, way too long!
Filled with startling twists, Whiteout is the ultimate knife-edge drama from Ken Follett - an international best-selling author who is in a class of his own. As a blizzard whips down from the north on Christmas Eve, several people converge on a remote family house. Stanley Oxenford, director of a pharmaceutical research company, has everything riding on a drug he is developing to fight a lethal virus.
Thoroughly enjoyed this story from start to finish. Ken is a terrific author. Well done.
