"The Goldfinch" centers around a thirteen-year-old boy, Theo Decker, who loses his mother in a terrorist bombing in New York City. What follows is an epic coming-of-age tale that combines the world of art, post-traumatic stress disorder and mystery all into one. The New York Times' Michiko Kakutani wrote of the now Pulitzer Prize-winning novel in 2013 that although the novel's plot lines seem improbable when summarized, they are masterfully woven together: 

This sequence of events may sound highly improbable, but Ms. Tartt is adept at harnessing all the conventions of the Dickensian novel — including startling coincidences and sudden swerves of fortune — to lend Theo’s story a stark, folk-tale dimension as well as a visceral appreciation of the randomness of life and fate’s sometimes cruel sense of humor.

"The Art of Racing in the Rain" features the intelligent, funny and philosophical narrator: Enzo, who also happens to be a dog. Seeing life through Enzo's eyes provides readers with a new understanding for the human condition, creating a heartbreaking tale highlighting parenting, illness, loss and more. As one reviewer writes on Goodreads

That beginning - whew - nearly shorted out my kindle with the tears. 
#TeamGoldfinch

This book is a powerhouse, and the movie should follow suit. Whether you've read the book or not, "The Goldfinch" should translate into artful, sweeping on-screen tale. 

#TeamRacingInTheRain

This book will tear out your heart and stomp on it, and given that the movie is by the same people who adapted "Marley and Me," we expect the film-version to be no different. Just look at Enzo. You were already in love with his sweet, puppy eyes on the page; his movie-debut will only make him more irresistible.
