The Human Soul

The Human Soul

One of the most beautiful books I have ever consumed is An Orchestra of Minorities. I bought the physical copy so that I could look at some of the words (by Nigerian author, Chigozie Obiama). I listen to it over and over again, because it's not that often that a work of fiction is a balm and a blessing, both contextually and poetically. I have a short list of books like these and I recommend them to anybody who can stand to talk to me over 5 minutes.

The Goldfinch

A Novel (Pulitzer Prize for Fiction)

By Donna Tartt
Narrated by: David Pittu
Length: 32 hours 24 minutes

The Goldfinch

“The Goldfinch was always one of those books I was intimidated to start. It's so long! And sprawling! Was I really going to commit to thirty hours of a book about a painting? The answer is: I waited much too long to get to this truly incredible story, and if you--like me--are daunted by this book's length and scope, the audiobook is for you. Read by veteran stage actor David Pittu (and award winning audiobook narrator), I was rapt from the opening scene to the very last. The story follows Theo Decker from the day he loses his mother in a terrorist attack inside New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art through the rest of his youth. Theo is bounced through households, adrift without his mother, from the Upper East Side apartment of a wealthy schoolmate to his father's Las Vegas subdivision, always accompanied by the small, precious painting he took from the museum on the fateful day his mother died. It's an incredible coming of age tale, read by Pittu with humor and perfect dramatic timing. Despite the many hours I spent with this audiobook, I was sad when it was over. It is just that good.”
