The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
Fiction doesn’t get much better than this. An incredible novel of epic proportions, Tartt creates very real characters, each with their own fears and weaknesses. Trauma and PTSD are central to the novel, and seeing how two of the main character manage their symptoms fascinated me. A great reminder not to numb myself and pretend I’m ok, while also being a superb story.
