The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt Won the Fiction Pulitzer

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt just won the Fiction Pulitzer. Should I give it another go? I tried to read it but couldn't get into it. I'm not against giving books a second try though. Have any of you read it? I read her book The Secret History in high school and really enjoyed it, but yeah, The Goldfinch didn't do anything for me. But again, maybe I should give it another chance?

Which books did you not like the first time around, but gave a second chance to and then enjoyed immensely? The Hobbit and A Confederacy of Dunces are both books I put down at first, and then loved when I gave them a second chance.
