Expected BEGIN_ARRAY but was BEGIN_OBJECT at line 1 column 2

You state in the comments that the returned JSON is this:

  "dstOffset" : 3600, 
  "rawOffset" : 36000, 
  "status" : "OK", 
  "timeZoneId" : "Australia/Hobart", 
  "timeZoneName" : "Australian Eastern Daylight Time" 

You’re telling Gson that you have an array of Post objects:

List<Post> postsList = Arrays.asList(gson.fromJson(reader,

You don’t. The JSON represents exactly one Post object, and Gson is telling you that.

Change your code to be:

Post post = gson.fromJson(reader, Post.class);
