  1. I don t know why people love this book so much it is possibly one of the most boring books I ve ever read I really, really tried, and got to 56% before I gave up The language is pedestrian, the characters are not captivating at all, and it was difficult keeping everyone straight because they all seem to have at least two names The trailer for the new tv show looks great, though, so I ll be checking that out to see if I can get into the story that way.


  2. Much has been written about the Neapolitan novels, so I would just like to add that I have been completely absorbed by the books I am now reading the third , in which Elena Ferrante relentlessly explores all aspects of the friendship between Linu and Lila and sets it against the background of Napoli in the restless sixties demonstrating that we are shaped by those surrounding us as well as by the surroundings themselves I am an avid reader and usually do not go for bestsellers, so these books to [...]


  3. I was enthusiastic to read this book, knowing how popular it has become I was eager to finish it once I started it, mostly to be done with it It left me feeling drained, like listening to a friend that drones on and on about the minutiae of their life You want to be interested, but it s just so damn tedious and depressing I won t be reading the rest of the series.


  4. Wow I knew she was shortlisted for the Man Booker prize but I wasn t expecting to love this as much as I did l couldn t put it down The story is simple we are shown the childhood and adolescence of two friends but it is richly narrated The characters feel real, their portrayal intimate The book is beautifully written but also a page turner and easy read The author s storytelling is vivid and textured in bringing to life their small, poor neighborhood in Naples in the 1950s I somehow feel like I [...]


  5. I really wanted to love this book but it s anti climactic and lacking a really substantive plot I read the book in two days and now I m left wondering what exactly it was about beyond the life of two poor Neapolitan girls I wanted the end to have something groundbreaking some deep philosophy or mind blowing conclusion, but I was sadly disappointed The voice of the author is good, but the story line lacks Maybe I didn t get it as intended Either way, it was fairly boring.


  6. If you like really, really good writing, and complex character evolution, and vivid cultural snapshots of a time and place, I announce with trembling pleasure the appearance of an epic story someone said that years ago of Watership Down and it s just as true here, even though the two books have nothing else in common Absolutely brilliant psychological portrayal of female friendship, the depth and detail reminding me of the best of Iris Murdoch, but Murdoch never captured the formative intensity [...]


  7. My friends RAVED about this series, but I am baffled about why I hated everything about this book, and I can t imagine voluntarily reading the other three The plot is virtually nonexistent The characters are unimaginative and flat It reads quickly, but in a way that left me feeling wholly unsatisfied So many words, yet they are strung together in a way that is so unbearably empty and forgettable It reads poorly as literature yet somehow also manages not to even be enjoyable as guilty pleasure re [...]


  8. My Brilliant Friend was a surprise to me in many, many ways At first I thought it was slow and plodding but soon discovered it was actually quite addictive At first I thought it was dull without much action but soon found it had unexpected twists and turns While I d say the action, the pace and the characters definitely build rather than hit one over the head, the book also grows on the reader bit by bit, day by day, page by page As in most of the best books I ve ever read, I found myself thinki [...]


  9. I bought this book for my wife a couple of years ago, and picked it up to read on a recent trip to Italy My initial impressions weren t encouraging it s a story about two girls growing up in poverty stricken, violent Naples in the 1950s, and the book opens with a cast of characters which, although essential for navigating the story, look bewildering for example, the two girls each have two nicknames, and two other characters have been given the same name But I found I was gripped by the tale as [...]


  10. At the beginning of the book there is a really off putting cast list of nine families, and of altogether no fewer than forty seven names I constantly had to refer to that list, although the book focusses on two of these people the narrator Elena also known as Leni and her friend Rafaelli also known as Lina or Lila , both born in 1944, through their childhood and adolescence There are two parts to this volume Childhood and Adolescence.The two have been friends since their childhood in a dense wor [...]
