Publisher's Summary

Lila è scomparsa. Esagerata, come sempre, ha cancellato ogni traccia. Ed Elena, l'amica di tutta la vita, inizia a raccontare la storia del legame viscerale che le ha unite per sei decenni. Tra inconfessata rivalità e profondo affidamento, la ragazzina geniale e ribelle e l'amica studiosa attraversano gli anni dell'adolescenza, sullo sfondo di un rione della Napoli anni Cinquanta ritratta nella sua cruda epicità.

Prima parte della tetralogia "L'amica geniale".

Mi ha convinto. Appassionante.

La bravissima Anna Bonaiuto ci prende per mano e conduce nel mondo vischioso e un po' magico del rione. Personaggi vivi e sgargianti, ricreati dal ricordo della protagonista che rivede la sua infanzia ed adolescenza con gli occhi del presente. Ben scritto e benissimo raccontato.

Wonderful

Would you listen to L'amica geniale again? Why?

I would read/ listen to anything by Elena Ferrante again. Had read this in English, loved it and wanted to read it in the original Italian (and improve my Italian at the same time). Anna Boniauto's performance is excellent too.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Have no deisre to see this as a film

Any additional comments?

Message to Audible/ Amazon: please can we have more (some?) non English language books available in dual version, at a reasonable price so that language learners like myself can listen and check the written version if necessary?

annoying

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

ok but frustrating that it goes back to the beginning every time and even more annoying is that horrid loud music - if I wanted a music CD I would buy one - I just want to listen quietly - the music at the beginning all the time adds nothing and its too loud- it just makes me so annoyed I mark the review write down
