Fantastic book, read for book club. About to download book 2 can't wait to see the progression!!
Only negative was the amount of characters you have to keep up with, who they are related to where they fit etc. Audiobooks definitely arepte challenging in this way. Otherwise fantastic!

Would you consider the audio edition of My Brilliant Friend: The Neapolitan Novels, Book 1 to be better than the print version?
I haven't read the print version so can't comment.
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the engaging narrative in the story. Ferrante writes in a way that is easy to listen to .... conversational and engaging. The story line is more than the friendship between the two girls. It views mafia activities in Naples from a child's perspective, and shows how difficult it was to transcend the social environment in which the girls are born. Although a work of fiction, it felt like I was listening to an autobiography.
Have you listened to any of Hillary Huber’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I haven't listened to any of Hillary Huber's other performances, but I thought she was excellent in this book.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The book (and the whole series) was so engaging that I sought every opportunity to listen to it. I was totally captivated, and often found myself reflecting on social issues.
Any additional comments?
This was my book of 2015!!!
