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".

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?

Brilliant story and interpretation.

I was able to recognise places and remember experiences of my childhood. The writer has been very realistic in describing relationships, contrasts, traditions and mentality of the area and the time. Every time I had to interrupt the listening, I couldn't wait to get back to it to find out the story would end. I look forward to reading/listening to the others.

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.
