Here is the dazzling saga of two women: the brilliant, bookish Elena and the fiery, uncontainable Lila. Both are now adults; many of life's great discoveries have been made, its vagaries and losses have been suffered. Through it all, the women's friendship has remained the gravitational center of their lives. Both women once fought to escape the neighborhood in which they grew up - a prison of conformity, violence, and inviolable taboos. Elena married, moved to Florence, started a family, and published several well-received novels. In this final book, she has returned to Naples.
Lila, on the other hand, never succeeded in freeing herself from the city of her birth. She has become a successful entrepreneur, but her success draws her into closer proximity to the nepotism, chauvinism, and criminal violence that infect her neighborhood. Nearness to the world she has always rejected only brings her role as its unacknowledged leader into relief. For Lila is unstoppable, unmanageable, and unforgettable.
Against the backdrop of a Naples that is as seductive as it is perilous, the story of a lifelong friendship is told with unmatched honesty and brilliance. The four volumes in this series constitute a long, remarkable story that listeners will return to again and again, and every return will bring with it new revelations.

Great Respect to the Author!

Absoluetly adorable as all the three previous books. How can one author make up such a real-seeming story if it is not experienced all by oneself, I‘m wondering. I love Elena Ferrante, who ever it may be. The characters and the educating story imprinted my life forever.
I admit only to feel this sadness after the ending wich I would have dreamed of a happy one. Yet I know best, that life is a task of regarding it souber. Dispite the grief and the longings... Great respect to the author! And Thank you _/\_ !

Getting boring...

Die dritte Folge-Geschichte wird langweilig, zu langatmig. Was soll in den nächsten Bänden noch geschehen?
