Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
My Brilliant Friend written by Elena Ferrante and translated by Ann Goldstein is the first in a quartet, documenting a friendship between Elena and Lila. Told from Elena's perspective, this book is a child's view of childhood and her community with an undercurrent of sadness running through it. Having read this book alone, the story is incomplete. I enjoy it, but it does not elicit an emotional connection to keep me reading through the remainder of the series.
