Friendship. I knew that I would have to start reading Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels from the beginning, so I procrastinated. I kept hearing about how good these novels are, so I finally got underway, and finished the first three over the course of a few weeks. I highly recommend this third installment titled, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, as well as the other three novels that complete the series about the friendship between two fascinating female characters. In this installment, set in the 1970s, the friends are no longer girls and adolescents, and as women they are taking different paths in life.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
