The Story of the Lost Child

Finale. People who have read the first three novels of Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Series are those most likely to read the finale titled, The Story of the Lost Child. Consistent with the earlier novels, the character development is strong, the situations are presented with insight, and the complexity of love and friendship remains on center stage. As the friends we have followed from childhood have matured, the issues they face are very significant and Ferrante presents those issues with great skill, and the characters mature in complexity as well as age in this final volume. Readers should not start the series with this novel, but will gain much from going to the beginning and getting all the rewards in this final installment.
