mostly hadn t been suprised by the course of events and still kept reading I can t say it was innovative or imaginative yet Ferrante managed toraw me in her world entirely Maybe I m mistaken but as I mentioned in the review of MBF I still haven t spotted in the second volume anything to not maintain that Ferrante is excorcising her past Her writing here feels too intimate too personal to think about this one only as a fictional story Perhaps her case is similar to other writers including Edward St Aubyn and his Patrick Melrose or My struggle by Karl Ove Knausg rd that I m reading now and

continues the story of two childhood friends now young adults Lila and Elena Just as riveting as My Brilliant Friend The Story of a New Name captured my attention from page one It s uite ramatic really and I found that at times my head was spinning from the epth of the penetrating look at the lives behaviors motivations and innermost thoughts of this pair Now a book that sets my head spinning can be a good thing and it was here An accomplished writer like Ferrante can Readers Guide to African Literature draw you in like you are watching therama play out right in front of you It Distributed Operating Systems Algorithms did reuire however a step back from time to time to relax and catch my breath A bit of re energizing is necessary to take it all in Imagine yourself a teenager still with

revealing any spoilers but I personally idn t want any Do Better details before reading and you may feel the same I just want to talk about Lila and Elena a little bit Throughout the novel I found myself reflecting on the two and who was better off who the stronger of the two characters etc I think the opening uote to my review really sums up the relationship between the two and I came to my own conclusion whether right or wrong that each completes the other Elena may have had educational opportunities but without the encouragement of Lila as well as a sense of competition she may not have had therive to take advantage of those opportunities Lila finds herself in a marriage that Toward a critical realist reading of African and African diaspora literatures. does not suit her from

goal of going to school and an education They wanted to become rich But happiness is elusive Perhaps riches are not enough Is it too late to re make oneself and achieve something I think Lila can sustain herself knowing that Elena has been successful with her studies Maybe there are ways to rise above the poverty and the violence of the neighborhood other than money The narrative is written from Elena s point of view but we also get occasional glimpses from Lila s point of view through a series of notebooks she entrusted to Elena Notebooks that Elena was not given permission to read but that is neither here nor there If your best friend gave you her A WEALTH OF ACADEMIC IELTS ESSAYS diary for safekeeping what would youo Maybe your friend gave you the Dangerously in Love diary because

much about this book or this SERIES IT S ONE THAT I COULD CONTEMPLATE FOR it s one that I could contemplate for indefinite amount of time So much happens in these pages but none of it is confusing There are a lot of names and variations of names for the same person A guide at the front of the book helps with this Otherwise it flows seamlessly and is written skillfully There is Accuracy and Stability of Numerical Algorithms drama but Ion t mean to say it s melodramatic Not in the least I will admit that it is addicting Oh and that ending I will read the next in the series albeit with a bit of a break in between Loved it just as much the 2nd time reading it I adore these characters and would read 100 books about them 45 stars Update Bumping this one up to a 5 stars because after a few months of thinking about it it s 10 Mindsets That Can Cause Drug and Alcohol Addiction and Mess up Sobriety definitely my favorite in the series I keep finding myself thinking of certain scenes and elements of this installment and I love it I m not sure if I can write a coherent review of this book right now There are so many layers to this story so much to unpack and yet still as this is book 2 of 4 so much left toiscover I am incredibly impressed by Ferrante s ability to Alchemy Ever After develop characters that are real real than almost any other characters I have read before They have ambition are flawed fight and love and inspireThere is high probability I will come back and give this book a 5 star rating later but for now I want to finish the series and accumulate my thoughts Oh and this book has one of the best pages of literature I ve ever read so there s that I can t wait to read books 3 4 For your whole life you love people and you never really know who they

the continuity is superb The clarity is extraordinary it never relents I found myself slowing Pathfinder Player Companion: Alchemy Manual down to take in the richness as I would when reading a poem That s the paradox Ferrante incites in readers between wanting to gallop through the stunning tale to just gobble it up like cake and slowingown to take in the beauty of its structure and languageIt s

that thing it was not enough to learn Latin or Greek or philosophy nor was the money from groceries or shoes of any use p 84Suffice it to say Nino is available then Len suspects That s the problem I say no ReadThe long interlude on the beach at Ischia reminds me very much of Cesare Pavese s novellas particularly The Beach as found in The Selected Works One of Nino s sisters is even named Clelia

Multicultural Romance) *2: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Secret Baby Romance Contemporary Romance) despite its nearly 500 page lengthFor this review I wanted to focus on the title and the importance of names in Ferrante s work First off there is it seems to me a Proustian reference here to Le nomu pays Le nom which is the somewhat ambiguous subtitle of one of the early sections of La Recherche BWWM (An African American Romance) (BWWM Paranormal Scifi Romance) du Temps Perdu There are some similarities between Proust s style ofescribing Marcel s youth to how Ms Ferrante African Literature: Overview and Bibliography describes Elena s youth There is also a second subtle Proustian techniue we learn in this book that the narrator writes her first book and publishes it under her name Elena and we know the author s name is given as Elena so as the same ambiguity exists between Marcel and Elena the narrators Marcel and Elena the characters and Marcel and Elena the authors of the book Underneath this in the narrative itself names play a huge role in the story The and I apologize for the overwrought term ambiguity once again ambiguous frontier between ElenaLinaLenucchia and LilaLen is apparent in their names and their nicknames As an aside is it me oroes the Italian language have an incredible plethora of nicknames Elena s search for identity is complex and goes through ups and Aliens Rogue Aliens downs a reason for this is precisely how hard it is for her toistinguish herself from Lila in her own head complex because their trajectories their looks their families are both so incredibly Eşti cool şi dacă vorbeşti corect different and yet Elena has this magnetic inevitable attraction to her friend and this impedes her search for selfWe pick up the lives of Lila and Elena in the 60s after Lila s mariage to Stefano anduring Elena s studies in high school and at university in Pisa The themes that were present in My Brilliant Friend resonate here once again especially those of the subjugation of women and the problems of class Elena s sexual initiation and the battering of Lila by Stefano serve as examples of the former whereas both characters struggles to escape the Neopolitan slums permeate both of their stories What fascinates me as a reader is the raw realistic Fall for You descriptions of Elena s success in gaining some recognition in good society and her complex feelings of shame and pride that envelope her As for Lila her attempts to escape herisastrous mariage lead her to mistreat Elena time and time again and Money Blues to Blue Money despite her heart stopping beauty and sensuality she seems inescapably tied to the neighborhood the Camorra as represented by the Solari brothers and herialect which binds her to her fate as well What also strikes me is the lucid interpretation of the characters actions When Nino kisses Elena on the cheek and then fatefully Lila In his view it meant Let s get rid of all the filters that prevent us from fully savoring our being here and now real p 223 This is actually another theme of the book how Facial Action Coding SystemInvestigator's Guide Part 16701 do we live authenticallyespite the constraints of our culture and our upbringing The Alchemy for Women dialogs are rapid fire and full of irony and meaning I regret that I cannot read in Italian because I imagine that the passages between Italian andialect and the intertextual inferences must be even better in the original The perception of our own self Alchemy Martial Supreme deception on aaily basis also pervades the text There are moments when we resort to senseless formulations and advance absurd claims to hide straightforward feelings p 271 is a lucid truth that is observed by the narrator again and again Time and time again Elena is led Nicholas Flamels First Codex down corridors of moral ambivalence I was there on the island the air stirred by the cab s movement assailed me with the intense odors of the vegetation from which the night was evaporating But it was a mortified presence submissive to theemands of others p 284 In this way both Naples and Ischia are also characters in the story in how they form the personality of the protagonists The real problem for Elena is her own lack of self identity self love Their passion invaded me Alien disturbed me I loved them both and so I couldn t love myself feel myself affirm myself with a need for life of my own one that had the same blind mute force as theirs So it seemed to me p 284 There is a gorgeous passage on page 289 of soul searching on the beach where we feel her pain her alienation from herself that was literally painful to read Lila is right the beauty of things is a trick the sky is the throne of fear Powerful words Water and the sea are a consistent metaphor for the narrator s self loathing And if on the surface my condition might seem solid compact here instead beside Lila I felt sodden earth too soaked with water p 294 Yet it is at this point after the fateful night away from Nunzio that Elena starts to change once again and find herself This passage was brilliant And her life continuously appears in mine in the words that I ve uttered in which there s often an echo of hers in a particular gesture that is an adaptation of a gesture of hers in my less which is such because of her in my which is the yielding to the force of her less Not to mention what she never said but let me guess what Iidn t know and read later in her notebooks Thus the story of the facts has to reckon with filters eferments partial truths half lies from it comes an arduous measurement of time passed that is based completely on the unreliable measuring evice of words p 337 And yet those words are where Elena will find vindication and meaning as she is finally able to put them on paper and write her first book This comes of course after tribulation in Pisa where Elena feels the social African American Literature in Transition,
