Mr B's review

3 reasons why Elena Ferrante’s series is so good:

  1. It’s a remarkably honest portrayal of a complex female friendship, complete with all the intimacy and rivalry, fluidity and change that can entail.
  2. The incredibly atmospheric setting of a neighbourhood racked with poverty, crime and violence in post-war Naples, which becomes the entire intricate universe against which the sagas of the local families play out.
  3. It’s just a really good story. A rich, urgent, vividly-detailed and hyper-realistic narrative, it takes you on an epic journey into the lives and concerns of these characters.
