Do it.

— Sam

I choose book three because I don't recall anyone else choosing it as their favorite (it's obviously not the best), and to lend credence to a colleague's theory that we all respond strongest to the book in the series that is closest to our age and life experience.

— Doug

I inhaled Ferrante's novellas very quickly, but I've been moving through her Neapolitan Novels slowly, often taking a long break in between each one, to savor the experience. This third installment was easily my favorite, I found myself enthralled by Elena's insights into the writing life, that feeling when you've written something great and fear that you won't be able to do it again. Ferrante excels at intelligently merging the personal and the political, something she pulls off beautifully in this novel.
