Lila è scomparsa. Esagerata, come sempre, ha cancellato ogni traccia. Ed Elena, l'amica di tutta la vita, inizia a raccontare la storia del legame viscerale che le ha unite per sei decenni. Tra inconfessata rivalità e profondo affidamento, la ragazzina geniale e ribelle e l'amica studiosa attraversano gli anni dell'adolescenza, sullo sfondo di un rione della Napoli anni Cinquanta ritratta nella sua cruda epicità. Prima parte della tetralogia "L'amica geniale".

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

ok but frustrating that it goes back to the beginning every time and even more annoying is that horrid loud music - if I wanted a music CD I would buy one - I just want to listen quietly - the music at the beginning all the time adds nothing and its too loud- it just makes me so annoyed I mark the review write down

What made the experience of listening to Italian Short Stories for Beginners the most enjoyable?

i cant stand the way they repeat the whole spiel in English every time you turn it on. I've heard it dozens of times - I understand who is selling it and how they are approaching it - I just want to flick the thing on every now and then and hear Italian - by the time they finish the explanation I have got bored and gone off and done something elsethe stories are great though

"18 juillet. Hier à midi, sur la plage de Tipaza, un employé de bureau dénommé Meursault, demeurant rue Bab-Azoun à Alger, a tué de cinq balles de revolver un Arabe non encore identifié. Les motifs du crime restent inconnus. Arrêté, Meursault a été transféré à la prison d'Alger." Jugé, reconnu coupable de meurtre avec préméditation, condamné à mort et exécuté, on ne saura jamais pourquoi Meursault a tué. Il assiste à son procès comme si c'était un autre qu'on jugeait. Une profonde réflexion sur l'être et la vie.

What would have made L'Étranger better?

it starts with something unintelligible , then weird music for a while and then it appears to start randomly, so first time it started halfway through and since it goes back to the start which is pretty annoying, normally when you log back in the next day it carries on where you eft of

What did you like most about Pimsleur Norwegian Level 1 Lessons 21-25?

very good - I wrote a lot more the first time but it disappeared . The fact that I bought one, found it great and bought two more should speak for itself. right way of learning for me. Actually in the foreign language rather than the tons of English you find in many courses

What was one of the most memorable moments of Pimsleur Norwegian Level 1 Lessons 21-25?

very good

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

its ridiculous that they try to make the reviews match a book when they are reviews for a language course. The course is brilliant the review procedure irritating and irrelevant for languages

Any additional comments?

the course is brilliant

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I used Duolingo which was great for written, but I couldn't get into the habit of speaking and this fills the gap. Even multi-tasking a bit, I still find myself listening to it and taking more in than I expected. I definitely plan to buy the next lessons when I finish these. The story rating is completely irrelevant, but it would not let me continue without the rating which is the only thing I have found annoying so far
