I could read this book unceasingly.
Something ruffled in me, ghosts of the past are awaken..
Excellent book.

Storia del nuovo cognome | Elena Ferrante

"Postala bih nervozna još dok je vlak ulazio na kolodvor."

I remember the same feeling I had when I came home from university.

Storia del nuovo cognome | Elena Ferrante


"Since childhood we have watched our fathers beat our mothers.
We grew up with the idea that the stranger should not touch us, but that our parent, boyfriend or husband can slap us whenever he wants, because of love, to raise us, to re-educate us."

What marriage makes to the young, immature women (wife) who are still nothing but girls?
Lila is so mean, still, but why?
What makes it so, why is she that like?

I read the book surprisingly fast. This book has drawn me into it's story.
I had a friend like Lila, but I quickly discovered who she really was and forever told her goodbye.

I started reading this stunning book. I like it very much. I can not drop it out of my hand. I have a feeling like I'm in the book, side by side, with Lila. I'm looking for her approval for everyone.
And she is such a mean girl.

I have to leave this book for a while. I can not read it anymore. It's too soft for me. I will continue on another occasion. I need a break. I need something more interesting.

So I start another, stunning book.

I'll return to this book on another occasion :)

Why in the book is always a cute and poor girl? The man is always handsome and rich but totally blown into the head. He's totally fucked :) :). Sorry about language. A light and sleek read. All in all, the story is fine.
Heading on book two ;)

I know there is the book, but I couldn't get it, so I watched series online. Season 1 and 2. Waiting for season 3. Great series. Can imagine the book is much better.

"Zatim feniks napuni gnijezdo svojim omiljenim stvarima - u prici su to mirna i cimet, mislim. Tada se gnijezdo zapali, spaljujuci staro tijelo ptice. A nova ptica uzdigne se iz pepela stare ptice. Moja je majka obozavala tu pricu. Rekla je da to znaci da smo neunistivi, da se uvijek mozemo mijenjati, ponovno roditi, i biti novi."
