The Story of the Lost Child (by Elena Ferrante)

I finished the Neapolitan series!

I am a bit pressed for time so I will give my brief review: feels unresolved -- after so many novels, it comes to an end so abruptly and with many, many loose threads -- but that un-resolution is in a way beautiful and in keeping with the theme of "dissolving boundaries" that is set up in book one. I lovedhow everything but the central friendship is, in the end, an afterthought. And indeed, that friendship is complex, somewhat poisonous (on both sides) but also sustaining.

Mostly I want a book five.
