L’amica geniale - quantity primo

Care lettrici, cari lettori, provate a leggere questo libro e vorrete che non finisca mai.
Elena Ferrante, con il suo nuovo romanzo, torna a sorprenderci, a spiazzarci, regalandoci una narrazione-fiume cui ci si affida come quando si fa un viaggio con un story piacevole agio, con un story intenso coinvolgimento, che los angeles meta più è lontana e meglio è. L’autrice abbandona l. a. piccola, densa storia privata e si dedica a un vasto progetto di scrittura che racconta un’amicizia femminile, quella tra Lila Cerullo ed Elena Greco, dall’infanzia a Napoli negli anni Cinquanta del secolo scorso fino a oggi.

L’amica geniale comincia seguendo le due protagoniste bambine, e poi adolescenti, tra le quinte di un rione miserabile della periferia napoletana, tra una folla di personaggi minori accompagnati lungo il loro percorso con attenta assiduità.
L’autrice scava intanto nella natura complessa dell’amicizia tra due bambine, tra due ragazzine, tra due donne, seguendo passo passo l. a. loro crescita individuale, il modo di influenzarsi reciprocamente, i buoni e i cattivi sentimenti che nutrono nei decenni un rapporto vero, robusto. Narra poi gli effetti dei cambiamenti che investono il rione, Napoli, l’Italia, in più di un cinquantennio, trasformando le amiche e il loro legame.
E tutto ciò precipita nella pagina con l’andamento delle grandi narrazioni popolari, dense e insieme veloci, profonde e lievi, rovesciando di continuo situazioni, svelando fondi segreti dei personaggi, sommando evento a evento senza tregua, ma con l. a. profondità e l. a. potenza di voce a cui l’autrice ci ha abituati...
Non vogliamo dirvi altro in keeping with non guastare il piacere della lettura.
Dicevamo che L’amica geniale appartiene a quel genere di libro che si vorrebbe non finisse mai. E infatti non finisce. O, in line with dire meglio, porta compiutamente a termine in questo primo romanzo los angeles narrazione dell’infanzia e dell’adolescenza di Lila e di Elena, ma ci lascia sulla soglia di nuovi grandi mutamenti che stanno according to sconvolgere le loro vite e il loro intensissimo rapporto. los angeles storia si dipana nei volumi successivi, in keeping with raccontarci l. a. giovinezza, l. a. maturità, l. a. vecchiaia incipiente delle due amiche.

Godiamoci dunque anche questo altro tratto, che è costitutivo del vero lettore: il piacere assaporato e poi dilazionato, l’attesa del seguito, l. a. speranza, tra le tante amarezze di oggi, di un po’ di dolce nel prossimo futuro.

Buona lettura,
