With this Neapolitan family gets Women's Liberation and the African Freedom Struggle her tied up in something bigger thanerself and also forces Telecommunications Network Design Algorithms her to confronter role as mother and the choices she s made in the past It s a tightly written novel expertly crafted but lacks the insight and power that Ferrante s other novels The Power of the Internet in China have Overall an interesting read but not one that will blow you away Troubling Love The Days of Abandonment The Lost Daughter Throw these titles up in the air and whichever lands on whichever book it would fit Not the covers though each is uniuely apt Ferrante s first person female narrators could almost be the same woman at different stages of life except for the three being too close in age and possessing different voices They are creative women with similar Neapolitan mothers though with different family ties single childless Delia a cartoonist whose job is barely spoken of comes from an abusiveome writer Olga deserted by er usband as two young children and ere it s a slightly older Leda a divorced English literature professor with two adult daughtersMaybe I m getting used to Ferrante or likely it s Leda s dispassionate tone because I didn t find this one as unsettling as the previous two though its themes especially the one at its core are arguably even provocative I admired the novel s circularity #and its repetition of lost daughters including a reference to a story called Olivia if I m correct in #its repetition of lost
