My Brilliant Friend - Ann Goldstein, Elena Ferrante
The first of Elena Ferrante's popular Neopolitan Quartet. Set in a poor district of Naples amidst families, feuds, first loves and strict moral codes, i t is the story of the developing friendship of two girls, told through the eyes of one of them, the "Brilliant Friend". But it is the other girl who fascinates the reader and who dominates the pages. It is her originality, courage and clarity of mind, that shines through their lives and with a different, more beguiling brilliance than the dull, academic brilliance of her friend.

I can see why this book gained such a big following but the question is, do I read the othet three?
