A HUGE SURPRISE.
I CAN T BELIEVE NOBODY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED this book to me I literally picked it from the library KNEW NOTHING.
quickly did a run down of ratings on Goodreads I read a few 3 star reviews but nobody was raving about it.
Then I saw a 4 star review from Marialyce She didn t rave but said it was touching and sad and in a way compelling to read of these children who grew up so far removed from affection and love My gut kept pulling me toward this book I still was aware of other lower reviews.
even 1 star reviews.
but I started reading while spinning on the spinnaker bike Wow.
I was so drawn into the story I couldn t pull away It s only 288 pages but it packs in an array of ongoing intimate sensitive details It s a character driven novel with juicy intere Ð La solitudine dei numeri primi Ô Developmental AgonyI m not sure how this book has been marketed or how I encountered it, but it s definitely YA not adult fiction Lots of schmaltzy tragedy and teenage angst with a core of unlikely coincidence Very hard going if you re over age 21 I suspect Definitely a waste of time for an old stump such as myself The most significant effect of reading the thing is a feeling of vaguely regretful embarrassment for an afternoon I can t recover So unless you re into mean girls, oblivious parents, eating disorders and self harming, you ll want to give it a miss.
The idea is beautiful Compare people to numbers, compare the loneliness of people who don t know how to belong to the otherness of prime numbers, and thus imply that there could be resolution to their alienation because it s part of a logical pattern, and if they can t belong to everyone, at least they can belong to each other.
However, other than the fact that Mattia, one of the main characters, is a genius mathematician, and one passage where he introduces the concept of twin prime numbers, there s really no mention of this theme In addition, the characters are dull and silent at best, and selfish and unlikable at worst There is no progression The relationships and the characters all follow the same motions, repeated endlessly for the 20 years that are covered in the book.
If prime numbers interest you and that s how the title caught your attention, read Absolute disappointment.
One of the worst book I ve ever read.
The flatness of the characters is an insult to the reader.
La solitudine dei numeri primi The Solitude of Prime Numbers, Paolo Giordano The Solitude of Prime Numbers, is a novel by the Italian author Paolo Giordano, published in 2008 As a seven year old girl, Alice Della Rocca is forced by her father to take skiing lessons, although she hates the ski school and has no particular aptitude for the sport One morning, Alice is separated from the rest of the group and falls off a cliff, sustaining serious injuries Alice will remain crippled for the rest of her life Mattia Balossino is a gifted and intelligent child, unlike his twin sister Michela, who suffers from a severe form of mental retardation Isolated from the rest of his peers because of his uncomfortable sister, Mattia lives his childhood in solitude When he and his sister are invited to a classmate s birthday party, Mattia leaves Michela in a park so he can attend the party without her
I finished this book moments ago and find myself irritated instead of thoughtful I want to love this novel, it s unusual, bleak, as real and demanding as gum stuck to your shoe, but there is no payoff for my time spent with it Each painstakingly set up scenario of adolescent and adult angst trauma is left dangling like a series of complicated esher drawings that lead nowhere and are partially erased.
The author s style is raw and minimal He s able to occupy a girl woman s psyche as seamlessly as a man s and he shines when he s occupying interior spaces she had grown attached to it with the obstinacy with which people become attached only to things that hurt them The lead characters battle with anorexia and cutting very current, almost hip post modern symptoms.
