A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara.
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Lately, this book appear many times in many social media that I’m scrolling. As it sit silently on my shelf for ages, I proceed to read it now.
To be honest, it got a lot of elements that caught me off guard while reading this novel. As much as there a lots of conflict and sadness that envelope in this, the depth meaning in this novel make me learn and understand a lot about the value of friendship, relationship, and what is family even though it exist without blood ties. For me, this is a sad, heart-wrenching novel but there is a heart warming moments.
This is how I feel about A Little Life. I’m glad that I’m reading this and learn something that make me value people that close to me.
Quote that I love from A Little Life.
“You don’t understand what I mean now, but someday you will: the only trick of friendship, I think, it to find a people better than you are-not smarter, not cooler but kinder, and more generous, and more forgiving-and then appreciate them for what they can teach, and try to listen to them when they tell you something about yourself, no matter how bad- or good – it might be, and to trust them which is the hardest thing of all. But the best as well”
