Reading is one of my great pleasures in life.  It takes me into different worlds I could never experience and helps me understand and emphasise with different people and cultures. Elena Ferrante describes an intense evocative description of the friendship between two women over a fascinating period of Italian history.  It is so vivid and real with such emotional clarity and punch.  When I start to read her books I cannot put them down easily.  They are truly classics of this century and will endure for centuries to come.
