Giovanna’s pretty face is changing, turning ugly, at least that’s what her father thinks. Giovanna, she says, looks more like her aunt Vittoria every day. But can it be true? Is she really changing her? Ella Becomes Ella’s Aunt Vittoria, a woman she barely knows but her mother and her father clearly despise? Surely there is a mirror somewhere where she can see herself for who she really is.
Giovanna looks for her reflection in two similar cities that are feared and detested: the Naples of the heights, assuming a mask of sophistication, and the Naples of the depths, a place of excess and vulgarity. She wanders from city to city in search of the truth, but no city seems to offer answers or escape.
Named one of the most influential people of 2016 by TIME magazine and frequently touted as a future Nobel laureate, Elena Ferrante has become one of the most widely read and loved writers in the world. With this new novel about the passage from childhood to adolescence and adulthood, Ferrante proves once again that she deserves much praise from her. In The Liars of Adults, readers will discover another captivating, captivating, and utterly unforgettable Neapolitan story.

The voice can make or break a novel; It’s the gist of the story, IMHO. The latest from Neapolitan author Elena Ferrante has a full-bodied, assertive, witty, emotional and resonant voice that cuts through the narrative and resonates deliciously in my bones. The protagonist Giovanna (Gianni) is a beautiful 12-year-old girl, the daughter of educated parents. Her parents associate with wealthy and influential professors, academics, and political dissidents, and expected Gianni to follow in her footsteps.
Giovanni adores her father, but is also a critical observer. Things start to unravel at home when she overhears her sophisticated father comparing her to her Aunt Vittoria, her father’s black sheep, Andrea’s family, a free spirit and someone Andrea calls “ugly”. Hearing this, Gianni is stunned and immediately concludes that she must be ugly like Vittoria and demands of her to meet her. The Lying Life Of Adults is a gem of a coming-of-age story.
Vittoria appears to be a classic borderline personality disorder with evidence of untreated carefree bipolar disorder. His dirty mouth could disturb a sailor’s teeth or make your grandmother pass out. But she inspired me to empathize with her contradictory and unrealistic eternal love of hers (rather lust) of her for a friend who died twenty years ago and who seemed crude and minimally educated. He was a police officer and petty criminal with a wife and children to whom Vittoria has become a close family. Vittoria is open, frank and confident in her perception.
After a shocking discovery about his parents, Gianni starts dating his aunt in the seedy part of Naples and his aunt’s self-proclaimed religious family. Gianni was raised by atheist parents, like all her friends, who are mostly academics. Gianni also meets the working class relatives whom her father rejected.
Over the years that follow, Gianni learns some hard lessons and hears even harder secrets about his father and his mother. Deciding that her life is hers to do as she pleases, she becomes the rebellious daughter, shunning her tony friends and educated in sex, love and throat filling her. Giovanni’s voice is captivating, exuberant and authoritative.
Themes of identity, betrayal and everything that a Bildungsroman encloses in a tight ball of fire. Not a single dull moment. Charismatic, captivating and daring, it will surely be one of my favorites of the year. “Lies, lies, adults forbid them and yet they tell so many.”
I won’t repeat the plot here, it’s already been explained in some of the other reviews. My feeling reading this book is that it is extensively overlapping with themes and symbolism. I love sequels as I savor Ferrante’s precious words, so beautifully translated, and replay them over and over in my head to flesh out what was ‘said’ but not said. I can imagine why people would not like this novel if they are looking for a gripping story that unfolds beautifully and ties in well with many others at the end.
This is a chaotic labyrinth that reflects the chaotic and confused thoughts and feelings of the main character as he goes through the process of losing his innocence and the chaos of life in every possible way. The “lie” is examined in all its possible facets and how lying affects not only the life and mental health of others, but even the basic appearance. I personally love the prose that the enigmatic Ferrante is famous for and how he describes and then illustrates what Giovanna says, thinks and feels.
I’ve read many reviews, including those in the Times, Atlantic, NPR, and The Guardian. They all focus on different aspects of this novel, and any book that provides so much food for thought fascinates me. It will upset you, it will turn you upside down and then in a strange and satisfying way it will give you a resolution when you understand that this character is taking charge of his own life and not accepting the definition or the definition of another person. limitations.
