Il primo romanzo di questa autrice (Corri) mi era piaciuto molto.
Questo è tutta un altra cosa. Una vera delusione.

Bello, non si prende la quinta stella solo perché ci sono un po' troppi personaggi per un'azione che si svolge in 24 ore.
Però prende ed è molto profondo. Parla dei rapporti famigliari, ma lo fa senza retorica.


Riletto per la terza volta sempre con lo stesso piacere.
