A Little Life
Started by: kathpressey (4017)  Report abuse
Has anyone read this book by Hanya Yanagihara? [I got it cheap in Tesco]. It's one of the best books I've read. It's about a group of friends but mainly it covers the story of Jude.It's about friendship, loyalty and love but it makes quite harrowing reading but very compulsive. I'm nearing the end now.. still hoping for a happy ending. Highly recommended!

Hello Kath ,
I have almost finished the book you sent me and will be returning it soon, i just wish to say thank you for it has thrown up quite a lot about the Hall that i would might not have found ,the most intriguing part of the book was the phraseology of the words how they were written and interpreted it took my wife and i a few hours to get used to the the spelling of the words that they said and spoke back then in the 1600s.

Momac..I don't think I've ever been affected by a book as much as I have with A Little Life.I find myself thinking about Jude as if he's a real person.when he's first introduced they are flat hunting but need one with a lift because Jude has bag legs. Little by little you learn more and it will make you cry.
