  1. You know when someone talks to you about a sad book, and you immediately think, well, someone precious is going to die at the end A Little Life has been called tragic, depressing, a masterpiece that you cannot get through without a wad of tissues nearby, and so naturally, I assumed someone would die at the end I went into this book prepared to not get too attached to the characters, but it s inevitable to not connect with people who are the subjects of an 800 page book with minimal spacing and t [...]


  2. I liked this book for many of the reasons already espoused Particularly because of the field I work I appreciated the illustration of the hidden life and thoughts of a traumatized character I work with abused and traumatized children and adults If you work in the field or closely with those around chronic sexual abuse you may decide to skip this read as it may feel too overwhelmingly like work And it will For me, it increased my motivation to work with this population Particularly as this work h [...]


  3. UGH I just finished A Little Life finally and I thought it was AWFUL I cannot understand the praise given to this bloated, droning, depressing piece of work The narrative is unrealistic, the characters are completely one dimensional, and the same self indulgent torture porn gets retold over and over and over again It s repetitive, cliche, and unoriginal and the same awful story could have been told in 500 pages instead of 800.I ve heard people say the story sucks, but it s so well written I abso [...]


  4. I am shocked confused by the good reviews for this novel from other readers but also the New Yorker and New York Times It is so painful to read And misleads the reader into believing it is this ensemble piece about a group of college friends navigating life in New York their various fields but then becomes just hundreds of pages of torture and child abuse and graphic horrible details about one character It is uncomfortable and also feels under researched and like a very long retelling of a sick [...]


  5. Not sure why I am bothering to offer my take on this book, when the way now organise reviews conspires to hide low stars, but here goes Little Life is an overwrought tale, heavy on sexual sadism, concerning the gilded lives of priveleged, beautiful people The narrative rocks between the good heartedness of its characters in the present and revelations of torture against its main protagonist in the past Skip every chapter concerning Jude, and a much better, and slimmer, novel emerges.


  6. Every year I look at the Booker Prize shortlist and buy a couple of books from it, and frequently I read the winning book as well A Little Life was on the shortlist in 2015 and has been sitting on my shelf for two years, until my break in August when I decided to actually read it, and it was well worth the wait This is one of those books that will surely go down as a modern classic, it is so brilliant The plot follows four friends who meet at college through life s up and downs and personal trag [...]
