Boken är nog väldigt amerikansk med mycket "love" utöver alla rimliga gränser. Tror heller aldrig jag har set så många "I'm sorry", de utgjorde halva boktexten. Dessutom antas det att alla män er mer eller mindre homosexuella och att man måste vara i evig försvarsställning. En fullständig otrolig berättelse om hur man kan arbeta på högsta nivå16 timmar i dygnet 6 dagar i veckan utan att äta eller sova och ändå hinna umgås med ett hav av vänner och bekanta!!! Huvudpersonen engagerar men hans t... Läs hela recensionen

Helt underbar bok! För mig är det årets läsupplevelse. Den är helt enkelt ett måste för alla som älskar Donna Tartt och James Frey. Rekommenderas varmt.

A remarkable tale of love, friendship and the difficulties of embracing life when everything conspires against your right to happiness. * Sunday Herald * A book that demands to be read. -- James Daunt * Wall Street Journal * Deeply moving . . . A Little Life interrogates notions of value and happiness as espoused by the 21st century American dream . . . Extraordinarily rich. * The National * Transporting . . . A Little Life is not to be missed. -- Alex Clark * Evening Standard * A Little Life asks serious questions about humanism and euthanasia and psychiatry and any number of the partis pris of modern western life. It's Entourage directed by Bergman; it's the great 90s novel a quarter of a century too late; it's a devastating read that will leave your heart, like the Grinch's, a few sizes larger. -- Alex Preston * Observer * Emerging from horror, persistent and enduring, is a touching, eternal, unconventional love story. -- Maria Crawford * Financial Times * Utterly enthralling . . . The phrase "tour de force" could have been invented for this audacious novel * Kirkus (Starred Review) * A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, will be one of those books people ask you if you've read yet. Beat 'em to the punch * South Coast Today * Set to become one of the year's most talked-about novels . . . The narrative is transporting. -- Alex Clarke * ES Magazine * Hanya Yanagihara's A Little Life is the thinking person's big book of the year so far, a long, complex and pretty dark look at the intertwined lives of four college friends. It reminds me of The Corrections, or a starker The Interestings, or a more linear work by David Foster Wallace. Really. It's that huge and important * Amazon.com * The first must-read novel of the year . . . The way to describe a novel you like, maybe the quickest way, is to say that you can't put it down. People say that all the time. There are also novels that compel trickier, but no less passionate, emotions. They are books that confront you and make you wrestle with them. You might feel protective of the characters and their fates; maybe you feel like the writer is talking directly to, or about, you and you are delighted but spooked about what the writer might reveal. There is no shorthand phrase for a novel that seduces you even as it frightens, guts, exhausts, and disgusts you. A Little Life is the most devastating but satisfying novel published so far this year . . . Finishing its 720 pages is like finishing one of the doorstop novels of 19th-century Russia: you feel worn out but wide awake -- (Cover Story) * Kirkus * The reader is pulled along by its express-train pace . . . it's certainly a great book. -- John Harding * Daily Mail * At its heart A Little Life is a fairy tale that pits good against evil, love against viciousness, hope against hopelessness. The cruelty of the life Ms Yanagihara describes is trumped only by the tenacity with which she searches for an answer. * The Economist * Once she has you, Yanagihara is not going to let you go . . . Yanagihara . . . contains multitudes. She seems able to imagine anything . . . A Little Life . . . is, in its own dark way, a miracle * Newsday * This new book is long, page-turny, deeply moving, sometimes excessive, but always packed with the weight of a genuine experience. As I was reading, I literally dreamed about it every night . . . The book's driven obsessiveness is inseparable from the emotional force that will leave countless readers weeping . . . A wrenching portrait of the enduring grace of friendship. With her sensitivity to everything from the emotional nuance to the play of light inside a subway car, Yanagihara is superb at capturing the radiant moments of beauty, warmth and kindness that help redeem the bad stuff. In A Little Life, it's life's evanescent blessings that maybe, but only maybe, can save you * National Public Radio * The clarity of Yanagihara's prose is perfect for dissecting blind ambition, the consolations of work and
