Anna has always been a risk-taker and a free spirit, but now she is raising a young daughter on her own and she has to play it safe. Her twenty-something neighbor with the slow, easy smile is in no way part of Anna's plans. She resists temptation in every way she can, yet Anna is soon drawn into a reckless and obsessive affair.

Provocative, headlong, and utterly compelling, THE BOY is the story of a woman on the edge, torn between love and compulsion, desire and duty. Lara Santoro writes in "hypnotic and swiftly paced" prose (Daniel Woodrell) about the hazards of passion and motherhood and about one woman's unthinkable rebellion.

25.06.14: Das Buch hat mir gut gefallen, auch wenn es kein leichtes oder gar schönes Buch war. Vielleicht, weil es einfach so "echt" ist und die menschliche Verwirrung ganz ungeschminkt zeigt. Das Ende hat mich ein wenig betrübt zurückgelassen, ist aber nachvollziehbar und mir lieber als "kein Ende". Mag das nicht, wenn immer alles offen gelassen wird...

Gelesen für die 1 Jahr= 1 Land Challenge für ITALIEN.

Ach ja, ich muss sagen, liebe wildboarhunter, du bringst immer sehr interessante und ausgfallene Bücher zum meetup mit :-) Da fällt es mir doch sehr schwer, meine selbstauferlegte Lesepause durchzuhalten. Das Buch ist jetzt schon mal als Urlaubslektüre für den September geplant!
