Beautifully tragic. Prose is poetic. A sad love story between a pair of ‘prime numbers’, Alice and Mattia. It’s one of those unforgettable novels with characters that will linger in mind for days and that will have you curl up in bed eschewing all human contact once completed. I lost count the number of times I read this just because I wanted to revisit the abyss of shattered souls & destructive hearts CUE UGLY SOBS. I assure you, this is worth the read.
