    One thought on “Me and You”

    1. WOW, this small book is absolutely amazing! It has more to say in it's sparse pages than many a novel I've read. What a rare and special find! It's the story of a 14 year old boy named Lorenzo who doesn't fit in. He's the boy in the second row from the back, trying to be invisible, to blend with the walls. Early on he says "Why did I have to go to school, you work and you die. Who had decided this was the right way? Couldn't we live differently?Why didn't they just leave me alone? Why did I have [...]

    2. A dark but delicious tale—short in length but deep in drama. I couldn’t put it down! It reminds me that great things often come in small packages. I’m so glad a friend recommended Ammaniti, a young Italian author who holds awards in Europe. I can’t believe he hasn’t caught on in America in a bigger way. He makes other writers look long-winded, and his writing seems effortless. He knows how to tell a big story in a small space. Speaking of small spaces, most of this story takes place in [...]

    3. برای چه باید به مدرسه می رفتم؟ برای چه دنیا این طوری است؟ به دنیا می آیی، به مدرسه می روی، کار می کنی و بعد می میری. چه کسی گفته این روش درستی است؟ نمی شد طور دیگری زندگی کرد؟ مثل انسانهای اولیه؟ #من_و_تو داستان نوجوانی به نام لورنزو است که در برقراری ارتباط و دوستی با دیگران دچار [...]

    4. "Obrigada por me teres ajudado. Sinto-me feliz por ter descoberto um irmão escondido numa cave."Lorenzo é um jovem introvertido, nada social, que um dia, sem saber bem porquê, resolve mentir à mãe e diz que alguns colegas o convidaram para uma semana numa estância de ski. A mãe fica felicíssima, o filho finalmente tem amigos. Lorenzo sente-se mal com o entusiasmo da mãe e resolve passar essa semana escondido na cave do seu prédio. Em poucas páginas, Ammaniti inclui vários temas relev [...]

    5. Short, dark and a little weird. This is a story about a dysfunctional boy who hides in his own parents house whilst pretending he's off skiing with the family of a school 'friend'; it kept me interested to the very end I really didn't know how this was going to be resolved. Great read.

    6. می خواستم بخوابم،فقط بیست و‌چند صفحه‌مونده بود،میدونستم نمیتونم،این داستان عجیبی بود،داستان خواهر و برادری که مجبورند چند روز در کنار هم‌در زیرزمین پنهان بشنداستانی‌با‌شخصیت پردازی قوی،پایان بندی محکم ،شخصیت درمانده خواهر که تا‌خرخره غرق مواده،برادر که نوجوانی اسیب [...]

    7. Visto che esce il nuovo film del Bertolucci, preso da questo libricino, mi sono degnata di leggere seriamente Ammaniti per la prima volta.Niente di malvagio. Niente di grandioso né orribile. Né propriamente "bello". Un libro con una sua decenza, che di questi tempi nel marketing italiano è già tanto.Ammaniti cerca di ritornare, o perlomeno, fare il classico quattordicenne disadattato che cerca di inserirsi in un ambiente che non lo rispecchia. Troppe associazioni per tanti lettori, situazion [...]

    8. The story is set mainly in Rome in the year 2000, and though I’d love to read about the beauty of Rome, most of the scenery mentioned is that of the forgotten cellar that Lorenzo retreats to for one week. The cellar is dank and musty and yet to Lorenzo, nothing could be better. This is where the reader finds out much of Lorenzo’s life. He is an outcast in school and when he hears of the popular kids going skiing for a week he desperately wants to go as well (he tricks his mother into thinkin [...]

    9. Libricino dal peso apparentemente leggero, poche pagine, caratteri grandi, grandi spazi, ma che ti fa affondare giù come un sasso in un lago dentro il buio e la luce di una cantina, sempre più in fondo, non solo mentre lo leggi ma anche dopo averlo letto, così come i cerchi di onde dopo che il sasso ha colpito l'acqua.Descrizione di un'adolescenza romanzata, che risveglia in noi domande mai sopite. Una storia toccante sulle promesse non mantenute. A volte le storie sono corte, ma non per ques [...]

    10. With a review of "Niccolo Ammaniti disgusts me for how talented he is he has written a masterpiece," and "has distinguished himself as the most talented of his peers," I expected something better. The story itself was ok - a teen with anger issues and maybe some mental illness lies to his parents and hides in the basement of his building for a week. At one point, his half-sister shows up. You can feel some of his dissociative behavior, so I suppose that part is well written, and the story idea [...]

    11. A minha opinião em vídeo: youtube/watch?v=tML03Um livro pequeno mas com uma mensagem muito grande. Gostei imenso!

    12. E' un libro uscito per far cassa? Probabilmente sì.E' un romanzo troppo breve? Può darsi.Costa troppo per essere un racconto? Beh, se sei Briatore no, però 10€ per un libricino del genere sono forse esagerati.Meno male che posso strafottermene. E' un sollievo.Eh sì, perchè il libro l'ho preso in biblioteca (quindi io i soldi all'Einaudi non glieli ho dati), perchè avevo giusto quelle due ore da riempire in serata (e che palle con 'sti libri lunghi, se uno legge solo 100 pagine non casca [...]

    13. Lorenzo è un adolescente ossessionato dalla normalità. Normale lo vorrebbero i suoi genitori, preoccupati che non abbia amici. Normale si vorrebbe lui, per farli felici. Ma essere come tutti gli altri, fare quello che fanno gli altri lo fa sentire fuori posto, un pesce fuor d'acqua costretto a mimetizzarsi per sopravvivere. Una bugia è l'inizio di tutto: Lorenzo finge di essere stato invitato in settimana bianca da una bellissima compagna di classe, convince i genitori, se ne auto-convince. A [...]

    14. Questo libricino si legge molto velocemente soprattutto per il suo esiguo numero di pagine :).A me è piaciuto molto, è una storia tenera, un po' inverosimile ma comunque mi ha emozionato. E poi Ammaniti a me piace tanto e lo leggo sempre con piacere. Inoltre il fatto che sia riuscito a far evolvere il protagonista in così poche pagine credo sia da valutare positivamente in quanto non la ritengo una cosa così banale. Certo, il prezzo è un po' elevato e forse se lo si riesce a prendere in bib [...]

    15. یک رمان کوتاه از نویسنده ی معاصر ایتالیایی که به شرح حوادث زمان کوتاهی که خواهر و برادر ناتنی با هم می گذرانند می پردازد.در کنار موضوع داستانی پر کشش کتاب، مسائلی مانند تنهایی انسان معاصر و نداشتن روابط عاطفی غنی در این اثر به خوبی نشان داده شده است.

    16. This is a small but beautifully formed novel. Right up my alley with the flawed hero, a boy with anger issues who is probably on the spectrum and who is not at all good with people and his troubled rather more grown up sister. Lorenzo decided to show his mother that he is fitting in at school and pretends that he has been invited on a ski trip with some of the kids from school. He packs himself up and acts out going away with the group but then heads back to spend a week in the cellar of their h [...]

    17. Questa e' una storia dolcissima e delicata, ma allo stesso tempo un po' amara. Per un pomeriggio vabbe' penso

    18. شاهکاری موجز و صد–صفحه‌ای؛ توصیفی دقیق و تکان‌دهنده‌ای از این‌که جمعِ دو «تنهایی» چه صورتی دارد

    19. Beetje kort om er echt volledig in op te gaan. Ik hou wel van de stijl dus ik ben wel van plan om die bestseller van Ammaniti ook te lezen.

    20. I hated endings. In endings things always have to be, for better or worse, fixed up.After I saw a film, it drove me crazy the way Dad and Mum always talked about the ending, like the whole story was in the ending and nothing else mattered.And so, in real life, is the ending the only important part? Grandma Laura's life was worth nothing and only her death in that ugly clinic mattered? In his book Me and You (original Italian title Io e te) Ammaniti explores the maturing of 14 year old Lorenzo fr [...]

    21. É o primeiro livro que leio do autor, mas vou querer ler mais.Um livro que fala sobre relações familiares, problemas sociais, drogas e promessas. Não estava à espera que fosse tão bom.

    22. I enjoyed Me and You by Italian author, Niccolò Ammaniti. I didn't realize it was a young adult book until I started reading it. I enjoy young adult books (some). My only issue with them (which isn't actually an issue but a reason I don't read them as much as I used to) is that the focus tends to be very narrow and the story very straightforward and I tend to like complicated and twisty.But I found this book to be very readable. I was interested in Lorenzo, an adolescent boy who has no friends [...]

    23. WOW – this book would not let me put it down.The story starts out telling of a teen-age boy who just wants to be himself and have people accept him for who he is. This is not as easy as it sounds, because Lorenzo is different. He prefers to spend time by himself and doesn’t like to talk very much, especially with people he doesn’t know.His parents would like him to be a ‘popular’ kid and are very conscious of the appearance of things. Lorenzo know this and because he loves his mother, [...]

    24. I feel guilty for rating too many books as "5's" but I've come to the conclusion that in my rating system, a book can get a 5 if I loved it so much that I wouldn't change one thing about it.This book was so short that it felt/read like a short story. However, it was so easy to connect to the protagonist that it felt like I'd been reading about him for much longer. Much credit should be given to the author in that respect - its a clear display of talent in my opinion.The story followed a 14 year [...]

    25. Two characters spend a week hiding in a basement of an Italian home for different reasons. One is an autistic high school boy who has told his parents he is going on a ski vacation. But he simply want to drop out of the stress of trying to “act normal” so he can read and play video games. The autistic boy is well-portrayed. He’s bright and can act the part when he has to, but he just gets sick of trying to fit in amidst what he considers the silliness of the rest of the world. The other pe [...]

    26. « La mosca era riuscita a fregare tutti, perfettamente integrata nella società delle vespe. »Apparentemente è un romanzo scorrevole, leggero, bello e tutto ciò che può conseguire da un libricino che ti ritrovi improvvisamente sotto il naso.L'ho regalato a mia madre per Natale e curiosa ho iniziato a sfogliarlo in giro per casa, ripromettendomi di leggerlo.Bang! E' stato questo il rumore sordo del mio cuore quando ho finito di leggerlo. Poche parole, semplici, ma essenziali. Io e te. E già [...]

    27. Wow, another wicked story. The story is amazing about a boy and his family, relationship, lies, society and just life. I am not sure whether it is still world of fiction or might be some eco of reality. the second option probably will be more comforting. Sadly, any story has a finale, doesn't matter how we wish to see it. To be honest, I had twenty pages to finish that book yesterday. And I left them to read today it was agonizing to imagine the end of story, what could happen, what is happened, [...]
