A phenomenally written character study of four college friends, following them throughout their lives. The story centers around Jude, a lawyer with a mysterious past that is slowly unraveled. Jude’s story is heartbreaking and tragic to the highest degree-it is a harrowing and deeply upsetting read. The redemption of A Little Life, however, comes from the stunning portrayal of genuine camaraderie and the importance of meaningful connections in our lives. The brutality of Jude’s story only further exaggerates the value of companionship and love, and highlights the high moments in each characters’ lives. Read with caution because this book will wreck you. ~ Reviewed by Madison Gallup
