NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A stunning “portrait of the enduring grace of friendship” (NPR) about the families we are born into, and those that we make for ourselves. A masterful depiction of love in the twenty-first century.


A Little Life follows four college classmates—broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition—as they move to New York in search of fame and fortune. While their relationships, which are tinged by addiction, success, and pride, deepen over the decades, the men are held together by their devotion to the brilliant, enigmatic Jude, a man scarred by an unspeakable childhood trauma. A hymn to brotherly bonds and a masterful depiction of love in the twenty-first century, Hanya Yanagihara’s stunning novel is about the families we are born into, and those that we make for ourselves.

This book broke my heart into a million pieces. Most heart breaking story I have ever read. There were parts where I couldn’t believe what was happening. I had to take a break from this book to feel normal again. Will forever think of Jude

I was intimidated by the length, concerned that I wouldn’t like the book and I cannot not finish a book. I am so glad I chose to listen to this beautiful but tragic story. So beautifully written. The characters flaws quietly unfold through out and so incredibly describe emotion and the human condition.

This is a very literary and intelligent book. I can see why it received all the accolades that it did. On the other hand, I listen to audio books that are lighter in tone and subject matter, and reserve this type of book for real reading. I found it too heavy and sad to listen to most of the time. The narrator was perfect for the tragedy of everything but again, I personally found him too heavy and monotone.

I was reading the paper copy and the listening to the audiobook, I needed the audio to get through a lot of the dry bits which in the beginning was a lot. This book has a moving story that is raw and emotional. Would recommend to people that want that deep emotional connection to a very sad story. The narration wad done very well and thank God because I needed it to get through!

Such a devastating and tragic, yet absolutely stunning story. The narrator does a tremendous job of capturing each characters unique tone and inflection, and emotes the pain and agony depicted in this harrowing story. I wish I could go back in time and hear this book again without knowing what was in store. I’ll never forget this book.
