    Description

    NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST

    SHORT-LISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE

    Brace yourself for the most astonishing, challenging, upsetting, and profoundly moving book in many a season. An epic about love and friendship in the twenty-first century that goes into some of the darkest places fiction has ever traveled and yet somehow improbably breaks through into the light. Truly an amazement—and a great gift for its audiences.

    When four classmates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way, they're broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition. There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their center of gravity. Over the decades, their relationships deepen and darken, tinged by addiction, success, and pride. Yet their greatest challenge, each comes to realize, is Jude himself, by midlife a terrifyingly talented litigator yet an increasingly broken man, his mind and body scarred by an unspeakable childhood, and haunted by what he fears is a degree of trauma that he’ll not only be unable to overcome—but that will define his life forever.

    In rich and resplendent prose, Yanagihara has fashioned a tragic and transcendent hymn to brotherly love, a masterful depiction of heartbreak, and a dark examination of the tyranny of memory and the limits of human endurance.

    An Emotional and Thoughtful Experience

    Devastating. Beautifully written. Talented narrator. Worth the emotional torment and occasional tears this beautiful book caused. I started reading the physical book, but towards the end moved to the audiobook. Very pleased with that experience, as the narrator tells the story with grace.

    Gutwrenchingly beautiful

    This book will punch you in the face and when you are down on the ground and can’t take anymore, it will stomp on you, right in the heart. It is such a tough story but so worth the time it takes to listen or read it. My soul is hurting but I am thankful for this book for being so beautifully written and so emotionally provoking.

    Wonderfully written and narrated

    It had a slow start for me, but it was solid character building. Really great book, and talented narrator

    Beautiful, Painful, and Lasting

    This book was impossible to stop listening to, despite the incredibly challenging subject matter. The characters felt so real that throughout the book I found myself vacillating between loving, hating, envying and pitying them. I find myself unable to describe exactly why I so thoroughly embraced this book, except for the fact that its story seems to echo the reality of life so purely. Is there really a deeper meaning to it all, or do we just exist for existence’s sake?

    A big life really

    This is an amazing story of the lives of 4 college friends and their friends. At times I was smiling and hopeful and other times in tears. A long story, but a great one. In Depth discussion of sexual abuse, life of LGBT community, friendship, drug abuse, illness, parenting, suicide and so much more . I am a richer person, having listened to this book.

    Heartbreaking

    I’d give the story 5 stars but it’s the most depressing book I’ve ever experienced. Written so gorgeously too. Can’t say if I’d recommend but this one will stay with me for a while and now I want a physical copy to read in a year or two or five. The narrator is absolutely amazing and kept me enthralled the entire listen.

    I have never given 15 stars before!

    A recent article in the Atlantic talked about books that can make you smarter. This book will make you a better person. I loved it. I miss it now that it’s over.

    Beautiful, and emotionally heavy

    This book is misery porn; heartbreaking for all involved.
    I fell in love with the story and characters.
    Trigger Warnings: Sexual Assaults, Child Abuse of every kind, drug use, suicide, homosexual relationships, straight relationships, self harm, cutting, and abduction. The author approaches all with a delicate, visceral, realism.

    Light synopsis:
    Jude, an attorney, has deep, festering emotional scars from physical, emotional, sexual abuse from a child through teen age years.
    He’s a humpty-dumpty one crack away from shattering. He has friends whom he hides his pain from, and never brings up his tragic past. The story spans 40 something years.

    This is an extremely sad story. You will not feel good afterwards…but I loved it still. This is misery porn at it’s finest.

    Absolutely Amazing

    From beginning to end, this novel was filled with so much emotion that I found myself crying more than I’d like to admit. I’m so glad I decided to listen to this amazing piece of literature!
