I spent ages hesitating about how to rate this book It s an amazing novella beautifully written beautifully crafted The story is very simple and straightforward but it reaches the reader amidst a web of complex feelings For a short novel the twists and turns are also very surprising at least for me but perhaps I have way too much faith in human nature I gave it four stars although really this is a five star novella in all its glory My four stars are only a testament to how much I wanted I wasn t ready to say goodbye to the characters I wanted of Hans and Konradin I wanted of their lives their thoughts their actions I wanted Konradin s perspective In short this is too short But if you have to read something this year in all years please read this It is a tale of friendship beauty art and all things that matter in life And it s also the story of how fragile these things are how easily destroyableUPDATE 20102019 After all these months I realised that I think about this book constantly So I decided to just give it the five stars it fully deserves
