The Eternal MomenteBook - 2016
It is a good read that flows well and makes you dream. I believe that Demetrio's goal is to take the readers to when they were teenagers, their first friendships, their first loves. And then persuade them to dream with open eyes. The eternal moment is an intense story about love and friendship. The protagonists are three children: Giuseppe, Jessica and Sidney. Each of them, in its own way, is special, unusual, but it is because of this diversity that they will be marginalized by their peers. They, however, will find in their friendship a unique and indissoluble bond. The novel is structured in two temporal and geographical levels: odd chapters, in the history, tell the story of the three main characters, starting from their childhood in 1992, and following them up to their twenties. The setting is Mosorrofa a small town of Reggio Calabria perched on a hill. In the even chapters, on the other hand, we are in 2013 and we find the characters already in their thirties, intent to face the complications of love. The setting is New York. For those who like happy endings I recommend stopping at the final chapter. For all others, I advise to continue reading until the epilogue.
