really liked it

A twin prime is a prime number that differs from another prime number by two.
Mattia's number is 2760889966649. Alice's 2760889966651. They are always so close but never close enough.

I really enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down. In fact, I read it in one day. Giordano wrote a beautiful, melancholy tale about tragedy and loneliness. My only issue with the book is toward the end a twist was introduced and then was completely discarded shortly after. Why was it even in there, except for a reason to get the characters together again? There are many other ways Giordano could have made that happen. Other than that it was a great book. I was very impressed by the translation, too. It was perfect. I didn't find a single mistake in it.
