The Solitude of Prime Numbers by Paolo Giordano
Alice and Mattia are both "prime numbers" destine to be alone in their life. When they were just kids, something happen and it changed their life forever.
When they met each other in their teens, they knew that they are kindred spirit. It was so natural for them to tell each other the deep hidden secret of their soul which they never told anyone before.
As they grew older, their fate tied them together and yet it forced them apart.
It was very interesting to see how the story developed. Wondering if the two of them will ever get through the barrier and become a couple.
In this story, it's not the ending that counts, its the journey itself. I love the way the author unfolds each chapters of Alice and Mattia's life. The flash back were not too frequent that I would loose track of the story. It's a book well written
Then only downside is I don't really understand the symbolic meaning of the ending of this book.
