Normal People



A wondrous and wise coming of age love story from the celebrated author of Conversations with FriendsAt school Connell and Marianne pretend not to know each other He s popular and well adjusted, star of the school football team, while she is lonely, proud and intensely private But when Connell comes to pick his mother up from her job at Marianne s house, a strange and indelible connection grows between the two teenagers one they are determined to conceal.A year later, they re both studying at Trinity College in Dublin Marianne has found her feet in a new social world while Connell hangs at the sidelines, shy and uncertain Throughout their years at university, Marianne and Connell circle one another, straying toward other people and possibilities but always magnetically, irresistibly drawn back together And as she veers into self destruction and he begins to search for meaning elsewhere, each must confront how far they are willing to go to save the other.Sally Rooney brings her brilliant psychological acuity and perfectly spare prose to a story that explores the subtleties of class, the electricity of first love, and the complex entanglements of family and friendship.

This is going to be a polarizing book I mean, I think I liked it And I say liked it in the sense that it made me very miserable It is a quiet character study, almost a YA no...

    Sally Rooney is the real deal Normal People has been lavished with praise from critics, longlisted for the Man Booker prize and is apparently being adapted for television by the BBC And it only came out last week All that attention will no doubt attract quite a few readers who would not ordinarily touch this subject matter with a barge pole Because this book A Is about young peopleB Is a love story but not a romance C Contains a fair bit of sex which is crucial to the story, btw, and is Sally Rooney is the real deal Normal People has been lavished with praise from critics, longlisted for the Man Booker prize and is apparently being adapted for television by the BBC And it only came out last week All that attention will no doubt attract quite a few readers who would not ordinarily touch this subject matter with a barge pole Because this book A Is about young peopleB Is a love story but not a romance C Contains a fair bit of sex which is crucial to the story, btw, and is not graphic All of which possibly also the fact that the author is a 27 year old woman mean that Normal People will inevitably be dismissed by some as frivolous It isn t This is a confident, accomplished and serious work Of Rooney s debut, Conversations with Friends, I said in my review it occasionally scrapes close to the bone Well, Normal People cuts to the core Normal People is not out to inspire, instruct, entertain or talk down to anyone, which makes it something of a refresh...

    I am not sure how to write this review because I seem to be so far beyond the pale on my antipathy to this book In simplest terms I didn t connect with this work at all and I would be best to chalk this up to a reader writer mismatch and move on but I will try and articulate some of my reading experience.Some of my perplexity with Normal People is that I just couldn t relate to the twenty something, highly educated, politically aware and cynical young adults that populate this novel I am not I am not sure how to write this review because I seem to be so far beyond the pale on my antipathy to this book In simplest terms I didn t connect with this work at all and I would be best to chalk this up to a reader writer mismatch and move on but I will try and articulate some of my reading experience.Some of my perplexity with Normal People is that I just couldn t relate to the twenty something, highly educated, politically aware and cynical young adults that populate this novel I am not sure how reflective these voices are of young Irish making their way in the world, but as presented here I found them exasperating to listen to and not particularly nuanced It is possible that even if I didn t enjoy the novel I might like the writing but in actual fact Rooney s style is perhaps the single biggest thing that bugged me I found...

    3.5 stars.Sally Rooney s upcoming novel Normal People almost felt like a puzzle, in that you didn t really know what you were truly getting until all of the pieces came together Beautifully written although a little slow in its pacing, it s a novel full of deep emotions, which made it difficult to read at times.Connell and Marianne know each other from high school, although they pretend not to, pl...

    I have to admit I wasn t taken with Rooney s debut Conversations with Friends but I tried to read her second book with an open mind The writing was good and some of the themes were interesting but I was rather bored by the selfabsorbed, clich characters women who just want to get the man and who always question their self worth after a break up, and men who are behaving as if they come straight out of a boys will be boys movie So 1950ies And the ending is just plain cheesy 2.5 mainly I have to admit I wasn t taken with Rooney s debut Conversations with Friends but I tried to read her second book with an open mind The writing was good and some of the themes were interesting but I was rather bored by the selfabsorbed, clich characters women who just want to get the man and who always question their self worth after a break up, and men who are behaving as if they come straight out of a boys will be boys movie So 1950ies And the ending is just plain cheesy 2.5 mainly because the w...
