About the book

image3.9/5.0

Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in rural Ireland. The similarities end there; they are from very different worlds. When they both earn places at Trinity College in Dublin, a connection that has grown between them lasts long into the following years. This is an exquisite love story about how a person can change another person's life - a simple yet profound realisation that unfolds beautifully over the course of the novel. It tells us how difficult it is to talk about how we feel and it tells us - blazingly - about cycles of domination, legitimacy and privilege. Alternating menace with overwhelming tenderness, Sally Rooney's second novel breathes fiction with new life.

Normal People was a good read. I felt completely invested in the lives of the two protagonists, but unfortunately the ending fell a little flat.

Best book I’ve read in years. Couldn’t stop thinking about it after I finished. The economy of Rooney’s prose is incredible—and her characters charming, smart, relatable, infuriating, beloved. So so good.

Read after watching the series, confusing due to the lack of speech marks but after getting used to it, it’s a decent read.

God, gribende og hjerteskærende! Den er fængende, men man skal også være indstillet på at man nok ikke ligefrem bliver i godt humør af at læse den. Til gengæld blev jeg opslugt og den er god til at flygte fra ens egen virkelighed!

Had high expectations of Normal People and they were not really met. The first 100 pages was intriguing, but from there the story spins in the same circle. The audience for this book is teenagers and young adults.

Readable in one sitting, but the heartbreaking struggle and poor communication is so frustrating! Not a feel good love story, but it has staying power and is thought provoking

The writing style of this book is such that you can’t put it down, it grips you from the get go. Read it in one sitting and want to read it again

Et fængende totalportræt af ung bevidsthed i det 21. århundrede. En fortælling om kærlighed, venskab og navigering i et af livets mest (på daværende tidspunkt) udfordrende overgange.

Perfect book for someone looking for something to be immersed in on the tube! Sally rooney masters the art of reaching out and dragging you into the lives of her characters. A read for someone looking to reflect on the art of living and its difficulty at times..

The lack of quotation marks is annoying
