About the book

image3.9/5.0

At school Connell and Marianne pretend not to know each other. He’s popular and well-adjusted, star of the school soccer team while she is lonely, proud, and intensely private. But when Connell comes to pick his mother up from her housekeeping 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 in college, Marianne and Connell circle one another, straying toward other people and possibilities but always magnetically, irresistibly drawn back together. Then, 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.

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.

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.
