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..
Great story about friendship and love. I enjoyed the audio book with the Irish accents.
