All of Sally Rooney‘s books to date have centred around a #ComplicatedRelationship. Have to be honest and Sumatra that Connell and Marianne really got on my nerves sometimes!!

The book was disturbing, because I couldn't feel for its characters, except for their school days. And it was really captivating, with Sally Rooney's perfect ability to describe different emotional states. The language is beautiful, and Normal People was the gread read for this rainy and gray winter. #Booked2020 #MillenialAuthor @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage

Cinfhen Nice review / even though I didn‘t love this book it has stayed with me ( which is a sign of a good book) because I generally forget half the books I read😉 She does have a way of creating “real” characters 3d

I dk know how I feel rn. By page 204, Marianne is a deeply disturbed and disturbing person. It is educational to be in her head even as her thoughts and actions nauseate and terrify me. I am reading, curled up into a ball of anxiety. I have to finish this asap bc I can‘t walk around living normal life feeling like this. Praying hard for a happy ending.

Normal People follows the relationship between Connell and Marianne over a number of years, from high school to adulthood. That is all I can come up with as far as a summary goes, because nothing else really happens.
Despite the lack of plot in this novel, I still enjoyed it. I‘m not sure why. Its just very “readable.”
See my full review here: http://bit.ly/2tysqtF

MMFinck I‘m reading it now. Agreed - very readable. I wish I could stop the world and just read. I‘m not expecting a big plot. It feels like an epic love story in the making like One Day. If it‘s not, I will definitely need some other happy or redeeming ending! Don‘t tell me. Just saying. :) 🤞🙏🏻 5d

I finished this faster than I thought I would. I read a lot of negative reviews of NP on here which surprised me. IRL everyone I knew liked/loved it. I admit the main characters puzzled/infuriated/saddened me, I wanted to shake them, hug them, drag them away. Often. I couldn‘t really stop reading it. What a powerful amazing story.

“He tucked a strand of hair behind her ear.” OMG! Have a book-blogging friend who kept track of this when she encountered such an occurrence in books. It always makes me think of her.

BkClubCare @Riveted_Reader_Melissa - I believe she was appalled and curious about what it signifies, why it is often used in literature? 6d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BkClubCare Yes! That sounds like it should have been developed into a great paper! I‘m sure it‘s in literature meant to be a shortcut to “he cares”, but in reality “he feels entitled to touch her” or “fix her”. 🤷‍♀️ 6d

Whizzed through this, partly on audiobook in the gym, and partly the hardback. My manager at the library messaged me yesterday to check I was ok leading the reading group this month, and thinking the group was next week I heartily agreed. Then I realised the group is tonight! Whoops!
Marianne and Connell are frustratingly relatable as they navigate their world apart, and as they are magnetically pulled back together. I loved this book!

I didn‘t think I was going to like this one but i actually did!!‘ By mid book I was drawn into the angst of the MC‘s and wanted to find out what would happen to their relationship. I loved the audio narration by Aoife McMahon, I don‘t think I would have been as engaged otherwise! #booked2020 #MillenialAuthor

I‘ve read a lot of mixed reviews about this book, and for awhile I agreed with some of the negative ones. However, as I got closer to the end I found myself appreciating the characters and feeling like it was relatable if somewhat exaggerated in the things we leave unsaid and the assumptions we make especially with people we love.

I had such high hopes for this book after seeing all the rave reviews, but I was sorely disappointed. I detest the writing style that I occasionally come across where there are absolutely zero quotation marks, and it seems like one long ass paragraph after the other. Their relationship was so infuriating for the most part. I just could not connect with these characters. I‘m glad other people enjoyed it, it‘s just not for me. 1.5⭐️

First book finished in 2020, and it fulfills prompts for 2 challenges!

I liked the story and the characters well enough, but I didn't care for how much it skipped through the characters' lives. It felt to me like I was reading snippets of their lives and missing out on important details of the full story.

After seeing so many good things about this book I was certainly expecting something very different to what I got! I just didn't get this book at all. I found it dull, I didn't relate to or like the characters one bit. I don't always have to relate to or like a character but the problem was I just didn't care about them. The writing was ok but nothing special. Have I completely missed the point of this book or are there others who didn't care? 😂

I still don‘t know what to think of that book. On the one hand, I feel like Sally Rooney is able to look into young people‘s souls. She describes many feelings and issues so accurately that I felt understood by her. On the other hand, Marianne and Connell frustrated me. I couldn‘t see their “love” at all and felt like they never talked about the things that really mattered, e.g. their relationship or the abuse Marianne went through.

What a terribly depressing book. I kept reading thinking it might get better but it did not. Also I found the ending very unsatisfying. Not so much an ending as the author just decided to stop telling the story.

Deep breath. Phew. What a ride. With Rooney, the substance is the style; meaning it‘s not really about how she writes it, but about the actual events that are happening in the story. That‘s the driving force, and this plays out something like a soap opera. Angsty, heatedly psychological, addictive.

Oh, and it‘s also sexy. That too.

It‘s sort of a polarizing book. The characters don‘t communicate well and this bugs people. Not me though.

Love is complicated. It‘s messy and can be conflicted. At times you can find it and then lose it with just a thoughtless word or inappropriate reaction. I loved this book because if followed a boy and girl who found and lost love, but always had each other‘s best interests at heart.

I feel conflicted about this. On the one hand, there's some beautiful lines, on the other, nothing here hasn't been said and done before, in YA and bildungsroman books. Discovering oneself, the line between learning to stand alone and yet depending on others, explorations on love and loss, what's normal and what's not. I think I would've enjoyed this more if the "hollow self" was more explored, thus giving the characters a chance to be something.

She felt happy to be surrounded by people she liked, who liked her. She knew that if she wanted to speak, everyone would probably turn around and listen out of sincere interest, and that made her happy too, although she had nothing at all to say.

In this novel we meet Connell and Marianne. In high school Connell is the cool guy and Marianne is the outsider, despite this they are friends. As they move on to university the roles change. Connell and Marianne feels so real, so you feel like hugging them and yelling at them and telling them that thing will be okey.

Connell and Marianne have opposite problems. He is poor and she is rich but they have been very close friends from an early age. That is, until they both get accepted to attend Trinity College. As college students, their economic disparity causes greater challenges. Highly recommended!

This was a beautiful character study, I can see why Sally Rooney is getting a lot of attention right now. Although it took me a few chapters to become engaged with the story (it was a rough transition from Ocean Vuong‘s book!), before i knew it, Connell and Marianne had found there way into my heart and mind. It is an understated but brilliant take on young adulthood. It also reminded me very much of my university days!

I had this book sitting on my TBR shelf for a while due to mixed reviews. I finally decided to read it and now find that I am having mixed feeling about this book. I‘m not sure if I liked it 🤷‍♀️. It was a quick read and I kept finding myself drawn into the story of these two people and their ever evolving relationship. But the ending was so abrupt and left me feeling kind of empty.
