Normal People



Normal People 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.

    No one can be independent of other people completely, so why not give up the attempt, she thought, go running in the other direction, depend on people for everything, allow them to depend on you, why not. 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 novel but not quite, and it is a profoundly lonely and depressing love story.I didn t begin by liking it Normal Peopl No one can be independent of other people completely, so why not give up the attempt, she thought, go running in the other direction, depend on people for everything, allow them to depend on you, why 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 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 some passages of interest sand...

    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, plus his mother works as a cleaner for her family Marianne is a bit of a laughing stock in sc...

    On the second page of Sally Rooney s universally acclaimed, Booker longlisted novel is the following paragraph He puts his hands in his pockets and suppresses an irritable sigh, but suppresses it with an audible intake of breath, so that it still sounds like a sigh What I get the hand in the pockets bit, but how the hell does the rest of it work A sigh is an exhalation and I have no idea how any attempt to suppress a sigh by inhaling could possibly sound like one I ve tried hard to imagine On the second page of Sally Rooney s universally acclaimed, Booker longlisted novel is the following paragraph He puts his hands in his pockets and suppresses an irritable sigh, but suppresses it with an audible intake of breath, so that it still sounds like a sigh What I get the hand in the pockets bit, but how the hell does the rest of it work A sigh is an exhalation and I have no idea how any attempt to su...

    I wanted to like this bookthan I did How thrilling that the author hailed as Salinger for the Snapchat generation is Irish, and from my own province of Connacht at that There are moments in this novel that would certainly back up such a bold claim But I believe that she is a writer still honing her craft Not quite the finished article just yet, but with all the potential to become a literary heavyweight.In the beginning we meet Connell and Marianne, two young people growing up the we I wanted to like this bookthan I did How thrilling that the author hailed as Salinger for the Snapchat generation is Irish, and from my own province of Connach...

    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 chees...
