Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in the west of Ireland, but the similarities end there. In school, Connell is popular and well-liked, while Marianne is a loner. But when the two strike up a conversation - awkward but electrifying - something life-changing begins. Normal People is a story of mutual fascination, friendship and love. It takes us from that first conversation to the years beyond, in the company of two people who try to stay apart but find they can't.

    I loved this so much I read it twice! Everyone has someone that they are meant to be with, sometimes it works out and sometimes your paths keep crossing without ever finding the same tracks.

    Novel becomes deeper when more character perception and analysis emerge in the last third.. The language and flowing structure saved it from residing on the student chick-lit shelf. The narration had a bit too much ‘charm’ for my taste and mispronunciations were irritating.

    Really enjoyed this book overall, it took me through all the emotions and at times I was frustrated but I felt like the characters had a depth to them that was left up to the reader to explore Watched the series and really enjoyed that it was faithful to the book

    I found the book Normal People very sad. It told the story of situations in the lives of a group of young people from school days up and through their college experiences. As each chapter forwarded the story by 3 months and more you were left wondering what happened to each character during this time. Marianne was so messed up it made me feel quite sick and Cathal the main male character was supposed to be super intelligent was really a very weak young man behind it all. To me this was a story built around the subject of young people who seemed to be going no where and needed help big time.

    I absolutely loved this - the writing, the characters, the way they were read. I haven’t been so drawn into a story in a very long time. Sally Rooney is a fascinating writer.
