Kirkus Reviews - BookPage - BookRiot "Absolutely engrossing and
surprisingly heartbreaking with more depth, subtlety, and insight than any
one novel deserves."--Stephanie Danler Connell and Marianne grew up in the
same small town, but the similarities end there. At 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. 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 at university,
Marianne and Connell circle one another, straying toward other people and
possibilities but always magnetically, irresistibly drawn back together.
And 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. Normal People is the 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 that they can't.
Praise for Normal People "[A] novel that demands to be read compulsively,
in one sitting."--The Washington Post "Arguably the buzziest novel of the
season, Sally Rooney's elegant sophomore effort . . . is a worthy successor
to Conversations with Friends. Here, again, she unflinchingly explores
class dynamics and young love with wit and nuance."--The Wall Street
Journal "[Rooney] has been hailed as the first great millennial novelist
for her stories of love and late capitalism. . . . [She writes] some of the
best dialogue I've read."--The New Yorker
