Normal People

Normal People by Sally Rooney

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


A dark love story. Unpleasant or a turn on? Connell felt a bit of a sap, a tad gutless. Marianne? Not sure whether I liked her or not. Whether to feel sorry for her the way she didn’t really fit in, or admire her independence and containment. Was her submissiveness sad and distasteful? A result of her childhood treatment by her brother? Or did she really enjoy it? Was it normal for her? Are Connell and Marianne normal? Are their lives normal? Normal for some, weird for others? At least I managed to stay the distance and quite enjoy a Man Booker contender.
