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 Sally Rooney is the real deal Normal People has been lavished with praise from critics longlisted for the Man Booker prize and adapted for television by the BBC And that's just in its first week of publication All that attention will no doubt attract uite a few readers who would not ordinarily touch this subject with a barge pole Because this bookA Is about young peopleB Is a love story but not a 'romance novel'C Contains a fair bit of sex which is crucial to the storytelling btw and is not graphicAll of which possibly also the fact that the author is a 27 year old woman means that Normal People will inevitably be dismissed by some as frivolous It isn’t This is a confident accomplished and serious work Of Rooney’s debut Conversations with Friends I said in my review it ‘occasionally scrapes close to the bone’ Well Normal People cuts to the core Normal People is not out to inspire instruct entertain or talk down to anyone which makes it something of a refreshing anomaly in current fiction about young people It is a novel for anyone young or old that simply presents the truth of youthful experiences without the filters of nostalgia or sentimentality It invites you to inhabit the psyche of someone else – two someone elses Connell and Marianne – to identify with them and to feel their pain and turmoil For the reader who connects to that it is wracking The story focuses only on the pivotal moments for these two characters jumping forward three weeks six months or five minutes as needed to excise all the uneventful bits of life and leave us with the most emotionally intense supercut possible It follows them from high school in a small town through their years at university in Dublin as the dynamic between them shifts with their surroundings and social circle They’re not officially 'together' the whole time or even most of the time but they always figure in each other’s lives in a significant waySally Rooney writes with such precision that this all feels painfully true She conjures the tension and emotion in a scene just from the way someone wrings out a dish sponge; she conveys the full weight of feeling from a look or a shrug In Rooney’s imagining Connell and Marianne as separate entities are less important than the interplay between them – their relationship dynamic and the influence each of them has on shaping the other that’s the real stuff of this book How strange to feel herself so completely under the control of another person but also how ordinary 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 There’s irony here and self conscious posturing though not nearly as much as in CWF but earnestness truth and kindness as well In addition to the central relationship are issues of class and intellectual integrity It's a particularly astute look at the rebuild of self that teenagers undergo in the transition from school to uni how it allows some to thrive while others stumble and in some ways is just an illusion after all So there’s hype and there’s backlash to the hype and Normal People is sure to resonate powerfully with some readers and not at all for others If you like a minutely observed novel about people and feelings that isn’t mawkish I'd say give it a go

Text Normal People

Normal PeopleConcealA 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 Man booker prize long list nominee and Costa book awards nominee This is a book that has many admirers and sadly it didn't work for me and while I would love to agree with all the judges on this one I only struggled to the end because it was a bookclub read It is difficult to go against the grain on a book that is nominated for so many awards So as always you need to judge for yourself because books fit people differently uite simply this book didn't Fit Me I really have no interest in reading about 18 20 something year college kid's onoff sexual relationships where they seem to only exist in their own little complex bubble and this book felt like a bubble It is described as exuisite love stroy which I honestly found nothing exuisite or no love in this one The characters of Connell and Marianne were dislikable and boring and the on off will they wont they relationship became repetitive reading The only character which I liked and felt any connection with in the novel was LorrainePerhaps this is suited for a younger audience where they connect with the college scene or for readers who like complex relationship stories but for me this was a struggle from start to finish
