Normal People by Sally Rooney - Book Review


Normal People by Sally Rooney will be one of this year's best loved books. It's on the Man Booker Longlist for 2018 and is my favourite of the eight contenders I have read so far.

Normal People is a coming of age story about Marianne and Connell who can't quite seem to get it together. Sally Rooney recreates the angst, insecurities and social dilemmas of young adulthood - remember those days? (If you don't this book will bring them rushing back.)

Normal People reminds me of One Day by David Nicholls with a dash of Curtis Sittenfeld's Prep and Tom Wolfe's I am Charlotte Simmons mixed in.

Thank you for being part of The Reading Experiment. Happy reading!
