Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in rural Ireland. The similarities end there; they are from very different worlds. When they both earn places at Trinity College in Dublin, a connection that has grown between them lasts long into the following years. This is an exquisite love story about how a person can change another person's life - a simple yet profound realisation that unfolds beautifully over the course of the novel. It tells us how difficult it is to talk about how we feel and it tells us - blazingly - about cycles of domination, legitimacy and privilege. Alternating menace with overwhelming tenderness, Sally Rooney's second novel breathes fiction with new life.… (mere)

Normal People af Sally Rooney

  1. 40
    One Day af David Nicholls (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Normal People is more explicit than One Day, but both of these character-driven novels follow a couple who can't resist each other and come together only to separate over and over again.
  2. 20
    Trust Exercise af Susan Choi (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Though Trust Exercise employs an unconventional storyline that unfolds with stylistically complex flair, and Normal People is more straightforward, both novels play with power dynamics within relationships and explore the limitations of communication.… (mere)

    Conversations with Friends af Sally Rooney (hazzabamboo)
    hazzabamboo: Her second, and even better - they cover quite similar ground

    In Paris with You: A Novel af Clémentine Beauvais (SandSing7)
    SandSing7: The characters and their relationship are eerily similar, the writing is lovely and poetic (even though Paris is written in verse), and it's super weird that even the endings are exactly the same.

This book was so angsty, I loved it! It’s a super quick read and I loved the main characters. ( )

Well-developed, complex characters and creative chronology shows the challenges of a relationship over time, and the effects of abuse and anxiety. Great narration by Aoife McMahon. ( )

Interesting. Unique. The relationship between Connell and Marianne is, for me, heartbreaking. I keep wanting to say, get it together you guys, communicate and be honest! So many missed opportunities. But in a way, I also totally get it--I have also experienced those missed opportunities, and trouble with communication, in my own life, first hand. And they are young--and both of their lives so complicated. But again, aren't all of our lives complicated? So I'm torn about this book. ( )

Maybe it's due to a generational gap, maybe to cultural one, but I found this story uninspiring and uninteresting. The style is flat, the characters dull and the plot predictable. The whole novel seems to revolve on what people think of each other, all of them living in each other's judgment. The important theme of domestic abuse is treated almost as a by-line; although it is resolved, we never know why or how it started and escalated. I couldn't identify with any of the characters who seemed lifeless and aimless to me.
It's a coming of age with none of the magic of better known, and better written, novels. I'll keep guessing as to reasons of its popularity. ( )

[T]he idealized reading experience Rooney casts for her young writer is a magnetic mingling of literary minds that sharpens an intelligence capable not merely of imagining others but of imagining how to be close to them, even how to live with the responsibility of their happiness and dreams.
tilføjet af ScattershotSteph | RedigerThe Nation, Hannah Gold (Sep 17, 2019)
 
[U]pon critical reflection, the novel’s territory comes to seem like more fog than not. Which is to say: it’s a novel about university life, but without collegiate descriptions or interactions with professors or references to intellectual histories or texts; about growing up, but without any adults [. . .]; about Ireland, but without any sense of place, national history, or even physical description (if Joyce wrote Ulysses in order that Dublin might be reconstructed brick by brick, you’d be hard pressed to even break ground using Normal People); about Connell becoming a writer, but without any meaningful access to his interior development, or any sense conveyed of how his creative “passion” inflects his life; and, finally, about Marianne and Connell’s intertwined fate where we are only intermittently given access to sustained moments of intimacy.
 
Rooney's slivers of insight into how Marianne and Connell wrestle with their emotions and question their identity in the process made it one of the most realistic portrayals of young love I've read. Their relationship is rife with mistakes, misunderstandings, and missed chances that could be simplified if only they communicated and didn't subconsciously suppress their feelings, as millennials are wont to do.
 
Here, youth, love and cowardice are unavoidably intertwined, distilled into a novel that demands to be read compulsively, in one sitting.
 
[W]hile Rooney may write about apparent aimlessness and all the distractions of our age, her novels are laser-focused and word-perfect. They build power by a steady accretion of often simple declarative sentences that track minuscule shifts in feelings.

It is one of the secrets in that change of mental poise which has been fitly named conversion, that to many among us neither heaven nor earth has any revelation till some personality touches theirs with a peculiar influence, subduing them into receptiveness.
George Eliot, Daniel Deronda
