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
  4. 00
    In Paris With You af Clementine 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.

I find it hard to believe I didn't write a review of this book, but I'm going through my Duplicates here on Goodreads and neither version that I shelved has a review. Bummer.

All I can say is that I watched the Hulu series first and cried my eyes out. Good Lord, I love Connell and Marianne so much! They could totally make a second season and I hope that they do. I need a second season.

That was in May, 2020, and then I read the book a month later. Loved it. ( )

I found this book to be very good and very frustrating at the same time. I also find it extremely hard to review it... to find the proper words to describe how I feel about it. So we meet Marianne and Connell while they are still in school, not long before they go to College. Marianne comes from a rich but VERY dysfunctional family. Connell lives alone with his mother who works as a cleaner for Marianne's mother. Connell is the popular guy in school, Marianne the awkward free spirit who is occasionally the victim of bullying. They both click on a certain level, they become close friends. And one might think that they are so totally made for each other that it is natural, that they end up as a couple. And here comes the frustrating part of the book. Not frustrating in a "I don't like that book" way but in the sense of "I want to slap these two over and over because of their way of (non-)communicating with each other". Connell is a nice guy but he can't help but make stupid-ass decisions every once in a while and I wanted to kick his butt more than once. And Marianne is a complicated case due to being emotionally abused by her mother and idiot brother.

The amount of things being unsaid between Marianne and Connell, leading to unnecessary problems, is gigantic and made me want to throw the book against the wall several times. I had a feeling that these two were the only people with the ability to fully understand each other's worlds but never really noticed. This is not a feel-good love story! This book is in parts really depressing. But it's still a good book. Not a brilliant one though, and I see why it is so polarizing.

I had some issues with how Marianne's brother was portrait though: very one-dimensional. And we never really learn why her family acts the way they do with her. It seems to be so completely out of nowhere. A bit more insight would have been good. ( )

Apparently I love to listen in on people's conversations based on the books I have read and loved by Sally Rooney and Rachel Cusk. Both of them have the very rare ability to write realistic reading conversations that are effortless. None of the stilted and unrealistic language that often appears in literature here, you fall into "listening" as you read (if that makes any sense). And while most real life conversation is kind of boring the conversations in this book are compelling. In fact they are often exasperating as I found myself talking back to the characters (in my head I think...I hope I didn't vocalize as I read on the subway!). After a while I realized how completely unrealistic I was being. The two protagonists in this novel are in college and let's face it most people's decision making is not all that strong then, especially when it comes to interpersonal relationships. So I just went along, living with Connell and Marianne as they tried (emphasis on tried) to figure things out. Such is life. I would love to have Ms. Rooney eventually revisit them in a few years to see where they have gotten to. But if this is all we ever see of these "Normal People" (got it, the title is a clue to judging their behavior...they are NORMAL!) then I'm thrilled I have spent these 300 plus pages with them. After the two books Ms. Rooney has written so far I know I'm anxiously ready for another. I do think that I enjoyed "Conversations With Friends" a bit more but the difference is very slight. Thanks for another great read. ( )

Normal People is very intense, and sometimes intensely strange. I could not look away, though, even when the characters' thoughts and actions made me squirm. Rooney's sentences are a marvel, and her granular examination of Connell's and Marianne's thoughts and emotions are startlingly revelatory. Quite an affecting book. ( )

[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.

Marianne answers the door when Connell rings the bell.
Citater
Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
It feels powerful to him to put an experience down in words, like he's trapping it in a jar and it can never fully leave him.
That's money, the substance that makes the world real. There's something so corrupt and sexy about it.
Outside her breath rises in a fine mist and the snow keeps falling, like a ceaseless repetition of the same infinitesimally small mistake.
His appearance is like a favorite piece of music to her, sounding a little different each time she hears it.
Not for the first time Marianne thinks cruelty does not only hurt the victim, but the perpetrator also, and maybe more deeply and more permanently. You learn nothing very profound about yourself simply by being bullied; but by bullying someone else you learn something you can never forget.
