Marianne og Connell er som skabt for hinanden, men de kan ikke selv se det. I stedet dissekerer de deres forhold i endeløse samtaler, hvor de både forstår og misforstår hinanden. Tilsyneladende er afstand i tid og sted en nødvendighed for gensidig og samtidig forståelse

Normal People af Sally Rooney

  1. 60
    Samme dag næste år 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. 30
    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.
  5. 00
    You Have to Make Your Own Fun Around Here af Frances Macken (WendyRobyn)
    WendyRobyn: These are both coming of age stories in which young adults reassess their childhood relationships after moving away from their Irish home village.

As a smart anxious depressive social oddball in high school/college myself this book was sorta right up my alley, though I read Zola alone at my locker instead of Proust, and approved of Marx rather than actually read him. The stuttering on-again-off-again fumbling relationship between Connell and Marianne also rang a few bells. So it worked for me and was a great book to read after Nabokov's Ada, which also features two intelligent young people and their kinky messy relationship, but where Nabokov was soulless and generally style over substance, Rooney is substance and genuine humanity over style, which edges close to YA territory but doesn't quite seem to fit there.

3.5/5- author thoughtfully conveys emotional nuances of love and relationships between young people in an eileen chang kind of way. she captures the emotional realities of the 2 characters in these little vignettes that are quite lovely and i suspect they will resonate with me for some time. that said, these same ideas are revisited over and over again. so by the end of the book, these characters largely remain unchanged. they exhibit very little emotional growth (marianne especially) and there are no repercussions to their lack of change.

there are moments of profound emotional depth scattered throughout but the characters remain undercooked and the story suffers because of it.

Overall I enjoyed this book. Some of it was pretty brutal which made me rate it lower. I listened to it and the brogue made it interesting. I recommend the book. ( )

Oh my, these two poor broken people. I just couldn’t look away from their messy relationship that somehow was sweet and lovely and awful all at once.

Ci vuole del talento per raccontare una storia banale di due persone normali che fanno cose normali e che non hanno intenzioni di svelarti il senso della vita tramite la loro esistenza. Il rischio di far addormentare chi legge è piuttosto alto – voglio dire, di vita normale mi basta la mia, cos’altro puoi dirmi della normalità che già non conosca?

È vero che siamo tuttu normali in maniera diversa, ma a questo serve avere una vita sociale: si incontrano altre normalità, le si conosce e ci si stabiliscono dei rapporti, a volte buoni, a volte meno buoni.

Rooney è riuscita a scrivere un romanzo godibilissimo senza raccontare niente di che, due vite, quelle di Connell e Marianne, che, anche se non ci sono affini in prima persona, abbiamo incrociato qua e là nei nostri rapporti sociali. Perché sono – appunto – persone normali.

Non ne scrivo in maniera follemente entusiasta perché nel finale non mi ha convinto. Gli eventi delle ultimi pagine mi sono sembrati molto costruiti e per me hanno rotto la finzione letteraria, gettando un’ombra sgradevole sul resto del romanzo. Oltre al fatto che, passati i giorni, il mio ricordo di Persone normali si fa sempre più sfumato.

Potrebbe essere una buona lettura estiva: se non l’avete ancora letto e volete sapere perché è un romanzo così chiacchierato, potrebbe essere un buon titolo da leggere in vacanza (tenendo conto che c’è della violenza domestica che magari potrebbe rovinarvi il relax). ( )

[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.
