Normal People by Sally Rooney

 

Normal People

Well there was not much ‘normal’ about this fabulous novel. It blew me away and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Sally Rooney, in her inimitable sparse yet poignant style, tells a story that wrings the heart and kept me turning the pages with frenzied angst. I enjoyed ‘Conversation with Friends’, which I read back at the tail-end of 2017, but I enjoyed this even more. I loved its honesty and simplicity. I could hear the Irishness of the voices and it was very evocative of Dublin. I don’t want to give any of the story away, but the characters leapt from the pages and I was enraptured by their trials and tribulations from start to finish. A must read for 2019!
