Publisher Description

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. A sparkling new novel from the Young Writer of the Year Award winning author of Coversations with Friends.

Good

Purchased after the tv drama aired. I loved the show and liked the book however struggled with the end even more and at times felt genuinely deflated with the characters- I suppose a credit to the writing and the ability to pull the reader in.

A good read, realistic but not quite for those you love the stereotypical ‘happy ending’

Easy Read

An easy audiobook to follow.

Dull as dish water

With all the hype over this book, together with the tv series, I was really looking forward to it. But I’m completely bored and a little frustrated with the two lead characters. Nothing happens, all a bit ridiculous and I can’t wait to finish it.... yeah, 3 hours remaining. Biggest positive is that it’s beautifully read.
