Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in the west of Ireland, but the similarities end there. In school, Connell is popular and well-liked, while Marianne is a loner. But when the two strike up a conversation - awkward but electrifying - something life-changing begins.

Normal People is a story of mutual fascination, friendship and love. It takes us from that first conversation to the years beyond, in the company of two people who try to stay apart but find they can't.

Very overrated

Felt mostly confused to what was happening as I jumped back and forward constantly and the ending was a total let down, I thought it would be a good book with all the awards and reviews but I think it’s one of the worst books I’ve read in all honesty, wouldn’t recommend, it still confused in the whole meaning of the book.

Overrated - read One Day instead

The relationship between the two protagonists is never fully developed. Chapters skip through time, avoiding any real
storyline. Too similar in concept to other books out there. However, the style of writing is engaging, small details transport you into their lives but it’s let down by the arch of the story...
