I finally found a book that I can really get into! It was shaping up to be a poor #24in48 #readathon for me, until now.

atla That‘s a good feeling! I spent 2-3 hours yesterday sampling different books before I finally got sucked in - but my perseverance paid off! 😋 2d

We went for a walk today and I dropped a couple of books into the little free library near our house. I bailed on them, but it seemed like a good way to find someone who might like them.

RaimeyGallant Did you bail on the Kate Norton, too? Was it the paranormal? That's why I never started it. 2d
JacqMac @RaimeyGallant I did bail on it. I didn‘t like the writing, which is weird, because I usually love Kate Morton. And there were so many characters, it was hard to follow. I reached a point where I just didn‘t care anymore. 2d
RaimeyGallant @JacqMac Good to know. 1d

Rooney is a skillful writer. The characters are rich and the narrative focused on the story. She weaves in just enough details to develop the story and characters. Her tone is somewhat muted, though, which takes away a little of the emotional impact for me. Otherwise, I enjoyed this story of modern romance between two young adults still trying to understand themselves and their places in the world. 4⭐️

No, thank you.

jb72 I‘ve read two of her short stories and really didn‘t like either one. 2d
JoyBlue @jb72 Then I‘m guessing you mightn‘t be thrilled with this full-length work either. When I finished, I was surprised that it‘s under 300 pages—it *seemed* so much longer. Ugh! 2d
jb72 @JoyBlue Part of my issue was the lack of punctuation (especially quotation marks). I felt like it made the story harder to read. 2d
See All 7 Comments
JoyBlue @jb72 I listened, so I was spared that difficulty. But, I read that in some other reviews. Aren‘t there editors anymore?! 2d
jb72 @JoyBlue That‘s what I thought at first when I read the first story, but when the second story was the same I figured it was the new norm. I find it pathetic and lazy for writers to misuse/leave out grammar and punctuation. 2d
JoyBlue @jb72 If that's the new norm, how sad for all of us. That's unacceptable! 2d
jb72 @JoyBlue I feel the same. In my opinion grammar and punctuation are extremely important in life. With all the short cut social media today, it‘s vital to make sure our language skills are on point. 2d

#LetsTravelJuly Day 21: Rooney‘s female protagonist, Marianne, has an emotional vulnerability that opens itself up to the world – with a degree of defiance and brokenness. There is also the fervent but failed attempts at taking control and making meaning of her world that has repeatedly made her see the absolute worst in herself and in others. Rooney clearly is a pride of #Ireland. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-khf

Not what I expected, but a compelling read. Prompts me to wonder, who am I, really? How much do I allow others judgments to dictate my life? Am I more “ normal” (or less?) than I believe myself to be? Does it matter? Am I Connell or Marianne? Bits of both?

My Book of the Month selection for April was Sally Rooney's "Normal People." As a writer of Irish fiction, it's important to me that I read up on my genre, so I'm always thrilled when BOTM features an ideal selection I can add to my bookshelf. ????

I am still in a bit of shock from this novel--a bit gutted, honestly. Absolutely worth a read, though if you are anything like me you'll chuck it across the room in a temper (onto the couch, let's not get crazy and risk actual damage to the tome, now!) at least a half dozen times. And that was all in the space of the single day it took me to devour this book.

As I was reading, I didn't particularly feel like I cared about any of these people. And yet....I didn't want to stop reading. Rooney writes a remarkably true and unflinching portrait of two young people trying to find their way. I'm still worried about them.

"Life offers up these moments of joy despite everything."

This book is simple & deep at the same time, with a focus on humanity, relationships, the keeping up of appearances, & how the decisions we make for our lives are often intertwined with the choices made by other people we know or love. The main characters feel very real to me. I really wish that I could have reached into the book just to guide them through their miscommunications though.

While I really enjoyed this book, the characters were not easy to love. Marianne‘s self-hatred and Connell‘s inability to say what he means made for so many frustrating misunderstandings between them. The millennial angst and social pressures they experience were very relatable, but many of their problems were self-induced and difficult to sympathize with. I applaud Rooney‘s ability to render the difficulty of young adult relationships, 👇🏼

Kimberlone Though the unresolved ending made the whole book feel somewhat slight in the end. 4 stars on Goodreads. 2w

I read the preview online and found it so mesmerizing that I had to buy the kindle copy immediately. This was my first time reading Sally Rooney and so maybe it was just that her voice and character development are new to me; in that regard this book was love at first read. The way she characterized the relationship between C+M was perfection. I was a little bummed about the ending, but maybe that‘s because I never wanted it to end?

This book was not bad, it just wasn‘t for me.

To be honest I found it painful.

Like a train wreck, one is compelled to look, despite the carnage and pain, and despite not wanting to look at all finds it impossible to look away....Wanting to know how it ends, hoping everything works out, but knowing it cannot.

Well written, and psychologically accurate. But not for me. It hurt too much to enjoy it.

Not much happens in this book, yet I was so invested from the beginning. I'm usually not one to pick character-driven novels as my favorites, but I really enjoyed every scene. It reminded me a lot of Celeste Ng's writing style, so if you love her books, you'll love Rooney's Normal People. This is our work bookclub pick, so I'm excited to discuss it with the team as there's a lot to unpack, and I'm not sure what it all means yet.

When I finished this five days ago, I was ready to give it all (or most of) the praise I‘d been hearing. Now, I‘m having trouble remembering the details.😳

I can tell you that it‘s about privilege, power, & mental health; it‘s about communication (in a meta way, re: the act of writing, & interpersonally); it‘s about a love, twisted & made unrecognizable & then recognizable again — in an endless boomerang. It‘s not uplifting. It *is* well-written.

monalyisha Also, as I was reading, I kept coming back to, “I wonder what Tara Westover would think of this book.” This story + “Educated“, Westover‘s memoir, have some similar themes (the difference being that one describes a real, lived life. Ugh). (edited) 2w

3. Where the crawdads sing by Delia Owens
4. Heads of the colored people by Nafissa Thompson-Spires
5. Less by Andrew Sean Greer
6. Educated by Tara Westover
7. Salvage the bones by Jesmyn Ward

Normal people started out great. It was super fast with an intriguing writing style that forced me to dial in and focus. Then it flattened out quite a bit and that is where I hit the struggle bus. Thankfully the ending wrapped things up nicely and saved this one for me. Not my favorite but not the worst.

Well then. So many thoughts! (Skipping right past the weird lack of punctuation) I think she nailed the almost desperation and pedestal placing we can do with our first loves. However ultimately I found this unsatisfying - relationships and characters cycle vs grow and the flat storytelling loses its interest after the first half. Moving, I felt for the characters but was not invested in their story

These Irish kids started out interesting but began to bore me to tears. Loads of emotion related flatly. No quotation marks (which I hate). When Connell and Marianne went to college, I lost interest. This kind of story works best in high school, where it has a meaningful backdrop and can remain all angsty and Breakfast-Clubesque. I‘m also weary of waiting for the young couple‘s socioeconomic class difference to mean something.

BookwormM The book went nowhere so you are not missing anything 4w
jillrhudy I suspected as much. It‘s a shame really, because she nailed that whole uncomfortable adolescent love vibe. 4w
Aimeesue I liked it, but I'm not bothered by the weird lack of quotation marks. I think it's better viewed as a whole, where you can see how each affected the outcome of the other's life so far. That's kind of the point of this one, I think. 3w
