    Normal people - Sally Rooney

    It is true that the book has a classics vibe to it. It captures what it feels like to be young, navigating the nuances of young love and self realization. I enjoyed it but I must say that it is slightly overrated and didn't leave any indelible mark on my memory.

    Normal people

    This book was fanatical! It was funny, yet sincere I enjoyed every minute I'm kind of sad I dont have a hard copy that I could have read because it would have been worth the money. Sally Rooney really does capture the essence of 'normal people' and their behaviours often described as 'abnormal' in a way that almost makes the story feel real. The topics and events are of such relation, so current, that even the 'abnormalist' of people should be able to relate and find comfort in knowing that it's usually the differences we share as individuals that bring us together and make us 'normal'.

    It's okay, it passes the time.

    I'm not sure how to describe this book, it's your standard 'will they/won't they' storyline, which in and of itself is a pretty safe and basic narrative. It captured the feeling of growing up and the insecurity of that with painstaking attention to detail; however, I can't help but feel the characters were annoying and this book would've been much shorter if someone had just knocked their heads together and told them to communicate. They jump to extraordinary conclusions throughtout the story, which seems to be the only way the plot advances, and at no point reflect on past experiences as a learning opportunity. Having said that, the depictions of mental health and isolation in university did feel genuine. That was about the only part that made these characters feel like real human beings as opposed to plot devices. TL,DR: if you're looking to pass the time I suppose this is as good as any 'missed connection' story out there. Just don't expect the characters to behave with consideration at any stage.
