    Not my cup of tea

    Still unsure what all the hype around this book is... Normal People by Sally Rooney I have to sadly say did not do a lot of me. It has been on my to read list for a while now and I was looking forward to getting into it. But it didn't even start off on a good foot with me. Marianne and Connell have grown up together. Marianne is from money and Connell's mum works as their cleaner. They go through high school with a strange secret relationship in fear his friends will make fun of him. But this relationship becomes on and off for some years to come. Neither of them admitting to their true feelings or more so not understanding them. Firstly the main thing that really bothered me with this book was the lack of grammar. I'm not sure if I've missed something here but this completely threw me. It made the book a bit of a mission to read at points and definitely was a main factor in me loosing interested in the story. Secondly even though I wasn't touched by any of the characters the main character Marianne frustrated me throughout the whole book. She is popular yet unliked, beautiful but also ugly, I feel like they were trying to create to much around her. I found her quite bland and this affected the main aspect of this book being her relationship with Connell. Their relationship was described as romantic love story but I failed to find anything about their relationship loving or romantic. Their on again off again relationship became tedious and annoying. At points I wanted to yell at them, Stay together or split up no one else cares we are all getting bored of this saga. Overall I'm disappointed I was unable to connect with this book. I'm normally a fan of a YA love story, but this one was not your typical love story and missed the mark for me unfortunately.

    Very enjoyable

    Marvellously well written, enjoyed every single page of the book I read. Characters of flesh and blood stay with you for à while, even after you finished reading.

    Gripping

    I read this book from cover to cover over a day. Page turner you can’t put down for wanting to know what happens next. Well written and totally gripping.

    Amazing

    The first couple of pages were a bit hard to read but I soon got the hang of the layout. I loved this book, just found the ending a bit abrupt. Wish there was a more indepth ending Overall amazing book !!

    Normal People

    I found the writing style of the author somewhat irritating. The use of the present tense when the story was set in the past didn't fit well for me. Also the lack of speech marks made it confusing at times. The story line itself was compelling enough to keep me reading. A younger person might have been more prepared to forgive the writing style.
