Book Review Normal People
Normal People by Sally Rooney
I had heard so much about this book that when I saw it I just had to read it, even though really I knew nothing about it.
It was a book I sped though; the writing was just superb. Its a book where not a lot really happens but you fall in love with the characters and their dysfunctional lives, and want to know more.
It was heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. And in its pages are so may life lessons about love, life, mental illness and relationships. The characters felt very modern and very real. I must admit, I did want a rather more tied- up ending; having been on this journey with them I felt like I wanted everything to end neatly, but just like life I guess it didn't and actually after I got over the fact that I was cross, it absolutely suited the characters and to do anything else would have not served them. A brilliant, quick read that I highly recommend.
