Book Overview
NOW AN EMMY-NOMINATED HULU ORIGINAL SERIES - NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - A stunning novel about the transformative power of relationships ( People ) from the author of Conversations with Friends, a master of the literary page-turner (J.

At 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. A year later, they're both studying at Trinity College in Dublin. Marianne has found her feet in a new social world while Connell hangs at the sidelines, shy and uncertain. Throughout their years at university, Marianne and Connell circle one another, straying toward other people and possibilities but always magnetically, irresistibly drawn back together. And as she veers into self-destruction and he begins to search for meaning elsewhere, each must confront how far they are willing to go to save the other. Normal People is the 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 that they can't.

   Normal People Review
This book is great, but not for everyone. I loved it! It’s good if you’re the type of person that can appreciate and find the beauty in what could appear to be mundane to some. If you were to ask me what this book is about I would first respond with: “nothing” because it is truly just following the lives of the two main characters who aren’t living under any extreme circumstances. But I would also tell you about the beauty in Marianne and Connell’s intimate connection and how it makes for an amazingly raw story. If you’re an untraditional romantic, this book is for you :)
