"Originally published in hardcover in the United Kingdom by Faber & Faber, London, in 2018"--Title page verso
"At school Connell and Marianne pretend not to know each other. He's popular and well-adjusted, star of the school football team, while she is lonely, proud, and intensely private. But when Connell comes to pick his mother up from her job at Marianne's house, a strange and indelible connection grows between the two teenagers--one they are determined to conceal. 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" -- Amazon.com

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Not the best submitted by lostoria on August 4, 2019, 1:37pm I came in with high expectations, considering how much I'd heard about the book. However, once I started, my longing for this book to be good slowly started to diminish. The main characters were hard to empathize with since it felt like they didn't have much of a personality. Some of the actions of the characters didn't make sense. These two factors made it hard to read the book, considering that the book is very heavily character-focused rather than plot-driven. When I finished, I was heartily disappointed with how much the characters didn't learn/grow despite going through an entire college career. Not my favorite.

Normal People submitted by srussel on June 29, 2020, 7:32pm I also came in with super high expectations. The beginning and middle were very good, but the end was not satisfactory or all that conclusive.
