Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in the west of Ireland, but the similarities end there. In 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. Normal People is a 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 they can't.

What is 'normal' or ordinary? That is the question the reader is invited to ask: from the moment you read the cover to the last page. Humanity is all here. Sadness, violence, horror, joy, jealousy, kindness, cruelty, romance. This book is written by a young author, and the ending puzzles me - I wonder how an older writer would leave it? A good read for book groups.
