No one can be independent of other people completely so why not give up the attempt she thought go running in the other direction depend on people for everything allow them to depend on you why not This is going to be a polarizing book I mean I think I liked it And I say liked it in the sense that it made me very miserable It is a uiet character study almost a YA novel but not uite and it is a profoundly lonely and depressing love storyI didn t begin by liking it Normal People follows two characters Marianne and Connell through adolescence and into early adulthood and they begin by being the kind of uber precocious teenagers who read Proust and Marx for fun It took a while for me to settle into their story My initial impression was that this was going to be some kind of John Green for adults which is not something that floats my particular boatWithout fully realizing it though this book had crept uietly under my skin The relationship between Marianne and Connell is angsty sure but it felt painfully real They are so flawed marred by unlikable characteristics and yet I could not stop caring about them Not for the first time Marianne thinks cruelty does not only hurt the victim but the perpetrator also and maybe deeply and permanently You learn nothing very profound about yourself simply by being bullied but by bullying someone else you learn something you can never forget The story is really just about the two of them and their relationship In high school Marianne is a smart and wealthy girl but is socially ostracized and emotionally abused at home whereas Connell is working class but very popular Connell s mum works as a cleaner for Marianne s family They begin a secret sexual relationship that falls apart when Connell fears his friends will find out The compelling dynamic between them drives the story issues of class and social status cause much conflictIn college the two meet again This time Marianne is popular and Connell is feeling increasingly depressed The two of them lean on each other time and again as they move through a social world filled with social expectations There s a bit of a When Harry Met Sally vibe except that this book is soul destroying Nothing had meant to Rob than the approval of others to be thought well of to be a person of status He would have betrayed any confidence any kindness for the promise of social acceptance There s clear criticism of our constant need to impress and perform for others in a world that grows ever connected Much of the tragedy that befalls Marianne and Connell is caused by other people peer pressure and social expectations It is very sad to think that someone might give up who they love the most because they can t deal with how it makes them look to othersThe pair s inability to adeuately communicate is frustrating but feels realistic I was on the verge of tearing my hair out at all the things left unsaid in this book but I think it was a good kind of frustration The kind that comes from caring too much I feel like there are any number of reasons I could have hated Normal People but I didn t I actually kinda loved it It s a weird awkward depressing novel about a connection formed between two very different people who find exactly what they need and perhaps a lot that they don t in each other CW sexual assault domestic abuse drug use casual racism called out depression anxiety suicide suicidal ideationBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube
