'The best novel published this year.' Times

Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in rural Ireland. The similarities end there; they are from very different worlds. When they both earn places at Trinity College in Dublin, a connection that has grown between them lasts long into the following years.

This is an exquisite love story about how a person can change another person's life - a simple yet profound realisation that unfolds beautifully over the course of the novel. It tells us how difficult it is to talk about how we feel and it tells us - blazingly - about cycles of domination, legitimacy and privilege. Alternating menace with overwhelming tenderness, Sally Rooney's second novel breathes fiction with new life.

Tedious, tedious, tedious.
I gave it half a star. Don't know what for.
Endless communication inadequacies.
Over & over & over. The same English inability to ask for what one wants.
Author shortlisted for a Dylan Thomas literature prize.
An insult to Dylan Thomas in my opinion ...

Very absorbing, finely written, very perceptive about complex relationships, emotionally textured. Also interesting and subtle depiction of class in Ireland.
