Beautiful World, Where Are You: from the internationally bestselling author of Normal People Hardcover – 19 October 2021
Enhance your purchase
Alice, a novelist, meets Felix, who works in a distribution warehouse, and asks him if he'd like to travel to Rome with her. In Dublin, her best friend Eileen is getting over a break-up, and slips back into flirting with Simon, a man she has known since childhood.
Alice, Felix, Eileen and Simon are still young-but life is catching up with them. They desire each other, they delude each other, they get together, they break apart. They have sex, they worry about sex, they worry about their friendships and the world they live in. Are they standing in the last lighted room before the darkness, bearing witness to something? Will they find a way to believe in a beautiful world?

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The first half of the book was ‘scatty’ - characterisations very mixed up and hard to discern.
Eventually the four main characters evolved, but as a reader my feelings about each constantly changed. As they changed? I don’t know.
Sadly Sally, I can’t recommend your new book.
About two thirds of the way into the book I became so absorbed in what Sally Rooney was saying that I didn’t even pick up the phone when it rang

Rooney has a penchant for writing pretentious and self-obsessed, but this book takes that to another (painful) level. I will admit it was a real grind for me to finish, but I just about managed it. I just assume it is trendy to say she’s brilliant, to take pictures of the book for the gram and to show you’re current and on the pulse- but it’s a tedious, meandering novel with not even a sliver of a saving grace.
