“But part of the feeling was knowing the terrible hold he’d had over her, and still had, and could not foresee ever losing.”

Normal People is a love story about on and off relationship between Connell and Marianna who met in high school and leads on right throughout college.

This book is defiantly not for a younger audience.

I found this book compelling. In saying that it was very slow at some points, but pushing through those parts was worth it. Once I got into it I was committed.
The characters were easy to get to know, but not easy to work out. It was easy to love and hate at times.
The book felt a little bit awkwardly written at first as I am used to reading first-person perspectives but once I got into it; it was pleasant. It has defiantly changed my view on both this style of writing and this style of book and the type of book.

Normal People was a very mature book compared to what I usually read, but I enjoyed it.

Defiantly not for the younger audience.
All in all, I would recommend this book to people who love unconventional love stories, third-person books, and books that follow one or two characters.
