Description:
A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLERLONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018'The best novel published this year.' TimesConnell 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.

Reviews
I am glad I read this and I did root for the characters BUT unless she includes more plot I will not try her again. She is 28 years old and writes about her generation's time at school and university and it rings true and she writes well but apart from the young main characters, there is no detail in the characterisation of the older generation who so affect the abused romantic leads. Is the book a cautionary tale for those in abusive relationships to wake up and refuse to be accepting of what comes because they are not worthless?.
