Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in the west of Ireland, but the similarities end there. In school, Connell is popular and well-liked, while Marianne is a loner. But when the two strike up a conversation - awkward but electrifying - something life-changing begins.

Normal People is a story of mutual fascination, friendship and love. It takes us from that first conversation to the years beyond, in the company of two people who try to stay apart but find they can't.

The best young novelist - indeed one of the best novelists - I've read in years. (Olivia Laing New Statesman)
Rooney has given us a spellbinding twenty-first-century love story, and asserted herself as one of the major young writers in the English-speaking world. (TLS)
Effortlessly brilliant . . . tender and devastating. (Guardian Books of the Year)
The best book I read last year. (Nigella Lawson)
Best novel this year by a country mile is Normal People by Sally Rooney . . . Brilliant. (Spectator Books of the Year)
Love, sex, class, work, miscommunication and melancholy are all described in prose that is somehow at once lapidary and mysterious; glittering but with the feeling of something moving like weather behind the sentences. (New Statesman Books of the Year)
