My second read of the year.. is a DNF 👀
Normal people by Sally Rooney.
I got about half way through. I liked the tension between both characters and I was DESPERATE to see that grow and evolve in whatever way it could.
But it just didn’t. Nothing happened. The writing style for me was passive, eventless, and too descriptive.
I just couldn’t get into it. I’ll try Conversations with friends next instead for January. People have said they didn’t get the hype and preferred the program, so I’ll watch that as well.
I really wanted to like it, and I’m glad many have, but for me there was too much ‘suspense building’ and it just fell flat.. not for me!
